As I approach 2 years of dealing with Crohn’s sans major medicine/drugs, I’ve realized that my blogging has dropped off from how often I was blogging through the early stages of this journey. It’s not that I don’t have things to say…..nope, that’s not it! I guess that, well….things are going pretty good. My early journey held a lot of test results and daily progress reports. That’s what dealing with a disease like this does for you! You take each day as it comes, and don’t worry about the future. Now, things are pretty level, so I don’t need to tell you as much of what’s going on. I keep having the occasional gas or cramping that hurts, but that’s probably once a week or less at this point. I’ve branched out and eaten more chocolate lately (OMG!!!), which IS NOT legal on the SCD diet. I am a confessed chocoholic though, and so have delighted in the fact that I can ingest small amounts every now and then. As things still get better, I’m tempted more so by the things I cannot have. Just last night I was soooooooo craving a simple piece of toasted wheat bread with butter. I did not give in, though I may have to go bake some almond-flour bread soon to make up for it. 🙂 I understand the magnitude that if I fall off the rigidity of my diet, things could go dramatically wrong in ways I have no desire to experience. That is not a fear that drives me….it’s just common sense. Stay away from the things that don’t work for you!!!
Anyway…..things are pretty good, if quiet. For those of you following our financial journey….I’ll blog on that sometime in the next couple of weeks. Cool stuff is happening. 🙂
Thanks for reading!
