I am in my 30's and have had P for over 10 years, i travel a lot and try find new things in my travels, i have more than one type of P, i don't let my P rule my life but it can be a bit tricky to keep the P beast calm.
well hello stranger. haven't heard from you in aaages :)
I'm glad your knee and you are doing great. good thing you're in quarantine so now your knee can have extra time to recover. we are all masked up here in SA too, hand sanitizer has triggered few spots on hand but nothing severe. I love the lock down to be honest. Streets are empty and so are the shops. I just LOVE IT. I'm really surprised at how SA is doing during this time. We have a bit of looting but everyone works together by staying at home. I just feel sad for the poor people. Our groceries went up. the price is just insane on food. everything came down except for the food price. ah well, we will survive. Keep safe and good to see you back! :)
Hey Rosie. Oh yes when it comes to certain food, I start itching and flaring.
I can't eat the following food: Pasta, nightshades, dairy, processed food and Red meat but I do eat red meat occasionally.
Food I can eat: Basmati rice occasionally. salads, any veggies work for me. Sweet potato. White meat like chicken and fish. (Oh the fish does wonders for my P. I don't eat gassy foods too much as I've noticed that I start itching when Im bloated so I don't eat it a lot). Cut all junk food out of your diet and all fizzy drinks for starters. No sugary food at all.
My body is used to the food I'm eating so whenever I feel like a chocolate I have it and I don't itch. Same with junk food. I don't eat it often and when I do, nothing happens because I changed the way I eat. I drink turmeric water in the morning as it is a anti-inflammatory spice and very good for a person. It helps keep the inflammation at bay and it works good for me. I also put it in my food as much as I can.
