Oh this video is so glorious and i'm so happy to see you blogging again. I can't wait to get mine and mate all day everyday. ;)

Thank you! lol @ "mate all day". Love it.

Thanks, I'm going to have nightmares tonight.

As a young woman, I was diagnosed with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Fibromyalgia right befroe my sophomore year of college. I was beyond exhausted, and in the beginning I needed my friends to help me get around. I couldn't stay up past ten at night, and moving around was so exhausting, I hardly left my room except when necessary. My friends would keep me company, hanging out in my room while I lay on my bed. I needed at the very least 12 hours of sleep each night, and usually required an hour or two nap each afternoon. I was in a lot of pain, too, with my joints and skin hurting significantly. I learned how to manage my illnesses after a year or so, but was still very limited in what I could do. I was introduced to yerba mate two years after my diagnosis and became instantly hooked. I noticed immediately an improvement in my mental alertness and physical energy. I found that when I drank mate regularly throughout the day, I was able to make it through the day without a nap. I was able to move around more without suffering muscle & joint pain or severe headaches. I even started being able to make guest appearances at parties, which I hadn't been able to do in years. Today, I still require more sleep than the average person, but I am, for the most part, completely functional. I don't drink mate everyday, but certainly every week, and I always keep it on hand for when I need extra help making it through the day. I believe my immune system is stronger now, and while I can't be sure that all of this is because of mate, I am sure that it gave me a crucial boost. I am incredibly grateful for discovering this incredible drink and believe completely in its amazing health benefits.
