Give me raspberries or give me death!

I know that following the “ataxia diet” recommended by the Ataxia Center at UCLA will not cure Friedreich's ataxia. I am not sure whether it will kill me.

I kid, of course, but the diet cuts out cakes, muffins, donuts, pies, even unsweetened fruit juice, and brown sugar. What is oatmeal without brown sugar? White goo.

I am not even sure what “unsweetened fruit” is. Isn't fruit naturally sweet? I guess lemons and limes, but who eats them?

The thing here is that I can't walk. I have no girlfriend and that is low on the list of likelihoods. I fight depression regularly. I fall.

I don't want to take things that make like worth living like watermelon and peaches and mangoes and brown sugar. Raspberries!

Life sucks; it shouldn't taste bad, too.
