#7daysofIBD – Days 6 & 7

Day 6 – Spoiled Guts

day 6 2
My favorite souvenir!

It was my last day in Texas and I was sad because I had fun and it was a beautiful sunny day. Even though the weather was nice I still had not gone to the bathroom in 2 days! I was suffering! Completely bloated, nauseous, and the symptoms only got worst on the airplane. I looked like the guy from the fiber one commercial. As soon as the plane landed in DC, I was completely exhausted.Before getting on metro to go home, I decided I should stop and eat before I pass out and ate at the first place I saw. OF COURSE it was Mexican food lol

day 6 3

Didn’t see another food spot close by, so I just accepted it and ordered a taco salad with  cheese and beans, hoping it would make me “go” . . . . and it did not. By the time I got home my late night snack was a bowl of oatmeal and lemon water, I was trying to find anything to clear me out!

Day 7 – Cleansed 😉

I went to the bathroom and for the first time in 2 days I did not feel bloated,  it was a good feeling! Unfortunately, that good feeling did not last because work was very stressful. Purposely took a short walk during lunch to ease my stomach pains. Didn’t leave work until 6:30pm and with the horrible commute didn’t get home until 7:15pm which isn’t too bad, DC/NOVA traffic is horrible!! But I went home with work on my mind and barely any food in the fridge. My dinner was a sandwich with gluten free ham & turkey, cheddar cheese,  and a glass of wine. YES a glass of wine, I don’t care how much it’s going to hurt later, all I know is that I’m gonna sleep well tonight 😉

My current situation 🙂

I don’t know if these past 7 days have been interesting, exciting, or helped spread IBD awareness, but I was happy to participate and read other #7daysofIBD experiences.  I love my blog and will continue to spread IBD awareness is my own quirky way 🙂
