Hi Notmilk, and Team, You have mentioned ideas for input threads. How about an emotional link of hope and frustration formed in the changes from ‘normal food’ to the required restrictions and voluntary choices?
My issues are many and I am aware that, and know well that, a change can happen when I accept the change and plan for success. It is this emotional struggle of change that I tend to resist and deny and eventually, overcome into a form of acceptance. My food issues have found places in me that a doctor does not see or choose to direct, I do that. I am intolerant of gluten, artificials, corn, soy, high acid Solanaceae like tomato, bell pepper, potato, and eggplant. Then I must avoid all sulfite foods of vinegar, grapes, beets, rutabaga, cane sugar, dairy, eggs, carbonated meds, beverages and foods, and any commercially dehydrated food, caffeine, alcohol, citric acids and so on. Bitterness can overwhelm. Acceptance can cool this rage. A new perspective can influence a good change.
The greatest love story is your own.
If you miss out of life to the fullest; they win.
You are the happiness master of your own mind.
Thought is an active dynamic energy to harmonize and corrolate good.
Clear all paths to love thru forgiveness.
I may not recognize the significance until some time later.
Is my resistance to change really that strong?
Impatience does not provide the time to learn the lesson;
Awaken new ways to approach the dissolving of a problem;
