    Hi Melissa,


    Sorry you had to go through so many years of suffering.  You now have hope, because you know what your problem has been all of these years.  You also know what to do about it!


    It is difficult to learn everything needed, but you just start.  You will get better and better at it.  Any mistakes will help you stay motivated.


    It is rare when anyone comments on blog, so you may want to post in coping, or in the place to introduce yourself.


    There are special threads for new people to help learn.  Someone will post them for you, I think.


    Do you like to cook?  The easiest way for me to get safe food is cook.  I have been cooking food from scratch for years anyway.  Even if you haven't been, I will have you know that my 82 year-old-dad recently learned how to cook.  It can be done.


    I read that wrong up there and thought you were 120 years old!  You may be putting on weight that is not fat, or maybe you could use some more lbs.  You would be very short, I think to look healthy at that weight.  At any rate I would concentrate on being healthy and not the scale.  You also might check with a physician.  My adrenal glands were not working right and that makes the water be retained.  It might be something besides fat.  Give some time for your body to adjust. 


    I wish I could visit.  Here are some flowers.  *** Get well.
