I'm just trying to find my way.
I've had health issues for over three years now. Skin discoloration, digestive issues, fatigue, nail fungus and pimples and boils galore. It's an embarrassing list of flaws I try to hide from everyone I meet with socks, coffee and makeup. Over the years, I've attempted to treat these problems separately, but last week, I found an article online, which suggested that these separate issues could all be reactions to particular foods that become inflamed when you have the delightfully entitled ailment, Leaky Gut. I won't try to explain it. I'm no Gastroenterologist. But I'll say that there might be some holes in my intestines, which need time away from certain foods in order to mend. So I'm trying this thing where I avoid——among sugar, alcohol and caffeine——grains. All grains, even quinoa and corn and brown rice! And, nuts and beans. It has been two days. I do feel better, I think. Anyway, I just wanted to say to you that I am no expert. In anything really. I read what I read. I believe what I believe. But trust me, I want to be open. I realize I look like a hypocrite now for my last entry is literally called "WHOLE GRAINS ARE GOOD FOR YOU". I apologize for the aggressive all CAPS. Grains——even whole grains——among a few other triggers, are potentially what has been causing much of my discomfort these past three years. So I just wanted to say to you that if my foot was made of avocados, sweet potatoes and spinach, I'd have it in my mouth this very moment.
