Well this has been a dud of a week for me. My Crohn’s is as bad as it gets – well pretty much.
I don’t know what I did to make me feel so terrible. Perhaps preparing for our big family get together and my brother staying over almost two weeks ago did me in even more than I thought? I mean, I know all that cleaning and prep work wore me out, but I thought I was mainly just exhausted … perhaps I pushed myself into an even worse Crohn’s flare.
Actually maybe some of the food I ate at our family BBQ and the days afterward’s as we tried to finish up the extra food is one of the culprits. Particularly the corn on the cob!
I really love Corn on the Cob but it doesn’t like me at all. I don’t know why, but when I eat it it really aggravates my Crohn’s. So … if I really want some I tend to only have one a year. That’s right … just one! Usually in August when the fresh sweet corn comes into season. However, I think I’ve had about five pieces of corn on the cob this year – most of that being two weeks ago … so maybe that’s why I’m feeling so crappy. Odd that it didn’t hit right away though.
Anyway … since I’ve been in so much pain this week and just feeling tired and out of sorts I’ve just been lying on the couch working on my sites behind the scenes, playing Mahjonng on the computer and reading lots of books. Luckily I had about five novels lying around that I hadn’t read yet. I’ve gone through three of them this week alone!
I am feeling a little better today. Possibly because I fell asleep on the couch last night … then woke up around 7 am, stayed up for two hours or so and moved upstairs to the bedroom where I somehow slept right through my alarm until close to 2:30 pm! My body must have needed that sleep!
Hopefully I’ll continue to feel better as the week progresses. I hope I do! My husbands on holidays this week and next and so far we really haven’t done much because I haven’t been feeling well. Grrr.
Hope you’re having a better week than me!
