Things Not to Take for Granted: Digestion

My blogging and a lot of other things were interrupted by the nastiest bout of gastroenteritis I’ve experienced. It’s clear in hindsight that I was suffering mild symptoms for weeks before they became severe symptoms, and I am very grateful it ultimately succumbed to antibiotics.

Each time I’ve added a food back to my diet and didn’t get sick, it’s been a thrill.

It’s unnerving that we’re increasingly less able to expect antibiotics to work.

Anyone out there with a chronic digestive condition managing to get on with things – I salute you.
