When you learn to listen to your body, it will tell you what foods you should and shouldn't eat.

So I am sitting here watching TV and doing my sewing. All of a sudden a huge wave of sadness just washes over me. It stays for about five minutes and then it is gone. Do any of you ever have this happen?

I have no idea why this happens. I don't know what triggers it. It is not depression. I am not the type of person to get depressed. The odd thing is that it usually comes when I am doing something I enjoy doing like embroidery. Weird.

That sort of thing used to happen to me, but hasn't happened in a long time. I thought of it as free floating moods that just land on someone. I used to get elation too, once in a while.

I'm waiting for a visual migraine (no pain) to go away. I can't really get any work done when I can't see straight.

Princess, I was about to write much the same thing. I have to read labels so much and am so picky, asking really tough questions at restaurants and stores.

SB, I have tried to cook/eat within DH and my restrictions, but I now realize I was resenting it that I couldn't bake/decorate a cake when he was around, etc. I finally figured out this weekend that until I get my own cravings down I need to avoid what one or both of us can't have and embrace alternative cooking completely. I know some day when it becomes second nature I will be able to cook regular for others again. I am retired from catering and only do cakes as people ask for them.

I know food is your profession and you can't stop it, but I agree about the vendor shows - maybe you can send someone in your place for awhile.

TL, you have my thoughts and prayers. Any kind of migraine is no fun. I hope you get relief soon. {{{{{{{{{{{{{Taxlady}}}}}}}}}}}}}

Only been up a short time as I was up WAY late last night. Just listening to the birds bicker over whose turn it is on the feeder and listening to our kitten chirp at the birds when they creep too close to the window. Pretty little birds out there right now, rosy finches, red breasted nuthatch, black capped chickadees and a couple of blue jays. The blue jays can boss everyone but the chickadees and the nuthatch. Too funny watching the itty bitty birds run off the huge jays.

Thanks. I am not the only one. Those feelings of elation have also visited me. I like your explanation of free floating moods. Who knows what is in the universe just floating around? After all the government has those giant dishes out in the desert hoping to find some sort of life from space.

I know that "am I safe to drive feeling" all to well. But at least you have something exciting to look forward to!
