Hey hon, I'm so glad you're getting some relief from the journalling. I think the combination of the open confession, plus the organisation of thoughts, plus the feedback / support from readers makes it extremely therapeutic. I joke sometimes that my journal is like a magic box, where I pour in my neurosis and they get transmuted

I also recommend trying sparkling water, coconut water and taking a magnesium supp. One time I really wanted to binge on cashew nuts, took a mg supp, and the urge was gone. It's a complicated thing, and it's not always psychological.
Hugs to you <3
"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."
