peeking through the pain
Life is hard. People say it, but who really believes it? Especially an optimist like me. Ah, to be a pessimist and just KNOW that life is going to be hard, and expect it. The Bible says not to be surprised when painful trials come our way. But me? Totally shocked every time. Stunned, immobilized. Like my foundation has been rocked and where do I stand? If life just sucks and that’s just it, what’s the point?
Ah, grasshopper, you have much to learn. (Speaking to myself.)
‘Normal food amounts’ on the guaifenesin protocol is referring to non-concentrated amounts.
So, coconut oil on your salad in the amount of a Tbsp is a normal amount of oil in a salad dressing, that is a normal food amount. Taking a few Tbsp of coconut oil in hot water on an empty stomach for some medicinal reason however, has too much salicylates and may block you. Taking a Tbsp of turmeric on an empty stomach to help reduce inflammation, WILL block you. However, a Tbsp of it in your pot of curry isn’t going to hurt you, it’s a normal food amount 🙂
What do I do when I am not home and don’t know if the soap in the bathroom I am using is salicylate free?
It is possible to not block on this soap. Especially if you are super careful about everything else. But remember- salicylates accumulate throughout the day. You can end up tipping over the edge to blocking your guaifenesin from working to reverse your fibromyalgia symptoms if you do too many things like this. It’s why I NEVER use other peoples soap unless I’m sure it’s sal-free.

Some of the best things in life come when you least expect it! 😀 this recipe falls into that category! SO YUMMY!!!!
As usual, I have a ton of leftover chicken from baking 2 of them. Still not used to having only 2 of us to feed!
You getting bored of the same old recipes done over and over? Esp when you can’t have all the sweets and carbs? THIS has totally gotten rid of the doldrums 😀 Hypoglycemia Diet lib, Gluten Free, Sugar Free, Low Carb yumminess! 🙂
If you are on the Guaifenesin Protocol to treat your Fibromyalgia, you will want to get yourself some emu oil! I LOVE this stuff, it pretty much replaces all my uses for coconut oil 🙂
I am always looking for more natural, salicylate-free ways to do things, to stay healthy, and this is sooo natural! 🙂
Emu oil is anti-inflammatory, anti-aging, anti-wrinkle, anti-oxidant and has cell-regenerating properties! Sounds pretty fabulous right?
I couldn’t decide between Jello Pudding and just the ‘Pudding made with Gelatin’ name lol! If you are following me on here, you have seen my many attempts at coming up with a Pudding recipe that I like and that works with Gelatin! THIS recipe however, will astonish you with how wonderful and creamy it turns out! LOVE LOVE LOVE this recipe!! 😀
This one isn’t Custard- there’s no eggs in there this time. I am sick with a sore throat and looking for easy jello but can’t have juice since it’s so high in sugar. Milk and cream though- that I can have! 🙂 Num Num!! 🙂

This is a work in progress! We have an old list of possible doctors and mappers at the bottom of this post that we are going to start calling to find out if they still support the Guaifenesin Protocol. If you know of anyone, please leave a comment and we’ll make sure to look into it and possibly add them to our list. These are listed by State/Province, Country.
children, loss and grief
(Written Aug 24 2016) I have a dear friend who has been walking with me through this grief. I’ve never had a loss so big before and neither has she. Thankfully we are honest and open enough that she can just ask me about it and we talk. I thought it was high time people started to talk about this publicly.
*Warning- I am going to get all emotional and stuff, so if you aren’t into that kinda thing, skip this post! <3
Life is about loss. We lose a job, we lose a dream, we lose a friend, we lose a relationship, we lose people we love to death. I lost my 2 Foster boys to the system that is failing them miserably. Continue reading
This list is changing often as groups start and other groups stop! So come and check from time-to-time to see if there’s one in your area <3

“Today marks 3 years since I found the guaifenesin protocol to treat my fibromyalgia!
I’m so thankful. Was tearing up talking with my hubby last night about how much my life has returned since starting the protocol. We reminisced on some not so good memories & fondly spoke of God’s grace to me & our family.
Life really has come back & it only keeps getting better & better! It’s really hard for me to look back & think of everything I was hardly able to do & what I missed out on…”
