Health Update Thursday(8/18)

I must admit, this Health Update Thursday will not be as eventful as the last one, but I did promise to keep you up to date, so here I am keeping that promise!! :)

Since last week, things started looking a little down again, but not for the reasons you might think; I woke up yesterday morning with my body nearly screaming at me, "Toms headed into town! BEWARE!"

Seriously, you know how older people predict hurricanes just by their body alone? That's how it felt, except instead of hurricane Billy, or Susie, or Joseph, it's Tom that's imminent o.O

Aside from that, a few new health-related points that happened this week:

*I gave up all dairy products. Yes, this cheese lovin', goat milk drinking, yogurt eating girl has given up dairy. Dairy aids in causing inflammation in the body, and because of the pain I've already been experiencing, dairy just exacerbates the situation.

*Like dairy, I gave up sugar. Okay, I didn't give it up entirely (you really CAN'T give it up entirely because it's in everything), but I cut it out considerably. It also aids in inflammation, and if I can cut down on the horrible pain I've been having, bye bye sugar!

*I started walking! I was walking pretty good for the first two or three days, but then I started lagging a little bit. As my sister likes to call it, I look like "a defective webble-wobble." LOL

I was supposed to go down to Dekalb and spend the weekend there this week partying with my friend who just turned 21, but unfortunately with me getting more tired with each passing day and everything else that doesn't seem to be going away, I think it's going to be a quiet weekend at home.

Honestly though, I can't say I'm too disappointed because I'm just so damn tired! All I want to do is sleep all the time.

Speaking of which, I think I might take my own advice and get some ZzZzZz's.

Hey Kayla,
I had no idea that dairy & sugar caused inflammation. Did you learn this from the new doctor? I hope and pray for you that all this will help in healing you! Keep us posted.
