Normal is pretty easy,... so far

The Normal Plan: eat like I have to for the rest of my life. I skip meals if I'm not hungry, I load up on veg if I feel like it, I eat out with my son,... what ever. It all has to balance and it has to feel normal, but dialed down. Again, I'm no... Read more
This is not a diet.

I'm not even going to use a scale. I don't care how long it takes. I am so fed up with punishing myself for a short while, to look good for an equally short while. Then I get lazy, gain it all back and face another round of shame. meanwhile, I... Read more

Over the last few weeks I got a little lax when it came to taking all my vitamins (there's SO many). I finally noticed that my overall health started to deteriorate. I'm back to the vigilant vitamin-taking and I'm feeling pretty good again. ... Read more

A thunderbolt hit me yesterday. I eat too much because I was taught that if I didn't eat enough I'd DIE. The truth is, I am surrounded by food, I live near a grocery store and we have a good income. I don't need to eat as though I was abo... Read more

I think I'm sliding into a depression

Usually, I don't know it 'til it's over. Despite feeling good from my diet, I've noticed that my breath, sweat and pee smell funny, like plastic. Most recently, I'm tired all the time, always want to sleep, do not want to engage with people... Read more
MS update. Meat = Constipation
Friday, February 03, 2012      3 comments

It's confirmed, for me anyway. Animal tissue brings on constipation. My husband's been away this week, so I've gotten a lot of writing done, but have neglected cooking. Which means I've been having a lot of Thai take out with my son. I pick o... Read more

First, the cold has been well and truly gone for days. I'm doing my weekly Avonex (interferon) shot every 10-14 days. I only squeeze in half-3/4 dose. Seems to lessen the flu symptoms. Diet is easy now that the evidence that it makes me fe... Read more

I had a pretty decent weekend and yesterday I actually felt better. However, I had a dreadful night coughing and now I feel sick again. I've been avoiding my interferon shot because it would lower my immune system. Counterintuitively, I'm goin... Read more

,... too well. With my interferon shot (Avonex) and the diet and the mega vitamins, my immune system has been shut off. I still have a huge cold. Every day I get a little bit better, but it still owns me. In my tinkering i have: suspended... Read more
BB Diet: I'd like to say I feel better, but
Tuesday, January 03, 2012      2 comments

I have a cold again. And interesting upshot (try to follow my logic, faulty that it might be) is this: In brief, MS is an overactive immune system. I used to never get colds, while the MS was otherwise savaging my body. I take a weekly int... Read more
