Omg...i Might Be On To Something

Recommended Posts

I'm afraid I've fallen off the wagon biiig time :(:angry:

It's been a bad w/e for various reasons and when DH came in this afternoon having been out to buy me just eggs but having bought gluten-free toffee puddings, that was the end of my tether...I ate a toffee pudding, started getting gassy, ate some doritos then a gluten-free curry :o All gluten-free but very definitely not on the anti-candida diet. Well, lets just say my stomach has been exploding and its not pleasant around here :ph34r:

I think part of me still can't accept this whole candida thing, but this seems to be more evidence that I need to clean up my diet at the very least. I want to do it know, coz food isn't worth feeling so rubbish over, but it's the whole emotional thing I can't cope with. I hate food dictating my life like this. I hate being so emotionally dependent on it. But I seem so incompetent to do anything about it. AAAGh!!

Sorry. I really need to vent/ cry/ go to sleep for a 100 years and wake up with a brand new body, preferably somewhere hot....

Hello everybody,

Well, I went to the naturopath and she was USELESS! She was so confused as what to do with me. I also mentioned Candida and she didn't seem to know what that was! AHHHHH! I just feel like crying. THis is so annoying. There are so many people who have no freakin clue what they are doing. She basically told me she had to think about my case and have me comeback. But because of my 67 degree spinal curve, she believes that a lot mf my problems are coming from that since all the digestive nerves in Chinese medicine come from your spinal cord. But since she can't fix the curve, she doesn't know what to do! I feel like I am back at square one!!!!!! (Sorry for all the exclamation points...I'm just pissed off) I now need to talk to my mom about what to do. I want to go back to another naturopath/herbalist that I saw once or twice and see if he can help me more. He seemed much better, but the reason my mom didn't want to go to him is because he tells her to get off dairy to feel better and she "doesn't believe her health problems are food related!!!!!! So since she wanted a new opinion, we found another crappy person. My mom is driving me crazy. I just am so annoyed and I have so much freakin school work, I don't know what to do since I can't sit down and do it because I just keep falling asleep.

Sorry for the bad mood...can't help it! :(

Really, you think the TMJ could be something else? I have no idea. All I know is, my jaw is in terrible pain. One dentist told me I am literally scraping bone against bone. I believe it. I can hear it next to my ear! :o

I have no idea what to do about my wisdom teeth. I may have a clearer idea on that once I know about Lyme. I bet I have it. My doctor seemed to be leaning toward abandoning the root canal from what she said. Although she did not give a direct answer, she said most holistic dentists will not do root canals. So, I assume the molar should be pulled according to her opinion.

I'm not saying it's not the wisdom teeth but other things like lyme and I think mercury can also cause TMJ symptoms. I think you should have the tooth pulled as well.

I ate some cashews yesterday and so far no gastric upset, so I'm pretty sure it was the supplement. I'm not sure I even want to test that out by taking another one. :P

Hope the cashews work out for you. :) Did you go to church. We are forgetting what church is. With all T's sensitivities we've found it easier to stay home.

I'm not even on here nough to get a mention anymore ;)

You know we love you Laura. I'll be sending out mass emails again to those I have email addresses of for the ASYRA reports.

Chloe and I leave tomorrow for NY! We get to see Dr. H himself this time. :)

Wow! That came up quick. I'd like an update again. If you need me to resend my email let me know. :)

I'm afraid I've fallen off the wagon biiig time :(:angry:

That happens to everyone at some time or another. Hopefully this will help to stick with it for a while and choose less problematic foods if you feel the need to cheat. I hope this doesn't keep you down long.

Well, I went to the naturopath and she was USELESS!

I'm so sorry Kassandra. I can PM you the doctors name that I mentioned before in LA. If you google Dr. Klinghardt there is a webpage he has that has the names of people that have done training with him. One of the doctors is in LA. He's probably be a much bigger help for you.

Aw Susie...I think that's how we learn best sometimes. Vent away!

