Food & Well-Being Archive


Posted October 30, 2008 By LifeIsChange

After I quit smoking in 1996, I barely wrote anything for almost a complete year.  I’d always associated smoking with writing, and it took me a long time to reestablish new habits that felt natural to me.  One of those habits was Totino’s Pizza Rolls.  Just imagining the taste of them inspired me to write. […]

Sixth Folder, Sixth Picture

Posted November 2, 2008 By LifeIsChange

I was randomly browsing blogs instead of going to bed last night, like I should have, and I found a post someone made after seeing another blogger do the same thing.  It said to open your MyPictures, then go to the sixth folder and post the sixth picture. Hmm.  Mine is kind of weird and […]

Palpitations, Migraines, and Fatigue . . . Oh My!

Posted December 22, 2008 By LifeIsChange

Because symptoms like depression, fatigue, and migraines are associated with every health issue I deal with, when one or more of those symptoms becomes worse, I tend to look to one of those issues to blame.  Do I also have IBS-like symptoms accompanied by gas and bloating and intestinal pain?  I must have been glutened. […]

Results . . . and Results

Posted January 12, 2009 By LifeIsChange

I saw my nurse practitioner at my doctor’s office last Monday morning to go over the results of the Holter monitor and echo cardiogram, and she said it is mild MVP, which I already knew was not a big deal as long as it’s mild.  I’m supposed to make an appointment to see the cardiologist, […]

A Funeral For My Lost Hair

Posted March 12, 2009 By LifeIsChange

I got my hair cut today.   Short.  I wore it short for most of my life because I have a lot of hair and it’s very curly and woolly and difficult to take care of when it’s long, and most people through the years have said I look better (and younger) with short hair. […]

Companies With Exemplary Labeling Practices

Posted March 24, 2009 By LifeIsChange

I was leaving a comment on Hormones & Highchairs‘ blog (my apologies to mamachun for leaving such a long comment) and I mentioned that several companies have very good labeling policies with regard to allergen ingredients. I did a search to find a list of those companies and I found a thread on the celiac.com forums, […]

The Weight Thing

Posted July 8, 2009 By LifeIsChange

Following Kerro’s description of food-issue-related topics (the Food Thing, the Weight Thing, and the Body Image Thing), I thought I’d  write an entry about the Weight Thing.  I’ll discuss the Body Image Thing at a future date, as that may be the most difficult to write or talk about. My therapist and I talked about […]

Like Dominoes

Posted September 13, 2009 By LifeIsChange

I truly didn’t believe there could be anyone out there who was this perfectly suited for me.  I mean, what were the chances of that?  In every relationship, there are compatibilities and there are differences.  There are the things that work out easily and the obstacles to overcome.  In each of my past relationships, there were […]

More About Structure, And Another Gluten Warning

Posted October 30, 2009 By LifeIsChange

As hesitant as I was to attempt to add structure to my life, it’s turning out to not be as difficult as I feared it would be.  I think the key is to add new things one at a time, with some time in between to adjust.  Well, there seem to be several keys, but […]

More Mystery Glutenings Solved, And A New Challenge

Posted January 28, 2010 By LifeIsChange

Update October 2016: The link below to Triumph Dining’s Gluten-Free Grocery Guide leads to the current edition, which may be a bit different from the way I described the 3rd edition, but any differences only make it more comprehensive and up-to-date! I don’t know if anything has changed regarding the Publix brand products since the […]

Beware of Gluten-Carrying Strangers

Posted March 5, 2010 By LifeIsChange

Ah, geez.  I couldn’t figure out, on Wednesday, why I was so scattered and unable to focus at work.  I slept enough the night before.  I took my ADD medication, just as I do every day.  I didn’t feel particularly overly hormonal.  The Fibro was apparently the reason my neck was hurting (more about the […]

Strange Horoscope

Posted March 10, 2010 By LifeIsChange

I don’t read my horoscope very often, especially the ones that show up on just about every home page option list that only take the sun sign into account.  I mean, come on, every Gemini out there is not going to have the exact same kind of day. But today, as I was revamping my […]

Yay! I can have my V-8 again (and more)!

Posted August 25, 2010 By LifeIsChange

Back in January, I wrote this post when SS and I got the Triumph Dining Grocery Guide, and we’d seen V-8 listed with a symbol that indicates that procedures are in place, to avoid cross-contamination, but there are shared facilities or equipment.  Because, at the time, I was afraid to consume anything that had even […]

Gluten Ataxia

Posted April 12, 2011 By LifeIsChange

SS found a fascinating article and emailed it to me this morning.  It’s brought on one of those “Wow!” reactions for me. We’ve discussed, many times, some problems I have with balance and gait that are kind of upsetting to me.  Up to now, I’ve chalked them up as being symptoms of my ADD/Executive Function […]

Going Off Of Yaz / Beyaz

Posted July 19, 2011 By LifeIsChange

I realized it’s been a while, again, since I posted, so I think it’s time for a catch-up. The biggest thing that has been on my radar recently has been going off of Yaz (which is now called Beyaz). Ickiness warning for anyone who finds discussion of women’s health issues off-putting: the rest of this […]
