I was just diagnosed with lymphocytic colitis- it's been a rough 4 years figuring out what I can eat and what I can't eat and how much of what in supposed to eat but having an actual diagnosis is weirdly comforting. Crushing chronic illness every dayyyyy! Be excellent to each other and party on!

I’m sorry to hear about that! But I am very glad you have an answer. It really does help in some ways! Good luck with this new adventure!

Jenn! I just wanted to share with you that, because I have known you I was able to care for the POTS patient I had last week. Hardly any staff understood what POTS is, and I was disappointed by it. I've learned a lot about the experience you have had with this disorder, from just loosely meandering through your blog, which is much more valuable than just having a clinical perspective. I wanted to thank you for sharing! Stay brave, and congratulations to you and your husband!!!!

OH MY GOSH OH MY GOSH! THIS IS THE BEST THING EVER! You have just made my life. I’m so glad I was able to help out in a small way! Sometimes I feel like I’m just venting to myself on here so to hear that it’s helping others is the sweetest thing you could ever tell me. Thank you so much! I appreciate YOU!

Since I’m having a crazy time with health lately, and I have a lot of time on my hands, I’m making a food/exercise lifestyle for me that hopefully will turn things around! Today I had gluten and dairy free banana bread for breakfast, kale and chickpea salad for lunch, a banana blueberry spinach chocolate dairy free shake for a snack, and chorizo spaghetti casserole/pie for dinner also gluten and dairy free. On top of that, I’m walking about 3 miles everyday and doing physical therapy. YAY! :)
