I just wanted to let you know that you are an amazing, advanced soul who writes with beauty, honesty and plain truth. 

Your words are echoed around the universe and stand with you to support the removal of the evils of abuse from our lives and from that of out future generations xxx

Sending unconditional love from my heart to yours, blessings to you and your family x

Since I last went to my doctor a few weeks ago and today – my blood pressure difference between sitting and standing has worsened. So that’s not good. Doctor advised I halve the medication and get my BP checked again.

She also said there is no medication for orthostatic hypotension.

I know from research adrenal fatigue and issues can cause this, so I will ask if that can be checked too. And it makes perfect sense to me, that 46 years of toxic stress, major anxiety etc….. would result in adrenal fatigue and related issues. Continue reading
