Since I am always telling you how hard I am working on my term papers, exams, and my thesis. I thought I would take a picture of my favourite study area at school. On the weekends when the class rooms are empty I like to do my studying on the 8th floor of Oslo University College. The building was newly opened last year just before Christmas time, so we are among the first students to use it. On the top floor it has a terrace you can go out on to clear your head, and I love to sit overlooking the terrace and the view of the city. It is a good place to rest my eyes when I am thinking, room to think. (All pictures taken with my new Sony Ericsson G502)
When I looked at the picture though I realized that I was looking up some old vices I didn’t realize at the time I was giving up. You see I have been feeling chronically exhausted for quite some time, and have had a lot of other minor irritations. I went to a specialist in holistic medicine this week to find out what changes I should make in my habits to beat this awful tiredness. After an extensive review of my history from childhood illnesses to my parents and grandparents help, plus lots of questions about my symptoms, he had a suspicion that I was suffering from food intolerance.
He thinks that I have an allergy against milk protein, and possibly wheat – or worse gluten. So I have been milk free and wheat free since Tuesday. At first I thought, well this is crazy, I have been brought up on milk and white bread. But something in my system isn’t working right and I am desperate…so I gave up my Caffe Lattes and pressed baguettes with melted cheese. The milk in my coffee really seems to be the biggest sacrifice so far. A daily ritual which was more like a passion for me.
Thankfully it seems to be working. Yesterday I seemed to have a bit more energy and felt like I was coming out of my fog. Today when I woke up I felt, well awake. I feel like I have had more energy then I have had i years!!
So now I am feeling free like a bird. Like this friendly little young seagull we met on our trip to the Opera house last weekend. I’m sure you have all seen our trip to the Opera on RennyBA’s Terrella???
