If you didn't leave July with a bang, don't worry, I did that for you! In all the most not-good ways, the foreseeable future of the month of August is not going to be very fun or relaxing. It all starts with those random hives I got a few weeks ago and mentioned in passing over here. Well, it kept (keeps) happening and I've been trying to narrow it down, as it's gotten worse. I'll be getting good ole' allergy testing down next week so fingers crossed for an answer! I also went to see my GI doc for a routine bi-annual follow-up and things were not good. I neglected getting one specific test which may give us an answer to a persistent problem, but we thought things were okay and it wouldn't be needed.
Honestly, once I have more answers I'll give you a real update. I realize I never did, even from over a year ago when my body basically broke on me. Just know that August may be a bit slow over here. We only have one (delicious) post going out next week (plus the Finisher). But don't worry, I'm still "here"! See you next week! By the way, is it really August?!
