the books you must have if you are combatting candida

Posted on February 9, 2007. Filed under: Books, Candida, Candida Recipes, Gluten Free Recipes, Recipes, The Dyingness |

If you have candida you need to be sure you’re prepared to learn more about it and to combat it effectively. Some books that I’ve found particularly useful and helpful are:

Complete Candida Yeast Guidebook, Revised 2nd Edition: Everything You Need to Know About Prevention, Treatment & Diet

and a very good cookbook and info source is:

Candida Control Cookbook

for more recipe options (trust me, you’ll need lots for diversity’s sake):

Overcoming Candida: The Ultimate Cookery Guide

and (even though it’s from the UK…)

Beat Candida Through Diet

a great book you can use and substitute ingredients if you can’t eat sugar or dairy is a gluten free cookbook. The one I find to be the most useful (and yummy!) is:

The 125 Best Gluten-Free Recipes

I found that these books were by far the most useful resources I had in combating candida. It’s a very aggressive yeast growth and valid information is hard to come by. Check these out and you’ll be amazed at how much they reveal and how useful it will be.

can you always tell when you snap out of a phase?

Posted on February 9, 2007. Filed under: The boy(s) |

For the past few months I’ve been somewhat complaining about how infrequently Brian and I get to see one another. I mean, we usually see each other for about an hour one night a week and then for a day on the weekend, so technically it could be worse. But it just wasn’t feeling like much for a while there — not like we were a “real” couple doing real couply things together.

I then, finally, reasoned last week that if I couldn’t see him often now, I’d hopefully be able to see him a lot more one undetermined day in the future and then that would make right now better.

So we talked about it (again) the other night, and I suddenly realized something at his prompting — he argued that if we aren’t happy now and if we don’t fix this time thing now in some way then there may not be a later. I realized that I had assumed we couldn’t fix right now and so at least, if there was a change at some point then it would be okay. I realized that this was ridiculous and of course he was right AND that I had created some huge situation in my head for absolutely no reason.

Damn. And I had always said I would never be this girfriendy.

It feels as though something has completely disappeared and that I can return, for now at least, to my former normal independent self of getting together whenever and not into a girlfriendy freak!

today would have been

Posted on February 9, 2007. Filed under: Family, The boy(s) |

Today would have been my grandmother’s birthday, so I’m a little disheartened today…

I remember one of her birthdays, about 5 years ago…Brian and I went to New York to visit a friend of his and I completely forgot that it was her birthday, so I didn’t call. Wow, I was so upset that night in the sketchy microtel with mirrors all over the walls (yes, sketchy). I just cried and thought about how she would never have forgotten my birthday and that I was such a horrible grandchild, but she really didn’t mind.

Happy birthday!
