    When making any stock, as it is simmering, skin the foam off the top with a strainer. Let the broth cook down enough, then put in a container in the b refrigerator, the next day the fat will be on top and you can take it off and throw it out. I just saw a different post about saving fat for cooking?????

    If the bones are from grass fed or foraged animals, keep the fat for cooking for sure!!!!

    That one person has nothing to do with the issue. The person that was impacted is fine and holds no ill will. You have admitted your part ( something others may not have) and repeatedly taken responsibility and apologized for it.

    Please let it go. The jackass didn't even know who they were complaining about. He was just being an ass trying to get attention/stir the pot. Don't give him any space in your head or the power to get you to second guess your worth.

    All of us here that know you, know you are kind, considerate as well as giving. The fact that you are a volunteer mod speaks volumes to your character.

    :/

    I know it's not your fault. I can't say much more about it since both of you are my friends...

    I think I know who you're talking about this time. (I understand that reference!) Some people just like pulling others down to their level. It makes them feel less bad about themselves. Don't let them get to you! It doesn't appear that Turq has.

    Look up Tea Tree Therapy brand tea tree oil suppositories for the itching issues that the gynecologist couldn't find a root for and see if you think they could help. I had chronic issues and they put a stop to it. Now, if I start to feel anything out of the ordinary, I use them for a few nights and am good. I also sometimes use vitamin e suppositories to help with dryness.

    Namelesswonder, I am never really around anymore and just happened to wander into TQP's thread, thanks to my obsession with all things gelatin. I don't know all of the details of what went on and they're honestly irrelevant. You apparently made a mistake for which you fully owned up and apologized. You've got character all over the place and have always been one of the most kind, gracious, helpful posters here. You are always one of the first to offer up advice, support and encouragement to anyone who comes along in need of it. Don't worry a bit about any of the negativity being thrown your way, because word on the street here is that you are "good people" with a great deal of integrity and high standards regarding the way you treat others. Every board could use more posters like you. Hold your head up high, my dear. You have every reason to!

    Whew, a lot to respond to, not going to try. My bran is still "fuzzy" lately. I am having what people describe as brain fog. I don't know when this started, but I noticed it a couple of weeks ago in a therapy session.

    I think it might have been from getting sick? I stayed home today to rest. Lots of sinus congestion. Bit of a sore throat. The light cough I've had for the past couple of weeks is gone though.

    Thank you to everyone for your kind words. You are all far wiser than I. I feel foolish for getting so upset about this, but embarrassment is my nemesis, if it were a person.

    Re: tallow etc. I will reheat & try to separate. I didn't get much "broth" from the bones. What I did get is HIGHLY gelatinous, so I'll probably water it down when I use it. The bones were not from grass-fed cows, so...not sure I'll keep the tallow.

    Re: tea tree oil suppositories. They're on my to-try list! I should have tried them ages ago. Right now, I'm using boric acid through Thursday night, then a day break until my appointment on Saturday. So far, it is helpful and not as irritating as last time. I am still going to ask for hormone testing since manual examination has never shown anything in the ways of a cause for all this.

    Gut - I don't think bananas are my friend. I think they bloat me. That's a bummer. Starting my day off with potato starch, supplements, and a carrot seems to work really well for my gut. I wonder if our hotel room in London will have a fridge so I can buy some carrots while we're there haha. A lunch of potatoes (with butter & salt) seems to be working well too. The only problem with the morning plan is that I really do best for the rest of the day when I eat a full meal in the morning.

    I increased my potato starch to 1T twice a day from 1/2 tsp twice a day. I still don't really have gas. It feels like any gas gets trapped. I wonder if I should go see that guy for visceral manipulation again. I'm having very vivid dreams from the potato starch. I had a sex-related dream two nights ago, which I took for a very good sign that libido might be returning again... I increased it when Pebbles67 said she when from 1 tsp to 1 tbsp with no issues. Why is my gut so slow?

    I'm thinking about seeing that gut doctor again for more testing for bacterial stuff. I still want to do stool testing. I also want him to put it in my charts that I have IBS-C so I can have the official diagnosis. To be honest, I may push for some kind of medication to treat the constipation so I don't have to worry about it over the honeymoon, but I have a few other supplements on the back burner that I may try. I'm running out of time (we leave March 7).

    Brain - Brain fog seems better today. Surprising because I slept poorly last night, no idea why. I had vivid dreams again, bordering on nightmare-quality. I woke up early but tried to snooze because I felt so demotivated to get out of bed. I ended up mentally berating myself out of bed before the second alarm could go off, but only 3 minutes before.

    Body - I'm kind of winging it with my workout schedule w/ the pull-up bar and kettlebell stuff. I was able to hang on the bar for 10 secs (up from 5) Saturday night and yesterday! I need to increase my reps all around. I forgot how quickly my body adapts when I'm just starting something. I hope I have this kind of progress when I start bicycling again.

    I am donating blood on Saturday morning. I am nervous because I nearly passed out last time. Friday, I am going to try and surpass my usual hydration goals and I'll be up early on Saturday to have a smoothie or something before the appointment. A couple of hours after that, I have an appointment with my gyn (no blood will be taken then if she does approve the hormone testing, will do that next week when I'm ovulating), then we're going out for sushi with friends.
