Optimistically Patient...

Ok, a little behind here so I am combining O and P together. I have been busy adjusting to some big changes in my life, and with all change it takes time and patience.
Yesterday I recieved the test results back from the MRT test to see if I have any food and or food/chemical allergies. The results were quite interesting. The top three allergies were to milk, chicken and rice! Not was I was expecting. Then there are 27 other food/ chemical sensativities. All of which are now removed from my diet.
This is where patience came in to the picture for me today. Because so many of the foods I CAN have need to be purchased from a health food store I drove out there today to go shopping. Some of these items I didn't even know what they were, much less how to prepare them!
On the way, there was a traffic jam on the highway so I decided to try to go around it and go the back way. OK, all of you who know me are laughing because I have no clue when it comes to directions. And yes, my handy Garmin was at home...of no use to me.
Then my husband, who IS good with directions spent a half an hour getting me out of the back country roads I managed to get myself lost in. PATIENCE...on both our parts here.
I finally  make it and spent another two hours shopping for all this unknown food in all the unknown places. I swear I circled the store four times and asked the same workers questions till I drove them crazy!
Now,I am trying to remain optimistic and praying my headache doesn't start up. All the triggers were in place: stress, tired, past lunch time, past a dose of a daily medication....but, NO HEADACHE!
Three and a half hours later I make it home, with a surprisingly large amount of energy and cook a birthday dinner for my hubby.
It is now around 10:30 PM, I feel great and best of all I am going to bed without a headache tonight!
This is day 2 of removing the "trigger" foods from my diet....today I am optimistic, full of hope and waiting patiently to see how it goes.

What we will do to get rid of stupid headaches! I'm glad you have that "never give up " spirit. A lot of people would not have investigated food allergies.
Good luck!
