Okay, so, I don't get too personal on this blog much. At least, I don't think I do. Mainly because my life is boring and the things worth telling would just make you realize how twisted I am. Sooo... I don't go there much.
Unless it starts to affect my blogging and internet presence.
And lately it has.
For the past few weeks (since before Christmas), my internet comings and goings have been pretty infrequent. The reason is because I've been getting migraines every. single. day. It's gotten to the point where I'll hurry up and do what I can in the morning and spend the rest of the day with my eyes closed and me lying on the couch.
I've been convinced I'm dying. Seriously.
I finally made an appointment to see my doctor, which I will do on Thursday. In the meantime, I'm trying to diagnose myself. One theory I have is hypothyroidism. I don't know if migraines are a part of it, but hypothyroidism runs in my family and I've had a bunch of other symptoms that go along with it. I'm constantly tired and any time I try to exert myself, I get sick and I need to sleep. I woke up the other night because I stopped breathing. You know, stuff like that.
So, why am I telling you this? Besides the fact I've been AWFUL as far as keeping up with blogs and my friends, I've also come up with a new theory which has meant a pretty drastic change to my life.
Some things you don't know about me:
I love to cook, and I like to cook from scratch. I like to make my own cheese, butter, candles, jellies. I like to can my own foods, garden, everything. So the theory I came up with has to do with food. I think my body is intolerant to carbs and starches.
The reason I think I'm intolerant to that stuff is because last saturday I tried my theory out and only had eggs, cheese, meat, and fruits and veggies. But then I went to a party that night. And as is typical for all parties, the main foods were carbs and starches. That whole day I was feeling awesome, but after eating the party fare, I was sick again. Horribly, horribly sick. My stomach actually balloons so much, I look like I'm six months pregnant. My husband laughs because it looks so ridiculous. But believe me, it's painful.
So yesterday, I went on a shopping spree to completely restock my pantry cupboard and refrigerator. I'm so excited! You should see my pantry cupboard. I'm seriously showing it off to guests now. They laugh at me. Because I think eating real, healthy food is important, I'm thinking of sharing some recipes on the blog. What do you guys think? Would you be interested? Maybe on Wednesdays or something?
I also bought a food processor and a coffee grinder so I can make my own almond flour! Hehehehe! I can't wait! Because I can't really live without cake. I love cake. Just not cake made out of nasty, processed "enriched" flour that makes me sick.
By the way, just to prove to you why I think I'm right, by this time (because this is such a long post), I would have felt the first little inklings of a migraine, and I don't.
Coincidence? I think not. :)
