Us loves Guac, but us loves Salsa mas! As for the new ketchup, we use organic tomato paste instead: super tasty-sweet, no sugar, no additives, and it's so thick it spreads like peanut butter and won't run or drip!Russ wrote:kateg wrote: Oh, and I guess I should admit my one weakness - I eat copious amounts of guacamole (I make my own).... haven't you heard, it's the new ketchup .Russ

I am not sure if I am writing in the right place. If not, apologies. I am new here and wanted to introduce myself and greet everyone.
I am 40, recently got tested by a naturopath as part of trying to identify the cause of chronic pains (spasms that reoccur every couple of weeks; the pain starts deep in my head and then spreads throughout my body like a creeping plant and holds me in its grip for 24 hours, with a day or two of recovery when I am completely miserable).
Through all the testing, they found one allele of APoE-4.
The naturopath is treating me for issues in the gut and lowered immunity that are presumably causing those pain attacks along with anxiety, constipation, etc. After starting the treatment, which includes supplements and a strict diet plan (which is really just meats, fish and grassy vegetables, without any additives), I've lost some weight and no longer have chronic constipation, but I am still anxious and have those bouts of pain.
Welcome, Resilientk! You can post on any forum you want, or you can start a new post, for example on Our Stories. You have had a tough adulthood since turning 30 or so. Yet you have persevered through pain, and realized that the origin of the pain is associated with the end of a relationship. I too had panic attacks and pain at about your age. It took me a while to realize the source was also a toxic person (in my case, a sister with severe untreated mental health issues). Once I gave myself permission to not feel responsible to get her help she didn't want, and to focus instead on my own goals and family, I did much better. But the traces of those early "adverse events" leave "ghosts in the machine" sometimes. Although I don't have the training to offer such advice, I wonder if your your emotional pain and panic attacks have now become a periodic feedback loop that causes literal "deep pain."Resilientk wrote:Good Morning,

I have had chronic pains over the last ten years (they were not always in this current form) after a bad relationship where I started having panic attacks. The attacks morphed into general anxiety and then into physical pains.
If someone has a similar experience, I would love to hear your thoughts.
Be well. Be strong.
