My bladder vs. the diet test

I keep thinking I can "cheat" sometimes with my food sensitivities, like you sometimes do when you are following a diet to lose weight.  But I had another reminder that one, the diet is helping, and two, I can't cheat.  Sigh.

A few weeks ago I had a major bladder issue again, which I haven't had in months.  I was discouraged because I thought the progress with my bladder was therefore not due to the diet, like I thought, but simply just my m.s. remitting and now relapsing according to the whims of the disease.  And that all this restricting foods was for naught.

I talked to OH about it and had a little cry.  Then suddenly I remembered that I had succumbed to the temptation of ice cream the night before.  Ah-ha!  Maybe that was why.

It was chocolate brownie ice cream, and of that, I'm sensitive to chocolate, sugar, cream and wheat (do brownies have wheat?).  I continued to have bladder urgency for over a week after that, but it was worst that first day.  And I'm back to having none now.

So the moral of the story is "Don't quit now!"
