Alright, everybody.  Hold your breath....

I'm about to give out some very personal health information that can only be found here on this site, unless you frequent my bathroom.  Please don't sue me for "pushing" such private affairs on you the reader, as you the reader are actually choosing to be the reader....

Are you ready?  What you're about to read may shock some of you, but others of you may share my findings and be able to offer understanding and support....

Again, just so that you understand,  I am disclosing this secret known only to my immediate family, and my children only know if they've bothered to pay attention....

I have a pink--

a very pink--

a bright pink--














TOOTHBRUSH.  Ah ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha.

Especially since that person was dead.



Doesn't matter if you are dead or alive, your privacy should still be respected. When I die, I don't want any old Tom, Dick or Harry to be able to call up and find out my medical history.

I like it when they err on the side of privacy.

That said, I often wonder if I could track down my dad's medical records (all his doctors are probably dead or retired), would they tell me, his daughter, his blood type? I think it is a horse of a different color if it is the children asking for health info...but in any event, I understand when they won't divulge something, personally.

I recently met a guy who's cholesterol was through the roof, in the 600 range! He wanted to avoid meds at all costs and got onto a very-low-carb food plan. His numbers went down to below 200! All within 6 weeks! All he did was cut out the carbs. He was slim to begin with, so I would've never guessed he has high cholesterol. I learned that cholesterol has nothing to do with appearance.

You mention sandwich and bread and I think those are the culprits!

I eat no wheat, no starches, and consume tons of fats! At least two jars of almond butter a week! And my cholesterol is on the low end. Not to compare....but perhaps you can fill up with fats...if I were you I'd RUN from the bread....

Diffy, when you say carbs, do you really mean grains? I think this is a common misconception, because there are carbs in fruits and veggies, too; and those are beneficial to many.



It is not my responsibility to convince anyone of anything.
