Hidden ailments/diseases

Sooo… I ended up having to go to the doctor, who called the next day to check on me (she told me go to the ER), I go to the ER and spend all day, and then end up having to go right back late in the night/early in the morning (depending on how one looks at it), and then they admit me for 2 days. Feeling awful makes it hard to bear oneself, so I didn’t get any knitting or crochet done while there.

I’ve been diagnosed with diverticulitis, along with a few other things. My grandmother suffered from it and my dad has bouts of it too. During an episode, if you want to call it, or a flare up, antibiotics are needed (which lemme tell ya are nasty tasting and can have some aide effects that are down right miserable). Then a low fiber diet, and alot of limitations to certain types of food, like nuts and seeds for example are no no’s. Then when well, a high fiber diet to keep things rolling.

If you’d like more info on the ailment…. here is a pic of simple terms.

I’m looking at making a batch of soap tomorrow will post then.
