Hi Everyone. Thanks for all the well wishes and yes Emmi, da flake is flying out of da flump. Books that are helping: Taking Charge of Lupus by Pratt and Hallegua with a forward by Daniel Wallace, and The Lupus Recovery Diet by Jill Harrington. I've read the entire diet book and I'm not convinced to try this vegan, whole foods diet, but I still found it making me long for unprocessed food. It's been about 12 years since I've eaten cow or pig (just my effort to save a life) so you can probably imagine all the other junk that fills my diet. Hugs!
