Thanks again for your replies and this is to wish you the very best in your fast. i am sorry it has frequent healing crises. One thing someone told me that helped me was to rejoice in the healing crises since I knew my body was strongly healing at these times and i knew the fast was needed and was working. Also I have been reminded that THEY COME TO AN END! And there is no danger in relaxing into them and lasting through them... of course, it is all your own judgment but you know what i mean.
I am really appreciative, again, of your notes to me. i have got to have a sit-down-and-think with myself about the anxiety problem which you SO perceptively identified!!! (and how the anxiety creates my "misery," the misery that interferes with my keeping the fast) Any further thoughts of yours would be most appreciated!!
Will be back fasting (gently) soon,
Best wishes again,
Lovely things to distract you from the discomfort,
