BELCH. Excuse Me.

In an effort to stop having horrible fucking stomachaches, I have been consciously trying to avoid fatty foods for the last couple of weeks. Because that's what they tell you to do when you don't have a gallbladder. This week, I've done especially well diet-wise. But lo and behold, BAM, stomachache.

Which means that my stomachaches are not tied to my intake of fatty foods after all.

I celebrated this revelation by going to Burgerville and getting rosemary chicken sandwich and fries. I thought having the grilled chicken sandwich would offset (bwahahaha) the fries. Do you have Burgerville where you live? They are doing this fabulous/horrible thing where they print out the nutritional data of your meal ON YOUR RECEIPT. My GRILLED chicken sandwich and SMALL order of fries had 900 calories and 40 grams of fat. ARE YOU KIDDING ME?

But I digress... back to my stomachache. I am now at the 24-hour mark of my horrible fucking stomachache. Gassy, bloated, gross. I've had this same stomachache since I was, like, ten years old. The only diagnosis I've ever gotten is IBS (wherein IBS = have fun with your stomachache because we don't know why it hurts and can't fix it!) and gallbladder disease.

Anyway. That's what's doing with me tonight. I thought you'd want to know.

I am SO NOT amused by Burgerville's receipts...they suck!

another good site that may offer some direction is earthclinic.com

The suckitude.

I am of no help because my boy and I are plagued with the stomach badness as well, and I've tried a myriad of dietary changes, etc. to very little avail. And what does work is a pain in the ass because it means I should basically bring food with me all the time. (Like I do, anyway, because of my egg allery. Bitter who?)

SO I am just sorry you feel poorly & in lieu of any helpful advice, my sympathy. ox

I am especially amused with the DO YOU HAVE CELIAC ad that is now running on my blog. Touche, BlogHer. Touche.
