Things to Have Checked Out

I’ve been having some uncomfortable digestive issues lately, which I won’t go into detail about here because I think we’ve had enough poop talk this week. But the first line of action my doctor suggested was to go on a B.R.A.T. diet to see if that eliminates the symptoms. I am also taking digestive enzymes.

Those of you without children who puke may not know this, but B.R.A.T. stands for Bananas, Rice, Apple sauce, and Toast. That’s a whole lot of NOTHIN’ to look forward to eating all day, so of course the first thing I wanted last night was chocolate chip cookies. I have never craved chocolate chip cookies SO MUCH as when someone tells me I can’t have them.

Having recently had two friends my own age diagnosed with Colon Cancer and Chrone’s Disease, I’m a little paranoid about what could possibly be wrong, especially since I have not changed any of my eating habits.

Nope. Still eating the same old crap.

But one thing did occur to me, and that is my symptoms first appeared after we spent a week camping and swimming in a lake. Is it possible a microscopic parasite leached its way into my blood stream and lodging in my intestines? Gross. But in light of Colon Cancer and Chrone’s Disease, I can only hope.

  1. that is very possible, and you should go straightaway to the doctor. i had a friend who was a nut nutritionist who kept having digestive problems and after six months of dieting finally figured out that she had foreign ameobas living inside her. six months! go!
