Rachel--24

Omg...i Might Be On To Something

Recommended Posts

Hi, Tom--Thanks for that link; it's very helpful! I always try to find a place with at least a fridge and microwave, though I just bought a hot plate that I'm going to take with me when I go to the beach in a few weeks, as they only have a fridge where I'm staying. Ah, the joys of traveling with celiac!

Oops del part - but I bet some whitecoats somewhere *are* looking at tick/skeeter immune sysytems!!!

I love the flute! I always wanted to play, but did not get to. Just renting one, like a violin, is normally incredibly expensive. I compose music, so it would definitely be great to test the sound out! I do have a keyboard, but the actual flute is really better if you can access one.

In a full-size bigband jazz band, the reeds are expected to double on another instr.

So I started flute and kept getting dizzy!!

Too strange at first when used to the resistance of a reed. :)

I never did get to where I felt I had consistent tone throughout the whole range. On a given day, either the highs or lows weren't what I wanted or would just be flat or sharp. <grimacing just hearing it in my head>

I bet a flute from a pawnshop could be a good bargain.

Didn't Dollface get her new knife at one?

Well, some of us WANT to and do, but we just don't understand it all. :P

In all but 6-8wks of last 5yrs+ I would've scrolled by as fast as when I see "spotting" as part of a post!! :lol:

The topic just required a certain precision in the wording. I find articles like that appalling. Masquerading as science is my personal 'blasphemy' and I feel it does society a grave disservice.

Sleepy?! :lol: Here I am thinking it's like a war zone most of the time... :P

Yeah, commuting = heinosity squared! My commute is about 30 minutes--with no traffic!!!

Well I didn't mean sleepy in the working world daytime. Just apres-sunset. :)

Last job I could go home for lunch in 10min, but after-work commute at normal times was often an hour!!!!! Grrrrr

I'd stay working 'til 7 just so the opened carpool lanes made it a little quicker.

I'd see people in the stop&go (or stop&roll&stop&stop&roll&stop) reading paperbacks!!!!!

Aaaaaaaaaaaarghh!!!!!!!!!!!!

I definitely do. The pain is perhaps down to a 9. I have a bit more range of motion, but the pain is still there when trying to lift my arm more than an inch in any direction.

I'm glad you're doing better today. Still sounds quite painful though.

Now I'm thinking outside the box........is it possible this is the area you got bit and that's why this area hurts so bad?

Ok- now thanks to this thread I fear leftovers, mercury, mold, nut butters, hair dye, my beloved diet Coke (yes- I have cut down considerably), ticks, and nameless other scary organisms. On the other hand I do not fear sticking cofee up my scatalogical zone. Is something wrong with this picture? :lol: :lol:

:lol::lol:

<_< This is would be better than giving it up altogether and it does make sense to use a rotation diet, it is just that I have so few foods to rotate. :(

That's why I suggested it as a possible thing once in awhile. The way my doctor puts it is that it is best to avoid foods that cause problems but if the reaction is something you don't mind dealing with then you can eat it. Sometimes you'll be ok with eating a certain food item at certain intervals. I know Patti has done this with some things.

Tom......fyi, I think gluten and soy are bad, bad, bad and should be avoided anyway. :P Not everyone agrees with me and that's fine.

Sometime ago I read a Rolling Stone article on Vaccinations by Robert Kennedy, did you see it? He talks about a secret meeting between the big players in the vaccination game and various other health officials and government types that happened around 2000.

They met to discuss the relationship between autism and thimersol and the growing evidence of that relationship. Just after that a number of studies were funded that showed there was NO relationship and that meant no problem for the drug companies.

If you go looking you can find these studies but if you keep looking you will find that these studies have been disproved.

Yep, I read that. It was in an article that Blaylock had written about the deception.

Recently though I have heard that there is a legal case that is going to proceed regarding vaccinations - thimersol and autism.

Read that too. I think NVIC must have put out a newsletter.

:ph34r: And yes Rachel, be careful as it sounds like she may not have gone through as many changes as you have and as you say because you look fine she still may not get it.

Yes, mother hen (mama spice) is concerned too. Just proceed with caution Rachel. I hope everything went ok last night.

:ph34r: Ticks, well, I think it's a reasonable fear.

:o:ph34r: I don't blame you.