Sorry about that appointment Kassandra...like all other kinds of health care, it sometimes takes a while to find someone good. I'm sorry you didn't get anywhere today!

Andrea, yes, I ended up going to church. I actually had gone upstairs and put my pjs back on and got on the couch, but started feeling weird so went up got dresses again, put my makeup on and went. Told all my friends that I was exhausted and to excuse my yawning and seeming lack of interest, lol. They were really great and I'm glad I went.

I layed down on the couch for a while earlier and actually dozed a bit, but felt AWFUL when I woke up. Stomach was almost nauseated. Can't even imagine what THAT's from. :(

I'm just starting to read "Mold Warriors", and sheesh is IT scarey, lol. I am reading myself on every page. :( Lyme may be the biggest burden on my body, but I'm betting a lot of my symptoms are from the mold.

Andrea, I probably have your email address ... I imagine I'll be able to post most of it though. I don't think there will be too many changes in my protocol.

Kassandra, I don't know what's wrong with your back, have you told us the specifics before? I remember you mentioning having trouble walking too far with your backpack. Have you tried chiropractic? I found that to be a big help with my back, and the nerves do all run through your spinal cord.

It's tough having this kind of problem so young ... my first major Lyme flare was my second year of college ... it was a miserable year. My roommate took me to the ER because I only got out of bed to go to class. I slept most of the time ... well, not really, I had terrible insomnia, LOL. Nothing like being wiped out and AWAKE! <_< The ER doctor told me not to drink so much. <_<<_<

You haven't been gluten-free for long, have you? It takes time. Your body has been out of balance for a while, and it will take a while to get it back ... keep plugging away on the anti-candida stuff .... I'd also be concerned about your back. I'm taking NT Factor for fatigue ... will one of these naturopaths get some for you? They only sell the full-strength stuff to docs.

I'm still totally wiped out. Adam is not going with me to NY this time ... it's going to be tough. Dr. H is a couple hours away from La Guardia.

Andrea, that's awful the pain you are going through, on top of all the challenges recently with elimination diets. Hope it is better soon.

Rachel, that's great news about chelation. You've done so much to get ready for that.

Susie, yep, we've all been there. Sometimes it just takes us awhile to be sure we have to do something!

Kassandra, that is so frustrating. The dry skin brushing is for detox, the idea is that we excrete toxins from our skin as well. The brushing removes dead skin cells and toxins, and stimulates the lymph system.

With a natural brush (I bought mine in the bath section of the Fred Meyers), brush with strokes that go toward the heart, 5 times in each spot. Don't do it after a shower, but you can before. You can do this a couple of times a day.

The fatigue is really debilitating. The doctor that first diagnosed me with allergies told me he was amazed that I had made it through college.

I don't know if you are willing to try the ecoffee that some of us do. That really helps me with the fatigue, and is the detox that helps me the most.

To help with the sugar cravings, can you prepare "munch" foods? I buy raw cashews and dry roast in the oven. This has a balance of protein and complex carbs. There are some beans that are roasted and crunchy and really tasty, I don't know if you can get them in the USA. Pumpkin seeds are good and if you are cracking the shells and removing the meat and stuff, it might help you keep awake!

Carla,

I have Scheuermann's Disease. It is kind of hard to explain, but here is a link that explains it. My degree is 67, and anyone over 60 degrees should have surgery with metal rods, and bolts, etc. We obviously don't want to do that, but the back brace I have makes my disc pain worse. I was hospitalized in June for disc bulge at L5-S1 and had two cortisone epidural blocks...which did nothing. Well, they got me walking, but I'm still in a lot of pain. I was also in PT for 2 months every other day for two hours. So since the brace that is supposed to straighten me out causes unbearable pain, I can't wear it and we're worried I'm going to have to have major spinal surgery. So we need to get a second opinion for that. The doctor I am seeing now for the disc problems told me to deal with it basically. I can't believe there is nothing else that can be done. I am also waiting to talk to a chiropractor to see if she is able to handle the complexity of my case before we waste yet another few hours only to find out she doesn't know what to do.

