Yesterday was a day of dunning around for shopping, in a quest for clothes, computers and what nots. Fun, frustrating at times with Nick issues , and eventually it came to lunch time and a quandary. We were not close to any gluten free possibilities, hungry and in real need of a break( and something to drink), and so I decided to take a risk an just grab a burger with a bun. Not only would it eliminate a quest for someplace with a gluten free option, but it would confirm if I indeed have an actual problem with gluten or wheat. So we had a burger lunch( I got a side salad instead of fries), and I watched all day to see if I had any problems.
The result ? No problem at all. No digestive issues, no bloating, no itching, no respiratory problems - nothing. This is making me really wonder. Is it simply that I have to not eat wheat or gluten every day ? Will I be okay if I go wheat free at home and eat wheat when I go out ? Was it a fluke ? I really do not know, and I just plain do not understand what is happening to my body. Is it just the weirdness that comes with menopause, complicated with PCOS ? Or is it simply that my brain is speaking English while from the neck down it is speaking Fratalian ????
Speaking of the body, I found some clothes, but I give up on sleeveless anything. The options seem to be itty bitty spaghetti straps or things with additions on it that make me think someone got drunk and grabbed a glue gun and leftover beads and stuff. In the quest for the wedding outfit, I am still hunting. I refuse to buy anything that looks like it is missing half of the fabric or designed for the :"I Officially Give Up" line. If worst comes to worse I will buy a pattern and fabric and make an outfit ( I did that a lot in the past and I even made one of my sister's Wedding Dress of her dreams by combining 3 different patterns). I bought a few a couple of summer tops and two bras that fit my ribs and may fit in the cups if I coat my chest with honey and lay out on an ant hill and hope the swelling will fill me out ( bra rant- just because you are big does not mean you are a D cup....)
