Couples, Kids, and Time

Fibromyalgia and Sex Can Be A Pain In The Neck...and back and shoulders Okay, hears that warning I talked about WAY back when at the beginning of this blog.  Keep your kids away from this one because it's about the subject I like to talk about most, sex. Spending time with your mate can be a hard thing to master when it comes to kids and responsibility.  There's the young ones asking for everything from a feeding to a story, to the eldest person of 90 from your family asking for a light to be turned on while you are on the phone with your hubby.  Life is not a bag of chips, heck it's not even a Slim Jim at times, but that doesn't mean you can't spice things up.

After starting my journal for a week, I started to notice a sensitivity to sugar substitutes and MSG. After eliminating those from my diet, I felt better. I started small in the beginning by eliminating it for a week or two and then went back, but I consumed much less of it. I'm sensitive to many, many things, but I've found that eating organic, chemical-free food is best for me. My flares are very few and far between now and I truly believe that eliminating the fake foods I consumed helped. This radio program is a great show to listen to. It's very informative on food sensitivities and actually discusses a lot of what I've already said. I've never done an MRT. It was not even heard of when I was diagnosed. I took t
