And I'm no longer the happiest person in the world.
Back in April/May, my doctor told me my sinuses were all inflamed and that I should use a spray that had a steroid in it. That worked well, but I didn't want to keep taking it all the time. But as luck would have it, I didn't feel much of a need for it long. Sweet! Lucky break, right?
I've been noticing things are getting bad again recently, both with that and my airways being a little more reactive. I've had to use the inhaler more and I've at least thought about using the nose spray again. I've also had less energy than I did at the beginning of summer. I was all ready to blame it on allergies, but then I realized something.
May and June, I was on the paleo diet and avoided grains and dairy. In July I started eating some of that stuff again, and I've eaten wheat and dairy as I wanted to more and more recently.
You mean staying gluten free and dairy free really was making that big of a difference? I didn't mind it too much, but sometimes I just want to be lazy! And sometimes I just want REAL ice cream.
I blame the bloggers. This particular revelation is even more to be blamed on the incomparable Sew, whose recent post inspired me to do a little reading about thyroids... Leading to even further understanding of how these foods could make a difference, but also confirming that it would really be better for me to become one of those food freaks that avoids gluten and dairy.
So I will thank you for helping me to be healthier overall. But forgive me if I grumble a bit over lost pizza.
