I totally almost forgot about this.
Where I Left Off:
July - I've just been diagnosed with pnuemonia.
I was off work for a week and once I actually took the time to rest and was on an antibiotic, the pneumonia cleared up relatively quickly. It's amazing what an antibiotic can do.
Once my pneumonia was cleared up I noticed that I was still having stomach issues. I went back to my doctor who ordered more tests. We are now into August and I can't get a stomach ultrasound until OCTOBER. But in the interim, the doctor puts me on medication for my stomach.
I continue with the life changes: no aspartame, no fast food and no facebook games.
I also make an appointment with a nutritionist. She's not a normal nutritionist. She's a holistic nutritionist and she deals with the whole body.
There is a giant questionnaire to fill out. I had originally picked up the questionnaire in March of 2010 and paid a $50.00 deposit but never followed through on it because I just wasn't ready.
Then, I called her in August and she informed me that she wasn't taking any more patients. I told her that I already had the questionnaire and had paid the $50.00 and had my receipt so she said I could come in. I was so happy because this woman quite literally has saved my life.
My appointment with her was mid-September.
The appointment was quite traumatic. She was putting me on a very strict diet to help me with all the problems that I was having: No sugar. No wheat. No dairy. No potatoes. No processed/cured meats. No pork. No cantaloupe. No melons. No strawberries. No nuts unless they were raw. No beans. No lentils. No chick peas. No aspartame. No splenda. No peanuts. No fried foods. No coffee. No tea.
No fucking fun.
