Having had the pleasure to host Tynan in Bogota, I learned a lot of things about health, primarily staying away from refined carbs and white grains. This was 2 years ago and it got me on a health kick.
Fast forward to 2012, and we just launched a product called Mama Camu. It is a spray-dried, powder extract of an Amazon Fruit called Camu Camu, which has the highest quantity of vit C of any food in the world.
Plus some other good anti-oxidant, amino acid, anti-inflammatory stuff.
Anyways, I know there are some members here who are interested in healthy lifestyle as well. The first 20 who message me will receive a free bag. US only. (On the about page of mamacamu.com there are links to 3rd party research).
Recently a comment was posted where someone asked why I don't drink. I do seem to mention it in a number of posts, mostly those where I'm complaining how hard it is to find a girl who also doesn't drink, but I suppose I've never explained why. I also don't do drugs, smoke, or take medicine.
I've never had a drink in my life. I went to a private school in Andover, Massachusetts for middle school and I don't think anyone there drank. Maybe they did and I was blissfully ignorant. I remember one kid got caught for smoking and it was a huge controversy.
After middle school my family moved to Austin, Texas and I went to a public high school. My first day there I got lost and happened to have wandered behind the building. to my surprise there was a huge mass of kids smoking cigarettes and pot. One such kid, a Junior, picked me up and put me in a trash can.

There is an element of waiting when a person is facing a long road back to health.
There are no guarantees. Still, the treatments go on, the doctors come every day to talk and asses and we all wait.
She is on my mind as I wake, waiting for another day to learn about the test results of the last round of treatments.
This relationship called friend has been cracked open by her illness.
