Tapping on the Karate Chop Point (Side of Hand) repeat the following:
Even though I have these exhausting night sweats,
I deeply and completely love and accept myself.
Even though I have these exhausting night sweats,
I deeply and completely love and forgive myself.
Even though I have these exhausting night sweats …
As soon as I get into bed,
And lie down,
Up they start,
These exhausting night sweats.
And it NEVER goes away.
It doesn’t matter if I’m hot or cold,
Inside or out,
If I have the fan full on,
Or if I’m wearing the lightest of bed clothes,
And have the best pure cotton bedding.
It is SO exhausting;
I don’t know what’s worse,
The sweats or the insomnia!
I can’t stay awake in the evening,
I keep nodding off,
How embarrassing when the family are there.
Yet as soon as I get into bed,
Up they start!
Those incredibly hot and wet sweats.
They come on with a vengeance,
Sudden and intense.
I wake up in the night,
Feeling like I’m going to combust.
And I am SOAKED in perspiration,
Soaked to the bone,
My hair drenched,
And the pillows and sheets, too.
I have to change clothes and bedding,
And sleep on towels.
These night sweats prevent me from sleeping.
WHY am I sweating like this?
EVERY single ruddy night!
I get so clammy and wet,
From head to toe.
When does this all freaking end?
Is there nothing I can do to stop it?
Will it ever go away?
I lie in this furnace,
As if my blood is boiling
Tossing and turning.
First I throw off the bedding
Longing for a current of cool air,
For any tiny bit of refreshing coolness.
And then freeze as I cool
And the sweat evaporates.
I feel so bad
Because it affects my husband/partner,
Disturbs their sleep too.
I’ve even had to go
And sleep in the spare room,
With the windows wide open,
Even in the midst of winter!
I feel so out of control,
As my body takes over,
Its thermostat constantly on high.
What have I done to deserve this?
Why does my body do this to me?
Will it ever end?
It’s driving me mad!
And even though I have these exhausting night sweats,
I deeply and completely,
Love, forgive and accept myself.
Now it’s time to move on to the individual tapping points. Tap gently but firmly a few times (about 5-
