Godsdammit. Sure enough, 10 minutes after I take my vitamins, I feel a lump in my throat and a brick in my stomach. I feel like one of those two just instantly makes me feel like total crap.

 

Lunch time: I don’t feel hungry at all. Doc just called. Wants to see me right now. somedays, I’m thankful I don’t have a day job (except my photography)… until I see my bank account. That’s always a painful, tear inducing incident. Anyway, off to Doc’s.

Whatever he did (lots of chiro, some weight lifting, more pills and a weird electro-pulse thing… MG33, i think it’s called?) made me hungry as hell. I still feel really bloated and my knees are stiff, but not as bad. Now hungry, with $30 left to my name. I have to go buy more groceries. Arg.

Breakfast:

1 tsp chunky pb, 1/2 tsp nutella

coffee, 2 splenda, splash of almond milk.

No stomach aches so far (well… just the ones I get when I eat oatmeal), no diarrhea… Thank gods!

shredded chili chicken

green peppers, 1/2 jalapeno + cabbage sauteed in coconut oil with garlic

2 cups unsweet tea

First day of no diarrhea and no shooting stomach pains. Only a little bloating and stomach ache from the wheat. I will return to paleo/primal. I’m happier without the bread and grain.

 

Today I didn’t take any vitamin D or iron. This is the only thing I did differently. I actually had energy, slept and felt functional. I guess it helps I wasn’t shitting my brains out, yeah?

I haven’t heard from the Doc lately. I’m going to call him and see if he needs me.

Treatment Day 9

Took a melatonin to sleep.

Knocked out around 1 am and woke up about 8:30. Really groggy. I folded laundry and puttered around the house until 9:30.

1/2 c Fauxtmeal, 1/4 c egg whites with salt and pepper

Coffee w/ sf hazelnut

 

Around 12-1 pm my stomach is really hurting. When I went to the bathroom, more liquid diarrhea. It was really dark green, almost black.

 

Lunch:

Spring mix, 5 strawberries, annies shitake sesame dressing

 

More diarrhea. I don’t know what’s causing it. Hubby is having stomach problems too. But for the past 2 or 2 1/2 weeks, I feel really icky. I just don’t want to eat anything, because I know I’ll end up in the bathroom. My skin is really dry and I have a lot of random blackheads appearing. This isn’t normal for me at all. My skin is usually ok unless it’s close to my period, which it’s not right now.

Also, my hair is breaking and falling out more than usual and it gets really oily fast. I now feel really nauseous. Like a lump in my throat. Guess what? I just took the vitamin D and the iron. Is the vitamin d causing this? is it taking them together?

 

Dinner:

8oz pork tenderloin (lemon and herb rub)

1 sweet potato, 1/4 c. sweet corn

1 tbsp grassfed butter, unsalted.

Salt & pepper. Unsweet tea.

Iron & vitamin D supplement

 

Craving sweets or chocolate. Lips are so dry. I feel kind of energetic, but I just want to be alone with my husband. I have a shoot tomorrow. I’m just not too thrilled. I feel very blah about it. I’m not sure why. I’ve been looking forward to working and being creative. I just can’t turn it on right now.

Shower… Sleep.

Treatment Day 8

Sleep: 2 am    Woke up at 9:45a

1/4c turkey sausage, 3 sausage links (turkey)

1 c. coffee, 1 tbsp sf hazelnut syrup

Vitamin D

 

Lunch:

Power green blend, 1/2 apple, water all blended.

Dinner:

8 oz chicken breast, cooked in coconut oil and seasoned with garlic and herbs

Bok choy, spinach, brussel sprouts, 1 tbsp coconut oil, 1 clove garlic, 2 glasses red wine

Vitamin D, Iron supp.

 

FUCK. I felt great until I took that vitamin D and iron supp. Now I’m nauseous again. I’m really tired of this. I just want to eat paleo and be friggin normal. I wanted to work out but I lost track of time and my legs are just really really swollen and very stiff. Anytime I drive the husbands jeep my legs get super swollen. I think it’s because of how I have to sit with my ankle crooked.

Yeah. I’m over the liquid diarrhea and terrible stomach pains. I think it’s all the oil, but the doc said to “overdose on coconut oil”. I’m not even close, but tonight’s dinner just did me in. It sucked all my energy out. I’m tired, cranky and I’m just going to bed. I’m going to make tea and lie down.

 

Evening: Blackberry tea (caffeine free) & 1/2 tsp honey.

Treatment Day 5

Holy massive headache, batman. It hurt so bad that I couldn’t open my eyes all the way, so I laid in bed and watched a show and ended up dozing off.

