. . . I wouldn't have to ask.
Another one of my phrases I may have heard somewhere, but I don't know where; so I claim it as my own. Yes, it's mine. I gave birth to it. I pushed that out. I need a push-present. A push-present for writing! Brilliant!
The phrase means a lot to me. I believe in lifelong learning. Without it I'd still be thinking that mall-bangs are a good idea. They were never a good idea!
So, along with all the nutritional and health research I do, I've stumbled on a new idea for my chronic insomnia. Seems there is a link with liver problems and insomnia. Una qué sorpresa enorme!
When I was seven years-old I contracted hepatitis. My memory of the whole event is being told I got sick because I didn't wash my hands thoroughly enough after peeing. I was a weird little kid and nearly washed off my skin thereafter. And having hepatitis compromised my liver a little bit.
When I was 18 years-old I caught mononucleosis. Romantically called "the kissing disease." I was an incredibly healthy young woman and kicked it in about three weeks. I do remember the doctors being a bit surprised. But again, my liver was mentioned as having a few "down" spots. I never really paid much attention.
So I'm doing some reading the other day and, just as a BTW moment in the book, it is thrown out there that liver issues cause insomnia.
I started jumping for joy; which is a bit over-reactive, but insomnia will do that to people! Ha!
I'm beginning a quest to detoxify my liver. I have a bad feeling pinot noir won't be involved. Sad!
Here is the list of things to try so far. The first thing is my diet may be too acidic.
- juice wheat grass (this one makes me want to poke out my eyes with hot sticks)
- green juices (what the hell are these?)
- tissue acidity equals toxicity
- alkaline water in glass bottles
I'll report back!
