ugh, liquid diet. i was just on a liquid diet in the hospital for 7 days. this year long flare sucks ass and i had to go in to hospital 2 weeks ago it got so bad. i lost so much weight in there i got down to 100lbs. im now 108 2 weeks later.
about 6 months ago (still during flare of course) i saw a dietician and we spent over 3 months on all different types of diets.
-no residue diet
-no fiber diet
-low residue/low fiber diet
-fruit and veg diet
-just those resource drinks and ensure and sustagen...
i tell ya what, none of them gave any relief or helped out.
so now, i eat anything and everything i want unless it hurts ... which from the last 2 days i have just figured out seeds are bad. i had poppy seed bagels last 2 days and the blood came back.
the last 2 weeks i have had no colitis symptoms at all until the last 2 days. im hoping that it is the seeds rather than the flare starting up again now that i had gotten it under control FINALLY!
im on 50mg of prednisone a day and it is taking its toll! i dont feel like a person anymore. and i am so moody and mean and quick to get angry. i just feel down in the dumps.. not to mention that i can't sleep. jeez that sucks.
been getting a lot of art done tho.
anyhoo... diets.. i guess its all about how it makes YOU feel in the end. cuz everyone is different!
