As expected, once temptation was out of my immediate realm, I’ve been able to maintain a wheat-free, lactose-free, sugar-free diet for two complete days. Had a pretty horrible headache yesterday but that was bearable.
Today I felt great. I made dinner for tomorrow night at work (pulled pork and cole slaw) and dinner for us tonight (baked chicken, broccoli and oven roasted eggplants and turnips). I harvested the little seeds out of my pomegranates and went shopping for (and found) bulk coconut oil and coconut flour at BJ’s! Woo hoo!
It’s the little things, people!
I’ve suddenly taken a shine to olives, for some reason. Hated them up until recently, but then all of a sudden I wanted to eat them constantly. I wonder what’s in them that’s making me crave them.
I’m in the market for a new physician. I like the person who is my doctor, but I don’t necessarily like the chaos and disconnect going on. Having a child working in the field, and listening to her tell me the troubles that happen when an office decides to migrate to a new system, gives me a head’s up as to why this chaos may be happening. That said, I’m not sure I’m willing to risk my health while they “work it out”.
In this instance, the doctor wants me to take a medication that expressly states that people who have X should never use. When questioning this, the office called me up to let me know that a completely different condition would not have any interaction with the medication. When I corrected them and explained the condition I was concerned with, they blew me off and said that I’d have to come in and talk with her. What? Truly? I have to make an appointment and come discuss it because you confused my condition and don’t have the time to take my phone call? Or call me later to discuss with me? Who is the customer here? I’m just thankful I read the monographs thoroughly before taking any medications.
So, the hunt is on but it’s not easy finding a physician. You just never know if you are going to click and feel comfy with a doctor until you’re fairly invested in the situation. I’m trusting the universe will let me know exactly who I’m supposed to go see.
