|Rule 4: Bowel problems are going to affect you in ways you didn’t expect.|
People will not always recognise that your constant changes in diet, energy and temperament are not capriciousness but actually a response to you wanting to become more stable. You may feel ostracised. You may actually be ostracised. Accept this might happen to you and you can then defeat it. There is no easy answer but there are ways to help including: making it a schedule that you inform others of your diet ahead of parties; getting comfortable asking whoever is cooking to check the ingredients; let people know when the pain is roaring in your ears. This is a really tricky rule to deal with and if you manage it, please let me know as I would love some tips for myself!
