Scrambled eggs.

You're probably wondering why I haven't posted in about a month. Or why I never returned your text/facebook message/email/phone call. Well, my brain feels like scrambled eggs and here's why. :{  

Let's see.... One, two, three, four, five, six,....TWELVE. 
I wake up every morning with more on my mind than you'd think to be physically possible. 
I set my alarm for an early hour so I can take my thyroid pill. Then I wait 30 minutes to an hour so I can take each of my three "killing herbs": samento, banderol, & burbur. They have to be taken 15 minutes apart from each other so there goes another 30 minutes. Once the herbs are checked off my list, then I see if I'm feeling well enough for breakfast (which will probably be chicken soup). If I decide to eat, then I take out my bottle of digestive enzymes & pop a handful of those into my mouth & wash them down with a small swig of lemon water. Since I'm eating something, I'll try to take either my probiotics or my multivitamin because they have to be taken with food. Maybe a half hour later or a few hours afterwards (depending on how organized I am that day), I try to choke down a couple ounces of water with L-Glutamine mixed in to heal my stomach lining. At any point during the day (at least three times), I also have to take my cell salts to help with inflammation. LUCKILY, those salts don't have to be taken at any specific time. I'll probably head off to work at this point, hopefully having met my morning requirements so I have less left to worry about when I get home. If not, when I come home, I try to catch up & get on track. If I eat something, I have to take more digestive enzymes. Perhaps I'll take my zinc if I remember. This means more water. And more water. AND MORE DANG WATER!!!! GAHHHH!!!!!!!!!!! If I forgot to take my probiotics earlier, I'll take them with dinner. Once I eat dinner, I take a look at the time & make a mental note to take my herbs AGAIN for my second dose in a few hours once the food has partially digested. And as I'm eating or immediately after, I have to pop more digestive enzymes. So now I have to wait for the food to digest & for the supplements to do their "thing" so the herbs aren't disturbed. Once I take the herbs for the final time of the day (30 minutes wasted), I wait another 30 minutes or so to take my magnesium & curcumin. The herbs have to be separate from the other supplements. I usually take those right before bed. And then, BOOM. It's finally time to shut my brain off. 
I assumed this whole treatment deal would be a walk in the park. I have never been more WRONG in my entire life. If I seem to be on another planet next time we chat, please forgive me as I'm probably trying to map out the next best time to take a supplement. Oh & I'm supposed to be able to fit a 21 year-old's life, a salt bath, & FUN in there too... Hmm.... Still trying to figure out the method to this madness. Pretty please bear with me.
