Sleep? Yes indeed!
I sleep from 7pm to 3 a.m. each night, and wake a few brief times to release all that I drink, (hey now, just seeing if anyone is actually reading this and thus "unsubscribing" or such), smiles, but yes, I sleep 8 hours with a couple little interruptions and dog outings and such, but get back to sleep until 3 - when I emerge, without an alarm, on each day, and excited to embrace the new fabulous gift of a day!
Thankfully, I haven't any sulphur allergy or sulfites or sulfates. (I conduct wine tastings for some of my earnings and thus that would really put a damper on things).
BUT, I am extremely allergic to chemicals - DEET in bug spray, PERMETHRIN in topical "dog's tick preventative applications," and retinol in lady's anti-wrinkle face creams, and the tree wool resin used on waxed oil trench coats or field jackets, skeet shooting attire etc.; and wool, and wheat, and recently, cringe as this makes me, I learned I am now allergic to eggs!!!!???
I'm just damn lucky that I do eat as much exotic stuff that I do, and so giving up eggs is not the end of the world, I suppose, but if there could be one sensitive "Sally" when it comes to reactions to some things, OH BOY, do I make the cut!
And so, I have to drink wines without added chemicals (today that is an interesting path but I do find them, daily, and for which I am grateful) and use good skincare and not wear bug spray, nor even brush up against someone wearing a "waxed field jacket" (so much as I love those J. Peterman style, long, oil slicked trench coats) and now, sigh, not eat eggs!
Oh, and I'm allergic to negative, easily intimidated, and insecure and scared people, who are thus mean! But then I simply avoid those and hence spare myself an outbreak! Smiles.
Good to hear that your sister in-law is in touch with her culprit and that you can help her even with your home vino!!!
I think once everyone is "onto" what their system doesn't like, it isn't such a big deal to create a fabulous new life without those things. It's just the initial upset and annoyance and of course shock.
Anyway great YOU, happy wind up of 2013!!!!!!!!!!! (Boy, people sure learn more than they ever wanted to know via these food threads right)? Smiles. Happy all!!!! Cheers!!!!!!!!!!!!! - Leah
