I'm going to be really open today.
I have hemmed and hawed over talking about this because it's sensitive, some of it is gross, and I just wasn't sure if it was something worth posting.
But then I said to myself, if I were to have read this a year and a half ago, would it have helped me? And the answer was yes.

It's not just a dietary choice, it's a lifestyle. Which sounds like a canned and corny response, but it is 100% the truth.
I have felt sick since 2008(Maybe even 2007).
That's five years, people.
After many months of trying to determine what food was making me so sick, I finally landed upon dairy. Awesome. The one food product I eat at every single meal.
Let's say this is about early 2009.
Over the next two years, I feel moderately better by avoiding dairy as much as possible. I stop drinking milk, eating sour cream, yogurt, and ice cream. So basically, the best foods ever.
In 2011, I started feeling awful again. And more frequently.
Like very day I felt lethargic, uncomfortable, and(sorry for this) about once a week I spent the better part of the day in the bathroom.
