Well this dairy free experiment is going very well indeed. Yesterday I had some issues with cramping but otherwise my stomach/intestines were calm and happy. The rash is still gone baby gone. I unfortunately am experiencing bodily aches that come along with being a lady so I can't tell if the gluten is really bothering me or not. Starting this experiment this week was bad timing, so hopefully next week will be better. Overall, I'm feeling pretty great. I have more energy today and am mostly comfortable. Had I known 3 or 4 years ago that all I had to do was stop eating dairy in order to get rid of that rash, many things may have gone quite differently. But that's neither here nor there, it is what it is, and I'm glad it's working out now.
In other news, Saturday morning my shower was suddenly very low pressure so I talked to the landlord and he came and installed a new shower head yesterday. It. Is. Awesome. I can't wait to take another shower!
