Below is my five minute #freewrite on today's prompt: gout
If you've never written a Freewrite before please visit today's post by @mariannewest
I'm sitting here in the dark during a flash flood warning and a tornado warning for San Antonio, so I decided to do today's Freewrite. Ever since I received my stomach stint I've been on a liquid diet, protein drinks, pudding, jello, soups, and lots of water. I'm tolerating the liquid diet ok, but the best thing ever is I haven't had a gout attack in months. I hope I didn't jink myself! I get my attacks all over, my right ankle, wrists, and sometimes my elbow. I think most people get gout in their big toe. I remember my first attack, I thought I had broken my ankle and crawled to get to the toilet to pee. It was crazy painful. That attack lasted almost seven days. Once I was diagnosed with gout I started taking Allopurinol every day to lessen my attacks. I guess I could have changed my diet but I really like rare beef alot. I guess now I don't need to worry about having a steak anytime soon. Stay safe my friends.
