Fibro Feelings – Popcorn Please

What is Fibro Feelings?

The main highlight of this week was that I got to start reincorporating foods into my diet! For each food item you do a challenge that is basically eating that food 3 times a day and then seeing how you react. I passed my food challenges for rice, organic citrus fruits and organic chicken and will most likely pass on unsweetened peanut butter. We thought I had a bad reaction to corn and popcorn, but when I had The Helpful Hubby eat my leftover corn he immediately spit it out and said it was bad. As in spoiled/off/gone bad. Soo, now I’m wondering if I somehow got a bad bag of organic frozen corn. I’m really hoping I pass my brown rice bread (yeast) challenge so I can bring peanut butter and jelly sandwiches with me and leave the house for most of one day this weekend.

I also participated in a webinar about Personal Health Records (PHR) and attended a conference on on Living Well with Arthritis. Although I don’t have arthritis, I was especially drawn to the event by one Rheumatologist who spoke on chronic, invisible illness. If you follow me on Twitter you probably saw some of my live tweets from the event. I plan to write future posts on both PHRs and more about the conference.

At home I managed to get some laundry, straightening and gardening done as well as almost finish the book Breaking Thru the Fibro Fog: Scientific Proof Fibromyalgia is Real . My review on the book, by Kevin P. White, MD, PhD, will be coming very soon! I came up with a brilliant solution to our shoe rack always spilling our shoes back onto the floor. The Helpful Hubby and I have been aggravated by it for months and then one day it dawned on me to just turn the thing around! Now instead of the shoes angling down towards the open space they angle down into the wall, thus nothing falls! I’m a genius – ha! I think we were both shocked that we hadn’t thought of this simple solution weeks ago.

What is your favorite type of popcorn?


I really hope that I'm not sensitive to corn. I love popcorn!*

I was diagnosed with fibro in 2003, after losing my husband to long term illness Mar 02 and my near fatal motocycle accident in July 02. I want to thank you for your blogging, fighting and cannot wait to find your book.

My favorite popcorn is Movie Popcorn. I have been known to “go to the movies” just to buy the popcorn. Otherwise, my “Stir Crazy” popper with garlic olive oil and of course, salt!

Thank you for reading! It sounds like you had a rough couple of years there! Dr. Kevin White’s book is great and is now up for an international award. Garlic olive oil sounds like it would be really tasty on popcorn. I’m so excited that when I re-tested corn I had NO reactions! That means I had just purchased some bad frozen corn the first time.
