After a few weeks of blessed relief from being chained to the toilet by the Big D, the last few days for no discernable reason, the symptoms have returned. Bloating, gas, and diarrhea again.
Here's the strange part: I'm almost glad it's back. It's a little more controllable than it was, and I am once again losing some weight. I lost about 40 lbs during the winter while I was so ill. When the symptoms finally improved, my appetite, which had been nonexistant, came back with a vengeance. I wanted to eat everything in sight, but I still was careful to avoid fatty and fried foods. I gained back about 8 lbs which made me unhappy. I kept wishing the lack of appetite would return--I've had eating disorder issues for much of my life, and the relief from the tyranny of food was the best part of being sick.
I'm a little worried about my emotional health, welcoming back the "D". Maybe I got used to it and it became a bit of a crutch, something to focus on instead of managing my eating. Anyone else have this issue and if so what happened?
