Thank you to everyone for their good wishes. I am feeling better - I haven't puked in several days! I went away to camp for the weekend while my people went to Chicago without me, but I had a great time and I came back full of energy. I'm still a little itchy, but better.
The change came, I believe, because I am no longer VEGETARIAN!!!
My dad is one of those crazy non-meat-eaters, but my mom eats white meat (poultry and seafood). About a year ago, my dad thought it would be good for me and the planet to put me on veggie kibble. Boooooring.... But now I am back to good ol' chicken Purina. Tasty! And I eat twice a day, instead of once a day like I used to.
I should have thought of the whole throwing-up routine a long time ago! It got big results, and no pills!