Re: Rinne's almonds

Contrarian Spice told me to write he's glad he didn't decide to just have soy occasionally. :P

<tom here again - did anyone see that? He stuck out hs tongue at me!!!!!>

:lol: See my explanation above. :)

Good morning everyone. :)

I had a good time last night....glad I decided to go. It wasnt just any b-day part...it was the 40th....I would've been sad if I'd missed it.

The only thing that made me sad was the fact that I'm sick. Going to these types of functions its hard to *forget* how restricted I am right now. I did shed some tears in bed last night...thinking about all that.. :(

PLUS....my ex said that I still look (the most dreaded word ever) SKINNY. :(

It goes back to what I said a few weeks ago...the people who *know* me...can tell. Its only people who see me everyday or who have only met me in the past few years that think I'm at a healthy weight.

Its a really sad thing....my ex doesnt ask many questions about all this....I think would rather not know. Everyone else can talk to me about it...ask questions, etc.

I know my ex-best friend (when we talk) will want to know everything thats happened but my ex cant seem to talk about it w/ me and its been more than 4 years now. I used to think it was lack of concern....but now I think maybe its just too hard.

I think my ex just wants it all to "go away" and for me to just be healthy again.

Well...I would love nothing more....and God knows I'm trying real hard.

I think the stress from all of this had alot to do with us breaking up.

So yeah...today I'm sad....like I had predicted.

On Friday my Dr. said I havent made the biggest step yet. With the right detox treatment there comes a point when the pathways are clear....all the exit doors are open. From that point treatment moves alot quicker...there is noticeable improvement and more agressive treatments can be added into the program.

I'm not there yet. He feels I've made some progress since I've last seen him (thanx to Amy and Anna) but I'm still at the bottom...trying to work my way up.

Once I get half-way the rest is much easier...but I'm still stuck in the hardest part. :(

[Edited to add] yay Rachel posts to break up my assumed consecutive separate posts!! (Haven't actually checked to see how many in a row are lil ole me)

Sorry about all the separate posts, it SO wouldn't happen from a pc. But I get no windowed browsing, tabbed browsing or mouse to easily highlight txt to copy.

Poor me.

(Hehe maybe I should just get a cheap wifi card and see if I can pirate a lil bandwidth? New neighbor has monster tv so prob wifi)

Yeah, I think I ended up taking 12 tylenold tablets yesterday...I know the directions say 2 every 4-6 hours...I took 2 every 4 hours, but forgot to look at the "don't take more than __ in 24 hours" part. I'll take less today...I hate taking stuff anyway, but there was absolutely no way I could have made it through yesterday without help. :P I think today will be better...I have to wait until at least 6:30 before I can take anything anyway...it's only 5:00 here now. I took my IntraMax this morning and can't take anything for 2 hours afterwards.

Having been prescribed 800mg ibuprofen 4x/day after one of several back injuries, I mistakenly thought "it can't be *that* bad for me" to take that qty when the celiac bone-pain, migraines etc started up.

For literally yrs I was taking 16 advil/day and still would clock-watch to when I could take the next 4. How ridiculous is THAT in hindsight!! It did make it more manageable tho. Was even still working at the time.

I think you may have more of our problems than you think. :P

<BANG!>

That was the sound of a nail being hit -right-on-the-head. :)

And yes, Donna, I do realize it's possible. It's why I didn't just mosey on out past the gooseline, as it were, when I felt great in 1st week of June.

I really learned my lesson in '05. Can't stop seeing Cliff Robertson's desperate haunting look in "Charly" http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0062794/

(Have realized how much my version of the "algernon effect" is dependent upon having seen the movie)

I am NOT going 'back in the hole'!!

So heres some of the details from Fridays Dr. appt.

I told him I purchased a sauna (I left the SpiceShip part out ;) )....he thought it was great but does not want me going crazy with it. :ph34r:

Amy had said I could use the sauna daily but he said he would prefer I use the sauna every other day so as to allow time for my body to catch-up on the "off" days. If not I'll overwhelm my system and cause redistribution.

I think since he's known me almost a year now he's more aware of how well I'm excreting (or should I say NOT excreting) and how slow I need to go with these types of things which mobilize toxins. Anna's thinking is the same and shes seen me more than anyone else this past year.

Amy's only seen me twice but of course if she says I can do the sauna daily....I'm all over it....its just my nature to want to rachel things. :rolleyes:

So yeah...I think I'm still trying to recover from the last episode in the spiceship....trying to force the sweat out (such a bad idea) and now I havent used it since. :(

ALSO...besides the moldening....I had done a coffee e right before getting into the spiceship...I was trying to cram everything in as it was getting late and close to bedtime.

