Last Saturday night my wife and I went to the home of some close friends for their annual
My UC had been calm all week so I decided to “eat a little” that night.
I did not drink alcohol BUT I did lose control by trying most of the food that was there. If it
looked good, I ate some of it. The problem was…… EVERYTHING looked (and tasted good).
Those little sandwiches……… yes, I ate them.
Deviled eggs with some spicy crap on top…….. ate those too.
Block of cream cheese swimming in merlot jelly…… yep, had some of that.
Fudge……. couldn’t say no to that.
Polled pork on a soft roll…….. of course.
(I don’t even like pork, but it looked good).
Those little cherry cheesecake pies in a cup…….. hmmm, yes
I won’t bore you with the rest of the list….. lets just say, most of what I ate was not on the SCD diet.
So how did I feel on Sunday morning when I made my 6 a.m. visit to the porcelain throne….
………LOUSY! I had the worst UC flare that I’ve had in 3 months. Yesterday (Monday) my proctits
was still flaring away with more than a little bit of pain. Today its finally starting to calm down a bit.
If you have UC and are tempted to binge like a normal person during the Holidays….. My advice is:
DON’T DO IT!! ………. IT AIN’T WORTH IT. )>:
