I've posted in a couple of other threads about how happy I am to be on the BTD. The increased energy just feeds into every area of my life. I am continually amazed at how early I wake up and how rested I am, improved mental clarity, focus, how many new ideas I've had for fabric art projects, I'm singing again, playing music all day long and harmonizing like crazy, and just how darned good I feel.

Now, the real surprise to me is attitude. I screwed up rather finely at work a week ago ( one darned typo took 31 hours to fix!). But, as I worked through the day and night to fix the mess I'd created, not ONCE did I kick myself for doing something stupid, dumb, etc. No negative head talk at all. Let me tell you - prior to starting BTD I would have spent a lot of that day kicking myself for my incompetence. But with my new BTD attitude, I laughed a lot about such a silly mistake.

A further example of attitude change for the better. I own and ride a horse. I started riding as an adult and have struggled with confidence issues forever. My fellow isn't dangerous at all, but does have a lovely duck and spin move when he's startled. Doesn't usually throw me, but it unsettles me. Now, prior to BTD there would be days that nothing would get me on my horse's back - just an irrational, fetal, can't explain it, can't therapy my way out of it fear of riding. (not fear of the horse, but the what if, completely irrational numbing can't do it miasma). Especially when I needed to ride alone, which, since I live alone, I have to do frequently.

After being on BTD for almost 4 weeks. The irrational, can't explain it, can't talk myself out of it, can't ride fear is GONE. Completely GONE. I am speechless about this development. It's incredible. This mental weight that I've been dragging around for years is gone.

Has anyone else experienced a change like this? Am I nuts? If so, I'll stay nuts, ok!

I'm on my knees singing the BTD praises. Bursting out of my skin I feel so alive again!

Of course you're nuts, you're from Maine!! Everybody up there is nuts. It's how you all survive the long winters.

Mind you, I can't say much......

<------------------- I live next door. But folks here already know I'm cwazy!

Awesome change for the better. I had some similar experiences when I started at the beginning of this year. No more depression, no more being tired all the time, no more looking at the world with such negativity. It's a beautiful thing.

Now with all this energy, I can run around terrorizing the folks here. Isa, Edna, Poly, and now Kristin's getting the brunt of it. Such a lucky girl!

So, the next time I look north, and see what I think are the Northern Lights, I'll be wrong. It'll be the shine from that big ol' grin on your face!

31 hours to fix one typo? Wow, I knew Mainers were behind the times, but they have this really neat modern invention called White-Out. Come across the border sometime, I'll hook you up with 21st century technology!

All right, I gotta quit. And just imagine, this is me with NO caffeine! That, and you live close enough that you can strike back! *chuckle*

Thanks for sharing. It brightens a lot of peoples days here, to hear such awesome stories!

Oh Rats (mmm can I say that?)
Tried to merge you all together on the origional thread and yes
you guessed it I did it back to front and have lost the origional title.

Sorry - neraddan - you can change your title back to the maineiac (was that it?)
by clicking on modify and renaming the thread.

Have fun guys.

Thank you Sue for recombobulating me and my thread.  All this excitement's making me blonder for a bit I think!

MCop - Auburn is about 50 minutes north of Portland.

My horses' names are Count Neraddan (aka Radly, 17 year old bay Arabian) and Pete (16 year old Miniature Horse).  Both wonderful fellows.  Radly has owned me for 16 years.  Pete has been co-owner for 4 years here at Heaven on a Hill Farm.

No, you're not crazy (not anymore, at least!)

My greatest change on the diet has been the loss of a crippling anxiety that would sideswipe me out of the blue since I was a small child.  One day I noticed that I hadn't felt it in months.  No therapy, self help seminar, book, treatment, whatever had ever done that!  40+ years of anxiety attacks GONE!!!  That's the greatest success the diet has had for me so far.  Now it's been years since I've been attacked by those irrational, horrible, crippling, literally gut-wrenching seizures of existential angst.  I guess they really were  in my gut.  I got that response with just minimal compliance.  Now I am embracing my nonnie-hood and hope to see more wondrous improvements to both my physical and mental health.

