Food Sensitivities Update

When I first started having food issues, it seemed everything was making me sick. Indeed, I thought I must be allergic to corn because there are very few things corn is not in.

Also, food smelled awful. Theatre popcorn smelled like urine. Other milk products smelled rancid. The bread aisle smelled like a brewery and made me feel ill.

Imagine sitting in a theatre surrounded by people eating food that smells like urine. I stopped going for awhile.

Since starting Plaquenil in December and going completely gluten free, my sensitivity to yeast has reduced and things smell like food again! Vinegar still hurts my tummy, but I believe that is due to the lack of moisture from having Sjögren's Syndrome being combined with acid.

I seem to be very sensitive to precooked grocery store bbq chickens. But that could be gluten contamination.

I've been tested for Celiac's and it came out negative, but I could be intolerant. My symptoms are in line with intolerance rather than allergy. I'll spare you the details.

I successfully ate a Gluten Free vegan pizza, that I added meat to, a couple of weeks ago with no ill effects. Next, I plan to try again to see if it was just a fluke only I'll buy the premade crust and just add my own toppings like goat cheddar. I will try a gf pizza from a pizza place with a light amount of regular mozzarella in about a month or two to see how my milk sensitivity is. I've never been a big egg eater, so I'm not in a hurry on that one. If I can have a gf pizza once in awhile, I'll be super happy.

I just thought I'd share an update on my food situation.

Ciao,

A Lot of Bullspit - 2020 ROW80 R3-W5

This week has had a lot of bullspit in it. Shortly after my last trip to buy reno supplies, I discovered mold in my bathroom. While that's not shocking, it's pretty much because they appear to have left wet drywall in the wall and covered the wall with another layer of drywall instead of properly repairing it after a leak. Geniuses. This is a mixed bag. It means I may have to do the tub area sooner than I expected. It is the same wall as the annoying peeling paint, so that's kind of good. I may just need to replace much of the wall, which is about 1.5 drywall boards because it's a small room. Cost wise, the wall repair isn't so bad. I'm not looking forward to having to deal with it, but I acquired the PPE gear for it and the mold removal supplies. Now, here's where the project may change substantially. I was originally planning to install a tub surround over the tile and then use the Rust Oleum tub restore stuff, but if there is mold in the wall, it's li

ROW80 2020 R4 - GOALS

I've gotten zero writing done recently, however, I had other pressing things.  HOME As my new bed frame was due for arrival last Friday (more on this later), I hauled ass and purged a bunch more stuff from my home. I brought a full carload to donation and started loading up again. I also dealt with my old mattress, which I'm repurposing for a couch. Now, I didn't fully complete it as I haven't figured out all the pieces, but I did get it cut up appropriately and moved out of my bedroom. I'm currently sewing it back together. As for my bedroom, I was able to do a major declutter and access areas I haven't been able to in months. But that area now has bathroom stuff in it. There is more to do, but I'm really happy with my progress of late. I've cut myself numerous times on the couch project including my heel finding a tiny piece of glass, my palm finding a wayward staple, my knuckle finding who knows what, my one thumb having a run in with a box cutter, an

Catching My Breath - 2020 ROW80 R3-C6

 I've tried writing this post numerous times, but I needed a break. A long one. I've been mega stressed out and depressed, so I have been taking a little breather. I was feeling broken, but the experience has forced me to slow down and relax. I've gotten some help including medication for it and I am feeling much better. I'm feeling like myself more with each passing day. I'm sleeping better and have energy again.  I have been reducing my social media time. Especially Facebook. Actually, I enjoy Instagram much more. FITNESS I've been scooting and I'm getting back into skating. It's often hard to get out because of rain. Eventually, I want to do tricks on my skates. This skater may not be in derby anymore, but she's still a skater ;) I have a ton of plans for cross training once winter is here. I'll be hitting up outdoor rinks if they are available, but I'm also going to work on off skate skills that will help me get to doing tricks later on.
