Bad medicine is what I need
Today i’ll let these pictures explain how I feel.
Mike and I did manage a 47 minute bike ride which took my mind off of it. I went to Super Target this morning and it was awful. No I didn’t relieve myself in public and that’s why it was awful.
So what did I do different? Why is it much worse right now?
Gas and bloating. Simethicone-based products (Gas-X, Maalox), charcoal, and alpha-galactosidase (Beano) aren’t very effective, and no prescription drugs have proven useful. The best approach is to avoid the foods that trigger gas and bloating. Common offenders include beans, pretzels, bananas, dairy products, carbonated beverages, and raw fruits and vegetables (particularly cabbage, cauliflower, and broccoli). Fructose (a common sweetener) and sorbitol (an artificial sweetener) can also cause bloating and diarrhea.
I had a can of no sodium black beans and it’s been around for a long time. I decided to put a few on my salads this week. I also took a bite of a banana before giving it to Boomer. She likes banana’s 😀
So for my husband’s sake i’m going back on the Nortriptyline. He said he could tell a difference in me when I was on it. I wasn’t as cranky and didn’t complain of my stomach hurting.
- stomach feels better
- they make me sleep until 7a and I like getting up by 545a
- pretty sure they don’t help my weightloss
- i hate taking pills
There ain’t no doctor that can cure my disease……….Bon Jovi rocks! Once this subsides i’ll be back to normal….as normal as I am.
