No More Gluten, Doctor’s Orders

So, because I have multiple sclerosis, I see a chiropractor on a regular basis.
It’s amazing how effective a few adjustments are but it keeps me moving.
My body normally siffens up.  Everything tightens and when I walk, it is not obvious to people who don’t know me.  But I don’t move fluidly.

Either way, he does something called muscle-testing.  I can’t explain it but I know it works.  I’ve been told before to lay off the gluten but I was too lazy.  Now that I am up to a weight that I choose not to post, I cannot ignore my problem.  In addition to gluten, I have to stay away from corn products also.

Thank God I am not lactose intolerant.

So, I guess I will be posting my journey.
Tomorrow I will post a picture of me now.
Then I will post pictures weekly.
The reason for this is that I am hoping that it will keep me on target.

I appreciate any advice out there.  My problem is exercise.
I can’t do it for long and when I do, I am exhausted.
I take medication for fatigue twice a day and a medication at night to keep me asleep through the leg spasms.

The last thing I need is diabetes.

Wish me luck!


About goplayintraffic

My Blog, which began as a mommy blog and turned into a writing website,, is the product of my years of being home with my children and trying to find ways to keep myself sane. I have always had this feeling, coming from a single mother, that I have to contribute financially and that I have to be able to take care of myself and my children. having been married, being a NYC school teacher, having four children, living in Newtown, CT and trying to find a way to get through each day with a smile has always been something I've strived for. My stories, articles and poems will do a lot of things but mostly make you feel. I think that is what is so wonderful about having the ability to write. I have been given the gift of taking my emotions and transferring them to written word. Once that is done, I can share those words with others who may feel better, maybe just for a moment, but better nonetheless having read my words. I am glad you are here and hope you will stay:)
