Given the downward turn my health has taken, I guess it’s time to brush off the old, dusty practice of keeping symptom & food diaries. On the good side, it makes me feel like I’m taking charge of my health & trying to manage the things within my control. Keeping track of things helps me identify triggers and patterns; those are things I can do something about.
On the less entertaining side, it pisses me off that I have to watch & micro-manage every aspect of my life in order to feel somewhat “normal”. I already feel like I’m having to dumb-down my life to manage my energy crisis. I also busted my ass to finish a master’s degree that I can’t do a whole lot with on a part-time basis….. RANT!
Anyway, I will manage what I can & begrudgingly accept what I cannot. Consider the symptom & food diaries dusted off and in use……..
