About my Whining

Wednesday, May 08, 2013

At first, I was going to apologize and for those of you that were annoyed (I am truly sorry you were annoyed.) Expressing myself , my concerns and issues help me get clarity, suggestions and ideas. I could have withdrawn, thrown in the towel and decided that these issues are now my fate and I would be forever chained to the porcelain bowl.

By being open, I got some new leads to pursue. Some leads involve blood and other tests, Another was a suggestion that I may have a sensitivity to gluten (and I so love bread). Being on SparkPeople, you would have thought that I was keeping a food log. Wrong. Since I do a weekly menu, I skipped logging. Now we all know that things do not always go as planned so looking back on my menu for input is kind of useless. Sure it gives me a vague idea, but nothing truly useful.

Keeping a food and symptom journal makes sense and is my new goal. Step by step, I will find a solution.

    This blog is such a great example to me of how to respond when one gets fussed at. You explained your perspective objectively, in a calm, pleasant manner.

By the way, I never heard any whining.

    I love to read whining, and sorry I missed yours. I think it's a realistic part of life and, as you said, better to vent then withdraw. One thing about SP site is that it's lala land, not too realistic at all. I've stepped away from it quite a bit and may quit soon. Not sure. But for those who were annoyed, they need to go away and get a life. Big hug.

    I took a peek at your Sleeping Beauty blog (don't know how I missed it) and: you are NOT WHINING! Grrrrrr. You're requesting suggestions, nothing wrong with that . . . that's what we are here for. And you give loads and loads of support to other people so why not ask?

Food log is a great idea for awhile anyhow -- and how about getting a referral to a dietician? Maybe after you've kept that food log/symptoms record for a couple weeks?

    Lord have mercy! Are our lives all so perfect we don't have a need to vent once in awhile1 Hmmm...I'd just brush off anyone who is annoyed with it. Ok, now I can move on.

I think it is a great start to keep a log of foods and symptoms. That way you have something wot work with in determining what is going on WITH YOUR healthcare practitioner. I definitely would seek professional advice as well.

    I echo BLW. This is a safe venue to vent so that you can continue with positive, forward choices -- so glad you used and found just that for yourself! Food journals are very helpful!

    This is a safe venue to speak your mind and get what is bothering off your chest. Sometimes you just need to give voice to what is heavy on your mind/heart. See? You are already moving on and feeling better.

A food and symptom journal, of course! Clarity will show itself as you look for patterns and possibilities.
