Turns out that I could not tolerate a prescription toothpaste that I was supposed to put on my gums at night and leave it, no rinse. Unfortunately, it contains Xylitol which apparently I cannot handle (I've known for a long time that I can't handle sorbitol and lately it's turning up in more foods than ever - they are both sugar alcohol sweeteners and wreak havoc with my digestive system and suck all of my energy away). I decided to test a couple of days without it and lo and behold I started to feel more energetic. A week later, and the Mexico dress is 'finished' ... well, it's finished as far as the instructions are concerned, but I keep looking at it and wondering whether to add more embroidery. I am 2/3rds finished with a dress for one of my granddaughters and have been pulling out patterns to match up with fabric and pre-washing fabrics. I'm almost back to my 'old' self, just need to get my sleep schedule back on track.
