Tonight, more bitterly cold weather. Down Under, 41C. And it's NOT due to climate change?

You could extend this to extremes for trauma survivors. One minute, you feel a sense of balance. Then, despair. Today we've been fighting to keep our balance. We also talked to a mate at our local health food store re: balance.

In our case, we can't handle anything tomato based (an alkaline food). How then do you eat chips? We're still working on a substitute dip. Acidic foods (meat, chips, lemons and more) with no balance can make you more suseptable to disease.

Too much acid makes you hyper. Too much alkaline makes you dissociate.

Have you found a good balance? If you have, post some comments. Or email to ptsdsurvival at
