Re: [GIWorld-Hepatitis] Carol
- Thanks Claudine...I needed that! Tact? No, my doc has none, but then
he's only 5' tall and probably weighs 90 pounds LOL.
I know you're right about the diet change. I just HAVE to bite the
bullet, starting tonight. I notice a difference in how I feel when I
eat a low fat diet. No-fat ice cream?? Where? What's it called? If
I can find it I'd suggest you all invest in stock.
I've read a lot lately about skim milk..it would be fine for this
household. My son needs to lose some weight too. I will switch, I
only use it for tea but that can add up.
I can't remember for sure what he said about inflammation, I think he
said there was little or none. My ALT level also dropped from my last
test, I think that Milk Thistle is helping. Maybe I haven't had hcv
for over 30 years, maybe it's been 4-5 years. I'll find out more
about that with the rest of the results.
Thanks a million for the encouragement. I will keep this email and
read it when I feel like cheating LOL. You are so right about a low
fat diet, it's better for us.

Anne, liking ourselves is one thing.....loving ourselves unconditionally is
another....but I'm still working on that one myself lol. It's terrible that we
put ourselves last but I think that's cuz we're the "strong ones".
ps. Where do I buy that tree oil?
Loving ourselves unconditionally is something that we can only do when we
recognize that our strength is a gift from God. We make the mistake of thinking
that when we put ourselves on our own list, we should feel guilty. If we
don't take care of ourselves, "we ain't agonna be here a-tall". :-)))
Here, you can buy tree oil at GNC, believe it or not. If it's not in stock
they will order it for you.
