Diagnosed with Diverticulitis

Saturday, June 18, 2016

Yesterday I woke up with servere pain in my lower left abdominal area. I also had other symptoms like nausea, and fever. I couldn't even walk, the pain was too servere. I decided to go to the Emergency Room and after a few blood test and a CT Scan I was told that I have Diverticulitis. A few weeks ago, I started my weight loss journey... I was on a roll. I was getting up going for walks, exercising and eating healthy. Now I'm on bed rest for a few days. Thinking about my health overall, I'm feeling motivated to lose this weight to get healthier. Now that it's clear I need to add more additional fiber to my diet, and stay away from certain foods, I'm ready to continue my journey. I have Diabetes, Neuropathy, and Diverticulitis/Diverticulosis and I'm only 34. I need to get this under control !!!! Pray for me !!!!
