Just an update. I’m in the middle of a bad ‘flare’ of something. I’ve developed intolerances to corn and egg and any seeded vegetables, even heavily steamed. Nightshades have been completely eliminated, although paprika is in way more items than we realize. That is obviously making my life pretty complicated right now. Very complicated.
Yes, I have deleted all my posts here. IF I come back to blogging, I need an entirely fresh start. But I’m not sure if I am going to come back to blogging. It seems no matter what I post, I sometimes post controversial things that attracts people who love to attack. I don’t know if it’s me, the way the anonymity of the internet works for some people, or what. I do know that the hassle of that kind of interaction or the fear of when will it happen next…is not worth the stress to me. Certainly not now.
As I continue to work through this health issue, I’m going to have to decide if blogging for me is a help or a stressor. I won’t come back to regular blogging until I can put the negative aspects of it aside. I just don’t have room on my emotional plate for that. I’m sure you understand.
Maybe I’m not the kind of person best suited for blogging. Maybe keeping a private blog (just for me alone) works best, maybe no blogging, maybe by invitation alone. I just haven’t decided now because working a full time job and trying to monitor a very limited elimination diet and daily side effects…is all I can really handle right now. It’s extremely stressful, and yet stress aggravates all symptoms. It’s a real guessing game to a great extent.
I just wanted to give anyone still checking on me, an update. I appreciate those of you still here. As soon as I get a little better, consistent handle on my health, I hope to start visiting your blogs again. Much love to you.
p.s. if you are interested in being invited to a private blog, SHOULD I choose that path, please email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org. Provide your first name or Google user name, your blog’s name, and your blog url. I’ll keep as a reference should I go down that path. 🙂
