My Dear Friend,
I just read your last post. I am so sorry that you have had a minor setback. This is a fantastic post for all of us that have this illness.
It is so so so important that you read all the labels of your food and drink intake.
As careful and strict that Leslie had been and at 95 %; well just one small mistake can be a three month set back. At least you figured it out right away and threw that cap in the trash can!!
I have never been a fan of any of the sugar substitutes.
I just drink my plain boring water and them I know I am safe.
This is such a great example on how "diet" is critical to us getting well.
Leslie this will all pass and you will be right back to your finish line.
I am praying for you sister!
It’s been a long time since I’ve written anything in my thread of my journey with this horrific disease.
Today I would like to share that I have not had a horrible night in over 9 moths or so. But last night was a night of horror for me.
My left eye which gave me the most problem suddenly began to bother me and it literally swell under my eyelid which have never happened to me before and of course I became very concerned as i sat during my meditation time this morning.
During my time of prayer I began to ask God what was going on and what happened to me last night because I have been doing to well on the healing journey in the 95 percentile rate of this disease and I got an ah moment as the Holy Spirit began to speak to me. He told me to go and check the new stevia I discovered and began to use over 3wks ago called “trivia”, so I ran to the cabinet and grabbed the bottle and began to google it and discovered it’s a No No to use. Why? It contains an ingredient called “erythritol” which is a chemical compound sugar alcohol. Oh my God! I was so disappointed and ran to my cell phone and dialed Mel.
As I began to explain what happened and why he told me our dear Karen (the red head from Texas) wrote a post about it.
Now this error of not reading the ingredients of something I thought was good have now hindered my progress of healing. What a bummer! I was so upset with myself for the moment but know it’s nothing I can do but wait until it completely run it’s course to exit out of my system. Ugh!!!
So what does that mean? Make sure you read all labels and don’t use anything without searching the site for approved food items and buy a coaching session from Mel to get you back on the right track!
Mel’s response was ‘oh my’ :( which mean I may be around a tad bit longer than expected :(.
What’s my plan? I have not gone off my diet but will now eliminate coffee again and will not use any stevia of any kind at ALL until my system is purged of the error I made.
Please please please don’t try anything new unless you check it with Mel and the forum and the search engine.
Please excuse the typos
