Not All Bad

21 days have come and gone. I wish I could say I stuck with the food cleanse 100%, but that would be a lie. 

I was very diligent with it for the first week or so, and I did reap some nice benefits. I lost some weight and I felt really good. I haven't eaten that much healthy food in a few years. but no change in my itching or my rash, so I slowly began to add foods like dairy, sugar, and alcohol back into my diet. I have managed to break myself free of most processed foods again, which I hope to continue. I feel so much better when I don't eat crap. 

As for the rash, I guess I will just wait now and see what the patch testing shows in July.

The Looking Glass

It's Day 17. 

I'm still all messed up from what I'm calling the "nut incident". These bumps won't be going away for a while. I stayed clear for several days, so I reintroduced a couple of foods. I guess I got too certain of myself and introduced to many things at once. So now I can't be sure what caused the fresh ones. I itch all the time and I still look like a monster.

On another subject, my children are in the middle of a wonderful vacation at Kitty's house in South Florida. These days without them given me a peek into what life will be like when they move away in a few short years. I don't like it at all. I'm not quite certain what will become of me at that time. But this is not making me happy.
