I supposed I shouldn't be surprised really; arthur has made an appearance at most events for the last 5 and a half years, so why should Christmas be any different? My stomach has been furious because I've been deviating from my usual, bland diet of white carbs, white carbs and white carbs. Every Christmas event that's involved food has resulted in a night of no sleep, severe pain and vomiting. Of course, Christmas is not just the 25th and all the combination of work lunches, family parties and social gatherings has pushed my poor digestive system to breaking point. It's been boiled rice and ginger biscuits for me today....and probably for the foreseeable future.
Usually, I would accept that this is part of the ebb and flow of living with chronic illness but given that it's impacting on every part of my life, I feel it is time to find a new plan.
