My little slice of limbo

Me, Life, Fandom
I debated with myself if I wanted to post something or not and finally decided that it was the easier thing.

I dropped of LJ like 1 month ago, even before my birthday (thanks by the way for all the great birthday wishes and greetings) because I just wasn't well enough and in severe pain. At first I thought I ate something wrong, then it was pretty clear that it was something different. I got it checked out by a doctor, had a blood test done and still no answer.
Since my stomach didn't get better and I actually have a history of stomach problems since childhood (And a few other physical issues. I was the sickly kid) I decided to go back to my childhood diet when it was really bad: Nothing with animal fat of any kind, nothing dairy, no pork at all, nothing with sugar (limited glucose, no saccharose), nothing with vinegar, no vegetable in the cabagge or bean family, no citrus fruits or anything to acidic, no nuts, no spices other than salt and (a bit) pepper, nothing roasted or fried...
I'm honest enough to admit that one of the reasons I'm full-figured is that when it got better and I was finally allowed to eat like a normal person I went totally overboard.

Good news is, since around last Saturday I'm actually able to keep the food in and the pain is down to managable without medication and keeps getting better.
Given the happenings in the fandom I thought it was a good idea to say, I'm still here, I'm relatively well and I hope the same for you all as well.
I followed the whole situation with Jared here and on FB and Twitter, wrote him something, and I'm just so glad, 1) how great this fandom has reacted, and 2) to see that other fans had the same emotional reaction that you can't really explain to others

Sorry to hear you haven't been feeling very well. Glad to hear, though, that you have it more under control and that your condition is getting a little bit better. I hope it remains that way. Glad to see you back around LJ.

I expect it to get better. These happen for a while and then I'm without serious problems for the next 2-3 years. Thanks

What is actually left to eat after you eliminate all that? Not being sarcastic, I really want to know! :D

In the past I ate a lot of soja and tofu. It's not that I don't like it, it's just that it's different when you always eat the same because you want to or because there is no choice.
There are a ton of tuber and vegetables to basics like potatoes, rice, bread, noodles (not for me, I detest noodles), eggs, mushrooms.
For fruits everything that doesn't taste sour or bitter. Every fruit that tastes particulary sweet only in low doses
In the dead animal category there is everything aquatic that is not fat, lean meats like chicken, turkey, beef, depending the time of the year game
At least for me no salads because all my salad sauces are to acidic
For sweetness there is honey, stevia or glycerin without any problems.

I always have a very bread-heavy diet so that is not a problem, but without spices, herbs and condiments and so much boiled or steamed it's just all so bland.

At least you can still have chicken! I don't know how I'd live without it.

It doesn't sound like you have celiac disease, which would react badly to breads and anything else made with regular flour. I hope someday the doctors figure out what it is!

Celiac would be a desaster for me, I love grey bread so much.

They did found the reason out after years of different medical diets when I was still a child through exclusion. It's actually a combination effect of 2 different diseases, one genetic that makes me intolerant to specific foods and a general problem with the peristalsis not always working the way it's supposed to.

I've had something going on with me for years, which I need to see another round of doctors about to get to the bottom of it. There is the chance that it could be celiac disease, because I have a lot of the symptoms, but I'm praying that's not it. I eat so many things with gluten in them! Just don't know how I would be able to wean myself off of it. And the gluten-free stuff is so expensive, argh!

Anyway, I'm glad you were able to find a diet that works for you, but sorry that you have to give up some favorites in order to feel better.

I'm glad you're feeling better, dear.
