    I think it's actually anxiety at work that's causing issues, not air purity. If I'm able to calm down and relax, the elephant goes away. How do I relax when I'm worried about my job being yanked from beneath me? They've made no hints about it, quite the opposite. More and more I'm getting well projects and drainage reports, in addition to the multiphase project I'm already on. But the lizard brain keeps popping up reminding me that Arcadis gave no warning either, and how would I like to be unemployed again. My performance review was mediocre (boss never gives the highest ranking and has extremely high expectations.) I'm not the last one in, or the crappiest engineering employee. That anxiety of "perfection or utter failure (I still have trouble seeing the in between area) hits me always and the tiniest snag reads like utter failure to my lizard brain, which in turn spits out anxiety, which creates mistakes, a vicious cycle. I need to break it and see the grey between perfect and perfect fail.

    Does GABA work for you? It can be too sedating for me, but maybe there is something similar that could help. A tea, perhaps? It sounds like you are awesome at your job and I have been there with the needless anxiety and it blows.

    I hope you feel better soon - on all counts. Anxiety sucks.

    GABA is hit or miss. I'm trying a blend with l-theanine, rhodiola, ashwaganda, holy basil, and eleuthtro. It seems to help, so far. I'm definitely less anxious and can concentrate.
    In other news, today starts a new attempt at being grainless. I've been fairly lax since the diagnosis. I'm down to 128, even with mild sulfite bloat and grain squish.

    Sounds like a good blend. I tried L-Theanine alone in the past with no noticeable benefits, but I think it works better with other things. I tried eleuthero root recently and got a nice energy boost as well as anxiety relief. I'm curious about the others, but that's an experiment for another time.

    In an effort to quantify the culprits:
    SAFE
    jambalaya- rice, onion, tomato, garlic, peppers, homemade chix broth, HEB garlic sausage, sanderson farms chix, and Kiolbasa ____ sausage
    veggies- lettuce, raw organic tom, org broc, raw green beans, org plum
    Not Safe

    wine
    wine vinegar
    farmed shellfish
    salmon

    Questionable
    brown sugar- in homemade banana bread by SIL
    green curry- possible mild reaction from canned coconut milk and canned bamboo shoots, or possibly GERD reaction
    pasta
    dairy
    black tea- anxiety at work?

    Holy shit, cross connection. I just noticed that my anxiety over work begins not long after I take my pills, which include D3 and fish oil gel caps. Mild sulphite poisoning can present as anxiety. It's quite possible that the same pills I take to keep from tweaking out are helping cause it. Maybe there's a liquid version of both worth something at the store. Carlson's for the fish oil, maybe.

    I'm curious. What brand of laundry detergent did you find that was sulfite free?

    All- Free and Clear is the one I use. Reviews on the hippie brand that didn't have it said that it doesn't clean well and makes clothing feel like there's a film left on it if used in hard water.

    I tried that one before, but Tristan still broke out from it. Going to making my own seems to be the only thing that works for her.
