Quitting Sugar

I just purchased the "I Quit Sugar" e-book by Sarah Wilson.  I'm scared.

There are great diet tips and recipes out there, however, with my allergies it seems impossible to follow.  I would start a diet then 2 days later i'd give in.  This time i'm determined to give it a fair crack.  Some recipes in the e-book are hard to adjust for my allergies but i'm sure with trial and error (and the ROT - rip off thermie) i'll find goodness in healthy foods without adding copious amounts of unnecessary sugar, even though it is tasty!

Another thing i've found daunting is the amount of sodium in store brought food.  I have researched how much sodium there should be per 100g and i'm shocked by my findings. Read Here  I am taking this little baby with me to the shops at all times.

Dinner tonight - no sugar, no sodium, no carbs.... no fun?

I found my old blog!

Welcome back to me!

I will try and make this blog a bit more upbeat than the previous posts i've just flicked through, oh and no doubt i'll be sharing recipes/pictures of food creations as I experiment with my new "thermie", the rip off thermomix, who, if i could, i would have an affair with!

Stay tuned.... tonight we had take away :P

Medical appointment 101

So an appointment with my GP today showed my thyroid is functioning fine, it's some antibody of the thyroid that is super high and can cause my thryoid to become underactive.

Looks like all i heard from the shrink was "overactive" and "thyroid". So glad i got it all explained to me in lamens terms though.

So the deal is to wait 6 weeks, get more blood tests and monitor the levels. If they have changed then we action the antibodies.

And another thing.... i'm borderline anemic!?!? I have to start pumping the red meat, leafy greens and OJ. I also have to have 1 iron tablet a day.

What's another tablet right?

Count down to wine o'clock

1 & 1/2 hours till i can pop open my chilled bottle of champers! Ahhh bliss, nothing like a nice cold vino to top off another shitty week.

I was feeling so good going into my shrink appointment on Wednesday, then overactive thyroid is mentioned and i've taken a downward approach to everything.

*sigh* When will the zoloft kick in?

I would say 2010 is the year to make drastic diet/lifestyle changes. Maybe i should stop drinking (*gasp*), or at least cut it down to 1 night a week. Maybe i should start eating organic, but we don't have the money to start buying more expensive foods, being on one income is hard enough. What else can i do? I already go to the gym 4 days a week. I know.... maybe pop some more medication? *rolls eyes*

So the cognitive behaviour therapy is booked in for Jan 19th, can't wait to start changing these thoughts around in my messed up little mind at the moment.

The shrink suggested a diary

I got all excited, i was going to buy a pretty diary at Kikki and a special pen, then i remembered my last journal, 2 pages in and i was over it. So i'll blog, and hopefully more frequently. I really don't mind if i get comments or not, it's more of an outlet for me and my messed up mind at them moment.

So, lets tally the medical conditions i have.



1. Eczema
2. Asthma
3. Severe food allergies
4. Severe dust/cat/grass/hayfever allergies
5. Osteoporosis
6. Scoliosis
7. Endometriosis
8. Polycystic Ovaries
9. PND
10. Epulis
11. Overactive thyroid

DRUMROLL..... dadadadadadadadadadadaddadada


That's a total of 11 fukt up illnesses, yay to me. I'm 27 and my list looks like it belongs to an 80 year old.

Plan of attack? Who fucking knows, i'm sick of taking pills and i'm sick of all this shit happening to me. Yes i know there are others worse off but FFS cut me some god damn slack and let me off the hook for once ok?

Am having a few wines to debrief today's new illness. Lets see how i feel in the morning?

So I have PND... big news, not

No big news to me, no shock, no surprise, not too upset by the "official" diagnosis, it's only another illness to add to the list right?

It was only a matter of time before it was fully diagnosed.

So now it's on meds for a year, psychiatrist appointments fortnightly and group CBT beginning in Jan that goes for 6 weeks.

I've always said it, someone has to make up the stats for illnesses and why not that person be me?

So i'm 27 and have eczema, asthma, hayfever, sever food allergies with anaphylactic reactions, allergies to grass/cats/pollen and dust, scoliosis, osteoporosis, epulis, polycystic ovaries, endometriosis and now to top off my list PND... YAY... NOT

Get fucked PND and give my body a fucking rest for once, bitch

RIP Holloway's :(

Words can't even begin to describe how devastating the loss of 5 Holloway's lives are :( I'm so sorry that a fire can tear a family apart and take away 4 beautiful children and 1 adoring Mother.

I don't think 5 minutes have passed by today when i haven't thought of you all. I really hope Aaron can somehow survive this, although i don't know how. How on earth would you recover from a tragedy like this?

Lenore has the biggest heart of gold and it is broken way beyond repair. I'm gutted for them all and all i could do today was hug Noah for comfort.

RIP Ashlee and babies

I'll be keeping the Holloways and Faulkners in my prayers and thoughts xo
