Pizza was a mistake, indeed!
Feb 02, 2009I stayed home today, sick to my stomach. I threw up this AM after taking my pills with liquids. I suspect the pizza I ate yesterday may have gummed up the stoma from my stomach pouch to the intestine, and when I drank enough to fill the small pouch it had no where to go. I laid down, fell asleep and slept for many hours (I guess my body needed it?) and am now sipping liquids ok, though my stomach still feels a little unsettled. Another good lesson learned -- don't experiment off the diet plan!! Yes, I should have known that...in fact, of course I knew that! But then there is the complusive eater in me that has a hard time resisting certain temptations. Good evidence of the absolute need for me to continue working on that part of my problem! I can't believe I would go through ALL THIS and then take a chance on messing up my new anatomy! What was I thinking???? Anyway, hopefully having experienced the down sides of inappropriate experimentation, I will be less tempted, or at least more able to resist the temptations, in the future. Meanwhile, back to work on the OA 12 steps!
