End of Treatment, New Diet and a Move!

So, I haven't posted because we finally MOVED! Wow. What a long, arduous ordeal. So now that we are settling in I can finish writing up about my treatment.
I forgot to mention in my last post that along with my treatements, I was given a new diet......no sugar and no flour. Yeah, that pretty much eliminates most of my previous diet. I'm now supposed to eat lots of complex carbs and foods rich in amino acids. I eat mostly fruits and veggies, especially mangoes, bananas, berries, avocados, brocolli and meats and beans and some whole grain stuff. I can't tell you all how much better I feel. I feel refreshed and I have so much more energy. My insides feel so much better--I didn't realize how painful they were before. I really enjoy eating this healthy--it just is much more expensive and not many of the items I eat keep for very long. I've tried a few times eating something like a hamburger on white bread or a flour tortilla and I feel pretty miserable after.
So I finished treatments on July 4th and today is July 23rd and I have not had a single dip in my mood. It has been amazing and we are hoping it continues. The treatment center I went to was called Theta Wellness. There are several locations in Utah. It has been life changing for me and my family! They treat other things too like drug/alcohol/pornography addictions, ptsd, anxiety/depression, adhd and are even experimenting with autism patients.
So....now we are onto projects in our new house and yard, meeting our new totally awesome neighbors and enjoying the summer. In the fall we will be taking our oldest to kindergarten and I'm hoping to have playgroups with the littler kids. And of course there is designing and crafting on my list. One can never prepare too earlier for Halloween. :)
Thanks for everyone's love and support!
