So the verdict is in, and I’m not gluten intolerant and I don’t have celiac disease. That’s a big relief. However, I do have ulcers and a hernia which is the cause for all of my tummy woes. The Dr. put me on Nexium, but after a couple weeks I’ve had to come off due to the side effects I experienced. So, now I’m managing with diet and exercise. They are supposing around 3 months to heal, and I’m optimistically looking forward to the day I’ve got no more digestive woes. At least the problem has been identified and verified so no more guessing as to what’s up. I don’t know why after 3 years my primary care Dr. couldn’t figure it out. But the specialist did an endoscopy and we are all on the same page.
My family is not so into my diet changes anymore. They are not gonna do the bland thing. So, I’ll just keep serving what they like and do what I need to do to feel better.
