So I went to this clinic and did an allergy test. Its something I have wanted to do for years but never got around too or had the money.

Anyway, it was surprising as hell. Apparently I have intolerance issues with:

  • Lamb
  • Potatotoes
  • Beetroot
  • Cod fish
  • Yeast
  • Newspaper print
  • Petrol
  • Brussel Sprouts
  • Mixed weed shrub - whatever the hell that is.
So I guess fish and chips are out. I am really going to struggle not having potatoes. I am trying to follow slimming world and I used to eat jacket potatoes a lot.

Also the lady wants me to cut diary down as it will help with my sinuses and although I am not allergic or struggle with Gluten, yeast is in a lot of bread. So Pizza is out too.

I have been prescribed 4 supplements. I am a little sceptical but I agreed to have a go for a month and see how I feel. I have Ecodophilus - good bacteria, Chromuim - which should help stablise my blood sugar cravings, nutro Adrenal extra - as she said my adrenal gland was not well and I get stressed a lot and Evening Primrose oil.

It was expensive, I won't lie to you to have the test and invest in all these. But like I said I'll give it a month. I have another appointment with her on the 9th August.

I have just had my first diary free porridge, made with almond milk and honestly it was alright.  Even Sam had a taste and he okayed it.

I think, however this is going to be really hard. I may have found a way round chips - Roasting butternut squash instead. I can but try it. At least its not cut forever. Apparently you re-introduce stuff after a while and your body has healed.

So the last year has been a bugger of a health one for me. My sister got diagnosed with a nasal polyp. She urged me to seek help from the doctor for my years of nasal issues and lack of breathing, which I did to discover I had a large polyp in my right nostril. Suddenly I was having an operation in November to remove this. Not fun.

Fast forward 6 months, still getting headaches. One CT scan and a nasal scope later and its not actually a polyp. No it was an inverted nasal papilla. And last week I had to have FESS surgery once more on the bastard that was apparently up behind my eye nerve and blocking one of my sinuses. 

The last week has been so horrible and these "things" the surgeon informed me right before they knocked me out, can reoccur. Now Ive managed a full day without crashing. Really been up and down the last week. And I think .... touch wood the swelling inside my right nostril is reducing. I can breath better. Still some pain, still coughing up blood but its much better than it was.

I have made an appointment with a local clinic this Saturday to have an allergy test. My aunt also suffers from sinus issues and cut dairy. Its supposed to help as is less gluten. Should be interesting to see what comes out of it. Not sure how good I will be at trying  to eat less bread.

Been awhile

Well my writing has been pap for the last .... erm what now. Half a year???

Big changes in the world of Debs. First up I met someone.Thats pretty serious now. So serious that he's moved in :) Star ships and all. Yes people I have nearly an entire welsh dresser full of star ships from Star trek. I will say some are really cool like the Enterprise etc and some not so amazing. Theres this butt ugly bright orange bajoran one I really am not fond of.

The crazy person who was living under me is gone. Yeah! Gangs of hoodies have calmed down and mostly gone. Yeah! I may of course have a new crazy neighbour as others are telling me there is another drug addict under me now. Excellent ..... why thank you Kirklees council.

Going on hols soon to Majorca. Should be the Binnsmeisters hen doo except shes pregnant now and the weddings been moved. Not to worry a holiday is still a holiday! Looking forward to it.

Lost 2 stone. Although probably won't have by the time Easter is over. Ahhh well.

Works letting me do a course in June - how to make e-learning packages. Very excited. Have been asking for 3 years to let me do that. Also had this incredibly cool Blend it session with Julie Wedgwood -

Things seem to be taking off a little :)

Also my friend Yvonne is back in the UK for a couple of weeks soon from Canada. Can't wait to see her again and  catch up.