The coffee e was unsuccessful....its happened one other time where I felt there had to be some type of blockage. I think this time...even though I gave adequate time for expelling the stuff...it just wasnt loosening up. I think I knew it wasnt gonna be good and was already starting to feel the symptoms of mobilized toxins.

I tried a warm water e and still wasnt successful. When toxins are mobilized and not excreted I tend to puff up....I get fluid retention and imflammation....my skin will feel thicker. So yeah...this is why there was no sweating and it was really dumb of me to try and force it...and to put all this stress on my body in one night. :(

It makes sense that I should not do the sauna on consequetive days...so I've learned from my mistake (does it really ever end? :huh: ) and will not be racheling my spiceship anymore. ;)

Tom- OMG...with all your bait and switch and begging the question- you could have TAUGHT the doctoral class I took called Critical Inquiry :ph34r: (but ha ha, I got an A!)

Holy Cr . . . . . .errrrr Pious Poop!!! Thx hehe. I bet I'd like that class, but also they prob wouldn't let me in w/ 0 prereq's.

I did take a quick Philosophy of Logic class but it seemed like 80-90% was so obvious.

Did u finish your doctorate Bev? (Is it Dr. Bev "to me"?)

Am I overly flattered that someone w/ that background could say such a thing?

(Is that borderline or totally "begging the question"?)

Seriously, Bev that means a lot to me. I was just riffing.

Is something wrong with this picture? :lol: :lol:

Oh yeah....to add to everyones difficulties understanding Tom's posts during Herxes, glutenings, moldenings, reg. brainfog, etc. Last week my mom said she cant read Tom's posts because they seem like riddles to her. :lol:

She asked me if I had problems reading them?? :unsure:

I told her I do...but I had thought it was just me and all the toxins circulating through my brain. :huh:

So yeah....my mom might fit into the reg. brainfog category but otherwise she's healthy. :)

At least I know I'm not the only struggling to comprehend. :P

More Dr. appt. info....

Whey protein and NAC:

He said they do the same thing in the body...they both make glutathione....they both support detoxification. I asked if I shouldnt be taking both?? He said its great I'm able to take both and theres no such thing as too much glutathione.

However, a person as sensitive as me can easily become sensitive to anything I'm taking on a daily basis. Since I'm doing fine with both he'd rather that I alternate days for now...one day on NAC and the next on the whey protein. He doesnt want me to start reacting to the stuff so a one day break is better than nothing.

No arguements from me....the supplements will last alot longer this way. He said right now I'm pretty much taking the max dosage for both of these but I can take as much as I'm able to and he's fine with that.

I said "If I've been taking both of these and at the max. amounts...could I be setting myself up for setbacks??" :unsure:

He said no....I wont get setbacks. :huh:

I'm so used to hearing "baby steps" with everything I have to admit I was knid of surprised. :unsure:

I said "Well then how is this different from the sauna....where I have to allow my body time to catch up...and if I do too much I'll get sick??"

He said the sauna is an "active" detoxifier....its actively pulling toxins from tissue.....whereas NAC and whey protein support detoxification....they build glutathione in the body.

Whatever is mobilized during a sauna session needs to be able to be excreted. This is not so much an issue with supplements that are used to support detoxification.

For me...right now...in this beginning stage...its much more important for me to be supporting detoxification and getting those exit doors to stay wide open.

He said he was glad I'm not taking the NDF anymore as clearly there is alot more attention needed on the pathway issues. I told him Amy said chelation is not at all what my body needs right now and that the pathways need alot of support. He agreed and said chelation is a long way away. I have alot of progress to make first.

Well, so far no Tylenol today. Pain is still there but only if I move my arm at the shoulder joint...moving my lower arm at the elbow is fine and causes no pain...yesterday ANY movement of my arm caused pain in the shoulder joint and that was with all the tylenol...so yeah, I guess I'm better today...still can't get dressed well or shampoo hair and stuff that needs to have my arm raised. I'm thinking by tomorrow all will be well.

"There is a crack in everything

That's how the light gets in. "

...

Sorry all Me and microwave are not going to be seperated

I love those lyrics! Exactly righ! oh, and ditto on the microwave. I've cut down a lot, but really as long as I work there will be a microwave in my future. :P

Ok- now thanks to this thread I fear leftovers, mercury, mold, nut butters, hair dye, my beloved diet Coke (yes- I have cut down considerably), ticks, and nameless other scary organisms. On the other hand I do not fear sticking cofee up my scatalogical zone. Is something wrong with this picture?

