Sounds like a wonderful plan, Lama
Thank you. Food is difficult enough without extra restrictions!All I can say is that the results from the allergy test are simply recommendations and not rules. It's up to you to figure out what works for you. If you've never had an issue with certain nuts or legumes before, I don't see why you need to stop eating them now.
Not really. I think it´s to do with my skin and gut improving. Which I don´t really know what caused it either, except possibly the extra greens.Wow, interesting that your food allergies can change so much. Do you know why that is?
That´s a definite possibility in my case as well! We´ll see how it goes...I really hope the calendar works out. I have tried the sticker reward thing myself. I generally don't stick with it, but it's definitely given me a boost when I've been trying to get out of a rut.
Yup. Need to be careful to keep it as a positive thing rather than as a way to put myself down though.I think it's a really good idea tracking good behaviors and how you are feeling to see what really works so you can stick with those things!
Do you remember when the change started, how long it took, and if the synthetic stuff came on right away or with a delay? I wouldn't be surprised if it was simply age-related (I could absolutely be in perimenopause at 41).This happened to me too. I used to be really allergic to just about everything I was tested for, but now hardly react to anything. The allergist I saw said it seems a switch was flipped & now it's the synthetic fragrances that have taken over instead. I used to be SO allergic to cats & flowers & dust &.......
The penny just dropped: the "advice" I got this time felt just as impersonal as the time I basically the exact opposite advice. I just don´t feel seen by these people. I´m used to having to find my own way through my allergies by now so if you´re not going to tailor your advice to me at all just shut your gob. And that´s the last I have to say about the topic.It's strange that the advice should have upset me so when the actual outcome was so positive.
Sometimes so good to just stay home and get all the chores done. i love days like that!No hiking today but my chore list is shrinking and I´m feeling good about it.
Yes, i can certainly see how that would be frustrating and irritating!the "advice" I got this time felt just as impersonal as the time I basically the exact opposite advice. I just don´t feel seen by these people.
I think it was a long, gradual change, LaMa. A few heavy exposures to fragrance triggered the intense reactions & my now strong sensitivities & of course the world's obsession with pushing out fragrance into the air at every opportunity. I really only noticed that I wasn't so reactive to natural triggers in the last couple of years.Do you remember when the change started, how long it took, and if the synthetic stuff came on right away or with a delay?
I have lovely fruit and protein pudding in the fridge as well as an assortment of crackers and I still go out to get binge fodder over grabbing what's there - even yesterday when it was Sunday so the nearest open store was further away and didn't even have the stuff I really wanted. So it really isn´t the ominous scarcity mentality we hear so much about these days. It´s wanting to sit on the couch and eat until I explode. Or until I´m numb. Or... until I no longer mind doing nothing? There´s something there but I can´t quite get at it yet. Whatever it is I need to do better while I figure it out because my weight this morning was back up to 81.3 kg and my bodyfat percentage was at 35.5% And that´s just not who I want to be, especially because I know exactly how slippery that slope gets. So I have to be strict with myself again, but this time without losing the compassion and kindness. Tall order, but let´s try! Also: I was going to find a massage therapist, wasn´t I? There, I just booked a massage for tomorrow afternoon.Hi LaMa, do you have healthier snack foods on hand, or would that just tempt you to eat them all up if they are in the house? I have to stop buying big tubs of gorgonzola cheese for the same reason as you with chocolate.
