    • I haven't eaten anything since dinner last night. 20 hours. I'm hungry but not wanting to eat. I have some kokanee ready to be cooked and I think I will do that in a couple hours.

      Hubby will be late tonight -- well, he's always late -- but tonight he is going over to a friends house to talk about selling some boats. He had made arrangements to go talk with Jim about his boats tonight because his health was diminishing (lung cancer) and he wanted to take care of things before he passed. But, Jim's wife called this morning and said Jim had just passed. So, hubby is going to talk to her about the boats. I don't know what he has - I know he has a 30' pontoon with a full tent cover - but its in bad shape. Jim was trying to sell it for years but he had it way over priced. Hubby has known Jim for many years so this might be difficult for him.

      • I've found when I go out to eat they are very willing to make special meals for me. I'm very nice and just explain I'm allergic. I look to see whats on the menu that I can put together. So at a Mexican place, I ask for fajitas, no beans, no rice with extra avocado. Tomi - you just ask for meat only, no onion, no tomato. Yes, it takes some work hunting thru the menu and occasionally I have to pay a bit more, but in the end its worth it.

              No need. We all have our weak points. I think you need to get over the all or nothing mindset. For example, you seem okay with cashews, but mention avoiding all nuts. Pick and choose wisely. And remember the B.G.P.

              • todays food: 3 kokanee pan fried in olive oil. No sauces. a handful of cashews. I'm thinking 500 calories tops. I might make some eggs later but only if I'm feeling the need to feed.

                  I decided cashews should be ok since they are on the safe fodmaps list.

                        • an old friend invited me to meet him for lunch next week and as we were "chatting" via facebook he asked about my diet. I told him I eat according the Primal Blueprint and it has cured my fibromyalgia! I forgot his wife has fibro and he said maybe he needs to bring her to the lunch --- I said "ABSOLUTELY!!!! I'd love to help her change her life!!!" I'm so excited that I may have found my first convert! We're meeting up Thursday at noonish. At WENDYs of all places! I will order a chicken salad I think. Or maybe just get something to drink and say I'm not hungry.

                          I also have a friend who's wife has MS and she is trying really hard to eat a clean Paleo diet. I'm trying to give her help and support too.

                          maybe this what I need to get my head in the game completely! Can't hardly play the "do as I say not as I do" game.

                          • I have to weigh in with Marcadav et al above. You are dosing yourself nearly every day with things that may be triggers to your symptoms. Tiny bits are plenty, if they're the culprits. And yes to no shame. We all have our weak points and failures. Unfortunately, your symptoms are pretty damn significant, and you need to do what you have to do to sort them out. Find your priorities. It is doable.

                              Can you meet somewhere other than Wendys? Everything is processed, including the chicken. It's how they make everything taste the same at all their thousands of restaurants.

                              FWIW, cashews are generally considered to be legumes, although Mark thinks they are okay.

                              • I could ask him to meet me someplace else - that's not a problem. I'll think of something. I could brown bag it No shame in that. What about Wendys bake potato - would that be safe? You can't process a baked potato.

                                They have a bacon and cheese baked potato.
