Hugs to you ... I know it helps me to say it out loud even if we all know where you are coming form. Somehow it feels a little less omnious if I put it out there. Hugs.

Poppy, when I begin to feel like that, I squeeze 2 fresh lemons into about 5 oz of
water and drink it; if I'm not better in 4 hours, I repeat the process. That should
calm you really very nicely inside in terms of your emotions.

The truth is that we build so much acid in tissues and organs in the body when
we are under stress of any kind (that's one reason why we try so hard to avoid
stress if we can) and it has a big role to play in feeling tone and in building that
acid. It's almost as if one causes the other.

The lemon and lime are probably the most alkaline foods we can ingest, though
they taste bitter, they are transformed in digestion into an alkaline residue that helps to remove acidity from the body. It works for some of us and it might work for you.

Give it 2 days please before you decide that it doesn't appear to be working for
you. If you feel better after 2 days, you'll know it helps, and thereafter, you should
use it only occasionally when you feel these low feeling tones beginning to emerge.

It actually helps to calm the mind and lift feeling tone.

How's your sleeping? Are you getting a full night's restful sleep? That is so
important in energizing our "battery". If you aren't, I'd see a doctor and ask for
a prescription for a helpful aid at least temporarily.

Xanax has been prescribed for me (.5 mg) to be used only when necessary for
release of tension or as a sleep aid. It's a good one, but can be addictive, so you'd
want to be very careful about using it only when you've had two or three nights
of little sound sleep. I've had a prescription for over two years and never had
a problem with addiction.

And, don't forget to drink plenty of purified water. That is really a pick up for
feeling tone.

You also need to eat more green vegetables and add a fresh salad to your meals daily.
They help to keep tissues and fluids more alkaline, and the slightly alkaline state
is the best for feeling good.

I keep worrying about your being afraid. That, you need to get out with a psychiatrist,
because it's hindering any effort you make to clear up the brain chemistry that is
causing such low feeling tone. That really needs to be swept from your mind by
talking about it in the privacy of a specialist's office, in my view.

Keep in touch about the feelings, please.

When you're this low, don't worry about looking far ahead. Put one foot in front of the other, when you have to move. Breathe in and out. Sigh. Try the lemon trick genetic suggested or some other feel-good. Don't stress with anything, be easy on yourself.

I've done the lemon, the water, the green food, the nice thoughts, the trees, the sunshine, and the smiling. It doesn't work. I'm not trying to shoot anyone down but that's the way it is I'm afraid. The exercise and the good sleep just don't help.
