Hey guys 🙂

As you can tell by the title I’ve been ill! I’ve recovered now, and it was a surpirisngly short peroid of illnes – about 4 or 5 hours long. It was really odd! Basically, I was in college minding my own business, getting on with some work (how unfortunate) when all of a sudden I’m sitting with my head on the desk begging for the lesson to end soon. It started with a horrid headache, and the best way I can describe it is that air was pumped into my head and my brain didn’t fit in it anymore! Then eventually I started to feel like I was going to be sick, and this lasted a while. This is where it gets really annoying! I took food with me to college but it was only a snack, because I had a half day so I thought I’d have lunch when I got home, so I just had a small tub of a mixture of nuts – all of which I ate before my head got really bad, and I had very little money because I didn’t think I’d need it. So anyway, I got on the bus and felt horrid all the way to the next bus stop, then I had to get off and wait for another bus (I have to take 3/4 buses to & from college – sucks!) and I felt DREADFUL. I was literally swaying and felt like I would up-chuck at any moment, but my stomach was so empty and I needed something to eat. I went to the only shop nearby and found that the only thing I had enough money for was one of my Paleo enemies; chocolate. In that moment I felt so awful that I didn’t care how it would effect me; I just needed something in my stomach. Also, by this point part of my tongue had gone numb, which has never happened to me before!

So in the end, I ate some chocolate. And I’m so glad I did because when I got onto the next bus the feel and even the sound of the bus made me feel sick, along with the smell of it; it wasn’t a particularly bad smell but I felt as if my sense of smell was magnified so pretty much everything smelled bad! But when I started eating the chocolate my body seemed to put all it’s focus on the tasty goodness rather than my illness, and after a while of lying down and drinking water when I got home I felt so much better. I did pay for it the next day (yesterday); my skin was quite red on my face, but after a day of veggies, water and fruit my skin has got so much better! It seems to recover quite quickly now that I’m on this diet, so it’s all good!

Bye guys 🙂



Hey, my name is Brooke. Basically, I have this blog so I can talk about eczema. I have suffered with eczema all my life, and when I turned 13 it flared up for no apparent reason, and has remained basically the same. So on here I will hopefully be blogging everyday explaining new things I am using to try and fight eczema, and hopefully I will overcome it. Happy blogging!
