Basically Bedridden Blogging

So as I mentioned yesterday, I have had the misfortune to have eaten something cross contaminated with gluten, and man did I not miss this feeling.

My alarm went off at 8:30 this morning, and I very quickly realized I would not make it through my morning class with how I was feeling. The manfriend then woke me up again at 11:30, and I quickly realized I was not making it through much of anything today. So, I figured I was already feeling awful I might as well make it worse, so I went and got the blood work done that I had been putting off. I then slept the rest of the day, until about an hour ago. The worst part is, I’m ready to go to bed again.

Now that I’ve been eating gluten-free for the past 5 or so months, I genuinely forgot what it was like before my diagnosis. The constant exhaustion, the bloating, the feeling like I was about to throw up at any given moment, the throwing up at any given moment, it was miserable, and I do not miss it.

On a happier note, the Maple Grove Farm All Purpose Baking Mix that I had previously posted about making pancakes with, makes killer biscuits. I would have posted a picture of them but the manfriend ate them all before I got one.

Also exciting, I used my bedridden state to start a Tumblr, not really sure how to use it, or if I’ll keep it updated, but it doesn’t hurt to follow me.ย

Here’s the smile for today. This was always one of my favorite Dr. Seuss poems, and the German accent just makes it that much better!
