  1. Recently I’ve switched to a plant based diet but I can’t tolerate tofu thankfully I’ve found many yummy, creamy, dairy free foods (they’re mostly cashew based - sunflower seeds work too if you want to go nut free) My mom has dairy, soy, and egg allergies and I’ve encouraged her to just eat plant based and add in the meat when she wants it. There are so many ideas on Instagram. I follow #vegan and #plant based for recipes and ideas of what to eat. I especially like Maxlamana and fitgreenmind as they show 30 second videos preparing awesome dishes. My favorite cookbooks are Oh She
  2. My grandpa with Parkinson’s has recommended using a whole body vibration exercise machine. He says that by using it consistently he has seen improvements in his balance and his ability to walk. I’m so sorry you are going through this challenge.
  3. I used to roll my eyes at herbs, supplements, oils and such. Now when something's amiss I turn to those thing first and then turn to conventional meds when stronger treatment is needed. I can trace my change to two circumstances. The first was when an elderly friend's arthritis medication destroyed her liver and she had to go on dialysis indefinitely. She went from active and spunky to very frail. I remember feeling so frustrated that the very thing she used to help her quality of life actually stole from it at the back end. Like robbing Peter to pay Paul. I came to the conclusion that m
  4. It could be that your prolactin levels are off (the hormone responsible for lactation). Those were some of my symptoms when I was diagnosed with hyperprolactinemia. Luckily the condition is easily regulated with meds.
  5. Baby seals get my vote with their big eyed gaze against all that fluffiness.
  6. I was bullied not so much at school but at home and there are so many repercussions because of it. It's hard to grapple with the feelings of worthlessness, anxiety, anger, and grief while trying to function as a contributing adult. Guided meditation has helped me work through a lot of garbage. I like Mark Waldman as he is a neuroscientist and guides using studies and research and a minimum amount of woo. I also like Jonathan Parker but be aware he uses a maximum amount of woo. I find autobiographies to be therapeutic. I love reading how others overcome and triumph over their struggle
  7. I am so so sorry Quill. What a heart breaking tragedy. No wonder why there are trust issues. Sometimes I wonder if people with faith can suffer more than those without. I watched a documentary on campus rapes where they interviewed women who were raped and the universities tried to cover it up. The women who were interviewed were obviously traumatized and angry, but the two women who were religious were shattered. One commited suicided and one could barely talk or function in life. If was as if these women had to deal with both the efffects of the rape and the feelings of betrayal from God. Th
  8. Huh, I can think of three times in my life where God has shielded me from feelings of rage and/or despair. Three times. Every other time I was required to work through my feelings of anger, hate, contempt, frustration, futility, etc. Knowing that I loved God and that He loved me didn't make loving my neighbor any easier. But It does make loving my neighbor a priority. So I work at it and ask for help and study and try. Rarely do I have that effusive boundless feeling of God's love. Mostly I go through my day with the gentle and mild assurance that I am not walking this life alone.
  9. People love and perceive love imperfectly. Love doesn't have to be perfect to be present.
  10. I get a little confused when people say that they don't rely on their feelings because feelings can't be trusted. Isn't everything about us unreliable? Our minds are fragile and easily tricked, our senses are also easily deceived. Humans can't get a true reliable grasp on anything because everything about us is imperfect. But we do what we can and use what we have. So how do I get a sense of God's love? Feelings- Sometimes the feeling of God's love does wash over me. It's a warm and consuming love. Mental- spending time in Gods word, pondering truths, principles, ideas, and go
  11. Strawberry cream cheese over here! And I ate it for breakfast.

    Eve

    I wanted to add that I consider the commandment to honor thy mother and thy father to include our first parents. As the "mother of all living" Eve deserves our thanks and honor.
