So, I've been struggling with digestive issues for weeks now. Never happened to me before in my life. And while the actual symptoms are annoying, I'm also starting to feel a little depressed just thinking about fighting this. I haven't been googling (that much), I'm keeping calm, but I'm not finding much to look forward to.
I no longer feel like I even enjoy eating. All it takes is one slip up and I suffer the consequences. No more going out for drinks, no pizza, no birthday cake, and it makes me increasingly sad to have to cook two dinners. One for my boyfriend that has all the foods I used to love and one for myself that's bland, and even the bland things make me burp for hours.
Before I started having this problem I ate pretty well. I'd occasionally have indulgent food on the weekend, but I ate tons of veggies and fruits, avoided dairy, and ate limited amounts of whole grains if I had any carbs. I miss spices and I miss hummus.
I know it's not a huge deal and others are suffering from much worse problems, but I just wanted to complain, get it out of my system.
