Why I Started A Paleo Diet
I was about to walk out the door when my stomach churned. There was this sudden gurgle like a pipe emptying, and I quickly shut the door, took off my coat, and quick stepped into the bathroom.
I kept wracking through my head – what could it be? Did I eat something bad AGAIN? Was it the spinach salad I had or maybe the beets?
That was the beginning of IBS for me, and after weeks of doctor appointments, poop tests, etc, all they came back with was..you have IBS, symptoms of which can be are bloating, gas, and diarrhea.
I walked into our apartment and joyfully told Jeremy the news: “The doctor told me I have IBS.”
Jeremy gave me a seriously confused look and said slowly, “So they told you what you already knew? That you have diarrhea?”
My good mood suddenly vanished as the truth hit me. The tests and weeks of waiting and the final diagnosis was all pointless. They had simply given me a label for my symptoms with no cure in sight!
