Instead of sitting around waiting for the effects of my latest Prednisolone reduction to knock me for six, I decided to try and keep busy to distract myself. I managed to have a nice Bank Holiday weekend, spending time with my visiting Aunt, had a morning at the local antique fair, Sunday lunch with family and another lunch with a good friend. I’ve worn myself out physically, but I seem to have kept everything else at bay so far and most importantly, I enjoyed myself.
I read somewhere that lemon balm is very good at lifting mood, so I bought some seeds that I’m going to try and plant today and keep in our snug. Apparently, just the citrus scent of the leaves can work wonders and you can also make teas to drink too.
I’ve been looking into a few similar natural ‘remedies’ recently, not to try and cure myself or anything, but to assist in the healing process / improve general wellbeing. If anyone has any they’d like to share, I’d be interested in hearing.
Still need to find my get up and go, maybe I need to file a missing report.
