A Couple of Blog Announcements

It's been very odd not blogging over the last few days. I've both enjoyed the little break and missed the routine of writing at the same time. This was an important time for me to be away, however, and it was the right decision. I would not have been in the frame of mind necessary to write. I would have written things too wildly personal to be appropriate for public consumption - boundaries are a things of beauty. But I found I lived each day with slightly less intensity and much less observation and introspection. And, I'm ready to go back to being a regular poster. Starting tomorrow, Rolling Around in My Head will be back in business.



Too, I wanted to remind other bloggers that I will be hosting this months Disability Blog Carnival and the topic is Pride. The goal is to have others submit the blog post they are most proud of, not the one that got the most comments or notice, but the one they feel best expressed something about the disability experience. I need the posts by the end of next week so that I can put something together by the end of the month, the 27th to be exact.

See you tomorrow with a regular blog post.

Missed you.

Was scared you'd gone for good.

Glad you're back.

Glad to see you back! I miss you when you're gone. A foremost expert on CFS, Dr. Jacob Teitelbaum, has just put out a new book called Beat Sugar Addiction Now: http://endfatigue.com/. It is written in a simple style and outlines his easy to follow, multi-step plan. He begins by identifying 4 main types of sugar addicts and then outlines a specific plan for each type of addict to follow. He explains how sugar plays into the problems suffered by each kind of addict and goes into detail when clearly and succinctly explaining how to beat the cravings. While Teitelbaum does not provide recipes or meal plans, he does give guidelines for healthy eating and lists of recommended foods as well as the glycemic index for many common foods.This book would probably be helpful not only to people attempting to lose weight, but also to those with illnesses such as Type II Diabetes, Fibromyalgia, and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, just to name a few. Though Teitelbaum is a medical doctor and is clearly coming from a medical background, he writes in layman's terms and creates a book that will be easily understood by most people.

Just FYI, I tried to follow the link in the previous comment and it sent me into a spiral of spam!?!
Not sure if the link is bogus or not but wanted to warn just in case.

So glad to have you back, but also glad you freely took what you needed for you.

Absence makes the heart grow fonder--for all of us, it does.:)

I am not sure whether I'm late for the disability blog carnival - did you say the end of this week or last? Anyway, I'm not sure if we have to submit recent posts or older posts, but within the last month, the post I'm most proud of is my most recent post: http://astridvanwoerkom.wordpress.com/2010/06/19/on-disability-and-suffering.

I may well be too late to submit to this, but one of my posts that I am proud of is: http://fairertoday.blogspot.com/2010/02/stages-of-change.html
Thanks :)

I'd like to add my entry for the carnival, if it's not too late!

I was kind of surprised, at the time, how little response I had to what I had written.
