I'm from East Tennessee, and I love it here, except for the economy. I'm a coffee addict. It does help my ADD and I have loved it since I was a baby. My granddaddy used to let my drink black coffee straight from my bottle when my mom wasn't around to fuss.
Can you imagine how people would freak out now if they heard of someone giving a baby a bottle of coffee?! LOL People...Anyway...
Fibromyalgia isn't supposed to be an inflammatory illness, though I've been discussing on some other boards the cause of having a chronic low-grade fever, which I've had for over a year now. I've been to see specialists over it, but they can't find anything and are saying it's just from seasonal allergies. I'm skeptical because I am noticing that I tend to swell with increased activity, especially in my ankles, which I severely sprained a couple of years ago. Hopefully it's from that and not my organs getting ready to shut down. If I die soon, I'm gonna be really PO'd, and I'm not kidding.
I haven't tried a vegan diet because I'm afraid I'll starve to death. At a minimum, I must have fish and eggs. I have non-diabetic reactive hypoglycemia and eating yummy animals seems to work well for me. I might try it if I get desperate. Nothing is an impossibility at this point. I'll have to look up the anti-inflammatory diet, for sure. Thanks!
