    Sleep - I slept better last night. I've been having crazy dreams & nightmares lightly, but I forgot last night's dream once I woke up. I take that as a good sign.

    Other - My parents' cat was diagnosed with hyperthyroid, parasites, and kidney infection a few weeks ago, before I moved. She was put on various medications, but I guess she recently took a turn for the worse and had to stay at the animal hospital overnight on an antibiotic IV. Poor girl. She's an outdoor cat, so it's not terribly surprising, but the cat I grew up with never got sick like that. My mom said it was about $1500 for the treatment! She said if something like this happens again, she'll probably have to get the cat put down because it's too expensive. If Fae ever got sick like that, I would probably see if a shelter would take her in & treat her, or post online to see if someone would adopt her and treat her. Such a depressing thought. I hope she stays healthy for the rest of her life!

    Yeah for happy dental visits! Glad you don't need the grafts

    You're overall tone is better I think I'm am very similar in that I will try something for a month and if I don't get the results I want or expect then I give up and move on to something else. Doing this over a long time usually results in a very steady decline in mood and motivation - ends in a week of "I don't give a crap!" ........... then I find my way back and try something else. I am happy to say that I still feel good and I think the probiotics are doing their thing

    Hope you find you're answer soon too.

    Thanks, Tomi!

    I found out that a co-worker is paleo today. He said he's probably 95%. I guess I am too, since I don't worry about quality if I'm out, but I'm fairly strict by necessity.

    Hi there -- New person here, just perusing some journals. I put yellow and green squash in chili all the time. Also curries, soups, and spaghetti sauce. It doesn't taste like much of anything, to be honest, but I figure more veg can't hurt!

    The small yellow squash and zucchinis are also good cut up and roasted in the oven with olive oil and garlic and salt and pepper.

    Have an excellent day!

    Oo I can definitely imagine it as a nice texture addition to spaghetti sauce. Thanks for dropping by! It was pretty tasty in the chili.

    I'm playing hookie today. I had a hard time falling asleep last night and feel kind of fuzzy in the head. Maybe it's die-off.

    I'm feeling down today. I am frustrated that there are so many supplements that will probably help me but I feel too guilty to buy. I need more Digest Gold. I want to get more slippery elm and some marshmallow root. I want to get aloe juice, but that at least is cheap at Trader Joe's in gallon sized jugs!

    I have to get some baby clothes for my sister-in-law's baby sprinkle that's on Saturday. I was going to customize some onesies with a #4, but not sure I have the time, energy, or materials for that now. She got rid of a lot of clothes from last time, I guess, so she needs small stuff. Not sure if I should go for mostly newborn or a few options for newborn through 6 months or so.

    I am disappointed that my friends are not going to participate in the potluck I wanted to do for Saturday evening's party. I'm still kind of feeling like I don't want to have the party, but I do want to see my friends and show off the new place.

    I generally get an outfit or two for each size range from newborn to 6 months. Or I make a blanket.
    Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, steak in one hand, chocolate in the other, yelling "Holy F***, What a Ride!"

    A shower for baby number 4??? That seems odd to me. Around here, it's tradition to only have a shower for baby number 1. It would have been handy to have a second shower when we got pregnant with Makenna b/c all we had was boy stuff. It got really expensive really quickly buying all new clothing and bedding, etc, for a girl.

    I think a mix of clothing from various age ranges is a good idea. Does she have a registry? Maybe there is some inexpensive baby gear she needs, like new clippers, bath towels, etc.

    Re: the gut stuff. I'm becoming more and more convinced that there's candida overgrowth going on in my gut as well. The itching has been unbearable most days, and the constant boiling gut feelings - I assume it's gas. I don't know how you have managed all this time to avoid prescriptions. I keep going back and forth in my mind about seeing my doctor for some Diflucan, but I'm afraid she'll say no b/c I don't have a vaginal yeast infection. I keep reading hoping you have found the secret combo and I can just duplicate your efforts.

    That's why it's a sprinkle, not a shower haha. No registry, it's not a big thing, she just needs some stuff to get this baby through winter. I think she's due around Halloween so I'm really tempted to get some skeleton stuff. If the baby is born after Halloween, not sure she'd use those clothes though. I thought maybe instead of clothes for the new baby, I'd get a shirt for each kid & put a number on each one (1-4) in different colors, but not sure if that's totally lame. This is supposed to be boy #3, if the ultrasound wasn't somehow incorrect, but she gave away the clothes from boy #1 (who is going to be 6 this year, born in December) & boy #2 (child #3) was born in July, so didn't need winter clothes in small sizes.

    Jenn, if you've got itching, go to the doc for a culture. They can tell on the spot if it's candida by checking under the microscope too. TBH, if it's not something you've struggled with before, I'd say get the Diflucan (or ask for two if you want one on my hand, my doc would sometimes let me have two to take another after 3 days) & then focus on repopulating your gut w/ good bacteria & good foods etc. You'll probably be okay. But oil of oregano, olive leaf extract, and/or a combination of those w/ caprylic acid (which is found in coconut oil, so make sure to use that) will help. Just starting the oil of oregano & caprylic acid yesterday, the itching is vastly reduced.

    I don't think this is something I've had issues with in the past. Just more recently - like the last couple of months or so. I am off early on Friday. I will see if I can make an appointment with her that afternoon. Appointment set for 2:45. I hope she doesn't dismiss my complaint or suggest I take stool softeners or whatever else for the digestive concerns. I'd rather she take me seriously and give me the antifungals so I can get on with life. Thanks for the suggestion, NW. I appreciate it.
