I've been struggling to get my symptoms under control for about two months now and am doing my best to be careful about what I eat, though I think for me quantity seems to be the biggest issue. I have a co-worker that knows what's going on with my health, but he keeps offering me food I that I can't have! He'll come into the office with fried chicken, french fries, all kinds of greasy, fatty foods, and then offers to share. Sometimes even just smelling the food feels like torture. I don't normally eat poorly, but it's nice to be able to indulge every once in a while, and now I can't indulge at all!
I've also had co-workers comment on the weight I have lost (20 lbs in 2 months with only walking for exercise) and they want to know the secret to my success. After being pestered for so long about it, I finally told them I was sick. The response is always, "Oh", followed by awkward silence. Now there is probably some rumor going around the office that I have cancer.
I know this is a bit off topic, but is anyone else sick of hearing other people whine and complain about inconsequential things that don't really impact their overall well-being? This gets on my nerves even more than the food issue! I feel like saying, "Oh, you want something to really complain about? Let's trade!" I know I'm not dying and there are people out there with illnesses that are much worse, but these symptoms are driving me crazy!