I have only been gluten-free for 4.5 months. The reason I think it's not gluten related is because all my symptoms went away for a month or two, just to return. If it is Candida the herbalist will give me stuff to help with the sugar cravings and kill the Candida.

I did get my mom to agree to take me to another herbalist who I have been to before. He is really good and the main person in there has a couple month long waiting list, but we'll wait. In the meantime we are going to go to Dr. Joe in his office who is also really good. We should get to see him this week. He gives herbs based on muscle testing, etc. Again, I hope he has more answers.

mftnchn,

I will try the body brushing thing. I think my mom already has one which would be nice. What is ecoffee? I unfortunately can't do any tree nuts right now. They give me migraines, so quick protein options are out. I also can't do dairy so I can't have cheese, etc. which aren't allowed on the Candida diet anyway.

Kassandra,

With all the problems that your're experiencing are you sure that you dont have Lyme??

Some people with Lyme have spinal/back pain as a primary symptom. One of the people treating me actually brought this up a couple of times....saying that Lyme loves the spinal area and can cause herniated discs, structural problems, etc.

Personally if I were in your situation I'd seek out an LLMD rather than an herbalist. A good LLMD is knowledgeable about candida and many other things which are associated with Lyme.

I think muscle testing can be very beneficial. I'd look for someone who can muscle test not only the herbs....but infections and other things that might be contributing to your health problems. That way you're not just getting treatment but you're getting some answers as well.

I dont know all of your situation or if you've already ruled Lyme out....just thought I'd throw that out there as a possibility.

That sounds like things nightmares come from. :o I would think the molds are behind your symptoms as well.

I hope it goes ok for you two tomorrow.

Does he do more than just herbs? A complete muscle testing workover would give you some answers as well. I'm thinking the guy in LA that is listed on Dr. K's site does ART and would be able to pinpoint things for you as well.....don't know if he does ASYRA or not.

I'll look up the info and PM it to you. :)

Okay guys, this is interesting, a friend of mine's father is a dentist. He's been brought before the dental board and is likely to lose his license (he sold his practice, so I guess it's a mute point anyway) for amalgam removal and all that goes along with it. He's gotten into alternative health I think to aide in his own mercury toxicity, but has a clinic with lots of equipment that alternative health providers use.

Anyway, he has LED, hyperbaric oxygen, IV ozone therapy, and Bicom (a machine that uses frequencies but different than rife). He also has a FIR sauna and an ozone sauna.

I'm going to ask the doc about them on Tues, which he thinks will help, but I wanted to get your opinions, too.

I won't be able to check back until Thursday.

Rachel, you're right about that lower back pain. It was always a problem for me. Chiropractic helped a lot, but wasn't the cure.

I am not sure that I don't have Lyme. It is totally possible. The herbalist I am going to is amazing. They actually deal with people with Lyme. Here is the link to their site if anyone is interested. They do muscle testing as a form diagnostic testing as well as which herbs to use. Ugh, if I have Lyme...then what? We can't afford to travel to New York to see a good LLMD. Unfortunately we have so many medical bills with such crappy insurance we are really stuck. That is the main reason we are going Eastern, it's more reasonable. I do know I have a lot of the symptoms of Lyme, but who really knows. It could be as simple as Candida, but then again it could be something more complicated such as Lyme. I think I need to go with my mom's plan for a little and then if it doesn't work, I will try Lyme testing. I need to find the Lyme thread for more questions.

I agree, I am way too young for all this. <_<

Ok...so heres my update. :)

I had alot of testing prior to my mercury LED. The girl usually spends a good amount of time and is very thorough in checking everything.

So we tested all the things needed for my chelation protocol....she determined the doses for those things and I'm not on a high dose of DMSA. My body didnt want 250 mg's so I'm currently on 100 mg.'s every 3 days.

