Dear Wim,
I agree. When the pain stops and it does eventually stop,(when you're dead
it certainly stops!) it's the mind going on about it that causes the
suffering "it shouldn't have been that way".
What we need to do is train our minds. Easier said than done I know.
P.S. Thanks for the great advice! Funnily enough something inside has been
saying "de-tox de-tox" for the past couple of weeks now.
Funnylier enough the pain has now gone!
I will still try your supplement and other suggestions though. Might even
stuff some fish down my throat. (I'm vegetarian)
Might even give up ciggies. (sigh)
