Month 29 – May

This month was pretty normal. Can’t complain really. The worst of my symptoms have been reduced to my hands and a little bit on my ankles and neck. I’m feeling better every day. I still have to avoid long periods of exposure to the sun though. My skin still burns pretty badly after 15 minutes of direct sunlight then I have to deal with 2 or 3 days of swelling, itching and flaking. I still try to get around 5 to 10 minutes of sunshine a day though, I usually just jump rope in the sun to get the lymph moving and get my daily dose of vitamin d. Getting out in the sun in the morning is good for the circadian rhythm as well and now that my sleep is more or less back to normal I don’t want to disturb that. I just have to make sure that I avoid the peak hot hours otherwise I burn very quickly.

I’ve also been doing cold showers after my bath and at this point I find them very refreshing. They were painful at first but now I can’t get the water cold enough. I haven’t been practicing the Wim Hof Method very much lately, which is crazy; it takes like 20 minutes and it’s just breathing! How can I not find time to breathe!
