The Healing Project

The Healing Project

I suffer from a condition called the Internet Research Rabbit Hole (IRRH). It’s something that often pops up in conjunction with an autoimmune diagnosis, especially when mainstream medical treatment has failed to produce encouraging results. It presents initially as the realization that yes, DIET DOES MATTER, and goes quickly south from there. Common symptoms include:… Continue reading The Healing Project

The Background Story: Part 4

If you haven’t checked out Part 1, Part 2, or Part 3, now’s your chance to go read my oversharing about my health history. Some posts have throwback pics. Yikes. I’m continuing on from the gluten-free years into the WTF-do-I-eat years.

An alternative spelling, derived from the Old French, would be C-H-O-C-O-L-A-T-E. Synonym: motivation. I feel like I can’t function without it.

Too legit, too legit to quit

There has been a block to my blogging. So instead of working on the posts I have in the works (They do exist!), I’m sitting here trying to figure out exactly what’s in my way, what’s creating this roadblock-of-movie-car-chase-proportions. You know, one of those epic car chases that includes someone knocking over a fruit stand.… Continue reading Too legit, too legit to quit
