SO thinks I overstepped my welcome here, at a time when I was so happy to begin interacting. If so I am sorry, truly. I don't want to rile people up, that's so not my goal. If I'm still welcome here, I'd be relieved to do so. My SO is a diabetic, had a stroke, and I first read here to learn the real-life whats and what nots to learn about food and diet. If I offended anyone I am sorry. I get scared. Food is life, sometimes food is what can end life, and sometimes it's hard to distinguish between comfort and life, and which is more important. SO and I tend to think that comfort is more important, but I wonder why we can't have both.
This site is important, not only for foodies but for people who want to learn about the risks and value of food available, in multiple regions. I hope I can continue to post here and learn here, if for no other reason than that I've seen such sensible, compassionate posts here, and that I can learn about what is valuable and worthwhile and worth pursuing.
