My last pill…

Just now, I took the last set of pills I will take for this horrible stomach bacteria. I can safely say that I’m wholly glad and hope to never see another set of treatment like this again. It was terrible, I felt terrible and I lost 15 pounds. My cloths… they now all hang off me. Seriously, stuff that looked good on me a couple of months ago, now looks like a tent!


That’s right, I lost 15 pounds. That’s a lot of weight to lose because you simply cant eat or your stomach feels so back you cant eat or you don’t want to eat because it won’t stay down. Losing the ability to eat was worse than when I lost the ability to pee a few years back. I was taking V!0xx and I just stopped. It was a very frightening thing.


I am still not eating a lot. In fact, my portions are about 1/4 the size they were before this thing started. I can no longer drink something like Diet Pepsi because it makes my stomach feel so dodgy. I need to stick with stuff like Vernors, Sprite, 7-UP & Squirt… they make me feel better.


I cannot eat fried things at this time… I’m steering clear of that. Also, I’m not convinced I’ll be able to eat spicy things either.


With all that said… I am feeling better and there’s loads and loads to be said for that blessing… It’s amazing how a dodgy stomach can completely rule your life…

    The bright side is losing weight but not being able to eat and being so limited when you can must be really miserable. I’m glad that you seem to be getting better, this is no way to spend you days. Blessings and health to you my friend.

Sorry I had to laugh when you mentioned you couldn’t pee then talked about drinking squirt…oh I am having a funny fit I think. Sorry. Hang in there girly!

    This is terrible, just terrible! I hope it gets better real soon. Sprite and 7-UP are favorites and they work wonders when I have stomach upsets or problems of any kind. I can’t imagine though what you’re going through. You are in my thoughts and prayers.
