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…
