NK, I have your number, and I cherish it, I really do, but I get such anxiety just THINKING about talking to people on the phone that I've never spoken to before. It's embarrassing. This goes beyond how my brain is right now, it's a general issue.
Man, I can barely make eye contact with people today (therapist). I haven't had that problem since early on in Primal. I forgot what that could be like. Now I'm wondering if I'm doing something wrong food-wise that could be a factor. Could rice a few times a week really be that detrimental to my mental health?! I didn't have this issue with potatoes, so I will pick some up this weekend and start cutting out the rice and subbing with taters for some carbs. I'm still nibbling at the apples my mom gave me (Cortland, I think? kinda mealy, I prefer a crunch). anyway, it could just be the gut issues causing absorption problems and all sorts of other things. We're out of butter so I'm effectively avoiding dairy.
Next time I get a sweet tooth urge, I splurge on cocoa. This carob stuff is just not as awesome. I could probably learn to like it, but why bother?
I'm feeding my 12lb cat 1/4 cup of dry Nature's Variety (grain-free) twice a day and I'm pretty sure she's getting fatter (not jumping up on the couch as easily, has to claw-climb onto the bed now). This is supposed to be the right amount for her to lose weight. I think I'll switch her back to the first grain-free dry food I tried her on, Orijen. I'm worried.