Along with the DMSA...I'm taking lipoic acid and NAC. I still dont test well for chlorella....none of the brands tested well for me. Its the only thing my body has been really stubborn about. :rolleyes:

She tested me for some stem cell capsules and my body responded very well to that so I'm taking that on my DMSA days.

I never heard of this stuff but the girl is using it herself and she said its the only thing so far thats stopped her vitiligo from spreading (she only has a few spots).

The receptionist told me this stuff cured her knee problem which the dr.'s insisted she needed surgury for. She said her son took it and when he got a tatoo it healed very rapidly...no swelling or anything. So I guess its some good stuff. :huh:

I dont know if I'm reacting to impurities in the chlorella or if if my body just doesnt like algae?? The stem cell stuff is totally pure...she said shes been to the place where its made and learned alot about it. It tastes kind of good to me. :P

I have an appt. to see the Dr. on Monday (after my vacation). He's gonna be checking everything again and I'm sure I'll find out more about how they're gonna proceed with me.

My thyroid is one area of focus right now. My basal temp. is too low...I'm continuing to check this daily for the Dr. They also want to test my thyroid meds on Monday and most likely will have me switch to compounded stuff. She said she suspects I'm probably reactive to what I'm taking right now.

I gotta get lab tests for my thyroid done too (its gonna be a busy week).

I also have to bring a list of the abx I've taken....particularly the ones taken right after the dental work. I actually came across something from Klinghardt which talked about the abx getting hung up with metals....so thats basically what they wanna check. She said it could really contribute to the fungal issues as well.

I asked her if there's any way that its NOT mercury thats causing all these problems for me???

She said theres other stuff going on...especially the fungal stuff which definately needs attention. As far as the mercury....she said theres nothing else showing up in me. None of the other things that could be causing the symptoms are showing up at all. In all of the areas where I'm highly toxic and having symptoms....thats where they're finding the mercury in me.

She tested me on Friday and said that the areas where mercury is showing up is my jaw, brain, thyroid and gut. She didnt test my kidneys but I think there is also a heavy mercury burden there as well. My liver doesnt test positive for mercury....its mostly the fungal toxins affecting my liver.

My thyroid autoimmune problems were most likely caused by the mercury. :(

So far I'm doing well with my antimicrobials and steadily increasing the drops. I'm also doing ok with my antifungals and the diet....its been about 3 weeks w/out any sugar or starches. I havent experienced any bad die-off with anything I've done so far. I think its only because I'm taking alot of detox stuff throughout the day.

There was 2 times that I got real spacey at work after my morning meds. I was feeling kind of disoriented but it cleared up once I was able to go home and take the detox stuff. Since then I'm taking the detox supplements to work with me. :P

We talked alot about mercury during my appt. The girl is also mercury toxic and had fertility problems because of it....she had alot of amalgams but only has one left to remove.

She's been to the conventions that Dr. Cowden has had and shes met alot of dentists who are or were very mercury toxic. She said alot of dentists are starting to get wise about it and many of them wont even remove amalgams from patients because they dont want to put themselves and their staff at risk.

She said theres one dentist who attends who used to act very crazy..... saying off the wall things and just very loud and obnoxious. Now after detoxing mercury he's calm and basically has a totally different personaility.

She said we wont know how much mercury is contributing to my symptoms until we start getting rid of it. Now that we've started we can monitor whats going on with my body and that'll give us a good indication. She said some people notice changes about a month into chelation.

I'm not sure how long it will take for me because my dose is pretty low. I do know that following my LED on Friday and my first dose of DMSA (along with the other supplements)....I woke up in the middle of the night with lower back pain.

That pain is totally familiar and the last time I had it that noticeably was when I was on NDF. Its definately kidney pain so I'm pretty sure the metals are moving through. This time the pain didnt persist cuz I'm moving my bowels, drinking a ton of water and taking all the other things to assist my body in excreting it. I'm taking alot of glutathione most days.

