30 Dec

Today, I am very tired.  I get days like this sometimes on the restricted diet I’m on.  I know that I’m not getting all the nutrition I need.  I’m still unsure about veggies, and what I can eat.  I need to be more brave in those choices, but it is very hard to do when you are afraid of the symptoms returning.  Usually I do pretty good.  But today I just feel run down.  I also am not sure what I can eat.  I need something, but what?  I don’t want yogurt, or another egg, or broth.  I think I want bread, but not sure, and won’t go there.  I just want….something.

Sometimes eating restricted isn’t so fun, you know?

I could also be tired because I’m fighting a cold, and my 7-year old daughter has had ear aches the last two nights, so I’ve not gotten a lot of sleep.  I HAVE discovered though that I can take Tylenol PM to help me sleep.  When I have a cold, that’s the toughest part…..trying to ignore the stuffy nose and tickle in your throat. 

I sure hope I can sleep tonight.  I think I’ll go make myself a cup of hot peppermint tea with fresh lemon juice and dark honey.  Maybe that will help me.
