Oh my Lopisheep, sounds like you have just been way too stressed (easy to allow I know when things are not working the way they 'should'!) about the whole eating thing. I do find myself thinking that for now you need time to reset before trying a 'new' anything diet wise! I wonder if you have some kind of toxicity that is lurking undercover somewhere and giving you these horrid hassles. Please let us know how you get along and what is happening in your life!!! I can understand not wanting to have others opinions shoved down your throat - none of us likes that!!
I too cannot imagine getting three cats and two dogs into one carrier - however, glad it worked out for you all! My dog would just love for her and the chickens to all be in the same crate - I wouldn't have to worry about the lack of space except for the section where her belly was (it would be stuffed to bursting with 7 little chickens!)
Going to watch a movie with DH for a change - before the hectic week gets started again. I ate pretty well, no idea exactly what but ok. I did eat this morning though which didn't feel good ... DH and kids needed breakfast and I was still removing biltong from the dehydrator and nibbled on some of that. I know that it is not the end of the world but I was annoyed with myself as I know that I wasn't hungry yet and just ate because I couldn't wait for a little biltong later. I find I lose my focus if I eat like that
I have been putting the magnesium gel on my left arm and left heel for a couple of days now ... certainly seems to have helped a little. Will keep on putting it on. Felt the beginnings of the crampy feeling I get in my inner thigh - rubbed some on and it didn't trouble me for the whole night. Seems I do need the stuff...
Got to go - sleep well all and please keep in touch Pam/ Lopisheep!
