Long Distance Realization

Posted on January 26, 2009. Filed under: Uncategorized |

I just realized that one of the things that really sucks with Brian’s living across the world from me is that I don’t get invited out by single friends (because I’m not single, so they don’t think to), but I also don’t get invited out by coupled-off friends (because my other half isn’t here). As if being in this sort of relationship weren’t hard enough – no one’s really helping matters with preconceived notions.

the candida years continue

Posted on January 17, 2009. Filed under: Uncategorized |

So I’ve been negligent of this blog for a long time. I think that Facebook and Twitter have actually been able to shrink my attention span. Seriously. I think in status updates throughout the day. I’ve lost interest in writing or ready anything longer than 140 characters.

But, I wanted to check back in with an update now that this blog is nearly 2 years old. I started out way back when because I had been trying to figure out what sort of a disease or illness was plaguing me. Turns out that after years of dealing with idiot doctors, is was Candida.

Now, just over 3 years of not eating sugar, gluten or dairy, the candida is still there, but is definitely in check. And I’ve found so many new and fun foods to eat. And LOTS of restaurants to eat out at too, including some of these featured ones in Toronto. Though I’m still looking forward to trying that Fish and Chip place next weekend.

Anyway – I just wanted to drop by, say hello and say that the Candida is still there — but I feel so much better than when this all started. My doctor still thinks I’m crazy, but I’m able to hold my ground with him so it’s cool.

And wonder if anyone else there actually got rid of Candida and could eat like a normal person again? Or if you wanted to again? What would your first go-to food be, if you could eat anything you wanted?
