I keep hoping and waiting for this rainbow, but the truth is I’ve been feeling poorly for a good two-three weeks. Longer, but that’s how long it’s been really bad. Gastritis and headaches that I can’t seem to escape. Back pain as well. Abdominal pain moves from right to left and up and down and I know my stomach and esophagus are inflamed (since I’ve had endoscopy in the past during times of inflammation). So it seems like gastritis or maybe a mild version of Crohn’s that has never been diagnosed since even my mouth can get sore. But the truth is, it’s been a real struggle the last month to take care of my dad and if my husband weren’t here, I’m not sure I could do it at all.
But also in the past these stomach things always pass–seem related to seasonal allergies sometimes and no question the stress is adding to it all. So I was hoping to avoid all these tests yet again. I’ve had recent blood work which was fine. And I have a couple orders for MRI’s to check my upper back and neck which can be weak points.
I am a big exerciser and believer in it to manage stress and everything else, but I felt I needed rest. Since that seems to have only improved things slightly, I’ll try for a bit of sun here, take my beans outside to harden a bit since I want to plant those tomorrow, maybe a few easy minutes on the bike. See how that goes.
I haven’t been perfect on my carnivore diet partly because I wanted to try different things, but nothing has worked–I still seem to feel the best on fewer carbs and low fiber.
But today I will try to transplant my green beans. They do not like to be transplanted and they have gotten too big so I am not hopeful and if I wait any longer, I’m doomed for sure. So in they will go. Not to mention they are climbers. So will hope for the very best.
Maybe I’ll get lucky, but doubt it.
