CAUTION: Do not read this if you are squeamish about bodily functions.
First off, since I’m sure my dedicated followers are worried about me….HAHAHAHAHA! Anyway, first off, my pain is much better now. I feel like I can perform all my activities to almost the level I used to. (That is if I were to get back into shape.) Changes to my diet and chiropractic care are proving to be the answer for me.
So in July I went on a trip to Florida and ended up with some EXPLOSIVE diarrhea. I thought it was something in the water. But it didn’t go away when I returned, and in fact my symptoms increased to include nausea and decrease in appetite as well. I got tested for parasites (this process is disgusting by the way, I recommend avoiding it at all costs) and the tests came back negative.
Now what? I’m waiting for test results to see if I have inflammatory bowel disease. (This is an equally, if not more so, disgusting test). I’m hoping for positive results at this point because if it comes back negative then what? Is all this nausea, decrease in appetite, watery poops, hip pain and general discomfort all in my head?
I should find out in a couple of weeks. On a positive note, at least my lack of appetite has helped me lose 15 pounds!
Here is a photo of my cat I am watching for friends for about a year or so while they are off conquering the world. (This is for everyone who clicks on this site hoping for cat photos).
