@Pagola - You will be alright very soon, just pass the journey with lot confidence. Few tips from my experience:
1. Eat healthy foods (big NO to sugar, Low carb) - Fruits, vegetables, Nuts, berries, supplements (VitD, Omega 3 & Curcumin)
2. Stay positive always; read only good stuff - dont believe everything that you read from Dr Google. Each of our body is different. Pls keep that in mind
3. Do good excercise


@beachsunrise - All is well bro - keep it up. thanks.
