If you’ve read my blog for a while, you’ll know that one of my blog “staples” is a monthly reflection post on how my month was and what my goals are for the next month.
A few months ago, I told you about my troubles with IBS and how I’m constantly feeling poorly. I tried the FODMAP diet but found that it wasn’t helping as much as I would have liked it to – so I decided to take it further.
I am very, very fortunate that my company pays for us to have BUPA insurance so I was able to go private to get further testing into my tummy issues.
I recently had a colonoscopy, which wasn’t the most pleasant experiences but luckily I was sedated so I don’t remember as much about it! Thank you so much to those of you on Twitter who helped me with what to expect so I wasn’t so afraid!
They didn’t find anything from the colonoscopy, but they did find something on the ultrasound of the abdomen and pelvis I had the next day – I have a cyst on my right ovary which could be causing my problems. They’re not super worried about it though, so I’m just waiting to see what happens now with that! At least I am now getting answers!
In other aspects of life, things are fairly quiet. Work is very busy but I’m still really enjoying it which is good! Unfortunately, it has just meant that when I get home I’m so tired I haven’t had a chance to work on my blog, but hopefully I can work out a routine for that now!
November promises to be a pretty good month, I’m going to a friend’s wedding, I’m going for a weekend away in Edinburgh at the end of November which I’m really excited about! And hopefully Dan and I will get some more time together, he recently started a new job and has been really busy too. 2016 seems to be the year of not having enough time! How is it basically November already?!
Anyway, how have you all been?! Please feel free to let me know what you’ve all been up to in the comments below! <3
