Woke up this morning with aching index toes....

Last night the strangest thing happened. My index toes ached so bad, it woke me, and I had to get up to put something on them. I used some Leonotis leonurus infused Castor oil. Great stuff. My toes still ached, but got better and I fell asleep again.
I first thought something bit me, but then both feet wouldnt be affected. It must be an allergic reaction to the berry juice I had just before bed. Usually I am not allergic to anything - except store bought bread. When I eat bread, I can be sure to be in pain for the next two days. So I have managed to cut out bread from my diet for the past 6 years. Sometimes I do have bread, but I always end up regretting it, as my body just objects by lashing me with pain. A few times the pain was so bad, I could not breath or move - I thought I must be dying.
I have thought about the bread intolerance, and it is strange, because not all wheat products affect me the same way. Six years ago, I could not eat any wheat products at all. I remember, because I could not even eat the pudding at my wedding. Nowadays, I can have wheat products, but only once in a while, because the effect seems to be accumulative. How I suffered before I figured it was bread!! At one stage I was in permanent pain. Not a nice place to be.
So, dieting wise, I am not doing too well. My downfall comes late at night in the form of sweet cravings. And unfortunately I am a good cook, and can whip up something lovely in 20 minutes.
So, to counteract this late night temptations, I am going to go to bed earlier. A bit difficult, because Hubby works to the early hours of the morning in front of his PC, and I usually stay up with him. I am sure this lack of sleep is not too good for my melatonin levels.
Mentally I am feeling OK. Substituting the anti-depro meds with Hemp seed oil is working so far. I am lacking a bit of motivation, but it should help to stick to a schedule. Unfortunately I am not too good with routine.
