So far, September is not my month for health!
Wednesday, September 18, 2013
This month has been back handing me since the beginning! I've had some great news about getting a new job and I'm maintaining a 100% in my current computer class, my boyfriend is also in job training so they can help him find a job. All of these things have been wonderful and have made this month a lucky one.
On the other hand. I've been bloated beyond belief and my weight fluctuations are everywhere. I've lost then gained and lost some more and gained it back, gah! I'm done with the roller-coaster effect! It's enough to make me want to quit, but I know I won't because I've come this far and I won't quit.
I had a horrible IBS flare the other night leaving me on the bathroom floor for over an hour. I didn't even get sick, I was hoping I would just to get the nausea to go away but it probably wouldn't have helped. It was my own fault, I had some pretzel rods and cheddar cheese from a place called the "rollin-go". I had skipped breakfast because I was having a busy day and I needed something to satisfy. After I ate it I was so bloated. I felt terrible. My lunch came around and I forced myself to eat something so I wouldn't have a long gap between eating again. The bloating got even worse. I had the urge to use the restroom, and boom!! On came the nausea, hit me like a ton of bricks. I regretted everything. Woke up the next morning with a sensitive stomach but I made for sure I made better choices. I admit I had a doughnut, but I had water and it was light, I wasn't sure how it would sit on my stomach. No bloating, went to lunch and got one of the smart one dinners that I've become accustomed to, no bloating. So thankfully it didn't last. NEVER AGAIN! I also know I'll be having flares when I start my new job because it's a new stress and it's in the morning. I'm going to try to get into my GI doctor before I start to see if there's anything I can do to make it more tolerable as I readjust and get used to a new kind of stress.
Between the good news and the bad news I'm pretty much ready for September to be over with. I'm still going to try my best to beat everything, but I know that life happens and it will go on even if I don't want to. So on I go, to complete what I've started. Hopefully this week starts looking up!
