Thanks Gray. I know for me it's 100% hormonal now. Every time I get my period I crash like this. I've been trying to apply loads of progesterone, but I guess it only partially worked this time. I'm glad you're feeling better!

It's it funny how we feel we have to invalidate any kind of spiritual feelings we have? I'm sure this was just what you needed at the right time. For me the experience was a little different... My meds kicked in and suddenly my taste buds changed. I have a theory that what you eat reflects your inner physiology (and vica versa), which is why different personalities are drawn to different foods.
"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."
