November was my best month

I just calculated my average daily health rating for the month of November and, surprisingly, it was my best month yet.  Before calculating, I guessed that November was not as good as October, especially given that I recorded one of my lowest one-day ratings of all time on the day I got the stomach flu. But I bounced back from the stomach flu quickly and November beat October by over 1.3 percentage points on my personal scale.  To me, this is more proof that the combination of treatments I've been on since late September is working.  Here's a link to my most recent post listing average monthly health ratings, which has now been updated (click here.)

Again, I realized that in the big scheme of things, two months of improvement may not mean much.  Maybe it's just temporary, but it sure is nice to know it's possible.


  1. That is great!!

    FYI: Here's an article i found on a website you directed me melatonin and Th1.


  2. the link won't paste in is website...serch melatonin

    1. Resting, thank you for that. That is very, very interesting. Just the abstract alone: "This paper shows that melatonin is able to activate human Th1 lymphocytes...Th2 cells appear not to be affected by melatonin" is promising. I look forward to reading the whole thing later.

      Hope you are doing well. Take care!
