  1. Thought you might like to know what happened at the doc's

    Nothing that's what. I struggled to the clinic, explained my symptoms - the shit wasn't the remotest bit interested!

    I have spent Wednesday, yesterday and today, fighting the PCT (not easy for...

    Thank you all for your suggestions. I'm now wondering if I have cysts on my left ovary, as that's where the pain's concentrated. The fall wasn't bad (my rucksack broke it). I'm going to struggle to...

    Thanks for that, but how would it do in a British climate? I would haver thought that, because its origin is Asia, it'd need more warmth than we're guaranteed over here!

    Depends on the size of the carton, doesn't it? I guess you must have massive cartons in the US. Half the carton in this case was around 75ml.
  8. Swollen, painful, distended abdomen, aching all over and swollen boobs

    Hello friends (I hope!)

    I've been plucking up the courage to post about this for a few days, because I was hoping it might go away on its own (but it's just becoming worse).

    I don't know...

    I'm with Maba - I do sometimes find your posts VERY Americanised, to the point where they hold zero relevance to us in the UK (or to me at least); the thing is, we're not so enlightened over here,...

    I agree. I did have some mashed last night (made with goats' butter and heavy cream) to go with a most excellent slow cooker stew (which WAS 100% primal - well, apart from the 250ml of red wine!...

    Hollie,

    I WISH we had such open-minded docs, dieticians and nutritionists here in the UK. I used to suffer from chronic, sometimes acute, IBS! Of course I was always being told "You're not eating...

    I sense a common theme here - PIZZA!! When I was a big fat bint - I used to have Domino's bookmarked and on speed-dial! That was when I used to look like this: -

    I can add no more than what the others have said. I've fallen off the wagon a bit too of late (it's a rocky road - literally! My kid sis made some for us at xmas and I can't help nibbling!)

    Maba, I would do - I think your rellies and friends who aren't of a scientific bent, would find it almost impossible to wade through. It's also a smaller tome I believe (if I received GCBC as a gift...

    I always have a couple of grams of cinnamon in my coffee when I IF. I sprinkle turmeric on every meal, too. Now I just need to find somewhere that sells them in bulk - paying 1.20 for a 50g jar of...

    Been out on the lash, mate...?! You can usually come up with pithier put-downs than that - you're slipping! C'mon - you can do better than that! Hit me with yer best shot! G'on - ya knows ya want to!

    Hiya folksies,

    Switch to goats' milk. It's A2 casein (rather than A1) and it's better tolerated by some (like me!). I actually prefer it to cows' now. All I need to do now is find goats' cream (I can only get it in...
