Oh yes... o yay! Something else...

So my husband and I were taking an adventure to the Social Security Office in Minneapolis... well I told my husband that he married a Connors and he knows our luck with cars... well, actually we ARE pretty lucky. Our cars make it LONG past the point of "time to get a new car." You may need to pull over a few times and put out a fire under the hood; yes, you may even need to shut the car off at every red light in order to prevent it from overheating or shutting off, but our cars stay faithful up to their point of death. Anyways... the car broke down, as you may have guessed. Luckily, right near a Pizza Luce. So we got to eat dinner as a family while we waited for rush hour to end so we could rush home before our car gave out.
For those of you who don't know, I eat a very healthy diet. My diet consists of very little carbs (except chocolate, sprout bread, and potatoes). Well lemmie tell you... I got SO SICK after eating this pizza. It was the veggie pizza with soy cheese, so dairy was not the issue. So then I did some reasearch on the endometriosis diet and I come to find out that a very high percentage of people who have endometriosis end up developing food intolerences. The most popular one is... duh duh duh (dramatic music)... wheat!

Tragic I know! So I am really fed up (no pun intended) with being sick all the time and in pain all the time. I am going to try this endometriosis diet and really stick to it. Here is what it consists of:

Foods Not To Eat
  • Red Meat
  • Dairy
  • Wheat
  • Sugar
  • Caffeine (... yeah right...)
  • Processed Foods
  • Additives and Preservatives
I would love for people to hold me accountable to this. After all my research an extreme change in diet was the only option with the most beneficial and consistent results that I have read. I would also like prayer and encouragement because I lose hope and motivation so easily. I feel like I have been trying to feel good for years now... but I am not giving up!
