Good rain today
I woke up to rain this morning so no need to get out of bed early. The rain slowed around noon so I went to Guerneville to do a little grocery shopping and came right back home and put the groceries away.
Around 3PM the rain started again. It rained hard and is still raining this evening.
Bodies acting up
Needless to say it was one of those days I stayed in the house and puttered doing mostly nothing which was just as well as my body rash from corn stuff was acting up today.
It’s not really a rash so much as I’ve gotten rid of a lot of it, but my whole back is sensitive and sorta feels like it’s on fire or maybe pins and needles is a way to describe it.
As far as I know I haven’t eaten any corn stuff for some time now, but all the stuff it did to my body has to go away which is taking some time. So I’m hoping the back thing is just a short lived thing on the way to recovery.
I think I have the corn out
I’ve actually had my main corn itch which was in my crotch area, itch less for several weeks now. I’m pretty sure I’m not eating much corn, but I could still be getting a little bit from somewhere that just isn’t hitting me hard.
No one knows
The truth is I don’t know and the doctors don’t have a clue either, so I’m mostly on my own. There’s not a lot I can do for treatment for this, mostly just grin and bear it. :O)
The Docs would give me steroids for it and I understand it would help, but then I have to deal with the steroids which I’d rather not do unless or until I really do need them.
I know what the cure is and that is not to eat or drink any corn stuff, but that is not so easy to do in our society as corn is in most all our foods or on it and in most of our meds, so I avoid most of those.
And our ingredients labels really suck as far as telling us what’s really in a product. I’ll give you an example. If you buy a fruit juice that is made from one concentrate, the ingredients will say from apple concentrate, maybe some other ingredients and citric acid which comes from corn, but they don’t tell you that.
But here’s the kicker. If that drink is made from two or more concentrates the ingredients are listed as just from berry concentrate and apple concentrate and not tell the ingredients of each concentrate, in other words they wouldn’t tell me there was citric acid in there which is from corn. You would think citric acid comes from citrus fruit, but it’s cheaper to get it from corn. Citric acid is a preservative used to retain color in way too much stuff.
Changing the name
One of the other problems is they make a lot of stuff out of or grow it on corn and give it another name such as sorbitol and you have to know it’s from corn. It should say sorbitol (corn) so one would know what it was made from, but no. I had to dump my toothpaste once I found out that and I stopped having burning sensations in my mouth.
I could go on and on about this,but that’s enough for now. :O)
That was my day.
