Thank you... you know, that's good to read. I often see people who move and suddenly their lives slot into place, which is why I believe environment is so crucial to happiness...

Well, with co-dependent relationships, the person who is being taken advantage of often wants it on an unconscious level, because it can make them feel important / special / needed / loved. That's kind of moving beyond survival into personal responsibility, so I don't know if they went so deep in rehab? Certainly they never did when I was in therapy - I had to learn a lot of this stuff myself.

"I think the basic anti-aging diet is also the best diet for prevention and treatment of diabetes, scleroderma, and the various "connective tissue diseases." This would emphasize high protein, low unsaturated fats, low iron, and high antioxidant consumption, with a moderate or low starch consumption.
In practice, this means that a major part of the diet should be milk, cheese, eggs, shellfish, fruits and coconut oil, with vitamin E and salt as the safest supplements."
