My first school was an interesting place. I don't talk about it much for several reasons. I may have mentioned it here before, but for now I'll just say it's hard to get into and it's government run.
We haven't found any foods which cause problems for me. We have found several that alleviate certain issues better than others. I seem to be fairly lucky to be a full omnivore. I also didn't eat or drink anything differently than normal.
Like I mentioned, I sit a lot for work now. I also spent a few days before the hurricane constantly on my feet, lifting and carrying heavy objects in weird positions. And I did it all over again right after the hurricane. I did start to feel some of the tension or swelling in that time, but not much. It usually goes away within a day. Why it took several days to hurt like that... Maybe I was too dehydrated for it to swell during that time. I spend the second half of last week trying to catch up on hydration and was at my best on Friday night.
I do need to go to the chiropractor/nutritionist soon for several other issues. I'm going to bring it up. It might be a good idea to do a test, or have my PCP do a wide spectrum test and bring the results to my nutritionist.
It's still up and read-only, but he's disabled posting. Sounds like a permanent move. He said he's been thinking about it for a while, but the recent negativity towards the Sons of Apollo album seems to have pushed him over the edge.
He also said social media sites have helped negate the need for a forum. I know of a few I used to post on that are now just Facebook groups (although one is only because they had a massive server error and lost everything). I'm personally not active on Facebook and am breaking the rules by using a fake name. It's only there so my other accounts can forward content to the Facebook page, and you have to have a personal account linked to a page. It's a crap system really. I have pages because people view them, but I don't view them myself on Facebook. I was a very early user of the site. It's grown into an unmanageable abomination, and is essentially spyware. Anyway, that's where you'll have to go for your Portnoy info now. I didn't really keep up before, and I'm definitely not going to now.
