    I cooked Jamaican jerked chicken breast fillets and significantly less Tilda Basmati Rice, which consisted of one small teacup of rice to two small teacups of boiled water.

    My mental health services dietitian advised me to cut down on carbs and I've done that.

    I also had a beautiful salad with minimal French dressing yesterday because of the glucose in the French dressing.

    I'm very well mentally but I've just been diagnosed with sciatica and acid reflux symptoms. I'm taking Lansoprazole gastro-resistant capsules for my acid reflux symptoms.

    Youre becoming my twin.
    My GERD and scatica has off and on major effects on me. Sometimes enough to make me cry so you have my full sympathy. I'm missing my swimming sessions. Even bought new clothes to encourage my mood. 50% worked but then these stupid rain and winds. I'm suffering with a swollen face from the bleeding now and it's affected my breathing. Luckily I have help anticipated on Thursday. Thank god.

    Keep posting as I enjoy your updates.
