UPDATE: Another Addition, Another Disaster

The best thing I can say about this process of addition and re-elimination is: at least I know now how many foods were conspiring against my health and making me feel like shit. Thank you! I appreciate that! But seriously, I'm very surprised! Many, many of these foods were going into my body multiple times weekly, some daily (milk and cheese), or multiple times daily (milk for shizzle). WOW. Scary. No wonder, no wonder, no wonder!

Last night I had the gall to try pistachios. Mind you, this was a food that, prior to the elimination phase, I ate probably 2-3 times a week. Yikes. 

The first thing that happened was a headache, but! I had a very stressful day so I told myself with a wink and nod that the headache could have been coming anyway. LOL! 

This morning I was very groggy, moving in a fog, and am still sleepy. I only got 7 hours in but that isn't excuse enough for how sluggy I feel today. IN SPITE OF THAT, I went ahead and had some more pistachios after breakfast - it couldn't be them, could it? Really?

Yes.

Ten minutes later, headache. Damn it to hell.

Not that it really matters; honestly, I don't care anymore and will happily leave something out of my diet (that has already been out for 5 months, thank you very much) knowing that it's something my body rejects. I get it. 

What I'm hating now are the reactions themselves. Is that wrong? Probably, but dang it, going through the rejection and getting my body right again is awful, it's miserable, and somehow I keep teeing these introductions up to try it all over again. I must be nuts!

Pistachios, nuts - get it? Tee-hee.

Anyway, enough whining for today.

Once these symptoms clear I will, for whatever reason, be trying organic popcorn. Yes, it does exist. I'm pretty sure it's GMO but I couldn't find any that said it wasn't. So, it's worth a shot right? Ha ha! I make myself laugh.
