    Seems like it's classic "it can't be that simple!"

    Had a retreat weekend by a lake, (mostly a work assignment. Mostly) beautiful spot with no WiFi and restricted cell phone usage. Just what the doctor ordered! :D

    I managed even though I could not do my morning smoothie, and the food was very good, much of it cultured, though rather Weston Price -- bit light on the protein, but they always had gluten-free options.

    Still, I did very well considering I couldn't control my environment, AND forgot my sleep mask! Though that was okay because there was no light pollution.

    However, the one snag was when I woke up at 1 AM on my second day, midst of a panic attack, and couldn't get back to sleep. Things got worse and worse, to the point where I was ready to do anything to make it stop... and I realized I had brought my pregnenolone... and had not been taking it. Fool.

    Took 150 mg, and in five minutes I felt much better. In fifteen minutes I was asleep again.

    Amazing stuff.

    Simple and cheap and no downside to any of it.!

    And there's the problem in so much of Western Society -- no "middleman" that collects a profit on any of it.

    Taking it easy on a three day weekend; I have so many creative projects going that unplugging is difficult, but of course it must be done!

    Last weekend I went away on a three day wellness retreat. Most of it was very good; restricted Wifi, turned off cell phones, and a whole bunch of people who understand Airplane Mode. The food was delicious, very Weston Price and fermented and such, but protein light and starch heavy. Despite my good intentions, eating that way threw me off; especially since my environmental control was less than optimum. I needed the extra carbs, but have successfully gone back to my 2 meals a day this weekend.

    And will be resting for the first time in 2 weeks.
