Yeah my GI could've used more tact but it's still frustrating. I've always had body issues because I was so thin before (one of my hubby's coworker called me chicken legs and when I was working someone called me a Q-tip because of my full head of thick curly hair and skinny body - not exactly ego boosting!) then to gaining this weight. Tho everyone tells me I look healthy now and for the most part I am. Yeah, I still have issues but they're not as devastating as having a UC flare.
As for eating, I tend to over eat in splurges. Like I said most the time my appetite is minimal but every once in a while I can eat everything in the house. But then my life gets busy again and I forget to eat. My hubby is always telling me to eat more too. I know what I'm doing is not healthy but it's not that I'm doing it consciously. However, I have been making an effort to eat at least breakfast (I always have dinner). I usually wake up at 8am but my appetite doesn't hit until about
11am. And trust me, I'm working on this.
But when one gets an injury that limits their mobility, especially when a doc knows my past, and brings something like that up? Well, it's not too encouraging.
