Welcome to the world of non-dairy. I’m not lactose intolerance, mine is an allergy called eosinophilic esophagitis. I’ve been dairy free for about 5 1/2 years now. If you have any questions about diary substitutes or anything I’m happy to give my thoughts.Struggle bus first - that way we end on the positive! I've been cutting dairy out of my diet due to the lactose intolerance suspicions. I must have eaten a lot of dairy before, because I'm having withdraws. My head hurts right between my eyes and it's hurt like this for 3 days now. I know it's withdraws because, I've been eating a Babybel cheese once a day when I get to my tipping point. About 10 mins later my headache will ease up.. but an hour later my stomach hurts worse than my head ever did! I've also been eating super unhealthy because I feel miserable so no time to cook, so I feel even extra miserable. When I've quit soda in the past, these type of headaches usually last a week. SOOOoo I'm hoping that I only have a couple more days left.
Thanks! I actually do kind of have a question.. What doctor do I go to for this? My primary care Dr? an Allergist? is there a gut specialist or something like that?? And if there is do I need a recommendation? I'm 99.9% sure that is the issue because cutting out dairy has helped and eating dairy pretty much kills me., but I'd like to know the why? Like why for 28 years have I been completely fine but now all of a sudden the cheese has plotted it's revenge? And I know that only a Dr can answer that, I just don't know what Dr to go to.Welcome to the world of non-dairy. I’m not lactose intolerance, mine is an allergy called eosinophilic esophagitis.

I will try to set my finish line song for certain races, namely Star Wars. I may or may not have set it up to play The Throne Room from the original Star Wars movie as I crossed the finish line and received my medal. So you're not the only one who attempts finish line songs.Hopefully I’ll finish during the first time; however, this is my finish line song so I don’t mind listening to it 3 times in a row for it to continue being my finish line song. I’m weird – I know. It’s just become a thing.
Added! I've never read or watched Game of Thrones - Should I add that to the list too?? I tend to be weary of things that are "too popular."Check out Binge Mode. They have done two great deep dives into Harry Potter and Game of Thrones.
I love listening to books while I run because it usually pulls my focus away from the not so fun parts of running; however, this book was not a good one to listen to while running. I think that's why I struggled to get into it so much.I’m impressed that you were able to listen to LOTR while running! I’ve learned that my attention fades in and out a lot while running (sometimes I’m noticing my surroundings, focusing on my pace or lost in thought), so actual books don’t work for me. I enjoy podcasts and depending on my mood either listen to inspirational running podcasts or fluffy entertainment content. I like I’ll Have Another Podcast for running content, or I browse around to see what other podcasts have had a guest I’m interested in. On the light side, I watch a couple of reality tv shows and like to listen to podcasts that recap them. Often I don’t have time to watch the latest episode, so I’ll find the motivation to get outside and run so I can listen to the recap .
I totally have Good to be Alive on my race playlist and think it’s a great pick for a finish line song - I think I probably got the idea from one of your prior posts!
I actually started with the hobbit because people warned me that it was an easier read. I think if I do read or listen to the actual LOTRs stories, it won't be happening while I running. It will be when it's the only thing I have to focus on.Did you finish all of Lord of the Rings or just Fellowship of the Ring?
I once heard someone complain about how they really liked the movie version of Fellowship of the Ring but felt like it ended too abruptly. I said that's exactly how the book ended since it was part one and they replied "It's based off a book?!?!"
I love the book, but it takes commitment to read.
