Last night, I started having some bad tummy pain (in short bursts, I'm glad it wasn't constant) and bathroom troubles... I think I know why. Friend took me out to eat yesterday.... I couldn't refuse... my friend was so insistent, and I did need to get out of the dorm (besides the times I get out for class) But now I'm paying for it... I didn't even eat anything bad.... probably just too much... but man.... I'm still feeling it today... :(....

Wish this kind of thing wouldn't happen... I always feel so stupid, afterwards...

On a positive note, at least I'm not freaking out about it....

I did a similar thing this past weekend. For the past few weeks, not only have I had bowel issues, I've had stomach pains which I believe to be a stomach ulcer. These two things have caused me not to eat very much lately. Ensure has been my dinner most nights.

Anyway, last Saturday I had the opportunity to hang out with my 19-year old cousin. It was a girl's day out and we ate lunch at Olive Garden. I had the cheese ravioli, we split a cheese dip appetizer, I ate a little salad, one bread stick and then we split a raspberry cheesecake.........HOLY COW! It was system-overload!!!

I fell asleep at 7:30 that night. I woke up in the 8:00, 10:00, 11:00, 12:00, 1:00, 3:00 and 4:00 hours with painful gas and loose bowels. By 4:30am I was also dry-heaving at the same time. This went on every hour until 11:00 that morning. I've felt OK since then.

I KNEW I shouldn't be eating that much...my system wasn't used to all that food. BUT IT WAS SO GOOD!!!!! And I had such a nice time with my cousin, it was almost worth it.

Celey don't beat yourself up about it, we ALL do it. Last Friday I was craving chips and salsa, and I gave into the craving. Paid for it for the rest of the weekend. But it was yummy:)

I think we need to cheat once in awhile. There are so many things we can't eat, I just think the desire wins out sometimes. Other times I just want to eat it, consequences be darned!!

I agree. We cannot restrict ourselves all the time! When I know I am eating something I will pay for later, I just make sure I savour every bite so I can get as much pleasure from it as possible! Food is too good to avoid all the time!

Celey, i can completely understand the guilt and disappointment with yourself but I think the one thing about this disease is that it is so unforgiving and unpredictable. The one thing I have learn to accept is that I am not the boss but assistant manager and my job is to take my meds, get a good nights sleep, exercise and eat well. I used to get down on myself EVERY time I flared thinking what did i do to cause it and most of the time i had done nothing! When I let go of thinking like that I felt a weight lifted of my shoulders. Chin up honey x x

Thanks, guys... Your support is appreciated... It's just... ehh... I guess my conscience likes to pick on me... I still feel a little bad...

And Cayer... *lol* I wish I was the boss.

I just ate a small bowl of ice cream and a spoon of chocolate icing... what the heck! Sometime you just have to give in. I have been trying Gluten free for over a month, lactose free, junk free.... but today! I tipped the glass. If I wasn't pregnant wine would of been in there as well.

Oh Celey...I know how you feel. College is so stressful sometimes that some foods you want to indulge in just to feel better mentally...I definitely miss a lot of different comfort foods.
I would do that last semester with my fiance and order these AMAZING sandwiches from the mall food court or get dessert from macaroni grill, but it kept me from getting better so I had to find healthy junk food e.g. chocolate soymilk, nana's no cookies, frozen coconut milk(great substitute for ice cream!!), or fage yogurt with canned peaches that come in their own juice as opposed to syrup.

Seriously though, exams and studying are killers sometimes that it's so hard not to give in.

I hope you feel better soon though...

What did you eat anyway if you don't mind my asking?

I am sorry to hear you are feeling bad. Please try not to kick yourself too much for enjoying yourself and paying for it later....we have all been there and done that:)

I hope it passes quickly for you. I can't imagine trying to work though college with Crohns even though I believe God doesn't give us more than we can handle.

 Celey,
   nono Please stop stressing yourself out. You could make yourself very ill, by trying to kick yourself in the bum, and you will never succeed, so don't set yourself up for failure. I have done the same many times, and as you know I'm one of those freaks that think diet plays a huge role in our disease, but I have had the same response to things I can't control like smells and chemicals including friends cologne and petroleum jelly. Take care! wink

     Be Patient And Tough, Someday This Pain Will Be Useful To You
               I get by with a lotta help from my friends!     
 Crohn's DG 2003 , symptoms included terrible joint and soft tissue pain, just met first cousin who suffers from Reactive Arthritis-explains sooo much.
      Followed SCD Strictly 2003-06, then modified by adding new things 10-12 days apart to avoid delayed reactions in the form of arthritis symptoms. Scope on 2-5-09 was great! Doc says no symptoms,No scope for 10 years!!!

yeah We've all been there. (Furtive crumbs off whiskers brushing motion emoticon) wink
I've been on a gluten and dairy free diet for about fifteen years now, and my body is still "learning" that some things aren't right. It keeps telling me that it's "natural" to eat certain things that the rest of the observable human race has no problems with - and right enough, I have all the necessary olofactory receptors and intestinal plumbing to want them, so I do. It's only when you have had the necessary pain and misery very obviously as a result of transgression that your body really begins to wise up. Eg, eat a slice of bread, pooh blood and writhe in pain an hour later.
nono Eat a slice of bread with a full meal then do that, body isn't too bright shakehead....decidedly dim in fact. eyes It's a learning curve we are all on.
And for the record - I think Margie will back me up on this one - trying to kick yourself in the bum leads to an awfully sore knee and a banged head when you land ! smilewinkgrin turn

*lol* I don't want to kick myself in the bum... It's uncomfortable and hurting enough already with the hemmorroids and all...

I'm feeling a bit more upbeat today. My tummy isn't bothering me so much... Phew.

Well, LMills,I went out to eat to a restaurant called Ryan's that day....

I had some sweet potatoes, fish (a lot... I can't help it. I love fish), a biscuit, three rolls (I love bread, too), broccoli.... and then, as if I hadn't already made a complete fool of myself by gorging to my heart's content... //-_-\\'... And because my friend was so encouraging... I had some cherry pie. And to wash it all down... Two glasses of sweet tea... Very sweet tea. And... well... to give you an idea of what I think is 'very sweet'...

Before I had this disease.... when I was a kid.... I would dump at least seven-ten packs of sugar in my glass of tea. And sometimes I'd add an extra one because I still didn't think it was sweet enough... *LOL*

So... Imagine what the tea must've been like if I, I of all people, thought it was 'very' sweet. *LOL*

Oh god I used to love Ryan's...their rolls and biscuits are out of this world..and I have a really hard time not ordering sweet tea. It is one of my favorites...
How can you NOT stuff yourself when you're there?

And, if it makes you feel any better, I made the same mistake last night by having tomato sauce with onion pieces on top of my chicken. Am paying for it in full today.

*Hugs* Man, it sure is a shame we can't stuff ourselves with whatever we want and how much we want... *lol*

Heh... I was feeling so guilty and self-conscious, I was half-expecting someone to reply to that post... "Well, no WONDER you got sick..."

Not to say anything bad about you guys, of course... That's just what my conscience has been telling me... //^_^\\'
