Insomnia was bad overnight but I somehow managed to get back to sleep after covering myself with a second duvet. My body does this very very strange thing now where it gets cold but doesn't actually tell me so I'm awake but my body is just not quite warm enough. It's dead annoying.
So last night I was still a bit wired from the tudca and my mood was anxious and a bit unpleasant (stupid anxiety about work and anxiety less so about life) essentially getting stuck fixated on something instead of being able to let it go.
I often wonder what remission would look like. Would my body just return to its previous state where anxiety was all held in my chest/stomach and I'd be fad less paranoid in work. A lot of the supps I take increase anxiety.
But not directly. They do this indirectly. I believe it is because they are partly stimulating (for me) and partly because DNA and rna viruses don't like to have their replication state shut down or disturbed and will pump out a variety of cytokines etc if it does. I only find evidence of this for ebv antiviral therapy in studies it's a very understudied area sadly.
As for the tudca I took 25mg today. I'm hoping that will give me the benefits without feeling wired. I also think the taurine is the issue....I've never got on with it and taurine also makes me quite paranoid. I've tried to find other bound forms of udca and not found any yet. Udca is an alternative option for me tho if tudca fails.
