Dude, there is NO WAY that I could EVER give up all of the above completely.
My doctor has diagnosed me with IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome). >:( WTH?! I've been cursed!
I've been keeping a food journal so that I can see what foods affect me.
I have noticed that I can eat homemade quick pickles with no problem, but not store bought.
Homemade pickled carrots don't seem to bother me.
Malt Vinegar doesn't seem to bother me either.
And I can still handle dark chocolate without any major issues. Thank God!
Tomato sauce, tomato paste and dill relish leave me hurting and promising myself that I will never touch it again. :(
I'm feeling much better overall. The doc upped my dosage of Protonix, so now I take it twice a day instead of once and it has stopped the nausea. That has made a huge difference!
It sucks when you have to watch what you eat and worry that the next bite you take might have you sick for a few hours. Grrr!
I'm hanging on to hope that I won't have IBS for the rest of my life. A girl can dream.
