I’ve been quiet for a while because my abdomen has been acting up yet again. Yep … things were going so well for most of the last year, but Crohn’s has reared it’s ugly ugly head again and I’m suffering as a result.
It all started about a month ago … I bought a bread machine in mid-February because I wanted to start making healthy breads for my husband and I (even though I really don’t eat much bread or grains) and it seemed like the first few loaves that I made didn’t bother my stomach/abdomen at all … but towards the end of March I decided to try making my very first (and maybe my last) loaf of Pumpernickel bread and well … it seems that that turned out to be too much for my system to handle.
The Pumpernickel must have been quite strong because my husband would get stomach cramps if he ate a couple of pieces of pumpernickel in one day … for me all it took was half of a piece of bread!
Oh and the pain is still hanging around. I wasn’t completely pain free, but for most of the last year, my Crohn’s symptoms and the abdominal pain that I get from it was very tolerable, but once I ate that pumpernickel bread I was back in pretty much the worst pain.
Now I’m doing everything I can to calm my symptoms down. I’m not eating any breads or grains and I”m pretty much just eating baked or boiled chicken, potato and very mild bland foods that have never really bothered my digestive system in the past. I’m also drinking Aloe Vera Gel and talking acidophilus tablets as that can help calm the symptoms down too.
I’d rather just be concentrating on my websites. I want to change the theme for this one … I also want to try to find the time to check out seo elite … maybe now that I’m not feeling well would be the perfect time to sit back and do some reading and learn more about site SEO. I have several websites and because of that I never have time to learn a lot of new things anymore because I’m so busy just maintaining them.
Anyway … wish me luck on getting this stomach/ abdominal pain settled down again. I didn’t realize how much better I’d been feeling in the last year until the last few weeks when I began to feel so bad again. It’s awful. I hope I can get this under control again quickly.
