Thank you so much T2T for all the info. If only I were so lucky to know what life feels like to eat those things you described...I really don't have to remove anything but the dairy...nothing in my world has much of anything in it. It bugs the crap out of me because there is only one thing I ever look forward to having once or twice a week..a frapp, now I have to give that one thing up. It's amazing how much I've given up over the years. I read the book "Sugar Blues" about 25 years ago and that really set the stage for me on the Sugar issue, but to never have it..well that's really hard and I did go a few years not touching anything with Sugar in it and I was okay with it, in fact when I smelled the sweets in the store it would gag me. Anyhow, I've got stevia and xylitol for now so I should mend well.
Wom, you and me both, cept for that I am sure the pred is what blew this out of proportion. =(
