Just getting into the elder class and becoming comfy with my infirmities. My mother who died at age 95, used to say quite often “old age isn’t for sissies, ya gotta be strong to put up with it!” She was right!
john I think the next step is to start speaking that you WILL have clear skin. Heck a year is great for great living. Now comes the affirmations and you are totally right. It is a choice, but for some the time factor seems hard to do. It was not for me. I wanted healing so badly I could taste it. Also at one point I felt like my ears would fall off with the oozing thick psoriasis there and the massive crust on my head. Felt like my brain was being squashed. Now, after a few decades I know that there is healing but it did take time and it was a choice to go this route for me.
Rita I grew up on leftovers from the night before. We did have fresh cows milk but I was never a fan. Man we had left over broad beans that had been sauteed in tomatoes. OMG! Yum! Lot's of leftover goulashes too. Seriously delicious and healthy. I was a vegetarian then. On the way to the bus stop we'd grab an apple off the unsprayed trees. Healthy not weird. No cereal was in our house ever. Just not what we had.
Sarah I'm with you. Strive and keep trying. What if things could get better? They did for everyone that I can see on this site that has been diligent in whatever route they went. It's not even hard once you practice. I think I heard somewhere that it takes 30 days to start to create a new habit, just to start. Why not. Only one life to live so do the best we can to live it to the fullest.
Leftover foods for breakfast is my style too Rita! I don't really distinguish breakfast from other meals now really! This morning... beef patties with shredded lettuce, roasted squash and kale. Haha! But it's nice to be honest! It's not out of a box ☺️ It's really tough John with the diet choices isn't it. Some go vegan. Some go gluten-free. Some go dairy-free. Some go pale-o. Some go autoimmune protocol. Some go mediterranean. Some go Whole 30. Some go low FODMAP. Some go low histamine. Strawberries are high histamine... this is one reason why some people don't eat them. It's hard to know which one of the eating plans could help you, if any! We have to take the plunge, and try (and try and try....) This is all we can do! Strive. And that's what us Flaymers are great at... Striving for better ☺️
I wish that I had been able to know how many people are out there living with the same thing, and just how much I am not alone. I had no idea of it until I found Flaym. Not a clue! And to think there are so many of us around the world... If I'd known that 21 years ago I may have felt less alone with it.
hello emma,yesdiet or lifestyle changes will help in the long term and you may notice the itch wont be as much in time, 2 to 3 litres of bottled or filtered water a day will help a lot, its what i do ,eat lots of fresh veggies (not potatoes) everyday, i do raw and cooked,12 to 14 portions of veg a day with either chicken or fresh fish,not shell fish,processed meats,pork,beef are not good,packet items,jars,tin foods are bad as they have additives and stabilisers,caffeine is bad and i cut out all dairy .wheat and gluten,all sauces including mayo,ketchups,gravys and no to dressings,virgin olive oil is great aswell as olives,sweets,cakes etc are loaded with sugar and other rubbish,citrus fruits are bad and i have been affected by grapes not long ago,i have melon,necterines,peaches,pears and bananas though these have sugar so, i try to limit it,salads are good with some raw veg thrown in diced up, i have no tomatoes,alcahol can be a trigger,smoking,sweetners are very bad too,i gradually cut a lot of stuff out gradually over a 2 month period as itwas easier to do that though,i didgo cold turkey with sugar but, can make you feel rough so its best to cut it down gradually in my opinion,it is a choice though to make changes i wish you well
