Honestly I was feeling so good that I was eating everything in site... going out to eat a lot, drinking beers, just having a good time. I guess it was nice to escape from reality for a little while but I guess it caught up to me.
I understand. We've probably all been there... you're feeling better, you just want to eat "normal" stuff like everyone else... and perhaps, at first, things don't seem to bother you really go crazy and you end up paying the price. It's a hard lesson to learn.
Maintaining a healthy diet, getting rest and exercise, avoiding alcohol are all things that can help you, but you have to decide if you're willing to make the commitment.
