I have three days off from my Full Time job and I don’t know. I am feeling a little under the weather and being a psychology graduate I decided to delve in a bit into how and what I am feeling.
On Saturday I had my follow up appointment with my doctor who is overseeing my health. It turns out I am allergic to wheat and eggs. Therefore I had to change my meals which I have to be honest is extremely hard. I was first told about this at the end of August in Summer. I started off my detox – as you first have to clean your body off the harmful substances that you have taken – in my case the wheat and egg proteins.
I started this process well and was taking my pills which included a vitamin pill which gave me loads of energy, a livercare pill to clean my liver and another pill to clean my body. I was doing great but on the 12 th september I had my wisdom teeth removed so my detox took a back turn from then. I stopped my pills as my throat closed, I could not swallow any pill properly. It was like I was fearful of swallowing pills which I am not surprised with as my mum suffers from this fear too. But anyways after my operation which was so painful as I removed both the top wisdom, the right bottom wisdom tooth and a bottom molar from my left. The healing process was so painful, I could fill my stitches and eating was the hardest thing I had to do! I went back to eating wheat and eggs as I made scrambled eggs as they were soft to eat. And white bread without the crust and wheat pasta. Clearly of course this was my fault as all this could have been avoided.
And after that I started saying I guess if I take some foods with wheat or egg it would not be a problem. But it turns out it is and on Saturday I was told that I must go on a detox again from wheat and eggs and have to be strict for two months! I also have been given new medication which are liquids rather than pills which do the same thing.
I don’t know this is such a big challenge. I have to say bye to my hamburgers from McDonalds. Fast food outlets are out of the question, even pizzas are a no go. It is going to take time to get used to it, to prepare meals and be satisfied but I am trying. Just this morning I took two slices of toast – yes the bread is wheat free – I took chicken pieces, lettuce, tomatoes and cheese.
I just have to get used to it and face it as my new reality.
