"Project time with me has been nonexistent. Until recently."
Usually, we need to do more. We need to check our routines, adjust our environment, or examine where we're focusing our attention.
I've been spending the morning researching ways to speed up my recovery process after being fed a "gluten-free" burrito with a white sauce made from flour on it. I knew within an hour that I felt wrong, and contacted the restaurant to double-check. Sure, enough... now I get to deal with the rest of my symptoms.
For those who don't know much about gluten-intolerance, or you have weird friends who follow a gluten-free diet, take a look at the linked article and see what kinds of symptoms we get to deal with. The last time I went through this, I became extremely depressed and lethargic and all my joints flared up until I could hardly move. I felt like an 80-yr old woman for about a week and spent another week totally exhausted from the wreckage.
I'm still in the early phases right now: mostly the stomach and intestinal upset and the weird kind of brain fog that makes me dizzy, blurry around the edges, and totally unable to focus. I hope that the rest of it will be less severe, but I'll be on broth and water the next few days.
Please be kind to your gluten-free friends. Most of us do this for a reason. And you can bet your sweet little digestive systems I won't be eating at that restaurant again.
