When do you test?

Dear Reader,

I think I’ve developed food allergies.

No, seriously. I’ve never been allergic to anything edible until the last few years when things started bothering me but recently it’s gotten unreal.  I know some people who have gluten free diets, others who developed milk intolerance among other crazy things.

So when do you know it’s time to go to the doctor to see what you’re body is trying to tell you?

This is almost cliche to say, but I hate going to the doctor.  I don’t do it much.  I don’t look for problems.  I ignore broken bones unless they’re interfering with my life.  But I’m to the point where I’m scared to eat new foods because they might make me sick.  So, whenever I get my new insurance information I’m going to break down and go to the doctor.

I’m a poor steward of my health.  I drink too many beverages that are sweet, I favor foods that are high in carbs or calories.  I don’t exercise enough.  But even I can see the flashing neon sign.  And, now that I’ve admitted this to you I’m ten times more likely to go to the doctor and follow through on this.

  1. Good plan. It may be a simple food allergy that crosses over several different foods, and once eliminated you will feel better–and you DO deserve to feel good and safe regarding sustenance!

    So yeah, we will happily poke you to keep this at the forefront.

      *sigh* You mean I actually have to go do this? Nah, I don’t have a problem doing it, my issue right now is I can’t take off work to go do anything. It sucks but that’s how it is.
