Day – 19 Passing a kidney stone

Have been feeling physically exhausted the last few days, aching and generally uncomfortable. Decided to have a break for 48 hours and see how I feel.

Have been experiencing sporadic kidney pain for he last 7 months. One morning I woke in agony and had to phone an ambulance. At the hospital they gave me pain killers but an x-ray didn’t reveal anything. A shaman friend told me it was kidney irritation and to eat lots of fresh pineapple which is an enzyme bomb. Have had reoccurrences of pain on and off for a while now.

Anyway last night severe pain again. Had to take some pain killers to sleep. In morn wasn’t sure whether to go doctors or hospital. Decided to go hospital. They said they were booked out and I should come back tomorrow. Something told me to just go home.

Got home and passed a large kidney stone!

I feel elated! Like a mother must feel after giving birth!

I have carried this stone around for 7 months!

Jokes aside I am just glad to know what the problem was.

Let me tell you passing kidney stones is  painful! An 11 mm kidney stone is no joke.

Back to pranayama tomorrow!
