DISCLAIMER: I am NOT a Dr.or other medical professional. I AM a sufferer and fighter of Polycystic Kidney Disease, Type 2 Diabetes, Hypertension and Gout. Any information I share has been researched on the internet or has been given to me via papers and printed information from my Drs., nurses, dietician, social workers or other health care professionals. I mean NO harm to anyone and I advise you BEFORE using any information I have provided to CHECK with YOUR health professionals and doctors. I simply want to share what I am learning throughout my own personalized journey to wellness. It has been said, "Write what you know." THIS I know because I live with it DAILY. Having said that:

Food has been a struggle for me for a long while now but I MUST work at this and TRY hard to eat right and healthy and improve as much as I possibly can for as long as I possibly can so I figured if I am struggling with these things DAILY and doing all this work and learning ANYWAY, why not SHARE things that I am learning with others and make their journey a little bit easier for them too.

SO, I started these pages as a help BOTH for myself and for YOU.

If it is helpful PLEASE feel free to let me know! ;)

This is a HARD process and journey to wellness and I hope that if even for a moment, even ONE item or idea or trick that I share makes your journey lighter or easier then I have given purpose and meaning to the reasons why or how this has been MINE as well.

I always wish you well and good luck with your journey too. xo
