I received an email a few days ago from my dear friend, Naheed Simjee, asking if I’d be interested in getting involved with this fast. I realized I didn’t really know much about Darfur, so I decided to take this opportunity to educate myself and understand as much as I could.
I hope that my involvement in this fast helps build awareness and encourages other people to get involved.
Today is the first day of my fast and having skipped just breakfast so far, Im feeling fine. I’m on my way to a lunch meeting – now minus the lunch.
I worked through the day and ran errands, trying to keep myself busy and my mind off food. I started to feel light headed and tired around 4pm so I took a nap. By evening, I started to get a headache and noticed my mood become very irritated. The first day of hunger seems to be effecting my head more than my stomach.
It’s late. I’ve started and stopped this entry 3 times now. I can’t think clearly so I’ll say goodnight.1s1
