Hello my fellow travellers:
I had a tough night last night.  I think I made a bad choice of food.  I want to call in sick tomorrow if I don't feel better.  I just don't know how I am going to deliver a Christmas load of Monday weight mail, six miles on my feet through 8 inches of snow in five degree weather if it still hurts like this????   I can't call in though and dump it on my co-workers.  Some of them, though able bodied, will call in just cause they don't wanna do it.  Just ain't my style.   Whine over
So here is what I think I did wrong: I bought a great big onion and sauteed it.  It was delicious and sweet.  I think that is what kept me in pain all night.  Can anybody verify this from personal experience?  I never thought about onions having a lot of fiber but I think what I had was a fiber overload?????  What do you think?  Thanks all

I think that onions are just a general no-no.  I have to use them very sparingly, which is a shame because I love ALL things oniony, including the smell.
 
Be good today, stay away from red meat and fiber foods.  Hopefully you'll feel better tomorrow.  (I've found that metamucil capsules work wonders for diarrhea.)
 
I'll see if I can dig up the info I've read on onions.

Thanks for the feed back everyone. I am improving and think I will manage OK tomorrow. Very funny Randy. With folks like you and Sniper on the forum I have to choose my words carefully!! That's the best part of posting here perhaps.
I love onions too but I think I will not eat them two pounds at a time in the future. Maybe if I dye them blue?!

PB4 the links you provide show nothing but the good of onions. One more thing that I can not enjoy at least in large quantity. I am allergic to all fruits and vegetables unless they are thoroughly cooked to death. I'd can't eat an apple but I can eat applesauce or pie for example.
Meat and potatoes man I am...
Thanks for the interesting read.

I did know there were some of us around and you are correct I am City letter carrier. Based on the weather I am wishing I was retired too. :( I am feeling better this evening so I'm not so down like I was this morning. It's nice to be able to talk with folks here who understand the demands of the job and how "the disease" complicates it.

I can handle a little onion sprinkled on my food, but a whole onion would for sure make me ill! Probably even before Crohn's! lol

I know I know. I accept the IDIOT award of the day. It wasn' just any onion. It was nearly the size of a grapefruit. This would apparently be twice the size of my brain give or take. lol

Onions usually don't like me much. I've had onion rings on occasion and have been alright, but more than a handful of them gives me problems.

The sauteeing might not have helped. I know everyone is different, but I have only finally recently discovered/realized that grease really does me in. Even olive oil. Fried stuff is generally a no-no, but this seems to go beyond that. Anyone else have a problem with oil and grease or is it just my crazy self?

Is it possible you have a problem with fructose?

I know that I can't eat onions and also have a real hard time with anything fried. That seemed to be one of the things that made my doctor think about Crohn's. But a good onion ring once in a while can't kill me, right? Haha!

Did you mean me Ivy? I don't know that I have a problem with Fructose but I don't trust the stuff and try to avoid it. Not just because it sounds like a cuss word but there is some research that it may trigger weight gain and rebound hunger.
Fried foods don't seem to bother me much. I just went way over board with that onion. I made it through my work day today and I am off tomorrow.
I am learning. You folks are wonderful in the way you help me and each other.
AB let's meet for onion rings sometime soon. I'll bring the Charmin! :)

I hear you Randy. I have always been really good to my customers and they like me, despite the bills I deliver. Payback came when my Crohns went crazy a couple years back. So bad that I sometimes had to stop at two customer's homes on one walking loop!! I knew who was home and they knew me and let me into their HOMES without question. I even had three customers tell met that they never lock their doors when they go out and that I should just walk in if I need to when they are not home. I never did that though. That was when I started "coming out". (I love saying that.) After that, anytime I took a couple days off many of my customers would stop the Subs and ask where I was and am I allright. My co-workers are amazed how concerned they are about me. I don't know what I will do now if they keep re-adjusting routes and I get bumped off this route after 11 years. Not only am I attached to my customers and will miss them but I won't know where to go when I got to go really fast!!!!

Yes, FunGuy, I did mean you :-).

The dietitians suspect that I have some food sensitivities on top of my Crohn's and have been quizzing me lately about my responses to certain foods, and they seemed to be particularly interested in whether I could tolerate onions, which is why your post rang alarm bells for me... especially as you also said you had trouble coping with certain fruits and veg.

The FODMAPs approach is fairly new, I think... but it does sound (to me, anyway) as if it may have some relevance for you.

Try that Google search and see what you think. I'm just learning about this stuff myself so would feel more comfortable if you did some reading on your own instead of relying on anything I told you :-).

Wow Ivy, small world on the onions. I will check out FODMAPs. I am allergic to all fruits and veggies unless cooked and some I have become so sensitive to I can't even eat them cooked ie. carrots. I hope I will understand this before I am a great granddad

I just took a quick look at the FODMAPs and I am not sure what to think. Most of the items they list don't bother me at all like white bread and pasta. I love bread but if I eat a lot of bread late though i will get reflux. They do mention onions but in moderation i THINK I'm ok with them. Soy seems to hurt me. I am not sure about this. I think high fructose corn syrup is worth avoiding even just for the calories not to mention the other bad possibilities. I don't drink much soda anymore. This bears watching.

I'm the same: I'm not sure it fully applies to me either.

They are arranging a whole series of breath tests for me to see if I have malabsorption / sensitivity issues, so perhaps this is something you could explore for yourself, just so you could rule certain food groups in or out of your diet.

Ivy this is Fascinating stuff. I have never heard of any of these tests and things you mention. Please let me know what you find out. Someone on here posted something about a different type of food allergy a few weeks ago. I don't remember what she called it but I should check it out. I have only heard of one other person who has this allergy like me. A young girl in the Grocery store said her Dad had the same deal where he could eat processed or well cooked fruits and veggies but reacted to Raw food.

Good luck
