My life has been rather up side down lately and I have not been eating much in the mornings.
Wake up at maybe 9-11 and don't start to eat until 15-17 and eat almost until I go to sleep at 12.

I feel so much better :)
The trips to the toilet are fewer I am not in as much rush as I used to be and just over all better.
The only thing that is worse now is my GERD and my anxiety :S

Just have to figure that out and then I am fine.

Do you feel better if you eat at night?

scoolisergodur, I've also figured out that starting to eat late afternoons is smart for me. For some reason I can't get a good read as how my bodies doing until I've been awake for at least 3-4 hours. The only time I eat soon after waking is when my hunger is what wakes me. If I'm hungry but unsure if eating would be good for me due to no bowel movements or silent bowels, I have coffee and see how my bowels react. When I start to eat I eat smaller amounts and wait to see my bodies reaction (half hourish), then continue to eat small amounts about ever half hour til bedtime. As for the GERD if you take something for it (I take Nexium) try switching when you take it. I used to take it upon wakening but was having times when it didn't work so I started taking it at night and now have no problems with GERD. Glad to hear the volcano's not affecting you!smile Rob

I always feel better eating small meals. I don't do "times" What is normal dinner time for one say between 5-7PM, I just eat small meals throughout the day.

I would explode and be pissed if I was forced to sit at a dinner table and eat a full-course meal. It's just how the UC/Crohns works. Those who have it understand it best, really..

I have read that the probiotic L. Reuteri is helpful in dealing with GERD/acid reflux issues.  I can say that my son has reflux and I do notice less burping from him when he is on L. reuteri.
