Found out my body can’t process fructose, lactose, fructooligosaccharides, galactooligosaccharides, sorbitol, mannitol, xylitol, and maltitol.
This means my favorite food Artichoke, is no more. No more sugar-free cinnamon gum, watermelon, peaches, persimmons, dairy, gluten, onion, garlic, some coffee, pizza (even gluten-free), salsa, Italian dressing, plus many other things.
Plus side I have not felt sick after eating for the past 24 hours.
I have to eat Low Fodmap forever and ever but today I made low fodmap approved vanilla cupcakes with a low fodmap frosting that tastes better than any frosting I’ve ever had! I so got this! Just another bump in Kat’s crazy stomach and intestine journey.
Today on January 2nd of 2023, I am still coming to terms with being diagnosed autistic at the age of 47.
Yesterday was a rough day for me. Yes, the start of 2023, but I realized how sensitive and rigid I am and had this momentary breakdown over feeling attacked in a situation others would not have taken as I did. That being said, the floodgates opened, and I felt as though I ruined every relationship in my past.
So, as I did many moons ago, I will use this platform to write about my journey. To get back into writing for me and hopefully help others along the way. I’m not broken, and I hope to see that as this journey continues.
Today began the first day of medications along with vitamins. Oh so many pills taken today. The silver lining is I am going to be feeling better. I’m so over my health restricting me from the life I want to live.