:lol: :lol:

I also discovered that the coffee still coats the inside a bit. So every few times I rub the sides of the bag together really good, and work my way down the tube rubbing it hard between my fingers. I had discovered that after a while there was a build up of residue inside and it would come out in little chunks when rinsing the bag.

If I do the rubbing it seems to stay clean. Could be the water?? Or maybe I didn't rinse well enough a few times?

It's probably the oil from the coffee...coffee beans have oil and some of the residual oil may coat the bag. At least that's my best guess.

And cute picture.

Thanks...this was a slightly different one than I posted before...later today I may see if there are any others I didn't post in our last childhood picture thing.

Hmm, yeah, some guy found it ... he talks just like you but is a little nuts ... it was fun ... but glad you're back!

:lol:

Oh Rachel, that's very interesting about rotating the supplements! I'm going to ask about that too when I see him on Tuesday. I started taking ALA yesterday...that was one of the ones he wanted me to start during this last 6 weeks. I have now started all but one of the ones he wanted and the EFA which I can't seem to tolerate.

And part 2

I'm glad you're doing better today. Still sounds quite painful though.

Now I'm thinking outside the box........is it possible this is the area you got bit and that's why this area hurts so bad?

Well anything is possible, but in that location I would think that I would have seen something. On the other hand, I have been known to be oblivious at times and probably just would have relocated any stupid varmit that bit me before I even looked at it.

And then some of those people get into accidents and tie up traffic even longer.

Yes, like last Friday...traffic was backed up for miles at 2:30! There were helicopters with water buckets flying over the freeway...turns out that a car had burned up...there was nothing left but a shell by the time I passed it.

Its a really sad thing....my ex doesnt ask many questions about all this....I think would rather not know. Everyone else can talk to me about it...ask questions, etc.

I know my ex-best friend (when we talk) will want to know everything thats happened but my ex cant seem to talk about it w/ me and its been more than 4 years now. I used to think it was lack of concern....but now I think maybe its just too hard.

I think my ex just wants it all to "go away" and for me to just be healthy again.

Some people just can't talk about something like that. I actually think it might have been easier for him to talk about it with you if he DIDN'T care about you.

(Hehe maybe I should just get a cheap wifi card and see if I can pirate a lil bandwidth? New neighbor has monster tv so prob wifi)

He he, one of these days we'll be seeing you with this huge old laptop just so you can keep up with this thread. :P

<BANG!>

That was the sound of a nail being hit -right-on-the-head.

Rachel,

I'm glad all went well with the party overall. You will get to the point when you can be out and about a lot again. Hang in there.

We looked at whey protein last night when we went shopping......didn't get any since we didn't know what brand was good. We decided we'd ask Dr. Elizabeth about it on Thursday.

I have to log what Talitha eats. Pretty scant the last two days as we were real low on food. :( Then what I made this morning caused her problems. She's eaten both before with no problem.....I can't wait until Thursday. :(

We are home all day. :)

Glutathione:

I asked him about the Glutathione IV's......he said he does them all the time. He said he would be able to administer these for me but for whatever reason my body cant tolerate the glutathione yet (according to ART).

I told him Anna's gonna re-check this in 2 months but for now I have to stick with the precursers (the NAC and whey protein).

I asked him whats the difference between the precursers and the Glutathione itself??

He said the IV's of glutathione are much more effective...it goes straight into the bloodstream....its much more powerful. The precursers take alot longer to be effective because they have to "build" the glutathione in the body whereas with the IV's its directly being administered into the blood.

The IV's are glutathione itself...the precursers are amino acids which make glutathione.

I knew this already but just wanted him to clarify. I mostly wanted to know if the IV's work better...and he said they do.

I asked if people can notice an immediate improvement with IV Glutathione?

He said some people can....he has one girl who has chemical sensitivities and the only thing thats been able to help her are the IV's...so she comes in every week for an IV.

I told him that if I got relief like that I'd be going in for IV's everyday if I needed to!

He didnt say anything to that....I dont think as a Dr. he feels like this is the way someone should have to live. It'd be better to resolve the problems and not require the weekly IV's just to live a decent life.

I think the IV's are expensive....I think I read on LymeNet that glutathione is expensive so alot of people try to use the precursers instead.

