Our bank made a mistake. Actually they made a mistake two years ago, which caused another mistake last year, which my husband caught today. It took all morning to get it straightened out.
In the moment of relief following the last phone call, I said, "No matter how much we want to trust these guys; no matter how much expertise they have; we are the ones who really care about our finances. In the end we're the ones who are responsible."
Then at almost the same moment we said, "It's like our health."
No matter how much you want to trust your health care providers; no matter how much expertise your doctor has; you are the one who really cares about your health. You have to take responsibility for yourself.
Sometimes the Blood Type Diet is challenging; sometimes it's hard, but I follow it because it is clearly working for me. It works better than the advice my doctor gives; it works better than the drugs the pharmaceutical companies sell, and it works better than any other nutritional program I have tried.
I don't want a world where another person or a company or (worst of all) the government seizes responsibility for my health. I'm the one who cares, and I show how much I care by what I choose to eat.
The stress of the morning left my shoulders tight and a knot in my stomach. After my husband went back to work, I mixed some concentrated cherry juice with club soda. Then because of the knot in my stomach I added a teaspoon of ginger juice. It tasted like cherry ginger ale - delicious.
