    I assumed you had done your research and were confident - my suggestion was only to rule out anything else that might be going along with and could cause complications. I'm looking forward to hearing good reports on his behavior

    I really hope you can narrow down any foods that are contributing to the condition.

    And I am still in awe at how much stuff you get done.

    Mind you, way back when, my friends used to call me Superwoman. Until Superwoman crashed...

    I got selected to be the lead for the party planning for a holiday party for work... 200 people... YAY! We're forming a "party planning committee" and I get to lead it... awesome... I planned my wedding for 300 people, so this should be relatively easy, except I'll be evaluated on it, so hopefully it goes smoothly. My yearly evaluation will occur in December too... so this could be a great thing or it could be a complete disaster. lol

    I'm sure it'll be a success overall... I just worry about little details b/c I'm a big picture kind of person, not a details kind of person. (I learned that in college... lol)

    Update on ads on blog... for those of you who would be so kind as to click a few ads for me, you won't find any ads at this time. Right now, my ad publisher id on the blog does not match the ad publisher id on my adsense account. what this essentially means is that my blog is trying to link to an ad account that no longer exists/works/whathaveyou and I cannot figure out how to change it. I have tried to research it via the help screens, but everything has me going in circles. I've clicked the link that says "change pub id" but it's taking me to a dead webpage. And of course, there is no number or email address to call for customer support... So frustrating... Tash, maybe this is something you can help me with?? I'd be willing to give you my password to get it fixed. I am beyond frustrated after two days of fighting this. *sigh*

    Anyhow, bottom line, there are no ads to click on at this time.

    PM-ing you.

    On Primal matters: I'm at the PTSD section in The Mood Cure right now and thought of you. GABA is the recommended amino acid for low cortisol/exhausted adrenals. I wonder if Tyrosine and GABA might help you in the mornings, if you still feel like you are struggling to get going. You haven't talked about your sleep schedule and how you've been doing getting up earlier lately, but I remembered that you'd been worried about low cortisol.

    Well, I got the ad thing figured out simply by stumbling around and trying things out. I clicked on "use different adsense account" and "logged in" and magically that fixed it. Apparently, my best guess anyway, is that I was logged in with my old adsense account. whatever. Ads are there. Tested it with my phone. Click away friends. The extra money will come in handy. Haven't decided what I'll do with it yet, but the options are paying down debt, socking it away in an emergency fund, or splitting it half and half between my kids' college funds.

    Tash, I haven't talked about sleep lately. I'm still struggling to break the habit of the snooze button. I have read that gaba and tyrosine are good for the conditions I have been diagnosed with, but money is tight so I haven't been able to experiment. Primal Body Primal Mind spends a LOT of time talking about supplements to take for different mental health disorders.

    I killed the box of rice chex yesterday. Pretty sad... i killed a whole box of cereal in 2 days... rather, two evenings. But, it's gone now. Considering doing a Whole30 starting Monday to see if I can kill the sugar cravings... but not really feeling up to the challenge. maybe I'll just take the l-glutamine and use that to kill the cravings. that was talked about in PBPM as well, and I happen to have a bottle of it at home that I bought and then never used.

    Maybe instead of a whole30, I'll do no sugar til Thanksgiving... I REALLY need to stop eating sugary crap. it's getting me no where.

    At the present moment, I am very upset with Brady's kindergarten teacher. After discussing Brady's diet with her last week and agreeing upon an approach to tackling his behavior with diet, she went and gave him a gluten filled muffin yesterday for snack when she had grapes, string cheese and fruit snacks available to provide. Brady told me this yesterday saying there wasn't enough time left in their day to visit the cafeteria for snack. I asked him after he fell asleep and he told me the same thing. This morning I asked him again, and he told me the same. If he was lying to me, his story wouldn't be the same each time. He's 5... he doesn't lie very well.

    So, I emailed the teacher. It's a Teacher Inservice Day today so I don't know if I'll hear back from her or not. I want to talk to the principal, but since I haven't talked to the teacher yet, I am going to hold back. I wonder if getting the principal and school nurse involved would benefit or not.

    My thinking is that she misunderstood my instructions. At one time I had told her that when kids bring special snacks on their birthdays (like cupcakes, cookies, etc) he is allowed to partake b/c I don't want him to feel left out of the celebration. This week, there was a birthday. The child brought popcorn with M&Ms as the treat. She did not allow him to participate in this snack (even though it is gluten free). Yesterday, apparently said child brought muffins (each kid has to bring snack for a week). Maybe she misunderstood my instructions thinking that the muffin would be ok b/c it was "homemade". I think I'm going to have to be a bit clearer in my instruction. So maybe I'm unfairly chastizing her. I sent her an email explaining that I am keeping a detailed log of what he's eating and need to know if he had a muffin yesterday or the snack I provided to him.

    I picked up a box of Betty Crocker gluten free cake mix, gluten free brownie mix, and gluten free cookies. I will be making one of them this weekend for Brady to take to school. Probably the cookies. My mom is making him gluten-free rice krispie jack-o-lanterns. We didn't realize until last night that rice krispies contain gluten - by way of malt flavor. *sigh* So I picked up a box of gluten free rice krispies so she could make my kids their own batch.

    Mom must be doing some reading b/c she said that if she's got the choice of a gluten-free product over a regular product, she's been grabbing the gluten free version. But, she works at Subway, so... *shrug* baby steps.

    I have a friend with an autistic son who has been showing significant improvements since he has been eating a whole foods diet and specific supplements. She said he's communicating, although crudely, with her now. And he allows her to hug and cuddle him when before he would fight and scream and refuse to be touched. Amazing progress! She is going to share a list of snacks and lunch ideas that she provides for him when he's at school.

    Sleep was messed up last night. Brady has started coming to our bed at night again. He came in twice last night. I took him back to his bed each time. I hope this pattern doesn't continue. I rather enjoyed my nights of sleeping without kids.

    MamaGrok mentions ODD in the GAPS thread here. Thought you might find it interesting.

    Ah, kindergarten teachers... One of mine disallowed apple sauce because of the sugar content (I was sending sugar-free) but allowed granola bars. Nice lady, but seriously. I hope you have better luck with yours.

    And I'm sure your Christmas party will go very well.
