    Hi Belinda,

    I am so thankful for your supportive comments and letting me know about the grieving process. It will never go away I can tell that because it is still super painful for me. It is just getting different in the way it is affecting my thoughts and life.

    I tried to start Keto with a metabolic doctor and the results for me were not good.I had a gastric by-pass in 1983 a total stomach stapling. I cannot do raw or frozen vegetables or fruits. I can do in very small quantities in a day. I really love 90% of veggies so this sucks! They give me horrible stomach pains and other bowel issues. i also have diverticulitis (spelling) When having a small portion of veggies raw or even frozen I can't even leave the house. I need to be able to be on the go (no pun intended) all the time with the life that we live. I want/wanted to do Keto I even have a few books on it too. Another thing is that I don't care too much for certain meats. I am in now way a vegetarian I do love other meats a lot! f

    If you have suggestions on how to get around those things I am all ears. He also had us try to give up sugar totally at one time. Yet didn't really tell us (Melissa and I ) how to go about it. He would just insist on asking us repeatedly if we were going to do it for sure or we would be wasting our time and his if we didn't commit. He was an internal medicine doc specializing in metoblic/weight loss issues. We just found him not to be for us after going to him several times. He was all about us reading this or that book that never talked about getting rid of the sugars, processed foods or even reducing our weight. They were about our relationships wither being the parent or goal setting towards being an independent woman for Melissa. It was just super frustrating to be taking the time and the drive to see him with no results except for feeling like total failures.

    I want/need something that is going to really work for me and be something that I can live everyday without causing me more issues.

    I know that you truly "get it' regarding more then losing our kids while they were still young.

    Hugs, Paula~

    Hi Belinda,

    Thank you for the well wishes on my feed. I too hope it is completely gone really soon. It won't be sadly it has already been a month now and it actually a little bit bigger to help the new tissue mesh into the sore. Helping it to eventually heal. Being diabetic I have to heal from the inside out. I have noticed something tonight. On the days that I am feeling emotional for whatever reason pain is a lot harder then the late evenings come and I realize I am still having a hard time grieving. Was pain harder when you were going through that early process?

    Thank you so much for always being there and answering my questions.
