I wish it were the good kind of flare... my stomach is revolting. I'm hoping it's just anxiety over the fact that I have my first interview in 10 years tomorrow. Or it could be the yogurt I ate today in an attempt to get more probiotics into my diet. Yup, still can't tolerate ANY dairy whatsoever. So I bought some acidophilus (sp?) pills today that I'll start taking tomorrow instead. I think additionally I'm having issues because I started taking a multivitamin with iron last week and it constipated me, so I stopped.. and now I'm becoming unconstipated..... um yeah. Sorry folks, this IS a blog about Crohn's afterall ;-)
Anyway, I'm definitely starting to make the changes to my diet that I need to make. Probiotics - check, gluten free - working on it, dairy free - most definitely after today! It's going to be a baby steps process. The dairy first, that's the easiest and fastest and the one thing I've been trying to do all a long. The gluten is the next step, which shouldn't be too hard. I don't really have much gluteny food in the house anyway. The probiotics start tomorrow. Once I am completely gluten and dairy free I will start cutting back on carbs/starchy foods and sugars. The sugar thing though is something I'm already conscious of.
Ok, well that's enough for now. I need to get to bed. I am not feeling good at all. :(
