I think I should pay more attention to my digestive system and stress. I've been on and off of flares since January. I got a lot better during the 10-Day Bone Broth detox and some days after, but I stopped making the broth (which is a breeze in my Instant Pot), and here I am, misery sick. This week, I tried to exercise while in pain, but I felt too weak,

So, on Monday, I went to my Chair yoga class that is a challenge to our muscles. Really, I was expecting a more relaxing thing when I signed for the class, but instead of feeling frustrated and upset, let me consider it another exercise class to lose weight and look for my old Rodney Yee DVD and/or do some practice from his book.

On Tuesday, I went to my Zumba class. I really, really like this class. I exercise so much that I drink almost 4 cups of water in one hour. I love dancing!

On Wednesday, I arrived a bit late to the Salsa class. I had to sit every 15-20 minutes because I was so tired. I took videos, but I extracted these pictures

On Thursday (yesterday), I had to stay on the bed, so much pain. When I felt better, I walked around the house, folded laundry and prepared my bone broth, but instead of drinking it, I decided to boil some yucca (cassava) and eat. Today, I woke up feeling miserable. I took off the fat from the broth and I'm sipping it. I would like to go and exercise with Silver Sneakers and Zumba, but my instinct tells me to stay. I feel like a tiger in jail, but I have to keep calm... Maybe in the evening, I'll go for a walk

    Hi Ana,

    I was diagnosed after a CT scan for my hip with diverticulitis! I know very little about it. I have been looking for a gastroenterologist since last July when my OB/GYN doc called to give the results of my CT scan she ordered to find out the reason for the groin pain since everything else looked "normal" good thing I had it done as my I found out that I have degenerative bone disease in my right hip and then also the diverticulitis.. Have you been to a G.I. doctor? I still have not been able to find one that will agree to see me since I have a full blown stomach stapling or gastric by-pass in the early 80's .. it is super frustrating. I was reading through some of your blogs and just came across this one that caught my attention.

    If there is something that I should know while the patient advocates for our insurance find me a doctor could you please share with me.?

    Thanks you I am keeping you in my prayers dear sweet friend

    Diverticulitis is very serious! You need to go to a doctor. I'm worried about you, my friend. This is not good. Big hugs and get well quickly!
