Well, it has been a while since my last post! Since early Feb in fact.
There have been a number of reasons for my absence. Firstly uni started back and I have been just plain busy. I decided in part to let this sit here, and come back when I had the time, or felt super inspired to write.
Secondly I was putting in effort to just feel better. It was confirmed that I have fructose intolerence (damn you!), so I’ve been following the low FODMAP diet as closely as I could to eleviate my symptoms. My GI doc also flagged a small possibility of small bacterial overgrowth (SIBO). This made me nervous, as I am not keen on taking meds if I can help it. I did think as close as only last week that it may well be SIBO as I would have liked my symptoms to be more improved, but I feel better as time goes on. I think taking a wait and see approach a while longer, whilst following FODMAP restrictions is the best option,
Lastly there has been considerable discussion over the last month or so about non medical/trained people becoming ‘experts’ and duping their followers. This is a concerning issue and I do not in anyway wish to contributw to the problem. So for the record, loud and clear:
I am not a medical expert, and I give no advice. This blog is for sharing my experience, and for giving mutual support to any followers. We are in this together. I’m feeling my way through. I follow other blogs, but I only take advice from properly trained medical staff. Please, take care, and do the same.
Hopefully I will be back soon, but in the mean time –
Feel well, do good, be happy. xo
