Well my activities consist of lately having my friend come over, and she watches movies and I rest. Sometimes I watch TV, but I usually never leave my chair with all my comfy pillows and candlelight. I try to relax myself as much as possible, if I don't I get anxiety. At night, though, I feel my best. And thats when I play a 30 min session of video games. Sometimes I color in some coloring pages or listen to an audiobook.
As for school, I am online. I am taking 2 online classes.
My diet consists of a banana in the morning with a Powerade to get proper potassium, as my potassium is low according to my doctor. I have noticed when I get some potassium in, I feel less lethargic. For lunch, i usually have a fruit or a sandwich. Dinner is complicated, sometimes I have some soup or something else depending on what my family is eating, sometimes I don't eat what they are eating. I find that its hard to eat, I usually force stuff into my body.
The pain usually starts in the back of my head and my neck is usually stiff. Sometimes it is unbearable, really unbearable. Plus, the insomnia isn't helpful either. I want rest! 5 hours to me isn't enough.
To help my recovery, I have been trying to not do much. I take potassium supplements and I am soon to be taking Omega 3 supplements. Any other suggestions from anyone? And how can I entertain me and my friend without watching television or doing computer related stuff? I still don't feel like myself, I feel like 70%.
