    - bloating - 4.5mo morning,
    - skin = smoother than yesterday
    - bed 10:30-8, but was awake a while with a familiar pattern, although much reduced: spinning head + abdominal cramps. When it relented, I noticed I could feel my hip bones again, so it was happening with a reduction in bloating. So interesting. Wish I knew what was happening during these times.
    - definite pitting edema on shin. Gar. (will assume it's weekend related unless it doesn't disappear on its own by Sunday)
    - toward evening, started feeling slower, wanting to sit, and more irritated, and arms got bumpier (or sharper on the bumps). weird.

    Forgot to mention a few days ago I found myself thinking that if faced with a cookie cake right then, I could totally eat it. BUT - it was 6 and no dinner yet, 9hrs since last meal. Ate dinner, all thoughts gone. Win.

    Learning points for the day:

    - Dr. K: someone might have a problem with stomach acid production if she is has poor methylation.
    - enzymestuff.com:
    - animation of steps involved in production of stomach acid: Animation: Hydrochloric Acid Production... of the Stomach
    - higher level animation - taste buds, etc., send signal along VAGUS NERVE to stomach. Gastrin stimulates HCl production via bloodstream. Distension sends signal via VAGUS and continues to stimulate HCl & pepsin. When chyme contains lipds from fat digestion, or pH is <2, Hcl secretion stops. by stopping parasympathetic stimulation, local reflexes in gut wall neurons decrease secretion, and 3 local hormones travel to gastric glands (secretin, gastric inhibitory peptide, cholecystokinin).
    - ask doc for the Heidelburg test - swallow a capsule with a transmitter that reports pH before, during, and after drinking baking soda solution

    Results
    - energy 5-6/10; mood 6/10
    - bloating - 3.5mo morning, feeling much better before dinner than the last few days, back up after dinner,,
    - skin = bumpier int he evening. Pimples popped up yesterday - third eye again (but not as bad) + 2 on neck. Really annoying cheek bubble near front of mouth on side.
    - slept 10:45-7:30, woke feeling like it was okay to wake. Sleepy by 1pm.
    - No pitting edema. Pulse fine, although felt a bit weak briefly 10m after rising, probably from yesterday's forgotten Na & K.

    Big win today - I got to go to Mass! I stopped going to daily Mass 6 years ago ... same time I stopped working out and stopped doing housework and for the most part really scaled back on the homeschooling. Last week during Mass I got a sudden inspiration (without looking for it) as to how to get to Mass each day - take a different kid each day! That way, I never have all of them, but they all get to experience it here and there (daily Mass is a great grace, different from Sunday Mass).

    But I've been battling getting up earlyl enough, and trying for the last two weeks to get up before 8 so I could go. I finally have been able to get to bed early enough and rise early enough (even while needing a ridiculous 9hrs of sleep) and get breakfast going quickly enough that I'm done in time to go, and dd has been, too. I was so excited to break through this longstanding obstacle, and it hit me while there that each time I go, I'll offer it in thanksgiving for the renewed health I've been given. That's really what made it possible, and I can't wait to give thanks daily for this renewed gift.

    Sooooo, took oldest dd & went!

    Um ... I'm not sure what to blame this on, but ... I just played catch with my husband for the first time in about ten years (played on a softball team together until about 8 years ago, but stopped playing catch for fun well before), and ... caught. every. ball. (Well, until it was so dark out I couldn't see the ball.)

    That never happened, not even when I was 22 & super fit. Not in the height of our ball-playing years. I was always very mediocre, and still am, I'm sure, but I couldn't believe how accurately I was catching - and throwing - the ball.

    ?

    Feeling a little weird now that I'm back inside, kind of like my brain/body is a bit tired & spaced...? BUt really, it's been a great week that could have been eve nbetter were it not for the inadvertent poisoning on Saturday night.

    Not doing well. Yesterday evening I could feel the dull, don't-want-to-do-anything sensation coming on, and today it's in full force. Overwhelmed by the thought of all I have to do (which wasn't much, until I spent 24hrs not doing it), just inclined to sit in a chair and play typing games... want to sleep & cry, arms feel like lead.

    Bloating getting better while swelling & mood get worse, a week after exposure (to whatever?)...

    Hey MamaGrok,

    Sorry you are having a rough time. I don't have any answers for you, but I deal with the fluid retention as well. DH and I ate at our local Brazilian restaurant Friday night and the next day I was up 3 lbs and had "gained" 1 cm in my upper thighs. It's better today but not gone. Not sure what happened but it's frustrating. Hang in there....you will heal and get to the point where this won't happen anymore.

    Amazing ... apparently yesterday morning *was* die-off. This morning I feel great, my wrist dropped 2/16" (very significant for a wrist), all measurements are back to normal or close. I lost two pounds overnight. One week to detox from the dinner, and now I can keep truckin'! (I hope!)
