Chronic Illness Truth #3
The seemingly never-ending journey that every chronically ill person has to wade through. 🙅♀️🤷♀️
I've been fighting the Lyme battle for quite some time, which means that at some point I've tried almost every diet under the sun. Gluten-free, fat-free, dairy-free, vegetarian, vegan, paleo, keto, you name it... I've done it. It can take quite a while to find out what works best for you in the realm of food, and there are so many different nutrition theories that are constantly telling you what you should or shouldn't eat. I've learned that diet is different for everyone and that one man's food is another man's poison. For me, I eat organic, and I've completely cut refined sugars from my diet. And that's how I eat so I'm not sick on a constant basis!
I've discovered a weird social quirk through all this "dieting" business though, and that is that a lot of people often feel uncomfortable when you choose not to eat at any social event that involves food. I've often had people make comments about my weight or about how I can't just think I'm better than everyone else because I eat differently. Honestly, I do not think down on people for what they eat, and when I talk about my diet it's because I have a passion for health and wellness, and I'm seriously just trying to stay alive in my Lyme battle! 💪💚❤️😁
