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!


  1. Oh my goodness. I'm so sorry. I'm glad you know what has been causing you pain, though. Feel better.
