I fought off a cold last week. The key word there is "fought", as I only had symptoms for a few hours. Lately those things get much worse before they get better, so this was good news. I haven't come down with anything since the end of September's pneumonia. I tweaked my diet quite a lot, and upped my compliance.
When I realized I'd tweaked it in the Hunter direction, by eliminating dairy and adding the gatherer black dots like sweet potatoes and bananas (Hunter superfoods) I decided to re-do my measurements. I really thought I was a hunter and hoped I was a hunter in the beginning, and fear I may have overcorrected myself. Now whenever I measure my fingers, by any method, the ring fingers are longer. One is much longer, the other just a couple millimeters. My measurements are more consistent, about the same every time, whereas they were bouncing all over the place before, so I must have been doing something wrong. Now, unless my leg measurements were way off (making me an explorer), I'm measuring out as a hunter. Some people I measure are without doubt, as their measurements aren't even close to being equal, but I'm just well balanced, I guess
I'll give it a whirl, without buying a bunch of bulk stuff until I'm sure. I'll be going to the clinic for the first time in a couple weeks, then I'll be sure. It's wilder than I thought, now that I study the lists, as it's not really the same as O-nonsecretor in many many small ways. I need a good workout every day, whereas I'm only doing it 2 or 3 times a week now. I know that part applies to me, for balancing out stress. I've always taken to the hills by hiking or running when I was upset, to help put things back in perspective. I need to do more of that to avoid the everyday stress burnout.
