Yeah, it's been a while. What can I say? I haven't been moved by the spirit, hence the lack of posts. Lately, I've been feeling it nudging me... (Big Man, is that you?)
Warning: this is gonna be gross. Just putting it out there.
Last week I went to see my ND (naturopathic doctor) for a follow up visit. My original ND is on maternity leave, so I actually saw one of her covering doctors. Let's call her M. At one point during my visit M asked me if she could "fix" one thing about my health, what would it be? I immediately told her my food allergies. So M suggested that I have my gut studied - how efficiently is it digesting and assimilating the food I eat, etc. I agreed; hey, if it gets me eating bread and pasta again, who am I to complain?
How do you have your gut studied, I hear you ask. Well, here's the answer, and it's gross: you send a lab some stool samples for analysis. That's right, Poop in a Box.
I just threw up in my mouth thinking about it. Therefore, I shall spare you the details, save to say that I have not felt so undignified... ever. Cleaning my kids' poopy behinds is *nothing* compared to this. Ugh, just.... gross. Ick. Repulsive.
I feel bad for the people who analyze the samples. Talk about a shitty job... ba DUM bum! (sorry, couldn't resist)
Please, please, please let this course of treatment work...
