Now reading this post, I feel sort of shocked how much we have in common. . . uncanny. . .( I have problems with my teeth from citrus and count every calorie and have money issues from buying fruit, longterm raw food diet, processed food binging, among other things)
Keep writing and I will too. I also feel self conscious about exposing what I feel might cause a reaction in others but even just starting to post here I find it good therapy and keeps my mind off food.
As for the money situation- I have that problem too- spending way too much on fruit. Have you ever tried blending greens and straining them? It seems to help me with cravings for Sugar and costs so much less. Just an idea that you may have already considered.
