A new me, a new life.

So a little bit ago blog post a wrote about my doctors appointment. I was diagnosed with IBS and the doctor gave me a prescription to deal with some of the issues. It works, not 100% but it does take more of the pain away. The only issue is my anxiety, depression and insomnia sky rocketed, so I went back to the doctor to get that figured out.

My first Ipsy!

I have been wanting to sign up for a little treat for a while. As a mom of 3, its nice to feel good plus try something new. That's why these beauty boxes are perfect. Plus they are fun, its a little surprise in the mail once a month!

The price is also great. Its not a huge hit on the bank account. Its $10usd, so in Canada it comes to just under $20 after shipping and conversion.

You can also collect points to get even more free stuff. If you would like to check Ipsy out just click on the link here.

<-----  Some one was super excited. She didn't even know what it was but it was pink!

Here is what I got in my first bag!

Finally went in to see the doctor!

For years I have had issues with my "tummy," between the heart burn, digestive issues, bathroom issues and so on, life has been in the dumps, literally. Things have been slowly getting worse and worse and finally I got talked into seeing the doctor.
Yesterday was my appointment and I was not sure what I was going to expect but it got uncomfortable. By the end of the appointment the doctor is suggestion I get tested for IBS (Irritable bowel syndrome) and celiac. I do know I have just an over all food intolerance, everything I eat makes me sick. So I am very interested to see what happens. I do have to bring in samples to get tested, as well as a 8-10 hour fast before blood tests. I am hoping to get in to do that tomorrow morning before a class I have at 10am, so y goal for today is to try and get those samples (yes I am trying to be vague, I am not very good at "bathroom" talk.)
I did start a food diary to, I think this is a huge reason I have been really bad at my meal plans. I is really hard to work around being sick. So, I really hope to find out what is wrong and I know I will be diving into research and seeing what I can do to fix myself and I will try and write about it as much as I can, as I go down this road.

Easter Dinner Leftover Cassarole

Every holiday we go to my in-laws for the big turkey dinner. They raise there own turkeys and there is nothing like a farmed raised turkeys. And this Easter I somehow got loaded up with a ton of leftover, including the turkey bones. So I did boil that down already and made broth and I will be stripping all the meat from the bone but that is for later. Today I made this fun casserole, which was inspired by a shepherds pie.
So if you are loaded with leftovers and want something a bit different to try, give this a shot and spice it up with extra seasons to, if you want to change it up!

Oh, I do miss writing. It has been a while and I have thought about restarting a lot but never really thought I had anything to say. Then it occurred to me that it doesn't really matter if I have something important to say, or anything important doing on in my life but sometimes it is just nice to sit and write. Changes happen and the main focus us this blog has changed throughout the last few years. I have even went through and deleted posts, which I wish I didn't do but I hope to refill it.

I do have a lot of fun things going on in my life now, between studding herbalism, still trying to figure school out, and also my garden, my family, my health and everything else in between.

I do hope everyone still we follow me and read all the fun new posts!
