Alright, alright, I give already!!! I will put aside my stubborness and rebellion and try to take care of myself… you see, at this moment, I am in intense pain. It’s my gut. Kiki really wanted me to describe how I felt – because the whole "I’m not sick, I feel well enough, I’m just in pain" wasn’t quite working for her. I told her, it’s like this: "My intestines feel like someone filled them with air, and now little men are running around in there with torches and spears." This is not the first time this has happened… it sent me nearly crawling into a doctor’s office back when we lived in Salt Lake City, and that doctor told me I probably had ‘Diverticulitis’. You notice the ‘probably’ and you know I’m not keen on doctors anyhow, so I just dealt with the pain and eventually it went away. It shows up now and then. This time it’s less intense than the bout that sent me to the doctor, but it’s lasted longer… yuck. So, I pulled out this book we have by "Kevin Tru*deau" titled Natural*Cures "they" don’t want you to kn*w about . I didn’t find the disease by name, but everything I’m dealing with – reflux, bloating,, obesity, irregularity, etc. etc….. in each one of the cases, ‘candida’ is listed as one of the probable causes. Candida, basically, is a yeast that naturally occurs in our gut but goes crazy if you eat too much sugar. All the gals I know at school – my sister among them – who have lost weight and feel immensly better have gone to the naturalist to get rid of their candida deal. So, it doesn’t surprise me, but I haven’t wanted to deal with ridding my life of all sugar. So, what, this is better??? Geez I’m a dork sometimes. Anyway, I am going to call him and make an appointment – then I will probably be whining a lot here about how I hate what I have to eat – or, actually, hate that I don’t get to eat the stuff I like and live on right now. Hope you bear with me.
p.s. Alan came home from work midday and took Kiki out for a "lunch date". How sweet is that?
