Arthritis Update and Going Wheat Free

I previously blogged about having some issues with hand pain and increasing hand gripe weakness. The results from the blood tests and xrays came back. They show nothing. Absolutely nothing. Which on one hand is a great thing. It means no arthritis that they can see and my blood work does not show any immune system flare ups. The down side is the lingering question of why.

Other times I think they might need an extra day or two to ripen but need to use them in a recipe and they turn out fine. The only method I was relying on to test for ripeness was the texture when the […] read more
