I have been meaning to blog but every time I go to do it something comes up. Lots of things have happened since my last post. I don't even know where to start so I will just do a little update of current things and hope to start blogging more. One reason why I do want to blog more is because I have recently had some issues with my intestinal system and the Doctor wants me to have an endoscopy (again) and a colonoscopy (last one done when I was 23). She is thinking I have Crohn's Disease so right now she has me on a Low Residue Diet.....more like a baby food diet. There's not a lot you can eat on this diet and some of the things I can eat are on another list for my other illnesses that I can't eat. So, right now I am in the middle of preparing a list of my three different illnesses of foods I can and can't eat then narrowing it down to what I can eat on one list instead of three. It gets really confusing. I did make the mistake tonight of eating something that I should not have but I was really hungry for something with more protein and would fill me up. Uh, yeah it filled me up...too much and then I felt sick the rest of the evening.
The other thing that I could have if Crohn's comes out negative is a Gluten Intolerance so I have been trying to lay off of Gluten. It's just not as easy at it sounds because when you are on a very limited budget it's hard to pick out foods w/o Gluten or make two different meals. There has got to be an easier way to all of this which is why I am researching all these different issues I have and having one list of what I can eat. It's a work in progress and once I get results back from those two tests hopefully it will determine what I have so I can move forward.
This weekend is our fifth Wedding Anniversary and while that doesn't sound like a long time you would think different once you knew all the stuff we have gone through in the last several years. This is a big accomplishment having our 5th Anniversary and I am quite excited. A little disappointed because we have no money to go out on a date and have a nice dinner. I would just love to get out of the house with my hubby. It's been almost two years since our last date/dinner out alone. BAH! So, not sure what we are going to do. I guess just a usual night at the house. Someday we will be able to have a dinner out again. I am just hoping that I am feeling well on Saturday....last thing I want is to be feeling sick all night so I better be good and eat well the next few days.
