Now this is odd, but it makes sense because crohn's is an autoimmune disease and basically the food i'm eating isn't being accepted correctly. I do like to eat but after i eat i end up feeling weird or just really bad, sometimes even before i eat but i just eat anyway because i figure "i need to". Well i got tired of doing that and feeling like i was so when i wasn't actually really hungry as opposed to being just tired and eating for energy i just wouldn't eat and eventually i'd start feeling better throughout the day because it was giving my stomach time to heal. I'm not saying everyone should try this. My crohns is just pretty bad and i got tired of sitting on the toilet 20-30 minutes or more at a time 6 times a day and having basically no life outside of work. It's still bad but when i'm not filling my stomach with food after awhile i get a decent amount of energy but i still stay quite cautious because i still don't want to push anything too fast; for example, after not eating during the day a friend of mine wanted to get some food so i went and got a fish sandwich and stuff and no problems when i was there at the bar but once i got home about half hour later my heart started to race, probably because my stomach was trying so hard to digest the food right and i was on a higher dose of steriods otherwise i would've just crapped it out, but yeah my pulse and blood pressure went way up so i still gotta be careful. I've lost some weight since i've started doing this but i dont feel quite as bad as i used to and i think my stomach is starting to heal, so time will tell. Oh yeah i'm not starving myself for days and days haha usually a meal at 6-7 when i finally feel ok to eat and maybe something later but then i'll feel real lousy in the morning so i noticed if i go an entire day almost without food i'll feel way better the next day...but i still realize i need to eat.
