A couple days ago I went back to see my doctor to follow up on some tests I had gotten done.
Long story short, I apparently have irritable bowel syndrome. I’m sure there’s more to it but for now just having a diagnosis is such a huge relief. A huge weight has been lifted. I can now just focus on lifestyle changes and control over it rather than spending another year of my life running tests.
I’ve been trying to figure out what’s wrong with my body and why I can’t keep down food for four years now. My digestive system got so messed up that at some point it rejected every kind of food I put it in.
Though, the last couple months I found some form of medication that helps with that problem and I’ve finally gained my weight back.
I’m just relieved. I finally have an answer. Maybe there is more to this and my search isn’t over but for now it’s enough. It’s enough to help me get by.
