Many changes have occured since I was here last. My son has ADHD and we have changes his diet to eliminate all preservatives, food dyes, and artifical flavorings and sweeteners. At this point we have also eliminated natural foods that contain salicylate, but hope to add those back in eventually. His teacher said she has seen a difference, and so have I. This is great news, but means that we are watching labels like crazy, and making nearly everything from scratch.
Now, I have been sidelined by my knee. Years of the extra weight added to bad knees to begin with has brought about severe knee pain---to the point where just standing has become difficult. Hopefully, rest, ice, and time will help. Physical therapy is probably in the future.
The good thing is that (hopefully) this is not permanent and I have gotten a wakeup call regarding my future if I do not make some serious changes. Time to fight for more changes.
