This is perfect! Thank you, that helps!Hi @Chrismcd
Sorry you are still feeling nauseous. My appetite was off, not exactly nauseated just Bleh..but medication was most likely culprit. I had to make sure I had something on my stomach prior to meds or I could become nauseous.
These are still very early days so the energy drain is very prominent, hence the malaise.

I know these first weeks are tough, but all should begin improving soon. I've been where you are and it is not easy.
Keep the faith...all temporary, friend.
