Quoted from marjorie
I need some advice here... I just received my midterm grade and I did not do so well.However, this was during a stressful time and I did not eat much meat at all and I am wondering if any o' s have felt better mentally when they incorporate meat back in their diet. I am starting to question alot of things about how smart I am, but I know something is lacking in my diet.... could it be just that I need more food overall or is it the meat?

I am so tired of analyzing and then being stressed.



Marjorie, what are you eating?  Protein is critical for O's (I actually think everyone needs protein but just in different forms) but it doesn't always need to be red meat.  I love fish and eat a lot of it, but I do eat red meat (beef and lamb mostly that I buy from a local, grass fed farm) and poultry (free range from the same farm).  Eggs are good too!  You should consider, if you are not already doing so, having protein for your first meal and some source of protein for every meal.  I eat a lot of walnuts as well.

Hi
I started incorporting more protein back in, slowly... now I am at least eating more fish and some poultry. Still have not gotten into eating red meat, but working on it.

Thanks... I need all the encouragement I can get

Being here is invaluable, but not enough. We need ALL the Doctors. I needed them for a very small cancer spot-I could never feel!!! Please do your mammograms! Doing so saved me from cancer later on. I am grateful! Thanks for learning from my experience! I was lucky! I wish the same for YOU!

There was a post on the FS thread that Ruthie's OK, no power but has gas stove and heat.  She went to the library and posted on FB.
I don't think anyone has heard from Chloe though.  Hope she's OK.

Not heard from Chloe, but this is what she said Oct 29:

Quoted Text
Our power originates from a vast line of above ground wiring that is
predominantly attached to huge utility poles. This above ground infrastructure has been in place for decades.

Those poles for the most part are made from wood....Given we're surrounded by huge old trees, all it takes is for one tree to hit one power line and bring it down and it suddenly affects thousands of people at once.....If this happens many places along the grid or if if a transformer is hit by lightening or needs to be replaced, it's not like the power company has one sitting around for installation.....It's always a slow process....If we lose power, we call an #800 where a recording asks us to put in our phone number so they can look up our address...The recording usually tells us if there are known power outages in our area or if this is the first one reported....I'm always one of the first people to call and report because it's not like anyone in the power company knows when we slip off the grid.  It's not like they're able to monitor us to see who lost power...Once reported that we've lost power, they send someone to assess the damage we've incurred....and then in slow motion,  and in order of what it takes to fix the problem, they will first restore the people who live in the largest communities.....give the largest group of people possible their power back.  Given we're only 1,000 people who live off a 3 mile main road, and given we are at the very end of the grid, we are the very last group of people who get our power back.  It's frustrating for us living this way, but this is the way it all works....

Some areas of our county never lose power.  It's just because we are so rural and have so many
huge trees that can fall on utility wires.