I notice that I'm very social at work lately....the most talkative I've been since getting sick. Once I started getting real sick I was kind of withdrawn and keeping to myself...not wanting to be around other people so much. Even last year when Dave was working with me...I was mostly keeping to myself. My mom says she notices that I'm laughing alot now....whereas before I wasn't so cheerful.

I think things are improving little by little. Unfortunately, the food issues remain the same. :rolleyes:

I'm looking forward to my appt. with the Dr. :)

The Dr.'s I see who use muscle testing or ART...all test for Lyme. They have testers for all sorts of infections....including candida, specific molds, Lyme, parasites, viruses and bacteria. I'm in California.....I'm sure there are Dr.'s in your area who are looking for these things. Its also possible that the guy you're gonna see might have testers for these.

This type of testing can give you a good idea of what you're dealing with...then you can follow-up with labtests if you choose.

Rachel, you're right about that lower back pain. It was always a problem for me. Chiropractic helped a lot, but wasn't the cure.

Lower back pain could also be a symptom of toxic overload......I get that when my bowels arent moving or my kidneys are taxed....trying to move toxins through.

Before I made diet changes a couple years ago the lower back pain was pretty constant. The conventional Dr.'s were wanting me to use some kind of lumbar support cuz they said the pain was from driving....since I had a long commute. Whatever. :rolleyes:

Anyway, he has LED, hyperbaric oxygen, IV ozone therapy, and Bicom (a machine that uses frequencies but different than rife). He also has a FIR sauna and an ozone sauna.

I think its a great idea! Alot of dentists are learning this stuff cuz of their own ordeals....there are usually alot of dentists attending the seminars and learning how to incorporate things like LED into their practice.

I would find out whatever you can about the dentist....has he been doing this stuff for awhile? How much experience does he have? Has he been getting good results with his patients? I would also find out if he attended Cowden's training classes for LED and what kind of testing does he do alongside that??

Scott has said some good things about ozone...I think its something he still does but I dont know anything about it myself.

I think if the dentist is pretty knowledgable about this stuff it does sound really good. Is he in your area...that would be even better! :)

Good luck to both you and Chloe on your trip to NY. :)

Dear Laura,

I did not forget you! I did not mention you because I have at least seen you! :) We all would love to hear more from you, though! It is always a pleasure to read your posts! Plus, you had posted during the past couple of weeks off and on. I figured you were busy in that groovy car, going cool places!

So, how are you doing? What all supplements are you on now? Any changes Lyme-wise? You mentioned a while back about some new problems cropping up in testing. What is going on with those?

Dear Donna,

I am glad you got up and went to church afterall. Your friends sounded like they really helped you feel a bit better. Sharing time with others can really aid recovery. As long as they are positive people, that is. ;) You do not want any energy suckers around!

Speaking of, did you ever find that chrystal? I think it really could help the insomnia. Regardless, having it on you or in your pocket will protect you from the vampiric people. I hate those people. :angry: They are everywhere!

"Mold Warriors" sounds like an interesting read. I wish I could afford some books. Maybe the library has it. I could check. I bet a lot of your troubles are related to mold. I am sure mine are!

That is awful about your stomach acting up again. :( Could it be the cashews? Or is it something else? Also, were you feeling that way after napping in the living room? The Candida in there may aggravate your system. Minimizing the exposure to it may help.

Dear Susie,

Do not be so hard on yourself! You were doing great for a while! Just get back on the horse is all you can do! ;) We all have our moments! All of those foods sound very difficult to resist.

As you mentioned and so did Donna, we all have a point of denial. We then make a bad choice, that ends up hurting us. At that time, we quickly realize that we have to take action, no matter how difficult it may be. There seems to have to be a breaking point where we have no choice but to do what is necessary to repair the damage. With Celiac, Candida, and other food intolerance issues, this becomes frustrating and often leads to a feeling of severe deprivation. I understand how you feel with this, because it is difficult enough being gluten-free and not tolerating lactose, so the Candida restrictions really appear exhaustive.

