So a couple of weeks ago I realized I was reacting to fish. I’ve gotten much more sensitive since the pregnancy, and haven’t been able to keep my symptoms under control. They’re NOTHING like they used to be, but they’re still not fun. I’m pretty arthritic in the morning (I can’t really use my hands for the first couple of hours), and my big toe is really bugging me. Then there’s the fact I’m itchy, weepy, and generally unhappy.
Again, this is nothing like it used to be. But it’s not as good as I was doing before the pregnancy.
A week ago I went back to my original elimination diet. Green vegetables and meat. No fruit, no honey, nothing. It’s been really hard. My sugar cravings have arrived and they’re worse than they were when I cut out cane sugar.
I caved last night after 7 days and had 3 apples. I was feeling better yesterday, my mood finally went up. Today my eyes are puffy and my mood had dipped 3 points (I rate my mood out of 10 everyday). So fruit is out. Looks like I have to stick to my green veggies and meat diet. It sucks. It really sucks. And the cravings suck, and the arthritis sucks and the mood especially sucks. Having an autoimmune disorder is terrible.
But I do believe that I’ll be better in a month, if that’s all I eat. So I’ll updated you guys later and see if I can get my body under control again.
