I started meditating again. (Seriously, I don't know why the heck I ever stop...)
But this time, just 10 minutes of silence and stillness once a day., no chanting yet. Thoughts come and go and the itch comes and sometimes goes, but I stay on the pillow and with my breath the whole time. It's annoying and hard and to be honest I am not doing it to become a better "meditator" but I am doing it to be better at life.
When I went running earlier and the skin started to burn and itch, I was able to witness it first before my instinct immediately forced me to scratch. Instead I started a cooling breath work and began to walk until the sensation subsided. Which it did :)
I know the idea of sitting still in meditation sounds like torture to anyone going through this but what else are you going to do with your time? Sad to say but I know most of you (just like I was) are probably sitting at home hibernating away from the world and binging on Netflix and TSW blogs. Give yourself 10 minutes of working on yourself; you won't regret it.
Aside from that I have noticed improvements again once I started taking more probiotics and water. Which I know I have said numerous times in my blog! I also wrap my arms with stretchy cotton ace bandages right when I get home and it prevents a lot of swelling and itching.
I wish you the best warriors and I will post pictures soon; no significant improvement just yet that's worth posting.