I ate, drank a cup of coffee and still not getting rid of the headache. Maybe some Aleve will help. I definitely can’t do a veggie breakfast. It just turns my stomach to think of it. Maybe I’ll try a green smoothie with an apple tomorrow.

I took 3 drops of the Bio D supplement and 1 iron pill.

Bfast:

Coffee, sf hazelnut syrup, almond milk

2 eggs, 1/4c egg whites

1tbsp coconut oil, sriracha, salt and pepper

1 oz shredded chicken.

 

Lunch:

I am TIRED of salad! Every recipe I look up for vegan, it contains gluten, bread, or oats. I want meat so bad. All the salad I’m eating just isn’t hitting the spot, nor is it filling. As soon as I eat that, about 30 minutes later I feel an empty tummy again.

3:30 – 1 iron pill

argo hibiscus tea sangria (non alc.),

spring salad mix, 1/2 green pepper, 8 small strawberries, 1/2 avocado, walden farms raspberry vinaigrette and a little salt on the avocado.

Treatment Day 4

Woke up at 10:15a

 

FOOD LOG:

Breakfast:

2 eggs, pam spray – microwaved

1 scoop shakeology (click here for nutrition information), 1 1/2 tsp chunky pb, 1 medium banana

 

I just couldn’t do all veggies this morning. The thought of cooking a lot, or having a salad just turned my stoamch. my brain is still really alert, not foggy at all. I don’t feel tired, even though it took a little while to wake up. Last night I felt really irritable, no real reason. Just grumpy. I was just aggravated with everyone, except my husband thankfully.

 

Lunch:

10 butter lettace cups

1 chicken sausage

stewed tomatoes

 

5pm – Doc called me, he needs to see me.

6pm – Arg. Veggies all weekend. I love veggies, don’t get me wrong. But I want meat.

So apparently, the foamy butt bubbles meant something worse than what the doc expected. I have a “leaky gut”? I’d heard that term before, but I have no idea what it meant. It seems like there’s holes in my intestines? I tried to research this to really understand. The only things I can find are people saying to eat more probiotics, and gobble down yogurt. Yum. Sounds great. Note the sarcasm? Also, I apparently have a bacterial infection somewhere in my body, severely low vitamin d, calcium and low iron (anemic). Also, he says I’m close to border-line diabetic, which I’ve been close to borderline diabetic since I was 7 or 8. … bout as long as I can remember.

He still thinks he can fix it all. I hope so. I want to lose this friggin weight. Bought more veggies. I’m looking forward to grilling portobellas.

 

Dinner:

2 large portobella cups marinated in braggs aminos, cayenne and chili powder

Cooked in 1 tbsp coconut oil.

VERY big salad:

50/50 mix, baby kale, baby spinach, 1/2 avocado, 2 carrots, walden farms sesame dressing (GF), tonic water & pineapple dasani flavour.

Treatment Day 3

Ok. I’m hungry. Fasting again since 6pm last night. Doesn’t sound so bad, unless you see what I ate last night/yesterday. I feel antsy, but well rested. I slept really well last night and woke up really out of it around 8:30a. I laid back down until about 10, but didn’t really sleep. For the first time in a long time, my back didn’t hurt, and my body didn’t ache.

Doc has me on veggies only. No meat. This doesn’t sit well with me, considering the one thing I know about my body is that it needs meat. I tried being vegetarian, and oh god. That did not pan out well for me. Lets just try and be optimistic. I have to do some test today called a brain barrier test. I have to take some pills called GABA. I tried to research it online, but couldn’t really find anything pertinent to what I’m looking for.

Food Log:

Lunch:

Brussel sprouts, portobella mushrooms, garlic, red chilis, salt/pepper, yellow squash all sauteed in 1 tbsp coconut oil.

Dinner:

sauteed spinach, portobella mushroom sauteed in 1 tbsp coconut oil w/salt and pepper and red chili paste.

Spring salad mix, shredded carrot, 1 small home grown tomato, Annies papaya poppyseed dressing, 5 butter lettuce leaves (to wrap spinach and portobella mix).

GABA test @ 9:15p

10:20 – bathroom. Fast. Severe liquid diarrhea. Black and neon yellow. Straight liquid at first, and then it turned to foam. The water was frothy and when I pooped, it felt like bubbles was coming out. Stomach feels absolutely miserable.

2:45a – I think I got it all out of me. I feel exhausted but my mind feels sharp and alert. My eyes are really heavy, but I just feel like my brain is sharp as a tack. I have to try to sleep. I’m not sure how well that’ll work.
