If the casual anthropology in the Explorer monograph is correct, some nonnies may have a genetic memory of loosing everything that they have.  Repeated expose to this "move on or die", would have the same effect as being an orphan or otherwise being abandoned.

Like a boxer with twitchy nerves after being hit in the head so many times, this will not go away just by leaving the ring.

Well, just got my secretor test back and I'm joining your ranks of noonie. It doesn't take much to start me worrying and than the anxious energy starts. And when my life gets too stressful and I can't get my worrying in check for a longer period my digestive system gets out of whack.

I don't like the phrase "nervous." I'm more high-strung and b!tchy when I'm tired, overwhelmed, or not feeling well. I have a VERY short fuse at times.

And at other times, I'm completely calm, in control, and can take everything in stride.

Too bad I can't vote for "inconsistent nonnie."

Can you explain this further, why would nonnies have this genetic memory?

I voted 'nervous' nonnie, because I think of myself as highly strung, as well as being ultra sensitive to the environment/energies and people around me.

I think innately we all have the potential to be calm, confident and able to deal appropriately with whatever life brings to us, but this ability can become compromised by trauma imprints-both passed on through parental and ancestral lineage, and from our own (especially very early) difficult/painful life experiences. Epigenetics in other words, though fixed genetic factors (such as blood type or secretor status) will also have a bearing on the way an individual tends to approach situations.

Goes without saying diet can strongly affect one's baseline stress threshold. I was more anxious pre-BT diet, particularly from wheat-which I think is so a very well documented effect  of it. Even consuming gluten traces can throw me into a 'manic' mood now.

My nervousness also is connected with colon health ie how much waste is backed up in the colon.  My ability to think clearly and organise myself is also affected.  I believe the large amounts of cow's milk, grains and sugar starting in childhood has weakened most of my glands/organs; as have things like antibiotics, and pharma medicines.  Folks, please take care of your intestinal health - Norman Walker's book, Colon Health - good book.  Recently, my system very sluggish and this has caused bleeding gums and swollen gums on right side of my mouth.  All organs/glands connected. Gut is the 'second brain' so also, mental stress and grief can affect our system/colon/other glands.

I voted for my husband...He is a nervous A nonnie.  But Ruthie describes this characteristic more
accurately...short fuse...irritability, appearing to be impatient and intolerant of frustrating situations.

And also as Ruthie describes, there are times, my husband can be very centered and calm. Feed him
and he's calm.   Talk to him when he's hungry or tired or being pulled in too many directions and he's not calm.  I also think he has ADD which gives him a lot of frustration when he's not focusing properly.
Much of this focus is corrected after he's eaten a big meal.  He seems to need to snack every few hours.
Might be blood sugar issues as well.

I would vote for inconsistent nonnie for my husband..

And for myself, I might be an inconsistent secretor.  If I've got too much to do or if I'm tired, I have no patience at all.  It's not that I'm nervous, when I've run out of energy, I'm done.....I'm simply needing to pull the plug on everything and be left alone.

Describes me to a "T". Especially the energy thing. Pacing myself has always been difficult--the energy is either there or not there so I start my day very early, and must be finished with any rigorous chores ASAP. Energy just wanes as the day progresses, and I won't have the strength to prepare dinner later if the prep work isn't done in advance. We no longer have the option to just order a pizza. Late evening social events are out of the question. Never understood "night owls".

My wife is also a nonnie, but doesn't suffer from any of this. She is, however, quite extraverted by comparison, and runs all day on an even keel. Have to wonder about that correlation.

I am another inconsistent nonnie.
I need to get the most demanding chores done early, never sure if I will run out of energy. I am reluctant to make many social commitments outside of my work day, because I easily get tired and run out of steam. I also have adrenal fatigue.
Knowing that my energy level and ability to concentrate is unpredictable, does make me feel "nervous"  and overwhelmed at times.




The sun, with all those planets around it and dependent on it, can still ripen a bunch of grapes as if it had nothing else in the universe to do.

That's how I am. When I take in toxins and don't detox I have a lot of internal anxiety that comes out as anger, esp on the road! Very on edge and hypervigilant at times but other times not.  I think it comes from anxiety.
