I do love Maddie's rules. It's spot on why I been out of the loop for so long.
Kids before quilts,
Quality over quantity,
Marriage before making another commitment
That and my body was/still kinda is on the fritz. I have been dealing with gluten intolerance, so it is medically necessary for me to follow a gluten free diet to be healthy. I'm not just following some weird celebrity diet fad. It didn't help that gobs of my hair was falling out and gluten, which is like a poison to my body, is brutal towards your skin. Horrible especially when people judge you on looks and I felt like a 13 year old with thinning hair. To have those outward signs as well as internal ones was depressing. My skin has finally cleared of acne and irritation, and my hair is growing back. Trying to eat in a whole different way is frustrating. Restaurants, socializing, can be impossible. I have a lot more unpolite symptoms, before you think I am just a vain horrible person, but if you're wondering, you can check out the link here. And last summer I had tests for thyroid cancer. I had a cyst the size of a golf ball popped up over night on my neck in June. Freaked the hell out of me. Apparently one of the many small nodules on my thyroid busted a blood vessel in my neck. No cancer, I'm fine, but it makes you reflect. Between the thyroid stuff and gluten induced vitamin deficiencies making me sick and exhausted, I didn't want to create anything for a long long time. Now I am getting it under control. Trying to anyway.
I hope that explains my blogging break. Missed you all. ❤
