I take these detox baths with hydrogen peroxide and epsom salts and sweat out toxins. My knees are bad so my dad always cleans the tub out for me so I can take the occasional detox bath. I wish I could take them everyday but it’d not be so good for me. But that feeling after of no pain and calmness is the best. I miss it right now while I lay down with a headache and bad muscle aches. I do have post lyme syndrome but I sometimes get paranoid my muscle pain is attributed to something extra. I have so many health problems it’s miserable. And I’m only 26. I hope I last into my 90s.

I went out with a friend today to dinner which I regret paying for but I owed her a dinner, then we bummed about for a bit and LAUGHED. It really is medicine, but after she left and the night wore on I got depressed again. Tomorrow all the schools are closed but I don’t have any classes. Just tutoring in the afternoon. Hopefully I get paid to make up the money I spent on recreation this week. I can’t spend anymore. Need to save.

I took the most luxurious shower tonight. The lady I’m dog sitting for has only the finest grooming products from bar soap and shampoo to body polish and ph balancing toner. I put some music on and danced a little too. I wish there was reason to take another shower NOW so I could relax.

Apparently I’m the spitting image of Lena Dunham so I started watching Girls and I’m enjoying it.

I wish this depression would eff off. I’m tired of it.

  1. I definitely love baths as well! I use the bubble/bath bombs from lush and just sit in the tub reading or just thinking about things. It really is relaxing.

    I agree that laughter is the best medicine. Whenever I’m with my friends, I’m just so cheerful and carefree. I love it. But like you, once I go back home the depression sets in. It actually just happened to me a few days ago.

    I hope you kick that depression away soon.

  2. I’ve never heard of a detox bath… though never thought to research it either. How does that work? I know about Epsom salts, not so much about hydrogen peroxide. How much do you use? I have fibromyalgia so ache constantly all over, and the only thing that has worked for me is Percocet. I’ve tried so many things, and actually had trigger point injections last week which seem to have only made things worse. Ugh. Even Morphine fails to touch the pain. Like you, I was a mere 27-years-old when this all began, and my list of ailments is intimidating for my age.

    Tell me more, tell me more! Now I’m excited to take a bath!


    • I explained the whole thing in a post for you! Check it out šŸ™‚ I’ve got the ‘recipe’ listed. I hope you take one and it helps. They’re addicting because of the results but after a day or so the good feelings run back to old ones and you need another bath. I’d go only 3-4 a week MAX though because you pull a lot of stuff out of your system and you don’t wanna overdo it.

      All my love


  3. Hate to burst your bubble, but I did some research before I forked over $85 bucks and the detox baths where you soak your feet and the supposed “toxins” flow out are “fakeo”. The brown/rust looking liquid isn’t from your body, it’s actually from the machine.
