It’s time I went to the doctor. If you been reading my blog, you know that I’ve been dealing with digestive issues since I had the stomach flu. You can catch up here and here. I no longer have issues with horrible bouts of nausea but I’ve learned to work my diet around the foods that are the worst offenders. However, I still have issues with my, ahem, poop. It’s not normal. All I want to do is eat a salad! I never thought I would say that….I desperately want a salad. Not McDonalds….a.salad, damn it. I want to enjoy apple season. I’m too scared to eat a freaking apple. I want to munch on some peppers but I have to cook them first. Chomp on celery? Better juice it instead. It sucks and I’m over it.
I’ve been having thoughts of experimenting with my diet. I’ve always been one of those people that likes to think you can enjoy anything in moderation. My body may be telling me otherwise. Before I start playing the food elimination game I figure it might be a good idea to see if I can get some sort of diagnosis. So today, I had a doctor appointment. She rambled off a couple of things it could be. In any case, I’ve got to get testing done. This is why I haven’t wanted to go to the doctor; the resulting testing that will ensue. If I can find out what’s wrong then I guess it will be worth it.
I just want to get back to normal. Along my journey to get healthy, I learned what it’s like to feel good. I mean REALLY good. To not have that feeling despite my best efforts be healthy has been very frustrating for me over the past 6 months. I just want to feel good again. The way I feel right now reminds me of the days when I ate crappy food every day; low energy, a little grumpy, trouble getting moving in the mornings. The weather turning cold and the sun setting earlier doesn’t help any of this either. Between the two, I’m pretty much ready to hibernate for the season.
I’m determined to get back to my normal, energetic self. One way or another, I’m going to figure it out. I need to find out what is wrong…or at the very least eliminate some issues. Then I’m going to tackle it one day at a time.
Has a health issue ever gotten in the way of your goals? How do you handle it?