I think he's optimistic that Amy's and Annas testing will uncover all the problems so that in the end they'll be able to get my body to do what it needs to do to maintain my health on its own.

Anyways...he said for whatever reason I'm not tolerating gutathione itself right now but once I can...we'll definately be trying the IV's.

I again asked if a person can get sick from a glutathione IV....would there be any possibilities of setbacks??

He said with things like B-12 and glutathione...when theres a reaction...its generally because the person is having more of an "allergic" response. Hopefully I wont run into those types of problems because of the ART and energetic testing letting us know ahead of time.

Now I'm thinking outside the box........is it possible this is the area you got bit and that's why this area hurts so bad?

I'm a huge fan of "thinking outside the box"!!

But I'm also quick to dispute those doing so w/out 1st peering *into* the box for a good long gander. (Don't u dare take that personally :lol: - I think Hans of that article didn't take enough physics!!!)

The way my doctor puts it is that it is best to avoid foods that cause problems but if the reaction is something you don't mind dealing with then you can eat it.

I could see my best, most helpful docs saying such things too. But the actual "reaction" to soy for me was minor (and very deal-able; just another day), and I think it's most likely I'd be enveloped in The Haze still w/ occasional. :( :( :(

I wasn't having soy every day b4 quitting it.

My food diary is easily detailed enough to check frequency. Not in any hurry to unless requested tho.

I do truly wonder if there's some tricky aspect, which I may never understand, to the removal of the Final intolerable.

I think there are analogous anecdotes at least, in other complicated bio-systems, and I really wish I could think of one right now. :)

Yep, I read that. It was in an article that Blaylock had written about the deception.

Planned to go back to Rinne's post and incl comment on this there, but since I can't resist hitting the "box" part now . . . wth

Haven't seen it or even heard of this specifically, but don't doubt it in the least. I'm sure these things happen. :(

And then some of those people get into accidents and tie up traffic even longer. :huh:

Hehe the ones I used to see were actually safe. The situation was one where every ~20-30sec you could crawl a car-length for ~5sec, and they'd move the book away during that time. I was really keeping a close eye on them I SWEAR!!!

But I only studied the actions of a couple.

1st one was in a huge line to GET to the road that went to the ramp to 237. So triple line-up wait b4 even on the fwy.

And that was avoiding getting on at 1st St., taking a sneaky side road that doesn't sound faster but easily was.

If you do a search on Dr. Russell Blaylock vaccinations you should come up with some articles.

Otherwise if you are interested pm me your email and I'll send them to you.

Methyl B-12:

These are the shots I'll be taking. I told him Dr. Amy wants me to start giving them to myself everyday.

He was asking me if I had all the equipment, how many cc's, etc.

I have no clue. :huh:

I'm like "Equipment??" :unsure:

He said yeah....syringes, blah, blah, blah.

I told him I havent gotten the B12 yet...pharmacy just called me Friday as I was leaving for my appt. Didnt have time to set everything up....will have to call them back Mon. I have no clue how these shots work. Only that Amy and Scott said its really easy. :unsure:

He said when I do get the B12....just come back and the nurses can show me exactly how to administer the shots. :)

I've since remembered that Dr. Amy gave me the site address where there are videos showing how to administer the shots. Its Methyl B-12 shots.....so the videos are all involving kids with Autism. The parents are showing how they give their kids the shots...there are also videos showing kids who've recovered or are close to recovery.

If anyones interested...here is the sites homepage...then just go to "videos".

http://www.drneubrander.com/page1.html

So I guess I'll get the shots sometime next week or early the following week.

Dr. S. said he thinks the shots are a good idea....basically he agrees with the way Amy is going about treatment for me. I know that when he doesnt agree with something he states his opinion so I'm glad everyones on the same page. :)

He specifically asked if it was Methyl B-12?? He said if its not than forget it...it needs to be methyl B-12.

I wasnt too sure except that Amys nurse had said "M-B12" in her phone messages. :huh: I had to get out my paperwork from Amy...and yeah...she had written "Methyl B-12". :)

Hopefully the combination of M B-12, glutathione precursers, etc will eventually push me over to the other side. Eventually it has to happen where something gets me over the hump.

Yeah...there is definately deception here.

I remember hearing (from someone who's involved in the autism treatments) that the govt. wanted the vaccine makers to stockpile the small pox vaccs. The vaccine makers said...nope...cant do it if there are restrictions on the use of thimersol.

