Thank you, that is a better way of thinking of it. Some of these things are so much a part of how we live .. using running for endorphins is a good idea. I prefer running actually, but have found it aggravates my core muscles too much at the moment. Perhaps once I reduce my inflammatory intake, I'll be able to try this again.
Cutting out the food does seem to help symptoms, but I still feel a bit alien with friends and family. I always love to cook and bake. GF DF SF cakes don't seem to go down so well with them, I need more practice!
I used to run and do runs with friends, also went to gym and pilates with friends and cant do that yet.
My friends all have multiple kids but the endo I have means I can not have more than my 1 miracle (who I am incredibly grateful for! I had her 6 years ago)'
The glass of wine lets me feel a bit more normal. I like good wine so never drank volumes, but I think the goal is to cut it out entirely!
I suppose it ll take time to adjust and find new social norms. I'm just going through a stage of finding it hard, realising how much the disease has taken from me already.
