I tested drinking beer again this weekend and I think it’s still a no go.
It causes bleeding somewhere and my stomach hurts.
I can still drink scotch, but it is becoming clearer that I should not drink beer at all.
I’m gonna really miss Stella and peroni. I won’t miss the pain.
I recently started on a new stomach med that I had to get internationally and it’s been a game changer. I felt like a drug dealer when a package from India appeared with 365 pills in it. I haven’t had a major flare up in awhile.
But when the blood is bright red and it’s a lot… that’s probably not a great sign. My pop is a doctor, I’m obviously not, but I’d be dumb to ignore the signs. I don’t “need” beer, but I do need scotch. I’m glad it doesn’t seem to tear me up like I get after a few beers.
It could have been the guacamole though. It did have tiny pieces of jalapeños hidden in it, but even that wouldn’t cause the blood. It would just make my stomach hurt and bubble, and me to hate life.
After 38 years and battling any name you can give irritable bowl syndrome and crohns, I know my body. Doesn’t mean I always do the best thing for it though.
I’m sure gonna miss a cold beer.
