    That is very good b/c caffeine worsens the symptoms a lot. Definitely great decision.
    Keep walking. Just keep walking.

    Yeah, I used to drink three cups a day and I had to stop totally for w/d. Now, I have....wait for it......three tablespoons a day [sic] as a treat with milk and honey in the a.m. Can't tolerate more, but I look forward to this....

    Also had to stop reading or watching the news for a long time. Now, I can tolerate it. But, yeah, I wouldn't do it just before bed.
    Meds free since June 2005.

    "An initiation into shamanic healing means a devaluation of all values, an overturning of the profane world, a peeling away of inveterate handed-down notions of the world, liberation from everything preconceived. For that reason, shamanism is closely connected with suffering. One must suffer the disintegration of one's own system of thought in order to perceive a new world in the higher space."
