A good day, pre-detox and books

I have been reading 3 books. I tend to read a few at a time, so I don't lose interest. When I get tired of one I pick up the next. One book was mailed to me from an online friend in California.

"The China Study" by T. Colin Campbell

"The Messengers: A True Story of Angelic Presence and the Return to the Age of Miracles" by Julia Ingram

Stopping Inflammation: Relieving the Cause of Degenerative Diseases" by Nancy, Ph.D. Appleton

I have still been doing a pre-detox and assume very soon I can start. I think I have allowed by body enough time to get use to all the fiber I have been adding. It seems to now be handling it with little issue at all.

I hardly hear from my parents anymore and I have stopped calling. After reaching out repeatedly for help and being rejected (that is the very short story of it all) I sent a letter saying I can't do it anymore. That I love them both, but after years of issues I can not continue to do it. That anytime they want to talk to me I am here. Feel free to call and I am not mad. The letter of course said a lot more than that. I sent it in mid May. Some of you I shared that letter with. I do not have the energy to continue to argue with them... I don't feel well enough. I have never been selfish. By that I mean I have always helped everyone in my life at the expense of myself. I am not willing to do that anymore. At least right now till I can get help or help myself.

On a good note when my mother did call she told me that her physical therapy is done with. She still has a lot of bowel issues from the chemo she did. So far the scans keep coming back clear, so no cancer is seen. This of course will have to be watched, but so far so good. I am happy about that.

Today it is nice out. Nice for me anyway. The temp. is only 65 degrees and I have the windows open. I don't have to run the a/c and beside my normally fast heart rate it is not excessive from the heat. I slept well too. My stomach was queasy for a few hours after I woke up, but nothing too big to deal with compared to how bad I can get. So it is a good day.

Yay Brian!
Nice to grab a good day in there once in awhile when we can. Enjoy and i hope it continues in that direction.

This week has been a bit mixed for me. So, i was appreciative for the e-mail chat the other night. Not because of what i was bothered about but just domestic issues and such.
But things are good for now.

As for you, Mister. I'm really hoping things continue to be on an upswing for you.