Psychologically, this gives us the desire to rebel. Although we are fully aware of how unwise our indulgence is, that does not always thwart the poor food choices. We suffer consequences after that. It is a double-edged sword that cuts your hand no matter how you grab it. Even reaching for the handle carefully cannot prevent you from cutting your hand. :(

Dear Rachel,

There you are! :) I was wondering where you went! How was your mercury LED? When will you know if you are finally releasing metals? Are you going to do another provoked urine test to see?

Your update is very encouraging! I am sorry to hear the food issues are the same. The sociability change is great!

Stem cell supplementation is something I had not heard of. It is very interesting!

Kassandra sounds a lot like me. Lyme sounds very probable. My doctor is supposed to checkout IgeniX and get back to me about the Western Blots. She better! :angry: I am tired of waiting on her to get well!

Thank you for the Lisa update! We are all concerned. She is in a difficult situation. I hope she begins feeling better soon. Her body cannot take anymore!

Dear Carla,

New York is a great place! It is awful you are so drained. That can make doing the simplest thing difficult. We will be eager to hear what Dr. H said about you and Chloe. Have a great flight!

I get a lot of lower back pain. I thought it was from my ovaries, but now Lyme looks like a good possibility for the cause.

Is it typical upon waking up? That is when it bothers me, for about a half hour after I get up. It reminds me of the pain you get during your period.

The insomnia you describe is similar to what I have. You feel really tired, but cannot sleep. I get wired, and almost hyped up, yet feel exhausted when I stand up. Walking is difficult. My legs often feel heavy.

I certainly would prefer a holistic dentist if possible. Around here, we have very few dentists. I wish I knew a holistic dentist. I like the doctor I am seeing now, he is very relaxed. He is observant of my concerns due to the health issues.

Dear tom,

Where is this avatar from? Somewhere in SJ I assume is where that was taken. They sure seem to have a lot of nice things. What all landmarks do they have? SJ probably has many more than Evansville!

Dear Kassandra,

My parents are so aggravating like yours. They live in their own little world. La-dee-frickin' da! No one knows how hard it is for us to get through a day. Most people would have blown a moon roof in their skulls already. They are not as strong as we are.

How disappointing about that naturopath being a dud! It takes all kinds. Morons are all over the place. What is so amazing is how many complete idiots graduated from places like Vanderbuilt with a medical degree. This blows my mind. Maybe this other doctor you are going to see will be able to identify and treat your issues.

Lyme is a good possibility from what you are describing. It causes your hormones to go crazy, too. The entire endocrine system suffers from it. If the Yaz is not helping anymore, fibroids or cysts could be causing the bleeding. That needs taken care of. Back pain can also be aggravated further by this.

I will try to checkout the back problem you have. Maybe there are new treatments available that you do not know about. I will poke around and see what I can find. You never know where info will pop up! Just tapping a few keys is all it takes!

We cannot afford to go to New York, either. That is the closest LLMD to here. You would think there would be more than that. You are lucky, because you live in LA. There are LLMDs near there.

Dear Sherry,

I agree that fatigue can be hard to handle. You just cannot get anything done due to your exhausted state. When your body is fatigued, so is your brain. There are times you just cannot seem to do anything at all! Being able to focus is essential in studying and work, but my attention span can be too short. I always have been hyper, though.

Dear Andrea,

Mercury and Lyme are certainly on the TMJ cause suspect list. I know I have been exposed to mercury. Although no fillings are present, other factors are involved. Consuming a lot of tuna and salmon is one. My mother had silver fillings in her mouth when she was pregnant with me, too. I received the MMR vaccines and Tetanus on top of those. The thing is, my mouth is very overcrowded.

My teeth look like a train wreck. The bottom teeth are really bad. I am not sure if leaving the teeth in there would be good for me. I am so confused about my dental situation right now. I am sure my molar needs pulled and not root canaled, though. At least that is one thing I know.

Sincerely,

Jin

If you have overcrowding that's another thing. You need to make room in your mouth.

