    [QUOTE=ombat;1168124]I haven't, but am I mistaken or doesn't it present with some sort of rash from the bite?

    The rash doesn't always present and/or it may be in an area where you don't see it. Your scalp, for instance. If you have symptoms, it wouldn't hurt to rule out.

    I noticed an instant improvement from taking the Vitex Literally within a few hours of taking it my energy soared, and it hasn't come back down.

    I'm glad you're getting your hormones checked! Finally, someone is listening to me

    QOTD: I have a bit of an odd view/relationship with sex (or at least that's what people tell me). Any effort to explain that view is met with quizzical and uncomfortable looks, so I thought I was unusual in my views… But then I read this article: I Used To Give Out Sex Like Gold Star Stickers (And I’m Glad I Did) | Thought Catalog on TC which put it well - specifically the line, " I don’t sleep with Isaac because I am sexually attracted to him, but because I adore him as a friend and I want to be closer." That is usually the situation I m in. Anyway, I think we've talked about this in another thread, but what do you think about sex? Does it have to be love? Would you rather it be with a complete stranger than someone you are close (but not romantically involved) with
    I went through a phase during the EAT when I kept waking up congested. I thought I was getting a cold, but it never developed. Sooo... I don't know!

    I think it's great that you have such a relaxed attitude to sex. It doesn't need to be especially reserved for two people who are besotted with each other: some of the best sex can happen with the excitement of a new partner, or a stranger. I've never had sex with a friend (get worried about being smothered with love) but if you enjoy it then why not?

    Unfortunately I seem to have developed huge issues about sex in the last few years. My past caught up with me, and I can't seem to get out of this mental rut and trust anyone.
    "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."

    - Coffee + gelatin + sugar + cocoa!
    I only like coffee with sugar and this whole combo sounds AWESOME. I can try this at work sometime (Keurig machine) if I bring in some cocoa powder

    - little coffee as vessel for a lump of sugar.
    This made me laugh.

    Congestion: Could be nighttime allergies? Some things do bloom at night. But if it's very recent, I don't know. I'm still hoping sorting out my gut will reduce my seasonal allergies .

    Sex: I've had friends & encountered people with that kind of attitude towards sex. I think it can be totally healthy, it's all about how YOU feel about it, right? Sex was made into a huge foreign/scary concept for me growing up, since it was never discussed. I had to base my understandings of it on my lack of sex drive (which made me fear sex for a while before I ever had it) and movies. I had sex with a friend (I can't say once but it was over the course of a summer). It was not a healthy relationship for many reasons and I don't think I could ever speak to him again with the way things ended. I had sex with a friend a couple of times, for him it was how you described it, but I realized after that I could not be so casual (how I see it, anyway) about sex. It's too emotional for me because of how vulnerable it makes me feel. Plus, to overshare even more, I couldn't orgasm for years b/c of SSRIs and birth control (probably mostly those anyway), so I never wanted to trust someone else with that responsibility unless we were otherwise involved.

    Q for you fun journal-readers: a co-worker brought in a bunch of smoked meats for lunch, which I will definitely have (infused with beers & whatnot, but I am beyond caring). He also brought in a bag of gummy bears! There's probably more corn syrup than gelatin in them but...should I have some? :-p

    I was.

    Nothing gets me through PMS quite like a good feel.

    Thank you for your responses, guys! Knowing now that the subject may bring up some uncomfortable feelings for you, I appreciate you being open. I will respond later today after mah travels.

    Re: congestion, it's definitely not new, but I think it might be due to mold (it's very moldy in the Pac Northwest) and/or pets, when I'm around them. Yoyo, were you eating anything during EAT that was new to you or that you are not eating now?

    Name, yes! On both! The good lord (of corn syrup) knows that I do at times partake in the stuff
    Is it weird in here, or is it just me?

    My mold allergies are beastly in the summer, with the rain on and off, plus our AC accumulating it. It can only get so clean .

    I have been nibbling on ze gummy bears .

    Re the sex thing: My attitude towards sex is very casual. And I have had sex with friends. I've had sex with one of my best friends in the world, and the sex has brought us closer. But at a different point in my life, I had sex with another friend, and things sort of broke down. (This is because it wasn't just sex--we ended up in a weird non-relationship relationship where it wasn't clear if we were just friends or something more. But our friendship has recovered from it.) I also had sex with another friend--we weren't close friends and only had sex once, but I think we have a stronger connection now because of it (although I haven't seen him in person for years--he's one of those who moves around a lot and has been living abroad for the past couple years). But I don't habitually have sex with friends. There are some friends whom I can't imagine having sex with--it would almost be like having sex with a brother--just...wrong.

    During the height of EAT I was eating meat twice / three times a day, which is really unusual for me... And now that I think of it, I was eating meat twice a day in CA when I was there, and also started waking up with a blocked nose!

    Re. the sex question: Only in a committed relationship for me. But then I used to be really uptight about most things, not just that. I really have nothing against casual sex.
