Speaking of food...I want a piece of bread. It's that fun time of the month and I'm avoiding chocolate because of the histamine thing. Anyone know of a bread or have a recipe for one that is gluten, dairy, soy free and low histamine? Just want something like that. Hmmm...
How about pancakes?
I stay positive, but have gone through periods that I am way beyond frustrated. The hardest periods are the flares that follow big improvement...those have been hardest on my family too.
Kids are tough...they are likely more sad that Moms feeling sick than about missing good times with you this summer. Here is what I did. Tell them age appropriate truth and when you have a good day...make sure to carve out time for them...even if that means a hookie day...save an hour or two to make sure school work gets done so they don't fall behind
Six months really is still early days. You will continue to improve. Try (one that I'm still learning...each day) to reduce stress...guilt about what hasn't been completed or time you were unable to do fun things will not help. In fact...stress can cause inflammation! Take a tub, go for a short walk by yourself with an iPod...read a book...and hang in there...sometimes all we can do is hang on!
