Yep, we are definitely in the same painful place. I didn't get the impression you have only been on the diet for a month. I thought you that you thought I had only tried the diet for a month. When you said "give it a month". I've given it over 12 months...and still the diet hasn't worked for me personally...but that I have chosen to keep trying.
It sounds like this diet is working for you? Is that true? That you are beginning to have some pain free days once in a while? Are you going to continue on it? I think you should. 5 1/2 months is still too early to give hope hope on it! Are you a C?
I also had a point where I put my affairs in order and wrote a will....in case I decided that I would get to the point where I would just be too tired to fight anymore.
Constipation, pain prodominent,cramps, spasms and bloat!
