    So you went primal and saw results.

    i went straight to the store and bought 15 boxes of fruity pebbles and sat crying, surrounded by them, stuffing handfuls into my face
    beautiful
    yeah you are

    I mean there's so many ants in my eyes! And there are so many TVs, microwaves, radios... I think, I can't, I'm not 100% sure what we have here in stock.. I don't know because I can't see anything! Our prices, I hope, aren't too low!

    I went off the deep end, suddenly perfectly aware of every right, every wrong, and every truth in the universe. Unable to handle such beauty and truth, I was hauled off to a padded room in a maximum security mental hospital after attempting to burn down a jail. I now write this via speech to text because my overly helpful therapist bundled me into a self hug jacket. They're feeding me hospital food and the truth and beauty are going away. I can't bear being ordinary again; I can't. Kill me, please.

    did that hurt? do fruity pebbles fit into your facial orifices?

    how does one get them out of ones nose?

    Ukuleles are awesome! Once I got the food part down I started concentrating on fitness aspects, I too feel like I have to have a goal, my newest: I've recently decided to work towards becoming a Yoga Instructor!

    I never really had a "honeymoon" period. It's still always adapting, still finding new and exciting things. I'm still on the hunt for a cure for my anxiety and depression.

    Currently trying to figure out WTF to eat (for IBS-C).

    Still plodding down that road...

    I have made some really great strides in recovery from my illness!
    And lost weight... slowly.
    I even managed to start driving again after just over a year, though I never drive very far. I'm still a bit scared that something will "happen" though I haven't had a full on episode of that sort in a a while.

    My brain issue is likely related to a chemical issues in a article I recently read... it's complicated but it amounts to the fact that I need to get back to Low Carb.
    I was adding in more rice and carbs in... and reducing my medication at the same time... my illness got worse and I blamed the reduction in medication. Probably a bit prematurely...
    I now am doing another round after going back LC-VLC... I'm not sure I need full on Ketosis.
    But my brain issue has included problems that mimic partial seizures which point me in this direction.

    n=1
    That's how this works.

    I don't know if I ever had a "honeymoon" with Primal...
    It's always been just me, plodding down this road because, honestly... WTF else am I going to do?
    I cant eat salt... medical dietary restriction... that removes 90% of packaged foods right there.
    I know that in my shoes (i.e. crazy medical issues) a crap diet will just make it worse.
    I hope that this clean healthy diet is helping heal me... it seems to be working (with my own adjustments) as my doctors are surprised that I haven had some issues that other people typically have when taking the medications I'm on.
    You do what you can...
    And march on.

    Maybe this time next year there will be a "success" story about me?
    Maybe not. Because I might not have the 'six pack' that people consider a success...
    But if I get a REMISSION... f*k them all.
    “You have your way. I have my way. As for the right way, the correct way, and the only way, it does not exist.”

    And that's why I'm here eating HFLC Primal/Paleo.
