Dr. Lady Had This To Say...

Dr. Lady: "I have two things that I KNOW you have. One is that you have chronic Migraines. Two is that you have a Wheat Sensitivity problem."

Me:"What does that mean?"

Dr. Lady:"It means that your body doesn't process wheat like other peoples do."

Me:"I've been tested for celiac."

Dr. Lady:"It isn't celiac. It's Wheat Sensitivity."

Me:"What's the difference?"

Dr. Lady:"Wheat Sensitivity can't be tested. It can only be proved."

Me:"How do you prove something you can't test?"

Dr. Lady:"You go off wheat for roughly 6 months."

Me: ............LONG PAUSE............."Okay."

Dr. Lady:"It will be hard and it will take a lot of patience, but I think you can do it."


Dr. Lady:"I'm going to give you a medicine for your migraines you will need to take it every night before you go to bed for the next 6 months."


Dr. Lady:"Lets make an appointment for March which is in 3 months and we'll see how you're doing then. Fill this paper out before you leave, and I'll see you in March."


Later in the week.... Finally home alone.... *Cry* *Cry* *Cry*..... *Sob*..... *Sniffle*..... *Blow nose*...... *Cry more*..... *Talk to self....
I:"Why are you crying? This could solve everything!!!"
Me:"What if I don't want to give up all those foods? I didn't even get to finish my Christmas cereal!"
I:"But what if it solves everything and you aren't sick anymore?"
Me:"But what if it doesn't? What if I give all of my favorite things up and it doesn't help at all!!!
I:"But what if it does?"
Me:"I'll try it.... But I reserve the right to cry whenever I feel like it!!!!!"

I think you are entitled to a good cry every once in a while.

But your blessing said you would have health. I think this (and God's blessing) is gonna get it for you!

I'll cry with you. Dang it, that's rough. I'm so sorry dear. But, crying helps so cry whenever you feel like it. Love you!
