I read the article on the Olive Garden and was pleased to know that I can still go there to eat and not feel too guilty. emoticon

I joined essential tremors but I don't really know what's it about. emoticon

    Essential Tremors is an "affliction" caused by a malfunction in the brain. It doesn't affect anyone with regard to their mentality - it caused uncontrollable tremors. Sometimes it is just a hand and/or arm, sometimes the legs, sometimes the head and sometimes the whole body. It also usually happens on one side of the body, but can happen on both. Stress and tiredness can make the problem worse. In my case, my hand/arm tremors were so severe that I often had to hold a drink in my left hand. Obviously I had to be extra careful with hot drinks. My arm also ended up very painful because of it, but most people don't have that problem with it. It can present in some ways similar to Parkinsons Disease, but is quite different, because Parkinsons will affect the mobility of the person whereas the Essential Tremors doesn't. Some people's handwriting is affected - it gets spidery and hard to read - mine did when the problem was bad. Most people can take medication for this, but I couldn't because I am an asthmatic so the combination of the medication and asthma could prove fatal for me. I had acupuncture to treat the problem, and now I hardly ever have any tremors, but if I do, it is usually only mild.

I hope this is some help to you and just yell out if you want more information.

    Do you have Essential Tremors? - uncontrollable shaking of the hands, head, legs or body - either individually or all together?

Would you like to know more about this "affliction"?

  I really love oatmeal and eat it several times a week for breakfast. When I was a kid, I always ate it with sugar and milk. When I first started getting serious about changing my eating habits, I began to eat organic oatmeal sweetened with artificial sweetener (yes, it is a contradiction of which I am full of many) or occasionally with organic honey or organic maple syrup and I recommend both of them highly for their great flavor.. Now I eat it with nothing in it and am crazy about it. Tastes do change. Maybe you'll like it someday.

    I've never had a problem liking healthy foods. I love to eat pretty much anything. The problem for me is the amount I eat. The recommended serving sizes always seem to me to be not big enough to satisfy a mosquito.

    I love oatmeal, I have fond memories eating it with my Nana. Try making it with milk instead of water. I used the old fashion oats and it takes 5 minutes on the stove, I stir it so it becomes creamy and then let it sit while I have my first cup of coffee, Adding cinnamon or pumpkin pie spice mix will give it a kick.

But if you really don't like it, try something else. You'll find foods that you like that are good for you.

    I LOVE oatmeal and eat it most days. I USED to hate it. It is a case of finding a way that you like. In my case it is made REALLY THICK, then thinned down to a consistancy I like with Calcium enriched Low Fat Soy Milk (added benefit of being cholesterol free) then sprinkle a little brown sugar over it, then drizzle a bit more soy milk over it.
