|Deadlier than it looks|
Okay, not all food. But gluten, eggs,and yeast. That's like, almost all food.
And whenever she eats any of it, terrible things happen. So terrible I can't even...
So I've told her to get on an appropriate diet. Told her that it kills me whenever she isn't.
So far, she's been doing good. But everyday an evil cookie calls her over to the darkside. She's walking that thin line between Jedi and Sith, but I know that the blue lightsabers always win.
And Kimberly will win.
Already she has vaporized all unhealthy food in her house. Already she has promised me to never touch bad food again.
But her greatest challenge awaits.
Kimberly is going away to meet family this Thanksgiving. Going away to a house full of pain inducing food.
Yes. I know she will. How?
Because Kimberly never breaks a promise. So...
Have a great Thanksgiving honey.
Just focus on the turkey. And the force will be with you.
In Defense of Myself: Kimberly's Story
What can I eat? Meat, veggies and fruit.
I've not been very good at staying away from these things since I found out.
I try. I really do. But then the food calls to me with their evil little voices. "Eat me, eat me," and come on, homemade mac and cheese beats out carrot sticks any day of the week.
It also sends me to the fetal position crying.
You'd think given all my brilliance and brain power that this would be, well, a no-brainer.
But apparently I'm a true moron when it comes to my own health. I have the foresight of a gnat. Seriously.
When it comes to food, I see about .3 seconds ahead. That's it. The rest is a blur.
And it is killing me. It's making holes in my gut. Causing my body to swell from the inside. Leaving me in pain ALL the time.
And yet, stopping for myself was just too hard.
But Dmytry is hurt when I'm hurt. And I can't hurt him.
And I can't break a promise to him either.
So this Thanksgiving, I will not have gravy, or biscuits or wine or beer or stuffing or bean green casserole or any desserts. I will eat meat. And...well...I don't know.
But I will not break my promise.
