...finishing the Girl Scout cookies my mom sent me 2 days before my blood work came back positive, not worrying about cross contamination when I'm eating somewhere besides my own kitchen (as a college student that happens a lot), dining hall cookies, being able to eat with my friends on campus, orange chicken, not stressing about "I can't eat that," not checking all the ingredients on anything I'll finish in 4 weeks, not having to buy more expensive oats.
Worst thing.... gluten reactions!
I'm trying to stay positive as I start back on gluten during the most stressful three-four weeks of my semester for my endoscopy. I've got 4 tests next week, a dance performance that I'm in charge of the publicity for, a term paper, determining my summer plans, seeing if my boyfriend (my main supporter) is transferring. Yes, a lot of first world problems but that's my life.
The plan is to maintain a positive attitude, keep track of how I'm feeling through the whole process by tracking food and journalling, eating tons of probiotics and protein (seemed to help with gluten reactions before diagnosis), maintaining exercise, and just living my life as best I can with poisoning myself.
