Yes I know the title is not grammatically correct but seriously, Caffeine withdrawals really, ain't no joke. I'm really not feeling good AT ALL!!!
I was diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis in 2010 and I chose not to go on any of those medications that are suppose to help. The reason for this is simple they are not good for you. I mean why would I want to put some crazy stuff in my body that could cause more problems than just knee pain. So I decided that I would try to control it with diet. I did really good with not having caffeine, or gluten until I got pregnant with Pip in 2011, then I just couldn't help myself I needed cupcakes, brownies and Mexican food. These things didn't bother me while I was pregnant, other than morning sickness pretty much the entire 9 months, I never felt better.
Now my knee pain is hindering my ability to play with my son like I would like, so I'm back to trying to adjust my diet. One thing that causes flare ups is caffeine. I love coffee and coke and chocolate. I usually can't get going in the morning with out a tall mug of coffee, well I haven't had any coffee or coke (soda) since Saturday morning and my head is throbbing!!!!
I'm also trying to cut out the gluten because it's EVIL too. I love pasta and biscuits and I've already confessed my love of Chick-fil-a. Oh this is going to be a toughie. Maybe I'll just eat vegetables there's really nothing in them right?
Sorry I know I was all into the April Blog a Day Challenge for 3 days but I don't think I can really commit to something that permanent so you'll get a post when I can actually think of something to write that's on topic.
