Hello Nonnies,

I considered trying to create a new identity just to post this question because I am ashamed to ask it... However, I decided to ask it without the pseudonym anyway and let it all hang out, hopefully to get something back that I can use. Here goes,

Have any of the NONNIES been so overwhelmed at the enormous responsibility they have for the state of their OWN health, (now that they know their secretor status and the requirements thereof) and YET feel like they aren't up to the challenge?

I feel so NOT up to the task and therefore DESPONDENT, GUILTY, SPINELESS, FOOLISH, IDIOTIC and like I deserve every rotten outcome that will surely happen because of my inability to take this wonderful gift of knowledge and put it into practice.

If you were ever where I am at this moment, please tell me how you got the strength to get past it and do what you needed to do every day of your life to live.

You can do it!  It may take a little bit to get in the groove but you will be sooo thankful that you did.  I did not like finding out that I was a nonnie but adding those little "tweeks" to what I was (or wasn't) eating made all the difference in the world.

If you don't have the Live Right 4 Your Type book, I'd highly recommend getting that.  The food values are broken down according to secretor/nonnie.  Take a look at the lists and notice if you've been eating some foods that you thought were neutrals that are now avoids.  Also, some foods you thought were beneficial have now changed to just neutral for us nonnies.  

I made little changes like giving up cow milk entirely.  I now only drink goat as that is still a nonnie beneficial.  Also, I gave up regular fruit on the bottom yogurts and replaced them with plain yogurt that I add fruit sweetened jam or actual fruits to (blueberries are great).

It seems daunting at first, but it hasn't been that bad in retrospect.  I've never felt better.  And since you're a b-nonnie like me, if you absolutely LOVED tomatoes and thought you could never have them again, well, enjoy some right now cause they're neutral!  Yay!

Think of it as an even more pesonalized version of ER4YT which will give you amazing results.

Thank you all for your contributions. I appreciate each one of them. I am going to keep all of them close and try to implement them. Victoria, it seems I could use about 75% of the Bach Flower remedies :( I will probably take a closer look at them  tomorrow and then ask you for your recommendations for firsttime users. Thanks again, everyone.

It's a long path for some of us to get in the groove, and we often take a crooked road to get there, but there are benefits every step of the way.  I've stumbled plenty, and recently reawakened to my reality, as well as some unexpected benefits.

Nothing about you has changed in finding out your secretor status, except you now have a gift of knowledge and power.  It is a remarkable gift!  You've come this far, you do have what it takes to step up to the challenge.   So, go find your favorite beneficial, and give it to your body and mind like the gift that it is.  Let the avoids fade away in your mind like the background of a photo, and focus on the beneficials in center-stage.  Then you will realize the variety, beauty and vitality of these foods, and of your life.

I believe that non-secretors have a very real potential to draw in the positive energies around them and become spiritually amazing.  Maybe this is because we do depend so much on our surroundings, or we just need that influence more than others, but I think there are benefits to being a non-secretor that cannot be measured.

Hi LuHu,

your 'problem' really only comes up in a 'handicapped' world.  Regular folks for instance will choose what is intelligent over ignorance; wealth over poverty; courage over cowardice; peace over war; comfort over ?????; energy over laziness; etc.  The world though is not so black and white.

We can easily point to these discrepancies and ask if its essential that I give a full recognition (and acceptance) to an elderly man who is Chinese-African with German, Scottish; Russian; native-American; and Italian ancestry, who is crippled; over-weight;
myopic; over-bearing; loud; mentally retarded.................. etc.  Does he have 'equal' dignity to me?

We (in the disabled-world) tend to identify more with the losers than with the winners.  And here is THE TRICK.  Such identification is good ... because a loser has a place to grow ... the winner is 'fixed'.    "Ah, you only wish to be like-me .... A(the) success!" ....  "Not actually, I really wish happiness ... and you have so little of it!"

Many of the ancient Greeks philosophers used to teach, that life is centered towards happiness ... much too often we equate happiness and pleasure.   Accepting the spaces that we are and those circumstances which we not have a clue about  [For instance: being intellectually greatly challenged]... is not much of difficulty, it is the understanding that this 'I' is never a fixed reality .... as Isa says "have a look at what you are 'not'."

Am I to grow ... smarter, wiser, get more rich. get more harried; get more peaceful; become more loving in a world seemingly hate-based ....

there are many more questions than answers................
