Having Ulcerative Colitis and knowing I should avoid doughy pizza I ordered one anyway!!
I knew it would not end well, but I ate it regardless because I was determined to have a good time. I had convinced myself that as it was my birthday I was some kind of super hero.
Wonder Woman I am not...
Today I am in pain and I feel horrible. I don't fully regret it because it was totally yummy, but is it fair to have this pain simply because I pigged out on pizza?! I was aware it was one of my 'trigger' foods (one that makes my Ulcerative Colitis worse) but gluten free pizza is just not the same. Therefor it was a treat.
I, like I'm sure others of you... have become pretty good at hiding when I'm not feeling great. I don't bother grumbling to family members any more because I feel like they have heard enough. This evening I could no longer stifle a happy smile as the only way I could make myself feel better was to double up in half and shuffle around the house like a plonker.
It's back to bed for me to rest and chill out! Good thing I never went on an all night drinking session then isn't it?
