You and everyone else in this world need to start living a Ketogenic lifestyle. When you are in a ketogenic state you are burning on ketones instead of straight glucose.

I am also an earth dragon and have been experiencing similar bad luck and betrayal. It’s kind of scary how accurate these predictions are because I am currently in optometry school so being a science guy I guess naturally I don’t believe in superstitious stuff but maybe there’s something to this I obviously don’t understand. Anyways good luck to you and hang in there! I’m an optimist by nature so roll with the punches and learn how to grow from these experiences. I believe things will get better.
