And now for something completely different...

Last week, I saw my doctor. I found out that I have anti-bodies attacking my system. From my lungs, skin, lady bits, thyroid, everything is being attacked. The anti-bodies are from an illness I had when I was younger, one I thought was in remission. To get the anti-bodies, which I have named Borris, to die, my thyroid has to become normal range again. Also during that visit. I realized just how allergic I am to MSG. my heart speeds up I feel twitchy. Everything is in hyperdrive and yet it slows down to a maddening slow speed. I've also been trying to avoid HFCS, which has been very hard.
I decided then and there, with borris attacking me, my heart beating so hard it felt it might burst, I would start making everything I eat from scratch. I've been doing this since sunday. so far, I've made white bread, dill bread, which is omg good, I've made potato salad (barefoot contessa, best ever), egg salad, snickerdoodle blondies (from baking bites, very yummy) and I'm about to go out and make bluth mini muffins, which is just banana and chocolate chips. I've eaten so much fruit, chicken and veggies. Already, I feel better. I'm using my inhaler less, I have more energy, I'm eating a lot less.
this is going to be hard, but I'm sure I can do it. I think.
