Hi there! I just saw your intro post in the OA team. You had asked about sweeteners. I had the same question when I joined OA and gave up sweets and sugars. I posted a reply to your question on that thread, if you wish to see it. I am finding that a sweetener here and there is working for me, although certain ones seem to be a potential trigger for me.
Thanks for your comments on my spark page. I think taking your afghan is a great idea! Keeping our hands busy is a really good way to stayed focused on something else. You asked about whether sugar substitutes are addictive? I don't really know. But sweet things, in general, tend to set me off. So I just try to be as careful as possible. Good luck to you with your family! 1019 days ago
