I know I can be pretty forgetful but yesterday took the cake.
I went to go out to meet my OH but before I did I tidied the flat up a little bit. So I put some empty chocolate wrappers in the bin and when I set about leaving I switched the hall light on (it's a very small hallway so gets dark very easily!) We met up, did the food shopping and came back in. The hall light was left on and the lid for the bin was still up. I just couldn't believe it. OH said it wasn't a problem and just laughed it off but to me it was a problem as I'd forgotten to do two basic things that most people would do instinctively. I don't know how I did it.
I've also been getting problems with my bowels. I suffer from constipation every day but I get very sudden urges to go. I could eat something, anything - doesn't matter if it's gluten or not - and within an hour I'm on the toilet. It can even happen more than once a day. Movements aren't easy to pass but when they are easy to pass they make my rectum/anus hurt because too much wants to come out at the same time at a fast rate!! :/ I've been eating so much better lately (I'd lost a lot of weight because of the trouble swallowing) but now I'm eating healthier stuff and we both don't eat a lot of bread/wheat products. I was tested for gluten/coeliac disease but I'm not sure if I prepared for it properly. The doctor I was with (who I've since left) didn't tell me to fast/eat gluten before the test but I didn't eat any gluten-containing food anyway.
I hope the meds increase does something soon. xxx
