A while back I decided it couldn't hurt if I saw a naturopath. I mean... after I declared myself willing to even try eating cow patties for a week if it would help, I thought maybe that wasn't so far off. So I'm supposed to take a host of expensive vitamins (which I sometimes forget) and drink a shake thingy twice a day (which I'm often too tired to make) and eliminate gluten and cows milk from my diet.
It hasn't been as hard as you might think. God bless Trader Joe's for having lots of gluten free foods as well as lots of things made from goat or sheep milk. I really don't think I could live without cheese. Cheese is like a metaphor for life dood.
So, it's like a month later and I have no idea if this is helping me. But I just finished eating a late breakfast consisting of one hard boiled egg, 3 smallish Persian cucumbers, a tablespoon of real mayo from the aforementioned store, a shake of celery salt and a sprinkle of toasted sesame seeds. And now I'm either breaking out in hives on the right side of the roof of my mouth right behind my teeth, or immediately as I finished eating starting to develop the cold sore from hell.
Yay me. I guess I'll remember to take those vitamins today and have the shake, because if this keeps up eating anything else will just be painful. Follow up with Rheumatologist on Friday cannot come soon enough. I just pray that she's got an itty bitty idea of what might be going on with me.
