    Yes, but about 1/3 as much. Funny you would say that - because I was just about to come back to my journal and write that I should go back to drinking it daily. I felt better when I was drinking a bottle a day. My homebrew isn't making enough for that to happen. I'll buy a bottle on the way to work today.

    As for the gut today: I ate 3 eggs and a small burger patty for breakfast and I had to stop eating it because of the cramping and need to use the bathroom. Although the cramping or the diarrhea was not nearly as bad as last night.

    I seem to keep getting one step forward then fall 2 steps back on this quest to find what is making me so sick!

    1. the probiotic and daily kombucha was working wonders for about 8 weeks........... then it stopped.
    2. avoiding soy seems to work well - but isn't completely fixing the problem.
    3. tomato based dishes have always given me a tummy ache, but nothing like last night!

    I think right now - my gut is just not well enough to blame any one particular thing for causing the issues. I know once I have a good hard attack (for lack of a better word) things are messed up for about a week.

    For now --- I'm going to eat very bland foods. Nothing acidic, nothing processed (ketchup). And I'm going to go back to drinking kombucha daily. I'm still taking a daily probiotic, and have added a digestive enzyme as well.

    UGH......... am I every going to be well?

    EDIT: ate the other 1/2 of the burger patty and no ill effects. Perhaps I should do a bit more study on leaky gut?

    Good Grief I'm so freakin' SICK of researching my gut issues!!!!

    I'm still doing the strict primal......... but I've had a couple slight deviations and I know its killing my experiment. MUST BE 100% PURE PRIMAL.

    I'm also ditching a couple things that the SCD say are major gut irritants. I guess that puts me at the Virgin Diet again.

    I think you need to give your probiotics something to eat: starch. Maybe time to try a bit of potato with every meal that you drink Kombucha?

He's 27 and has never been in one He's a great guy - but his social anxiety has limited his social exposure. How do people find love and friendships when social settings produce deep anxiety? He works with all men - and so far no one has offered to "set him up" with anyone. You can't "make a life" for your kids.......... but gosh, its tough to watch when they struggle to make their own way. My heart hurts.
    Online dating. Get to know someone, talk to them for a long time, then meet. Take a xanax before you go so the anxiety of meeting someone new doesn't ruin it. Skype or Facetime together before they meet to get over that first time seeing each other anxiety. There are ways. He just needs to be willing to use them.

    Maybe you and Tomi need to introduce Tomi's son and your daughter.

    He's doing the online dating thing - but the 3 girls he's talking to (all very hot BTW!) are all in other states. I'm not sure if they will be planning on meeting at some point or not. Right now he's only talking via chat or text.

    That's a good idea to introduce the two.........

    Marcadav -- how old is your daughter? Is she in Salem/Keizer? My son is 27 (28 in April). He's a sweet guy..... just needs someone to bring him outside of his head and teach him how to have FUN!

    She'll be 24 on your birthday. She's in Portland.

    Our sons are the same age. Mine turns 28 in May.
