    Whine, whine, whine:
    I feel a bit sickly. I woke up last night feeling pressure all throughout my abdomen, but I could tell I wasn't bloated. I felt like I was going to vomit. That is part of why I slept so restlessly. Sometime before my alarm went off, my stomach growled and I was very hungry, but when I got up, I felt sick again. I just had some OJ this morning with my supplements and felt okay for several hours.

    I had a banana and started to feel sick again. I ate part of a delicious apple (no idea what kind, from my grandmother) and it didn't help. I have some cottage cheese, but just thinking about it makes me feel sick. Even water seems like too much, but there's a faint hunger under all of this.

    I'm tired of these random bouts of feeling shitty. Eating well, consistently, will help, but it seems to only be an extent. I guess without having slept well consistently for several months, I can't really rule anything out as a probable cause.

    Breaking Up with Paleo | Melissa McEwen on food anthropology, economics, and culture

    Just thinking.

    I just don't want my joints to hurt (avoiding PUFAs outside of meat seems to be really key for this). I just want to poop comfortably, regularly. I want the anxiety and depression to keep at bay.

    I don't have answers. I am still looking. Primal/paleo are not the answer. I need to find my own definitions.

    Nameless forgive me for barging in. Have you tried gelatin for joints? I have been eating/drinking 2-4 tbs a day. I felt like reducing my meat consumption. I have chronic lower back and neck pain. I am shocked, but it's gone from a level 5 pain to a level 2.

    Melissa's article is when I started making my own turn…

    …then I posted my own

    Do what you know works for you and only you, Tasha! And be kind and gentle to yourself. So what if paleo/primal didn't work for you?

    On your deathbed, are you going to say: "SHIT. I shouldn't have eaten all that sugar and bread my whole life. Fuck!"

    Or are you going to say "I'm so glad I quit my orthorexia, brought loving-kindness into my life towards my self and others, and spent quality time with those I love".

    What's it gonna be, sister?

    Do not allow yourself to become wrapped up in a food 'lifestyle'. That is ego, and you are not that.

    Oh yes, I use collagen hydrosylate instead because it's easier. But if I have something made in industrial oils, I usually have joint pain shortly after, so I know that is the key culprit (inflammatory response). I wish I could get my husband to give the collagen a try.

    I was actually reading your blog today and went over to Go Kaleo for not the first time. I feel like I did not read your last post in the blog fully last time I read it. I have been remarking more and more to Hulky lately that I wish I could just "eat normally". I keep looking for the "right way", but I have to give that up and find my own way.

    And Kaleo talks about eating enough. That is a HUGE problem for me. I need to eat MORE.

    That sick feeling is still lingering and was a lot worse last night. I had bacon & eggs for dinner and now think that might've been too much fat? I had terrible heartburn, including acid burps. This could all be from the antibiotics, but the sick feelings don't coincide with when I'm taking the pills (morning and evening). Hulky is having neck pain & not sleeping well, so he's going to try to see a doc today and I'm staying home to call the nurse's line and coddle my burning esophagus. Yeah, I woke up to heartburn this morning.

    Silver lining: we got some raw apple cider (as in, not pasteurized) while in Maine and it is SO GOOD. I really hope I can pick some raw milk up from the natural market up there sometime. It wasn't open by the time we left on Sunday.

    Argh. Apparently stomach pain is a side effect of this antibiotic. They told me to eat bland food and avoid fatty foods. If fatty foods respond poorly with metronidazole, that explains why the heartburn and such was so horrifically awful last night (after eggs & sausage).

    I have no idea what to eat. I guess "bland foods" would mean rice, but that will also mean constipation. OH JOY I LOVE MY GUT.

    If you are having indigestion, burps, bloating, acid reflux regularly then it's time to scale back the fat in a huge way.

    I would start with small amounts of rice. Well cooked potatoes too.

    Hulky needs to get himself a buckwheat pillow! Mine changed my life. For realz.

    Amber at GoKaleo is an awesome, AWESOME woman. And yes, once I read her Adrenal Fatigue or Starvation? article I realized that wifey and I were probably consuming around 1500 calories daily, TOPS. I started a Matt Stone like eating program back in April and put on a bunch of weight. It has been a struggle: not fitting in to favourite jeans, throwing out things I absolutely cannot fit into. None of my fall coats fit My hips expanded the most! But it is what it is. And I can't hate my body or myself for it.

    This is not a regular problem, only since I started the antibiotic for BV. I really just want to make a (low fat) smoothie, but I don't know if fruit is safe on metronidazole either. Maybe I can get some light coconut milk and make some rice pudding. My mood plummeting also coincides with the antibiotic. I only have a couple days left on it, but I don't know how to get through it like this. I feel like a mess. Okay, so the heartburn is periodic, but not ever at this intensity (prohibiting sleep). I think I need to up carbs and dial back on fat. If only goat milk came in more varieties.

    I realize that slimness is not a goal. If I have to gain weight to retain sanity and regular (schedule-wise) gut function, that is absolutely fine and I will embrace those curves. Maybe I'll even grow boobs, who knows.

    Hulky is going to the chiropractor today. I agree that a buckwheat pillow would be great for him. I don't use one at all and that usually eliminates any neck issues I have. I think we both slept weird and he said he woke up, turned his head, and something popped. I got him to agree to take a few tablespoons of collagen hydrosylate a day, so maybe that will help reduce his risk of tearing things all the time =\. It made my knee stop cracking, anyway.

    I used a buckwheat pillow for a while, but it eventually stopped helping. What works for me now is a feather pillow. I don't think you can buy one like this one, though, because it's been around long enough that the poof is gone and it's pretty flat and squishy. It's like a softer, lighter, flatter buckwheat pillow.
    Honestly, what helped my joints the most was reducing inflammation. Each person has different things that cause inflammation though, and it's trial and error. There are some common ones, but they may not be his inflammation triggers.
    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!"
