Where to begin?

Ah yes, my first post. I have my friend Ava to thank for helping me with the name. The concept, well, that’s entirely mine. Now that I’ve implemented it, I’m not sure where to begin.

I have a love/hate relationship with food. Don’t get me wrong. I like to eat. However, my body can’t process most foods. I was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease about 5 years ago. It took doctors almost 2 years to diagnose me. I’m one of those people who you just can’t give me too much information. I enjoy details. So, off to the web to search what others were doing. There are so many people with so many diets and so much information. It’s quite overwhelming! I recently went into a (physical) bookstore and they had 5 bookcases full of diet books!

Through trial and error, I’ve found what works for me. I’ve also not been on any medications. I still seek out information to add just a bit more food that is “safe” for me to eat.

The purpose of this blog is to share the information and offer hope to those that are struggling.

Oh yeah, I’m quite a geek too, so I will be sharing geekified stuff too!
