Just Say No To Bacon

Yes, you heard me right. Spurs, I'm sorry for speaking such foul language as this.

I was hoping that the stomach issues I've been having were temporary. I've always had a sensitive stomach but it seems like it has been gradually getting worse. Now with the more severe symptoms, I'm not sure I have much hope left.

Things like having 2 slices of bacon Sunday morning have ruined my hope. Or a small sliver of pound cake, forget it. I have a pretty high tolerance for pain and am usually able to control my upchuck reflex. Not so much anymore.

I have an appointment the 19th. Due to my travel schedule, I could not get anything sooner.

So I've taken the diet recommendations to limit the issues. And those times that I slip or forget, my body reminds me. It's like when my grandma was trying to quit smoking and whenever she wanted one or had one, she would snap herself with the rubberband on her wrist.

Let's just hope that alcohol doesn't have this same affect on me. B's coming out and there's gonna be some drinkin' goin' on!!

Glad to hear you've got that appointment. Pain is a wonderful curb on the diet isn't it. I soooo understand this. Hang in there, you can make it through.

Bacon? say it isnt so! Ugh.

Here's hoping that the appointment gets you some quick answers!

The appropriate title should have been "I need to have my stomach problems cured so I can enjoy bacon again, because without it life isn't worth living"

You're in my prayers!

Sorry to hear. Wondering if it is gall bladder? One of my colleagues just had hers out after fighting the good fight to manage it. Suffered a long while before taking the big step. Many food issues - I can only imagine. She is recovering well, and looking forward to returning to her spicy Texas roots!

You will soon find out if alcohol is one! If you run a fever and the pain is bad, you need to go to the ER. If the pain gets too bad, you'll go anyway. Trust me.

Until then... yeah, bland is in. I'm so sorry...

UGH - you need to get this fixed and fast...what's going to happen when you come visit us at the lake and Spurs makes his famous pound of bacon and eggs in the morning???
