"Nick, My heart goes out to you.  It's hard to know what to say when we see this much difficulty.  I want to be able to tell you "It will get better".  And I sincerely hope it does.  But without being there, and…"

My Body is a Cage

There is a song out there called My Body is a Cage. I can’t recall who wrote it but as far as performing the song goes Peter Gabriel’s version is what I find myself listening to most often.For me my body has become a cage. One I’ve been trying to escape from for a while. Progress is slow then it seems things take a turn and go back downhill. In my fight to fix myself I have a lot going against me in that my lungs don’t function very well. This doesn’t mean I give up. I just have to go at a slow…See More

"My step father used to say that I thought too deeply about things. There is some truth in what he said, even into the idea that I'm atheist today. Perhaps you think too deeply also on things, especially things that never happened. For example,…"

4 AM

4 AM comes again I lie here in bed and look out the window. I stare at the brightest star I can see like I do most nights. I often avoid sleep to avoid dreaming but not sleeping is even worse for me. Being awake I guide my own thoughts is more of a pain than any dream I could have.I reflect on long talks that never happened. On events that could be and every outcome there could be to them. I reflect on events in my life and what I should have done, what I could have done to make things come out…See More

"There are lots of labs around that do tests, but there isn't yet a scientifically supported test for these delayed food allergies. Some of the tests, like blood IgG+IgA for foods, may work, but for now it's hard to tell what they…"

" Also, my doctor said you do not need to be eating a gluten loaded diet for the tests to work. He said if you have consumed anything in the last 3 months or so that you are allergic to, it will show up. See this link."

Carolyn commented on Nick Walker's blog post The truth I've hidden from myself.
"Also casein and non-gluten grains can cross-react with gluten, so it may be necessary to also eliminate other foods. Yes, I am cross reactive to casein and coffee. I was not coffee drinker so that was no great loss, but I do miss dairy. But I…"

The truth I've hidden from myself.

I am fat, I know I am and even if I didn’t know I was people tell me often enough when I am in public. I have always been bigger, but I was at least active. I went to the gym and took part in the martial arts for years.

I’ve been trying to lose weight again and I have been but I haven’t lost anything in a month now. I fear I am going about to gain it all back which would just send me into depression worse than I already deal with on a daily basis.

Depression has always been an…

Dreaming because a nightmare.

Lately I have been having a lot of dreams that feel real.  Every part of it seems like it is really happening only to wake up a few different times with my pillow covered in drool and my face buried in it.  …
