RSSless: day 7

This will be brief, because I am extremely ill today due to accidentally ingesting gluten in last night’s dinner. The worst part is that I dread eating the next day so much I tend to avoid it until I can’t anymore, and then scarf something vaguely disgusting down just to have some nutrition.

Clearly I am new at managing this disease, and have a lot to learn.

My experiment in giving up my RSS reader for a week is complete. I’ve made my point to myself: I don’t need to keep up with 269 RSS feeds to lead a complete, informed, happy life. Also, I prefer getting my news from communities that encourage participation instead of from one-way news blasts. The exception to this is Twitter, which is eminently useful to me as a means to keeping up with my friends and certain web tools (especially world news and daily weather reports).

That’s all from here tonight. It’s raining, which is a pleasant change from the blustery gray un-springtime. FunkyPlaid is at GAMA; these are my last days living alone. Should I be living it up? And if so, what does “living it up” entail? I sense there might be illicit activities involved, but watching the people wandering my neighborhood in various states of stupors and loss is an excellent deterrent. Sleep, then.

    You have my sympathy. I have to watch my diet because of being diabetic, but even then I don’t get massively ill and end up in bed if I slip and eat one thing with sugar in it. So you most certainly have it worse.

    Eating gluten free is HARD. I’m trying to cut all grains (not just gluten-containing ones) out of my diet due to a suspected intolerance (the difference when I succeeded for a couple weeks last fall was mind-boggling) so I know exactly how you feel. You have my sympathies.