The govt. wanted the small pox vaccs stockpiled....in case of terrorist attack. They made a deal...the vaccine makers could use thimersol in vaccs and not be held liable in any possible lawsuits.

A bunch of lawsuits from the parents of Autistic kids got thrown out as a result of this "deal". :angry:

Thanks Donna. :)

It did take awhile to sort through everything and get to the point where we're actually knowing how to proceed with things. This whole process has taken some time but its only been 10 months since I first stepped into Dr. S.'s office.

Considering I went more than 3 years with nothing to show for it...I think we've come a long way in 10 months. :)

I'd rather take the time to get everything right than to just randomly try different things that my body may very well not tolerate right now. I'm impatient for sure....but I know this is the right way to go about things if I want to get better.

Some people just can't talk about something like that. I actually think it might have been easier for him to talk about it with you if he DIDN'T care about you.

Thats what I would like to think but over these years I go back and forth in my mind with that. It really hurts when I think that my ex just doesnt care at all...but then *knowing* what I know about this person it seems unlikely someone could just turn off their feelings in that way.

You never know though....I'm someone who *needs* communication so when someone I care about holds back its hard for me to not torture myself with questions. I dont like to guess as to what someone might be thinking or feeling...I'd rather things just be straight-forward.

Thats a big part of the reason for my New Years resolution...the whole thing has been tortuous at times. We've spent a good amount of time together since our break-up but still its all just really avoiding the whole topic of whats going on in my life w/ regards to all this. If the subject comes up (from me) there is usually just complete silence...not much else.

I do know that I've been thankful many times that this happened to me and not to anyone that I love.

I think I'm strong and I can deal with this (not that I knew this about myself ahead of time)....I would be alot less strong if it were happening to someone else in my life and I didnt have as much control over the situation. I dont know how or if I could deal with it....it would hurt me alot.

So yeah...I dont know if its something similar with my ex or if theres just not a whole lot of concern there. Its hard to know...I'm usually pretty good at reading people...but not so much this time. Also...its probably too close to my heart to look at it very clearly. Everything's fuzzy to me. :(

More tidbits from my appt. :)

Exercise:

I kind of like posting in sections like this....its probably easier for you guys to read it as well.

He kept asking me about exercise, am I doing any, what do I like to do, etc

I told him I'm not really doing anything right now...I like to play softball though. He said he would like it if I can do something that requires me to jump up anf down. I said "Like on a trampoline?" He said..."Yes....jumping on a trampoline would be perfect!".

Yeah...I've heard about this and something else called "rebounding" (?)...supposed to be good for lymphatics, drainage, etc.

I asked him if just plain jumping up and down in my house would be good? :P

He said yeah...that would be great....or jogging would be equally good.

I asked him if massages would also be good for me....he said "Yeah...massages are excellent too."

He said all of these thing are good and theres alot of different things I could do...massages are great but most of these thing cost money....so I cannot do everything. He said jumping up and down is just fine.

So yeah...I jumped up and down about 100 x yesterday. :P

He didnt say anything about "baby steps" with the jumping. :lol:

Oh and for the person who felt I needed to "wake-up"...that my Dr.'s are scamming me, not really interested in getting me well...just in taking my $$.

Well....I'm not really *seeing* that. :unsure:

Clearly my current Dr.'s have genuine concern for my health and have only been looking out for my best interest.

My Dr. said I dont really need to continue seeing him as often until I've made more progress so that he can contribute more to my treatment. Most things he can offer me are restricted from my protocol right now. Of course he *could* have me come in and see him if his concern were to make money...but no...his concern is for my health and what he can do to give me my life back.

I think this is where a Dr's priorities should always be. Unfortunately its not always the case....but I do take it personal when someone who's never met this man can go about "bashing" him in that way.

Diet:

This one is really short. :)

He asked about ICE CREAM. :o

I told him I'm still not eating the ice cream. :)

He was really happy....said he thought that was never gonna end. :lol:

I told him I'm eating mostly protein right now and only a few vegetables. He said this is actually a good diet for me right now. I should be staying away from the grains, the dairy, the sugar, the molds. I told him I'm eating a ton of eggs...he said eggs are good and they're containing the sulfur which will be helpful too.

He said if I could eat garlic, onions, broccoli...the other cruciferous veggies....those would all be good too.

There was more stuff we talked about regarding the yeast and molds....will post more later. :)
