    I would call the doc back and get more info and then see how this result applies to how you are feeling. Let them know you still feel like crap and are looking for real help, not a brush off. Ask them how they came to this conclusion and possible causes.
    Geez I wish I'd thought of all that before. I've talked to them 3 times already. But they're closed now. I don't know much about levels or enzymes and stuff or why so it sounds like they don't know why and are doing a test. So that tells me that perhaps the number was higher/lower than baseline and that's what they're going by. Of course I wouldn't have known because I don't really think that I'll have issues with other body organs. My stomach is all I know and have researched.

    He just said there was mild irritation and I don't really know what that means. It sounds like he doesn't know anymore than I do. Keep in mind he's a GP not a specialist. All he said was he'd have to check with another doctor so I wouldn't have to take any unnecessary tests and waste time/money. Meaning, he doesn't want to test me if I've already been tested.

    I wish the doctor had given me more to go on than avoiding Tylenol and alcohol.
    Can't imagine how I ended up like this in the first place.

    Alright I've had it.
    I don't feel well and this business with my liver is not helping.
    But I've got to try and make an effort to not feel down.

    It's damn frustrating for me not to know how to fix my body.
    Worry isn't helpful, I'm aware.
    But I'm barely eating anything and that can't be good either.
    I suppose I will have to seriously monitor what I consume, even if it's a pain in the butt to track.
    I still question if I need a nutritionist or dietician.
    I tried once before and it didn't work out. I don't want to waste more time and money.

    I'm going to try no chocolate for the month (if I can help it, no chocolate chip Larabars either.) I haven't had bananas in...maybe a week or so but I can't say if I'll leave them out for good. It depends. I may try eating "dinner" foods for breakfast rather than eggs all the time (unless I have bacon, eggs are boring.) If I do eat eggs perhaps I'll up my intake to 3 instead of 2.

    Nuts? I'll keep in. I've been looking forward to fall and the pecans but I'll try hard not to OD on them and may use them if I just need a boost. I try to do squats whenever I see them and gather a handful at a time.

    I'll try for three cups of vegetables at each meal. That's probably not a lot but since I don't eat much I want to build it gradually. I will try not to drink with meals. I will strive to kick my grape habit.

    My body is weird. Some days I can get by with just feeling blah, other days I'm in pain. x_x

    I think I have depression...based only on how I'm feeling, the symptoms. Don't know if it's exclusive to any IBS or nutrient issues. All I know is I'm always crying, always in pain or sick, easily nervous and confused and just feeling like crap.

    So you have stopped posting details here - hope you are keeping a log on your own. Keep track of food, exerecise and how you feel. Hope you find what you are looking for...

    I stopped posting because I keep falling off the wagon.
    Sort of slipped into apathy out of frustration for not knowing how to improve things.
    Sometimes it's like no matter what I eat I feel lousy, even though I realize eating crap won't help.

    The stress over the liver thing has gotten to me I believe as well as not feeling that much better on primal/paleo. I'm not saying I'm giving primal up, but the scale of things to "try" is very overwhelming and I don't know how to tackle it. What I mean is, things to try regarding changing my diet to experiment and see if I improve my IBS or energy levels, joint pain etc.

    Keep a private food log then if you feel judged for what your choices are here. You may find some good in some "less than pure" choices. Did you ever find out any more info about your liver tests? It may or may not be what is causing you to feel bad. If it may be a cause, find out what can be done. It would be a shame if you blame how you feel on your liver if it has little to do with it. If the food thing is still stressing you out, find something new to focus on. A new book or other hobby for example. What will you do that is fun today? Can you pick up buckets of nuts or rake leaves to enjoy fall and feel productive? Find a distraction to take your mind off of how you are feeling.
