I’m over the sad. Mostly. Went to a couple of V E R Y sweaty yoga classes and got all that gluten out of my system doing things like this:
Only I was a) not on the beach, b) in color, c) listing to the side a lot, and d) saying to my friend next to me yeeOOOOWWWfffuuuUUUuckkk helpI’mgoingsideways!
Today my back is a little tender.
So — in the comments on that last post, the subject of chemical issues came up, and I’ve obviously been giving that some thought for a long time. I’ve taken medication for depression before, and it was really pretty great until it just quit working. I am thinking that the chemical issue is more than likely a gluten issue. I want this (the gluten thing) to be all in my head, but last Friday at work (after the Thursday night cheese pizza), my eyes were so swollen all day that my eyelids disappeared. Also, I gained four pounds overnight, my hands got swollen and arthritic and I had a headache, cried a lot and wanted to kill people.
No more cheese pizza. Ever.
Now I’m in that annoying phase where whenever someone else has a health problem, I’m all, You should go off gluten for a couple of weeks! I predict that soon I will have no more friends. (looking at watch)
Except maybe Laura.