You don't have to have amalgams to have mercury problems. Mitch tested for Mercury II and Mercury I, II, III for Toxic Substances. He has no amalgam and never has. He did have tons of shot in the military as well as eating seafood in the past, so that's probably where his came from.

Maybe you could start pestering your doctor. If you have the funds for the test, how about ordering the paperwork from Igenix and taking it in to be signed and have the blood draw done. If I remember correctly you send in payment with the sample.....I think that's what Carla said.

Dear Andrea,

My mouth is terribly overcrowded. My skull literally feels like it is being crushed sometimes. Migraines often make my whole neck and shoulder area hurt along with my jaws. However, Lyme could be aggravating this if it is present. I know the stiff neck I get no matter how I sleep is very likely caused be that.

My mercury definitely would be from fish and seafood, as well as vaccines. Exposure in the womb is another thing. Mom had a few fillings before I was born already. There is no telling how much was in her system at that time. Poor Mitch! :( Did you say he was taking Chlorella to combat the metals?

I may very well have to pester her. These idiots seem to have no sense of urgency. It is a damn good thing I was not having a heartattack when I walked into her office, or a might have had to wait for her to get a freakin' cup of coffee before being brought back from cardiac arrest! :rolleyes: ER doctors can be that way. Apparently, some of these people fail to understand the emergency part of their job title. My parents will not order the test until they know the doctor approves, so I have to wait on that. :(

Sincerely,

Jin

Hey everyone-

sorry i ahve not been posting just overwhemed. I think i am caught up -it does seem like alot of people have been missing lately.

Laura-

I would LOVE a PM from you I would love to hear how you are doing.

Here is a quick update-

today i ahve chelation it is my 9th so after my next one next week i will redo the test and see waht the changes are I am looking forward to this!!! Having the colonics right after has definitly helped to be able to tolerate the chealtion.

I did get my fillings removed it was very easy (I just had 2 small ones) .

I am on a mediciene for parasites and worms in addition to theblack walnut i was already taking. I started it yeturday. I have taken it before but only for three day periods this time i am going on it for 2 weeks but at a smaller dose - 2 a day as opposed to 3 . I am a little nervous about the 2 week thing but I am hoping i will be ok.

I know theres more but that is the main stuff.

Rachel-

Donna-glad your having fun with your new phone and hopefully the cashews are not a problem

Thanks for the update Rachel...also looking forward to hearing about the doctor's appointment!

Speaking of, did you ever find that chrystal? I think it really could help the insomnia. Regardless, having it on you or in your pocket will protect you from the vampiric people. I hate those people. :angry: They are everywhere!

...

That is awful about your stomach acting up again. :( Could it be the cashews? Or is it something else? Also, were you feeling that way after napping in the living room? The Candida in there may aggravate your system. Minimizing the exposure to it may help.

Nope, haven't got the crystal yet...I KNOW I have some swarovski(sp?) crystals though, so maybe I'll just start wearing my bracelets again, lol. I don't know if they are quartz though...not sure what kind of crystal they are.

And yep, I was in the living room...my doctor just warned me that until I get the carpet taken out I shouldn't spend a lot of time in the living room, but that's nearly impossible. I'm going to ask him or one of the other doctors I see about CSM...Carla is taking that I think...can't remember how to spell it though, lol. It's mentioned in Mold Warriors as something to take if you are constantly being exposed to the mold. It's a cholesterol med, but somehow it helps with the toxic mold thing. Realistically, it may be several more months before I can even THINK of ripping out the carpet, so the med would help in the meantime.

Thanks for the encouragement everyone! This is just going to be a quick post as I'm off to pick DS up from school in a minute.

I've got back on with the diet today - although saying that have only just eaten my lunch (it's 3pm here :o ) as work was a nightmare this morning and I've been to the hospital for my appointment at the recurrent miscarriage clinic. They took 9 vials of blood! :o:o I can't believe I'm still standing lol Had a steak when I got home :)

Anyways, after yesterdays detonating stomach :P even DH had to admit that I have a very strange stomach!

Got to go.
