I take lamictal for seizures / bipolar mainly seizures. I was curious if it would cause any psychological issues or if I would have horrible side effects. This is the only thing I am worried about happening if I start paleo. (more)
So I was prescribed 6 days of prednisone for "trench foot" (forgot my wool socks for snowboarding). The dosage decreases by 4 mg everyday, starting at 24 mg at Day 1. I know it's not a terribly large amount, but the side effects have not been... (more)

So I just started the paleo diet a couple of days ago and I'm trying to do the whole30 thing. I'm very new to it all and learning more and more everyday. I am definitely finding it challenging and boy am I hungry :) I used to be a competitive... (more)
