Absence makes the heart grow fonder

Well here I go again with a long absence from the blog world once again. Real life took a hold of my attention for sometime, and now I return. With my return I come back better and more informed about life and myself. Why am I better informed you say? Well turns out I have been suffering from a debilitating disease for most of my life without knowledge of what was causing me so much pain. They say knowledge is power and now having a diagnosis finally empowered me. I just had surgery and during that surgery my doctor found out that I have Endometriosis.

Because of this disease I am changing my lifestyle dramatically. I have been researching, sometimes almost all day, more natural approaches to healing (i don't want to put unwanted hormones in my body if I can help it). I will be changing my diet to help lessen the pain and growth of my Endometriosis. I will be trying to eat a soy-free, gluten-free, dairy-free diet! Wow that is a big change for me, but it turns out that soy, most of all, makes my disease worse. So, I will be incorporating some of my new lifestyle changes (mostly in the form of recipes) to the blog. In some small way maybe I can help someone else out there living with this disease and reach out to my Endo sisters! Oh...and it's good to be back..I've missed you!
