Andrea, I can't help but laugh out of commiseration! I do the same thing! I've been without any kind of pain for almost a year and this week I got a little cocky with my eating, almost FORGETTING I EVER HAD AS, and ate a little bit too much out of my comfort zone. Now I'm paying for it. Fasting until I feel better smile

Its totally depressing at first, but all I can do is ride this out. I have to remember that these days, the flares don't last more than 24-48 hours with fasting, and they never turn into huge ordeals like in the past. Smiling through the next couple days...

Hey Lauren,

Isn't that the truth!! Start feeling awesome again, almost like superwoman, and then I take a huge crash landing into a bowl of starchy cashew based vegan cheeze and can't crawl out of bed for two days!

I hope you fast right out of it!! It took a few days for me, I went and got a new bottle of iodine and was super careful for a week, but now I am flying around in my superwoman cape again, until I undoubtedly crash into something a little too starchy on Christmas!!

xoxo


I'm now a KICK AS (and Kick IBD) success story!! After going low starch Paleo to heal my gut, I can now eat nearly all starches, grains & foods without inflammation, flare-ups, or pain. I used a modified SCD diet approach (minus dairy! plus cacao ♥). Cheers to healing & thriving again! I blog at http://www.forestandfauna.com/about/

Haha aww! I love the superwoman analogy. Exactly how I feel smile it's a bittersweet reminder that diet is everything for me. And honestly I have to feel happy that I have these reminders so that I know I'm doing the right thing. Sucks, but AS sucks way worse!

My mini-flare is gone! woohoo! Fasting did the trick. By now I'd be on a huge path of destruction and agony in the past. Whew!
