Celebration report

So far I have:

  • Ordered my favorite take-out.
  • Slept in.
  • Worn blue jeans on a Thursday.
  • Bought season one of Medium.

That’s a pretty decent celebration.

In other extremely personal news that you probably don’t want to hear about, I have manage to rid myself of two nemeses over the last year: asthma and IBS (aka: the poopmonster). Unfortunately, I didn’t follow the troubleshooter’s credo, and do one thing at a time, so I don’t know exactly what worked. I’m pretty sure quitting sugar did the poopmonster in. Exercise had something to do with the asthma, but I’m not that much fitter than I was a year ago. Not enough to explain 18 months without an asthma attack. If I were going to over-analyze, and I am, I would have a couple of theories. I could have just grown out of it; after all, I grew into it. I know a lot of people who developed asthma as adults, but I don’t know if it just “goes away” eventually. The second suspicion is supplements. About 18 months ago, I added extra vitamin D, flax seed oil, and pro-biotics to the heavy-duty multivitamin and C I already took.

The point of this all is that when you’re sick, it seems like you’re always going to be sick, and you just live with it. I believed I would never get better. Now I know I can. Next target: eczema. *scratches hands*
