GRR! We are just having a bad week huh Jackie???
Thanks for being there for me while it sounds like you were feeling yucky. You have a big heart.
This alien/monster is so frustrating. We have to work so hard to make little progress. This diet makes it very hard to live life when it becomes unpredictable or changes from the regular. Plus the added stress and wanting to be there for your friend. I can understand why you did what you did.
How long were you on antibiotics? I’m sure it’s on here somewhere on the forum, but may I ask again? I was on them for acne for probably 3+ years. At the time I loved them because they helped me so much. Now…if I could I would gladly change that. They have ruined many of our lives.
What you described about eating the almonds and having a hard time stopping is something I used to do frequently. I would eat chips or carby snacks right out of the bad and tell myself over and over “one more handful”. I could easily eat half or more of a bag depending on what it was. This must be our alien/moster doing this… I always get concerned when I enjoy something new too much. 🙁
Maybe in a few years doctor will catch up with this issue and we will be able to go to them for help. With everyone experiencing this…they can’t ignore it forever!
I wish you a comfort soon! And I hope your mouth doesn’t get as bad as last time. Try not to be too mad at yourself. We have all done it and many of us will do it again. This battle is a huge learning experience….to put it nicely. If I ever get to a point where I don’t have constipation…then I KNOW I will do something similar.
Big “get well” hug!
