I went to the diner last night with one of my friends and ordered a wrap that came with fries.

I really should NOT have eaten the fries. I am regretting every bite right now. And I only had half the order, too.

Intestines, I hate you.

There's a place close to home that makes fries that are rolled around in a home-made cajun spice mix as soon as they come out of the fryer. They taste great! (...but I have learned to stay away from them).

i.e. POTATOES + DEEP FRIED + CAJUN SPICE MIX = FLARE-O-RAMA

There's a home run diner in my town that I had fries from last night... I also ate pizza, but that is fine for me since I only have cheese on it. I'm not feeling so good right now! sad

tofu-Yeah, and the thing is, I'm not even that much of a fry person, but they were on my plate (and curly fries, which are the best kind).

Rio-I can't even imagine my intestines after that. Fried AND spicy? *shudder*

laura-pizza doesn't bother me, mostly it's fried food, fatty food, and caffeine (I miss my coffee soooo much!)

Same here sweetmelody - also can eat fries in moderation.  We all have to find out what bothers us and deal with it accordingly and be prepared to be sick if we don't behave!!

Poor thing. I was asking myself the same thing when I drank about 5 margaritas the other night. Why do we do this to ourselves? For me, the ketchup is worse than the fries. I try to keep both to a minimum though. I Hope you feel better quickly.

Because you want to do what most other 20-somethings do--- enjoy a meal out with friends. It's hard to resist temptation at times. Maybe you can ask a friend or friends to help you resist-- for example, by sharing an order of fries where you agree to just eat a few. (That's only if they're not heavily seasoned.) Sometimes it works to tell yourself: "I don't NEED this and it will make me feel sick." Hang in there! Hope you feel all better by tomorrow. / Old Hat (30 yrs with left-sided UC ... [etc.])

Old Hat-my friend DID eat half my order, and gladly (bottomless pit that he is) XD And thanks. I usually try to get veggies instead of fries if I can, but our waiter didn't seem to speak very good English.

notsosicklygirl-Margaritas, crap-I remember the last time I tried to do tequila and it did NOT end well. Felt like my intestines were gonna crawl out and die.

My boyrfriend ate half my order of fries last night. HAHA! I still felt it a lot this morning though. Oh well. I lived through it. I just couldn't really sit down for a few hours after, but I made it. =]

With us youngins it's hard to resist... Especially if we got this stupid illness before we really knew what 'fun' really was!

Tell me about it. I finally get to the age where I need coffee to function and can actually go out to a bar, etc, and my tummy says no.

And while it's tempting to go 'screw it' and do whatever anyway...darn, do you pay in spades later.

Don't think it is any easier for us "old" folks.  Being diagnosed at age 67 has not been easy.  I have had IBS for years but could still eat fried food, etc. in moderation.  Now doctors are "TRYING" to take my coffee away.  My choice says no way!!  I only drink two 3/4 cups every morning and stay away from caffeine otherwise.  I am not sure most food cause my UC any problems - maybe the worst is raw food and grains that go through as they go in if you know what I mean!!

These are my "golden" years - sure wish I could enjoy them more!

Fast or greasy food doesn't bother me, in fact potato chips and fries are easy on my gut.

But I did a dumb thing a while back, ate almost an entire bad of sweet potato chips, the spicy kind. They were so good. Then I was miserable. I think anyone would have been!
