It's Day 13 - no java no nice. I am having a really tough time today. My brain feels like it is sloshing around in there and I question whether or not I should even be out in public...but lucky for me, I bumped my cart into the nice young man working in the produce section at Guido's Fresh Market. I fessed up and told him it wasn't the vodka on my cornflakes and he pleasantly reassured me that by Day 21 things should be looking brighter. Well ok then, that'll keep me clean for another week. I also need to be more patient and remind myself why I am doing this, like a mantra bringing me nearer to a better place... I am not depriving myself of the joys of a latte. I am instead choosing to make my gut less acidic and [gulp] to FULLY embrace the anti-inflammatory diet my body needs to manage the pain of fibromyalgia.
Day 10. 1/3 of the way through my 30 day no caffeine-no dairy elimination. I am really not happy. I miss my Latte. Coffee makes life so much more...enjoyable. It softens up those rough edges and wakes me every morning with the sweet words: I am always here for you. I have never felt worse and my brain feels likes it's sloshing around in my head. I will stick to it ... just wanted to be perfectly honest about all this - it is NO FUN. pout pout stamp foot.
