Early Morning Tweets and Thoughts About Food

Early yesterday morning, I tweeted and put something on Instagram about my night

I seriously don’t know how to eat anymore. It sounds absurd but it is true.

I absolutely despise the feeling of food digesting and my stoma working. It makes my skin itch, feels like my ostomy is pulling, and it is generally so uncomfortable. I cannot focus! It also serves as a constant reminder of what I have been through with inflammatory bowel disease and that I am not “normal.”


It is very frustrating cause I can’t eat during the day if I want to be productive and eating at night causes issues with sleep and all of that. So what in the world am I supposed to do?


I know everything will be okay and get figured out. It is just one of those things that comes with the territory when you have Crohn’s Disease or Ulcerative Colitis.

    Me too! The thing I hate most about my ostomy is that I have not had a whole nights uninterrupted sleep since my surgery. Sucks! I just want one night of deep sleep.
