Day 10 AIP. NOT feeling it. At all.
I thought my first week would be hell week. Other than that nasty migraine on Day 2, last week was fine. This week though. I just don’t feel GOOD. I feel off. Kinda sucks.
Now, that I’ve embarked on educating myself about Hashimoto’s, I’m a little more free about talking about it. However, I still feel like I’m crazy when I start talking about. It’s that moment of disbelief in the other person’s eyes. Or did I imagine that look? Hashimoto’s isn’t easy for ME to understand, let alone someone else.
Simply put, my very own antibodies are attacking my thyroid and trying to kill it. That’s what Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis is. The thyroid is responsible for so many things in the body, and as my body is trying to kill, things are going awry elsewhere. BOO! HISS!
So, back to AIP. AIP is supposed to detox all processed food and supposedly harmful foods out of your system. Apparently, we eat too many damn chemicals and preservatives. Did you know that cashews are kin to poison ivy? Who knew!? I’m supposed to eat this way for 6-8 weeks. UGH! All I want is something crunchy that isn’t a vegetable. I want comfort food. I want to go down to the pantry and eat whatever the heck I want!!!!!
“I want to be a hunter again.”
I just feel so sluggish, so NOT motivated. I want to sleep when I’m not doing anything else and sometimes when I’m supposed to be doing something else. My joints hurt, I’m cold, my skin is super dry. And now I’m complaining. But you know what, this is my blog, and I can complain if I want to.
