I was reading the news this morning and saw this headline: "A U.K. teen eats only Tic Tacs after a mysterious illness has left her unable to tolerate any other food."

Poor girl... If she finds out that we put Tic Tacs in our ostomy bags to deodorize them, she won't be able to tolerate them either. sad

I know, it's so sad. She throws up every time she tries to eat. She's being fed by I.V. and went from 80 pounds to 98.

Dx'd Crohn's in '99 at 28. Proctocolectomy and ileostomy in '06.
Pain free, med free, and very thankful to be healthy again :)
