    I understand where you are coming from in your thread wanting to let other people know about what you are going through with CFS. When the docs tell you that you are just stressed here have some pills, but come back and pay me for another visit so that we can see how they are doing, b/c this is psychological it clearly cannot be related to your eating habits, but they are just a doctor. So instead of researching what you are asking they go with their best guess. I'm not saying doctors aren't smart, and needed in fact doctors have saved my life once or twice (gall bladder and appendix), but some of them are so stuck in CW and what they were taught instead of moving with science against the grain. Sometimes I think they are scared to tell people the truth because the truth hurts.
    Somebody, somewhere just may have to put down the Twinkie and step away to get better.

    One might ask: If you don't start with a blank canvas, how will you know what colors are on it?

    I think its great to re-visit your story once in a while - for just the reason you mentioned. We put our stories on these public forums in the hope of being able to touch other lives. When I see posts that mention sending my journal to someone with fibromyalgia it makes me feel like in some small way I might be making a difference in the life of someone else. So, never think you should apologize for telling again, or going a bit deeper with details.

    I also think you are spot on with the idea that the healing will take time - and I admire your patience in the process. I wish I had your patience with the weight loss! I want to be 135 next week! Not next summer! But, it will happen.

    CM, doctors have saved my life too (nasty ectopic pregnancy), and solved other problems (ovarian cyst, cancer of the thyroid, as well as some smaller ones). What they are good at, they are very good at. If it can be solved on an operating table, they are fantastic. And the occasional thing can be effectively addressed with drugs. I avoid them when I can, but you can bet I reach for Advil when I have a migraine, for example. But on the whole, I prefer getting to the root of things. It's like digging up dandelions. Sure, you can pull the leaves off, but they will come back. You've got to go deeper and get the root to end the problem.

    Tomi, I have no choice but to be patient. I can't really cut back too far in my food; I just don't have enough strength for it. And I can't increase my activity too much either. Slow and steady is the only option for me. Fortunately, it's also the one with the best track record. I do aim for faster, but I settle for something less because at least it is progress. And whether or not I reach my goal weight, every pound I lose - and keep off! - is a victory and an investment in my health.

    And it certainly doesn't hurt to have hubby telling me how good I looked that day, and that he found himself staring at me all the time... He's always been pretty good at making me feel beautiful, but his enthusiasm has gone up a few notches in that department. LOL!

    Yeah for sensitive, supportive, tender husbands! Mine is the same. Just a couple days ago he was telling me that he thinks I'm just darn cute from head to toe! I loved that!

    Yup. Got to give them credit where credit is due. As for the other side of the ledger, well, we'll keep that private. At least until I have myself attained perfection.

    Sorry, Ecks. I tried coffee with butter in it, before going out to buy expensive ingredients to do the Bulletproof Coffee properly and well, blech. I love coffee, I love butter, but the two of them together... I dumped it down the drain. I almost never dump things down the drain, but I just couldn't finish it. Mind you, I did use salted butter because that's what I had. Maybe I should try unsalted butter...

    Judge, as for bulletproof coffee, the butter should be unsalted (I tried salted once to, ick!!) and also it needs to be whipped up really good in the coffee. If it is not really well blended, it just looks like an oily layer sitting on top of the coffee. I also put a little bit of cinnamon and also vanilla extract in mine
