Okay, so I have lost 20 pounds in less than a month, but not in a healthy way. I found out my esophagus and stomach are totally shot. My esophagus is pre-cancerous. I can't eat, and what I do eat comes right back out. I had two medical proce... Read more

Last night at sushi was great. Except that my UC flared up again! I couldn't go home for an hour because I was sick and in pain in the restaurant bathroom. GRRR! This morning I was still really nauseated, but managed not to vomit, then slowl... Read more

When I was a kid, my mom had a rule. It was called "Fruit First". My brother and I hated fruit. She wanted us to eat healthy, so she made us eat it every night before dinner. She and my dad liked fruit, and ate it with their dinner. My brot... Read more

Forgive me, Spark People, for I have sinned. And now I see the error of my ways. I am so good at work! SO good! I promise! I eat well. I do toning exercises. I drink a ton of water. Then I go home, and, WHAT? I DON'T CARE ANYMORE, HAHAH... Read more

I was so sick on Friday! I lose blood (in ways we don't probably want to share) due to my colitis, I get anemic, and I get really tired. Add that time of the month and endometriosis on there, plus a little stress for fun, and you have a very s... Read more

Last night I was sicker than I have been in a long time. The combination of stressful events and whatever is going on inside my body really hit me! And for some reason, I just couldn't sleep. It was one of those things where you are "so tired... Read more
I have to have surgery. AGAIN.

So yesterday's doctor appointment was definitely enlightening, but not in the way I had hoped. It turns out my abdomen is seriously swollen internally, which could be one of the reasons my pants are tight, and I am retaining tons of water, whic... Read more

Okay, so I joined Spark People kind of half-you-know-whatted. I thought maybe I could lose weight via osmosis - you know, everyone else on here would like, somehow, do it for me? I know. It makes no sense at all. For the past two years, no m... Read more
