All moments should be as simple as this one. Every minute should be as uncomplicated as this one is. Unfortunately, today they aren't and I find myself at times filled with anxiety. 

I know why that is. It's because I wasn't able to stick to the diet because of unforeseen circumstances. It wasn't really because of a fault of my own, but still it makes me feel highly uncomfortable. Going on the diet was a big deal, going off it is an even bigger deal. 

I don't generally do well with changes in my life and this is a double whammy. On top of that I had the discomfort of the stomach problems. It's all been too upsetting for me and I wonder how I would deal with a real crisis. 

Well, it's the seemingly small problems in life that are always the hardest to tackle. Those are the ones that sneak up on you. It's the bigger things we are better prepared for and get the most support in. 

I must say that I consider myself fortunate that I don't have to deal with any big problems and that this is a relative small one that I have to tackle. I do have to count my blessings, after all. I must never forget to do that. God forbid that I should start thinking that my life is overly complicated. 

See how everything is relative? I started off worrying and before you know it, I've talked myself right out of it. I must just accept that I can't follow that silly diet and that I have a sensitive stomach. A stomach with an instruction booklet. That's all, no more, no less. 

At least I'm able to drink a cup of coffee with milk in it, that's truly a blessing. You know how much I want my cup of coffee. How much I need it. I'm not the same woman if I haven't had it. It perks me up tremendously if I'm in need of it. I won't be drinking tea any time soon. I had not such a good experience with it. 

The sun has been shining all day and the dog and the cat have been sitting in front of the window watching the world come by. It has been very entertaining to them because it has been very busy and lots of people have walked through the street. It's been like watching TV for them. 

I've got to see if I can catch the latest news and find out about the state of the country. I hope it's not going to hell in a hand basket yet. According to our able politicians, it isn't.

is there a reason that you wanted to change your diet? you might have blogged about it and i missed it.

I also wondered why you changed your diet to fruit & veg. I must have missed the reason too.

I get upset when I feel out of control of things especially when it is to do with diet and what I have have been instructed to do and what medicines I have to take.
I hate it when someone else has to tell me to change my life style.
However, this seems to be happening for the time being, anyway.

I dare say you will find something that suits your stomach.
Can you eat a small variety of things? I am a bit wary of any diet that only permits you to eat such extreme foods such as all fruit& veg..... all dairy....... all carbo hydrate....... all protein because we need a little of all these things.
Hope you will get your peace of mind as the weekend progresses.
Sleep well.

I hope you continue to recover.

I hear a big change in your voice, do I dare say, I hear some contentment there?
