I’m not sure if today really counts as day one, as I’m sitting here as we speak eating Nutella out of the jar (Fun Fact: Did you know Nutella comes from Germany?)… and Nutella, like EVERYTHING IN THE ENTIRE WORLD, contains gluten (in the form of soya).
I went to the doctor to check out my bloodwork this morning, which of course, was “fine”. All of my tests are always “fine” and I’m pretty sure my doctor thinks I’m insane. He didn’t say that, but he did say that he didn’t think I had Hashimoto’s. I’ve decided to ignore him and treat myself as naturally as possible, which means gluten free. Sigh. They tell me life goes on, but I don’t believe them yet.
He did allow me to double my dosage of the Levothyroxine so now I’m taking 50mg (or will be starting tomorrow). He says it can’t really hurt me too much as people who are hypothyroid tend to take 100mg a day. So, basically, he said: “You can take the drugs, crazy. Since people with “real problems” take more, you’ll probably be ok…”
What makes this especially hard is the fact that this is what I see EVERYWHERE as I’m walking down the street:
Just imagine how that smells. Now imagine committing to never eat it again. Double sigh. Back to my Nutella.
