I'm Back!... Well, kind of!

So, it has been an exceptionally long time since I have written anything. Let me fill you all in on what’s been going on in my life….

I have parasites. Yes, this is disgusting but it’s true. I was throwing up 20+ times a day from March until mid June. I pretty much did nothing for the past 4 months. I know, this may be a bit too much to share with complete strangers on the internet, but I feel connected to my blog and the fact that I haven’t been able to write in it for so long hurts a bit. I barely have been able to sit up for a couple of hours, so I rarely went on the computer.

I am finally starting to get A LITTLE BIT better. I am able to stay about 4-5 hours at work now. I haven’t thrown up since June 21st, so it has been just over a month.

The reason I have been down and out for so long is that “normal” doctors could not find out what was wrong with me. I have undergone every stomach test imaginable and everything was coming back completely normal. They would tell me I am a very healthy person. If I was so healthy- how come I threw up 25 times a day? Insane, right!

Well, I went to 3 different specialists and they were trying to tell me I had IBS. Um, no. I don’t. I thought that answer was complete crap. Since they couldn’t find anything else wrong with me, they assume IBS. We’ll… I wasn’t taking that for an answer.

I went to a holistic doctor finally and SHE GOT ME TO NOT THROW UP! It was a miracle. I am on all of these natural supplements and an EXTREMELY strict diet but I am slowly getting better… FINALLY. I am so relieved. I know I’m not completely better yet (still get stomach pains and still very weak) but at least I am able to leave my house for a couple hours a day to get somewhat of a pay check.

So, I apologize for not keeping up with my blog the last couple of months. I am ecstatic to actually be able to write something now.

Well, that’s it for today. I’m going to go lay back down for awhile- all this typing really does tire a girl out!


  1. OMG, what an ordeal you've been through! I am so sorry! And I'm also really glad you decided to visit the holistic doc so she could help you. I'm sending good, healing thoughts and hoping you'll be 100% asap.

    So nice so see you back on the blog! :)

  2. Great, glad to hear you are on the mend! I hoped the holistic doc would sort you out.

    Take care of yourself and I hope you will be feeling 100% better soon.


  3. Oh my goodness that sounds awful. How did you get it in the first place? I hope you get better soon!

  4. Just wanted to send some festive wishes and love your way!

    Wishing you peace and joy!
