Trying to Stay Positive

I think that everyone deals with something in their life that could make them a very negative person, if they let it get that far. And I'm not perfect when it comes to this - just ask my husband:) But this has been extremely "trying" for me lately. I have had to think of everything possible to maintain my positivity.

It seems that lately, even when I'm sticking to the GAPS, I'm not doing well with my stomach. These problems are a mystery. I have literally (now) tried EVERYTHING in the book. I don't want to think of it like there's nothing else I could possibly do, but I'm just not sure what I could do anymore. 

Not that anyone really cares, but I've decided to start researching the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota.

But for now, I realize that I must try to stay positive. So I remind myself that I have the best husband in the world, my dogs who rule my heart, family, friends, a career I absolutely love and the chance for something new each and everyday. 

And I carry these thing with me to keep me staying positive!


  1. I just happened on your blog and am shocked to hear you say that you have the same issues I have. My stomach issues have been going on for years now. I'm GF, daily free, and have come to realize that chocolate, the thing I adore, makes me feel like doo-doo. So, I'm axing chocolate from the list. I know there's more, and there are other things I avoid. I think you're smart to research the Mayo Clinic. You need to keep searching for answers. Never give up!

  2. But here's the thing Lara, you'll get to a point where you are literally giving up EVERYTHING! And I mean EVERYTHING! Chocolate I understand. Even foods with gluten and dairy. But then all the sudden it's something else and then yet another thing. Life is too short to live on 2 foods. And that's why I'm starting to think I need the Mayo Clinic! Thanks for the message:)
