I haven’t written about my finger (the one that I injured when I got run into a barn by a bull; this injury prompted my initial consultation with an amazing homeopathy; which consultation has changed my life) in quite a while. That finger, for the most part, is fine, but I have found that for some reason I’m quite prone to finger injuries and when my fingers are injured, I suffer more than what I think I should given the severity of the injury. A month or so ago, Gel ran into the little finger on my left hand which bothered me for quite a while. Then I hit the top of my hand with a sledge hammer which is still bothering me. I feel some pain in my hands when I milk and if I type for any length of time.
It’s sort of funny how a finger injury prompted the homeopathic consultation and led to the remedies that I’ve done so well on (I’m back on that original remedy now) and how for such a long time I wanted a goat to milk and now that I am milking, it draws attention to pain in my hands and fingers. Does it mean that there’s a weakness in my hands? Maybe a weakness that may turn into something more chronic if I wasn’t using homeopathy? Maybe that I’ve wanted a milking goat for so long was some sort of unconscious desire to correct what might be an underlying chronic condition? Milking will strengthen my hands and the stronger a body part is, the less likely it is to fail with age.
I see the commercials on television advertising various pain and arthritis medicines. The potential side effects of these drugs make me cringe. Who, in their right mind, would even consider taking these drugs knowing the side effects? I surely wouldn’t.
Another part of me that I’ve seen great changes in has been my skin. For some reason, it has become extremely fragile and is healing slow. I had some bug bites on my back and arms that are at least a month old and are refusing to heal and still itch like crazy. I don’t worry much about what’s on my skin because if you look at things from a homeopathic perspective, the skin is the least vital organ. I am happy to keep symptoms (and the fragility and slowness to heal are symptoms) there. If I were to go to a conventional doctor, I’m sure he or she would put me on a steroid. Maybe I’ll go and soak in a bathtub of Epsom salts to see if that will heal my back.
A few days ago I wrote my homeopath asking if I should redose on the remedy I took last week. I told her my anger was escalating. She told me she didn’t think that I should, that anger was an improvement over depression (which was what I was feeling before dosing originally). I didn’t redose and I’m glad I didn’t. While I still have some anger issues, they are getting less extreme and less frequent and I am no longer depressed. I’m sleeping quite well too.
All in all, I think I’m doing quite well. I am enjoying the challenge of spending and making do with less.
