small talk six: things that make me sick

It's Saturday which means it's time for Small Talk Six on Head on over there to log in and post your six things that make you sick but you eat them anyhow. Mine are below. Happy Saturday!

There are many things I cannot eat because I suffer from IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrom) which no does not mean my bowels don't work, (I know TMI) but I just wanted u peeps to know that is not what it always means.

It means there are all kinds of foods that irritate my bowels and cause severe pain when I eat them. Sometimes I know what those things are and other times I have no clue and it's a process of elimination to figure it out, like when you get allergies to something.

Some things I eat because I want to and others it's because I have to because I love them so much and refuse to stop eating them even though I know I will feel sick later.

1.) Ice Cream - I can only have Dairyland and Breyers so far. Any other type and I'm at risk for feeling my tummy twist like a pretzel all night long while I moan and groan "Ohhhh I shouldn't have eaten that) and Corky says it serves me right.

2.) Hot Dogs. They don't agree with me at all. Mostly because I think they are a byproduct but sometimes even the real beef ones upset my tummy.

3.) Tim Horton's Ice Cap Supreme's. Mmmmmm my absolute fav but I always throw up after drinking them. I guess I can't handle the caffine or maybe it's the whip cream. I haven't figured it out yet lol. But I still drink one a week. Drink ... Puke... Repeat. I'm a glutton I know.

4.) Hamburger. Yep good ole beef. My mother used to put beef in everything when I was growing up. One night we'd have spaghetti, then shepherd's pie, then mac and cheese with beef in it, then tacos or nachos and finally meat loaf. I think I grew a sensitivity to ground beef because now I cannot even stand to cook it myself, Corky does it because I cannot handle the smell.

5.) Pop. Pepsi to be precise. I love pepsi but it upsets my tummy so badly I feel like one of those pop rock candies. You know the kind you put in your mouth that fizz and bubbly over making you look like you have rabies? Good times!

6.) Finally worse for me is cheese. Anything dairy really despite the fact I'm not lactose. I just shouldn't have dairy because of my IBS and my God cheese is my absolute favorite! I love it! Medium, Marble, Swiss, White you name it I love cheese.

It's funny how many things we like don't like us back eh?
Until next Saturday! Best wishes!

There is such a theme of dairy/ lactose intollerance, and to add your own ibs - not fun.

Enjoy the weekend!

Oh my. I hate to hear when someone else has IBS!
I suffered from this terribly as a child, and am one of the rare ones that has slowly been outgrowing it [usually it's the opposite, but usually it's not as intense as when I was a kid].
I completely know how you feel- the list of foods that are SO good but you KNOW you have to be at home within a half an hour or else... and you'd better have something to help you cope!

I've never heard of #3, but they sound yummy. Minus the puking after, of course.

I don't know anything about IBS but have you tried turkey burgers or turkey dogs? I prefer those to beef!

It's been a bummer week for ice cream. Good list.

I was just diagnosed with IBS and I'm in misery. My whole food world has been turned upside down and I don't like it one bit. If you have any tips please let me know.

I love me some Pepsi if it ever made me sick when drinking it, I wouldn't know what to do lol.

Just call me JP on May 31, 2009 at 1:07 AM said...

TY for all the comments. Lucy I take Celexa for depression which I was diagnosed when I was 25 and fortunately it counter acts the IBS so I don't suffer as much eating the things I shouldn't and helps to ease the pain.

@ Becca I've never tried Turkey anything other than at Thanksgiving, I should give it a try and see how my tummy likes it. TY for the tip.

Sorry to hear it's been bad for ice cream Harriet. And to Mama, I hear you on the Pepsi, it's one of my favs and I suffer for it but Lord have mercy I cannot go without having at least one a week lol.
