Thank you to everyone who read my brief postings about my struggle with eosinophiliac esophagitis. I have decided I don’t want to talk about myself all the time. I have a lot of thoughts and there is so much going on. I may get things wrong. Tell me if I do. I may rant. I may even rave. I need to get my thoughts out of my head on paper. I have been afraid to do so in the past, but here goes. If I offend, as I did before when I tried this, I am sorry. I am sure I will fall on my face and bloody my nose. I expect scraped knees. I will throw in my new recipes when they work! I am still working out how to make this blog work. For now this format is terrible but simple enough for me to use. It is a work in progress as am I.

Like Barley Bending

By Sarah Teasdale

Like barley bending
In low fields by the sea,
Singing in hard wind
Like barley bending
And rising again,
So would I, unbroken,
Rise from pain;
So would I softly,
Day long, night long,
Change my sorrow
Into song.



I am recently diagnosed with Eosinophilic Esophagitis http://www.medicinenet.com/eosinophilic_esophagitis/article.htm It may or may not be related to the pain in my upper right abdomen that I have had for 10 years.  I also have chronic migraine.  So far nothing helps enough that I can function.  This means that I am not working, married, dating, raising children, going to school or anything else productive I should be doing at this stage in my life.  I am living with my parents.  So that is all my dirty laundry.  My latest doctor – an allergist – is having me try an elimination diet.  This mean that for 8 weeks I have to not eat tomatoes, wheat, dairy, eggs,soy,fish/shellfish, and nuts/peanuts.  So I am going to chronicle this attempt to try and add another layer of discipline to this attempt.  I am going to chronicle my diet – I will keep my whining about my health problems to a minimum – no one wants to hear about that!   I have a camera that on a scale of 1 out 10 is a 2 so I will put in pictures but they might not be pretty.
