I went to my acupuncturist yesterday and she asked me to try going gluten-free for a month. She also wants me to cut out as many refined sugars as I can. The main reason I haven’t tried this before has been the cost. I can’t justify spending so much just on food for me. I also don’t want to get my hopes up again, just to have them dashed. That probably sounds silly but with every new thing a doctor has had me try or family has told me to try and every failure, I feel more and more discouraged. I feel like I am at a place of acceptance of my situation and it is scary for me to open my mind to a new treatment. I’m not sure that will make sense to anyone and I’m not sure if I’m explaining it correctly. I’m in a flare right now, so the fog is pretty thick. Even though I slept well last night and remember dreaming, I went back to bed after waking and eating breakfast and I feel like I’m spacing-out all the time.