Welcome to the insanely sane world of the BTD.

when situation of anxiety arrise.. gor threw and no flight and fight again.. when it happens you (me too ) must learn that this party is also a selfcreation and has nothing to do with realities........we must learn to look beyond our patterns to loose them
and BTD is the chemical structurative way to go for ;) because it underlined it that we
are in everytime sure and safe ....if we found the way back to our roots
Thatswhy it is soooooo important to eat and to behave similar to our roots.....






and sorry..couldn't resist... I am sooo happy - I'vent become a dip ;)
how does it sounds kyosha dip K...kirschen...cerieses = yum-yum

Man oh man oh man oh man!  Truer words (I guess they really were in my gut)!!!!

I'm still amazed.  Will probably spend the rest of my life being amazed.  T'is fun!

I'm thrilled to hear other people have had similar attitude changes.  

So glad these forums are here.

John!  On the ENTP - I ususally test ESTP - but know, by the way I do things (highly intuitive approach to programming, art, life in general)  that I'm really an NT at heart.

in Risos' Program ENTP ought to go to ESTP because of integration so far you got it too.... likewise our beloved mikeo.... he's also on his good way too  = good balanced
But if you tested ESTP first... so better to go to INTP/J  here is the integrative way for the ESTP's

I'm intrigued that you consider yourself a different Meyers-Briggs (Kiersey) type than the one you tested-out as.  The same thing happens to me, so I don't pay the test as much credence as the self-evaluation.  I think that in P.U.M II he makes room for this other way of testing: Self-evaluation.  Certainly Isabel Meyers did too.

No joking.. I play tennis SOOO much better when I've been compliant on the BTD... I know it's because my  mind is sharper... I have more energy... and I just have  the self confidence to make the shots!!

My biggest rival ( and friend) and I play a real match every Sunday morning.. I  can sure see the difference , and I know it has to do with a confidence level I didn't have before....

I've taken the Meyers-Briggs test several times over the years - 9 times out of 10 I'd test ESTP, but the S was usually very low on the scale - one time coming through as a 1.  I tested once as an INTP taking the test after a very introverted vacation on an island with very little people interaction.

Watching myself at work when I'm solving a programming problem or as I work on a fabric collage I see a lot of intuitive/right brain work going on.  

I don't doubt the other 3 indicators,  I'm a low level E, definitely a doer/thinker type.  Don't remember the scale placement for the P/J, but def. don't like to be tied down to a schedule (hence finally finding a job where I can work from home and have ultimate flexibility).  

Meyers-Briggs/Keirsey is interesting stuff, but like the BTD, it's a framework within which to create our own unique program.

...I'm still amazed. Will probably spend the rest of my life being amazed. T'is fun!...

Welcome, neraddan, and congrats on your happy amazement-inducing results thus far with the BTD!  I have exactly the same reaction and I've been on the thaaang since long about 1997!  I am always saying to peeps that "the novelty never wears off", "the thrill is still thrilling".  That is why I was able to resist the bagel chips and hot cheese dip someone brought in this morning and stick to my outside-the-box lambchop for breakfast.  Nothing tastes as good as health feels!  (Although I did have a rare wheat transgression this weekend, but we don't need to go THERE just now--took some glucosamine and am still riding 'er out but I think I'm okay...glucosamine is awesome stuff...but don't try this at home, O's, stick to wheat-free...turning my attention back to YOU now, neraddan...)  The oh-so-even-cooler part of this diet is that the amazing things just keep coming and coming, so strap in for what I term "the fantastic journey", as you are just at the beginning of amazement.

Enjoy!

Wow, this was like reading something I could have written about my own (late ) horse and the way I felt about riding her. Complete with "duck and spin move" and everything. Amazing!

I never found the cure for my uncertainties while she was alive, sadly enough. But I'm determined to do something about it, when I get a new horse. (WHEN not IF! )

It's so great to read how BTD changed so much for you, neraddan. Congratulation! Also to you horsie (what's his/her name?). All the great time you two now will spend together. And your horse will feel the difference and react accordingly. My Night Life (I didn't name her, honestly! ) was amazing, when I was in a "good period".

*slaps forehead* Duh, Poly - read the posts properly!

Good luck, neraddan! I'm so envious - I miss horse riding in my life. Just not got the money for it right now - and besides - I find it hard to find a new horse. No one will ever fill Night Life's space. I have yet to meet the horse, that "speaks" to me like she did from day 1. But I'm confident he/she is out there somewhere waiting for me...

Horses are amazing creatures. So big and strong and yet so gentle and totally depended on you. Love them.
