Suebnelson-Congrats to this monumental progress into the realm of denial for a cause. The words seem to bounce over the deep ouch of this mandatory change. I applaud your update. I know that over 3,000 people on this team have explored the scary steps and the temerity required to get just that far. Well done Clever Girl!
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;
That is great news! I too love chocolate but I like it too much. Reducing the food sensitivities makes it all easier. I always liked the analogy to the full rain barrel. The water can sit over the top of the barrel (that rounded effect) but it only takes one drop to send it all spilling over. Reduce the sensitivities (like gluten) and there is more room in the rain barrel. Barb
I just wanted to drop a note out there that may give hope to some of you. I have now been off of gluten for 18 months and am feeling great. I have discovered that I can now eat chocolate and sesame seeds that caused me problems before. I believe that my small intestine has healed enough to keep it from being "leaky". Yeah! I love chocolate and am SO happy to have it back in my life. Also sesame seeds. So many of the gluten free chips, crackers, and other products use chocolate and sesame seeds. I feel as if my world of food options has opened up immensely!
I have never really felt deprived from the reduction in what I could eat, but it certainly is a lot more fun being able to eat chocolate again.
