Hey my lovlies,
I have been quiet unwell today so I am going to share how I was feeling.
Living with IBS is a daily struggle and it is very hard. When it flares, you don't feel like leaving the house. My stomach swells and is so painful. It was so swollen last night I couldn't stand up straight. If o tried to straighten it was pulling so much on my skin it was very painful. Plus the cramping from my bowel didn't help either.
Today I woke to crippling pain, which left me running to the bathroom all morning. People get embarrassed over this and try to hide it. We all function and use the bathroom, just because my bowel plays up don't mean I must be embarrassed. So today I had to stay home due to the pain and the need to be close to a bathroom. This has come on me really fast while out and about and I just run to the closest lol and I don't care what people think. I can't control my body functions and if I have to go I will go.
So from running in and out of the loo, I exhausted myself. IBS flares take a lot of me. I fell asleep about half one and slept until after seven this evening. Also when the tiredness strikes I would sleep anywhere.
When end I woke I felt achy inside as if my body was bruise, it hurt to move or stretch but my stomach had gone down. After an hour I finally managed to eat. I hadn't eaten all day over the pain.
IBS can really drain you and it's hard to make plans as you never know when it will flare up. I avoid spicy foods as they are the worst for IBS. Also apples and me don't go togeather, if I eat a apple I will spend the day/night vomiting.
My bowel is very weak and struggles to break down my food. A result of this is I must eat tho ha which are easy to digest. If I get very bad my Mam liquidises my food. She blends it up like baby food so my body isn't struggling to break it down.
I generally dont don't eat things that are hard to chew anyways as I have jaw problems and I just can't chew certain foods. Sometimes I will get drinks form the doctor to get the calories into me if I am struggling to eat.
Hopfully tomorrow will be a better day.
Still sore but I'm resting,
until next time.
thanks for reading,
lots of love.
