I finally found the papers with the instructions for my colonoscopy next week. Good thing I did since I have to start my special diet today. Turns out all the healthy food that I normally eat is in the "Do Not Eat" column: such as brown rice, nuts, whole grains, fresh fruit and vegetables and anything corn. So what is in the "Eat This" column? White bread, white rice, pasta, cooked to death vegetables, pudding, jello and ice cream. So with my wheat allergy this leaves overcooked vegetables, pudding, jello and ice cream. Since my blood sugar is so wacky with this illness I'm going to be a total wreck this week. Maybe I'll just eat meat and lots of eggs. Otherwise it will be pudding and ice cream with the concomitant sugar highs and crashes. I'm SO not looking forward to this. Oh yeah, I had to stop all my meds and supplements as well. So on top of the mood swings and energy rollercoaster ride I have to manage a week with muscle cramps, severe joint pain and headaches. UGH!!!
