Hello Precious friends,
Quick update on me, my costochondritis, and my Celiac Disease journey. Thanks to everyone for all the comments all over the blog. I know I'm not writing here anymore, but I love you all and just had to post!!
I'm doing much better. I have rough days and good days. But my roughest days this month are better than my best days 6 months ago, so no complaining here. The HCL (stomach acid) and a digestive enzyme called Ancient Legacy Digestive Enzyme have helped my chest pain more than I could ever imagine. It's been the most amazing gift to my health...and my sanity! I have to take it with even the smallest bite of food I eat, but none the less, it's helped immensely. I'm eating only a few foods that my body will handle, but I don't mind that either. I'm still having to take mag/cal every 4 hours or the left side of the body goes numb. But last month, it was every 2 hours. So I'll take it. Still struggling with headaches and the runs. lol. fun. But it's all good. Taking one day at a time, getting stronger each month.
I have been working with a dietitian that is AMAZING. He can do all his work long distance. He's like Dr. House. I've been so impressed with him. We do my blood work where I live, the results are shipped to him, and we do our meetings over the phone. So no matter where you live in the US- check him out if you're interested...Dr. Ron. He works not only with Celiacs, but with tons of people who have medical issues no one can figure out. He's been such a gift to me...he looks a little creepy on his website, lol- but he's brilliant. =)
If you want to visit me on My Celiac Diva website, come on over! However, this site, in all honesty, is purely a business move, it's not my heart or sharing what's going on in my life. I'm working on trying to earn money no matter how my body feels. And don't let my crazy energy in the show fool you. I don't feel that good. Being an actress comes in handy from time to time. lol. However, my insides do feel that good. I know how that one day soon my body will catch up to the joy I feel. I'm able to talk with much less pain as of about 2 weeks ago, and even wear necklaces...and move easier....wow...it's been so weird. Almost overwhelming.
Anyhoo- that's me. Hugs to you all. You are close to my heart. I don't check this site anymore, so if you'd like to chat, maybe leave a comment on my new crazy site. It's a joy to hear from you.
Blessings and Healing,
