    oops, cross posted...

    ditto NW on getting a full blood work done if at all possible, otherwise taking things is mostly experimental. Plus prescribed supplements would hopefully be reliable in having in them what they say they have. USP and NSP certification of supplements helps too (I found a huge difference when the vitamin d that my blood work showed I needed was switched to one with USP certification)


    Given that you pretty much know when it is coming, it should make it a bit easier to experiment with a different combo of macros each month? Keeping meticulous notes?

    One thing I know is that I do not get a wide variety of vegetables. I eat basically salad, peppers, onions, broccoli and cauliflower and not every day. What I loved about vlc was that I didn't worry about veggies.

    Is it possible now with your husband working full time that you could afford to see a specialist to help with the ED?

    Have you ever thought about hypnosis?

    Maybe in a few months once we catch up. We have been robbing Peter to pay Paul for so long. We also have a new $500/month bill for college tuition.

    I have a weird fear of hypnosis. Not sure where I would go to get it anyway.

    Well lets step back and think about if there was some macro mix that seemed to lead you into the TOM hormone mix better than any of the others? Maybe increasing red meat just before?

    Before I would recommend spending any money of counselors/chiropractors/hypnotists/specialists (not that I have anything against any of these-just thinking given your financial situation, history of/success with seeking help, and possibility of figuring it out on your own once you can ascertain the deficiency), I would go with the full blood work spectrum. But that is just me.

    p.s. to me the easiest way to ensure a good veggie mix is to only buy in season, it is usually the cheapest in the store because it is in abundance, tastes best, and is most nutritious. A farmer's market is a good place to find this if you have a convenient one, but grocery stores have seasonal stuff, it may just take a little research to figure out what is in season.

    I'm having a weird allergic reaction to something. It started at rehearsal. My right ear became hot and itchy, then my neck and face, finally my left ear. I bought and took some benedryl on the way home.

    Unfortunately this set off my anxiety issue. I am now imagining my throat is closing up. It isn't, but that doesn't stop my imagination.

    The scary thing is that I think it was my Paleo Granola. It smelled a little fermented to me this afternoon.
    I'm sure I'll be fine.

    After some reflection, I am starting a new macro experiment tomorrow. I plan to report # of days binge free, maybe weight and physical / emotional state on a daily basis. I may choose to keep the exact nature of the plan to myself for a while.

    I promise to post early tomorrow to prove I am still alive.

    I do the same thing -- having gone through an episode of anaphylactic shock many years ago! If my palms start to itch I start to feel panic and get all freaked out.

    Story: I ate strawberries one 4th of July. A few hour later my palms were itching terribly!! by morning I was unable to walk to the bathroom -- I crawled to the bathroom so I didn't wet myself. I crawled back to the bedroom where I called my husband (now ex) and told him I needed to go to the doctor ASAP. He rushed home and took me the doc - dropping off our 4 year old at my sisters on the way. The doctor looked me over - took my BP sitting, standing and laying down. Then told my now ex --- do you want to get her to hospital or should we call an ambulance? My BP was 80/50 and I was falling into a coma. At the hospital I began to recover before they even administered Benedryl (which I'm also allergic to -- causes hives!) My BP steadily rose, but the hives remained for a couple days. To this day I don't eat fresh strawberries.

    Allergic reactions are scary - and not to be taken lightly. I understand your anxiety.
