Mmmm, Pad Thai. I'm not a big fan of sugar, so I don't use any of that in mine. I pretty much have a philosophy of low carbs and a fairly high degree of protein. It has been found that a large amount of polyunsaturated oils are inflammatory. So I roll with olive or believe it or not, peanut oil. Heavier oils, such as lard, are not bad for you if used in moderation. I don't eat out so I'm not too worried about saturated fats.
With this hand disease I've found that saturated fats can sometimes help. Of course any imbalance is not good and it's always a guess as to the right mix. That's why I try and stick with olive, fish, and saturated oils. I suppose you could call it the 3-6-9 combo.
So, how's it going? I don't know sometimes. Sometimes it's better, and sometimes I want to kill myself. (Kidding) I have been staying away from alcohol, except for tonight, but I think it may have a use, at least in moderation (which is something I never did, having to learn that).
But I'm not getting much worse, and some days I can almost forget about it. So I would call that progress. It's like walking a tightrope knowing if you fuck up there is hell to pay. And I don't mean in the future sometime. It's right now and/or soon. It's a pretty shitty life compared to what I was used to. Everything is a psychological chore as you deal with the way your hands feel.
Hopefully I have a new shipment of herbs coming in and I really think this new formula is the shit. Well, I haven't tried it yet, but it has components that I have worked with, but not all at once. You know I get tired of taking these god damn decoctions all the time. I wish the Pharma freaks would get after this so I can just take a pill. I really would. I suppose they can't make enough money on it to make it worth their while. Well, fuck 'em. they don't do a very good job on things they know how to treat anyway.
I just hope they don't ban guns in case I need to commit suicide. Course, if your hands get so bad that you can't pull the trigger...I guess you're pretty much fucked.
I guess this food post turned into a discussion about my disease. So be it. I said I would figure this out and cure it. It's becoming harder than I ever thought. I'm on the trail, but I'm not sure if it will be in time. Maybe time enough for somebody, not sure about me. #DC #Dupuytrens #DamnShit #PadThai #AlteredMyOutlook #LifeStoppedBeingFun
