Last night I had an attack of what I am going to describe as the 'What If? horrors'. Having embraced and digested (pardon the pun) my dairy allergy, it dawned on me that I could soon be better than I have been for the last 8 months. On my first afternoon free I raced to the … Continue reading It is what it is
I've always had the sort of health and body that just worked without too much trouble. I could push it to extremes of stress and endurance (although not physical) and it ran on empty quite well. I travelled, ate local foods, drank water in Thailand and Bali, spent many years in alcohol-soaked work cultures and … Continue reading A dark horse (or is it a cow?)
before deciding it's not worth your time. That's a bit how I feel today after seeing my GP again. Here's the things we agreed on: Stop all supplements (except vitamins) because we don't know what side-effects they're having My cholesterol was fine and my mouth is not infected (these have actual proof from tests!) Time … Continue reading Apparently you only read this for 20 seconds…
These come up and take you by surprise. Im sitting in the doctors rooms waiting for a fasting blood test for bloody cholesterol. Am I 100% certain this will show nothing of importance? Yes! But I'm here because the doctor I usually see urged me to. So I had to come on no breakfast, and … Continue reading Another Low
Taking it to the next level. Out of desperation yesterday I made an appointment with a new doctor in the same clinic as my current one. The taste in my mouth has not shifted after 2 tubes of anti-fungal Daktarin. I saw a registrar, which I didn’t realise until she concluded the session with a … Continue reading What now?
... or a healthy-eating blogger writing about food. I wish during the day I spent my time noting all the wonderful things my daughter is doing in her third year, instead of the misery of my latest doctors appointment. I wish I could look back on this blog and see all the amazing milestones she's had instead of all of … Continue reading I wish I was a Mummy-Blogger
Disappointment is the main feeling I have to contend with right now. It's hard to understand why my mind still hopes for each day to be better and feels the sad sting when it isn't. I didn't write about my new naturopath visit because it coincided with suffering awful gastro, plus it's a bit boring … Continue reading 8 months yesterday – life is getting shorter.
I feel cold tonight, on the inside again. I desperately hope I'm not getting sick. I've felt in a reasonable state of anxiety for the last few hours, or what I think is anxiety, with thoughts and words bubbling below the surface of my mind endlessly. Today I asked myself the question 'can you do … Continue reading cold
Yeah, I tell you what, I'm getting sick of this. It seems since the end of June, I have been worse and worse, with multiple extra illnesses on top of just feeling bad. It's hard to say that I'm feeling better because generally I don't and the important thing to remember is I'm nowhere back … Continue reading Now I need a cure for the gastro that the cure caused…
It's felt like a very long time, this last 8 months and I know (or hope) that one day this too, will have passed and we can all look back with 'gosh, remember that year I was so sick?'. Fingers crossed! When I'm all fixed I will: Take my daughter to the zoo to pat … Continue reading Things I will do once I’m better
