    No popcorn for now or nuts of any kind, i ate small qtys and after i ate them it fell like they were stuck. I had such pain in my left boob area under the rib. We thought i was having a heart attack. Trust me i love popcorn and eat it plain. I dont use the pop secret kind anymore i bought one of those air poppers and a microwave popcorn bowl. Love the real thing. And no chemicals. I eat popcorn every day!!

    Dangers of Sugar Free - how much is too much?

    Get off all chemically enhanced products. If you must use a sweetener use pure sugar or honey. It has been proven over and over all the artificial sweeteners hide bad chemicals. All of them. Dont be fooled by the hype. They give other triggers you dont need. Just use real stuff. Organic.

    I screwed up but

    Never will I again, I got acute gastritis because I ran out of my stomach meds. Hadn't had any in 6 days I was hurting so freaking bad. Thought it was my gall bladder but it was mostly my left side not right. Had to go to the ER because I was hurting so bad. So nauseated vomiting foam mostly. Thought it was a heart attack to. Starting to feel better now. Keep taking your pills!!

    Used to hate and wouldn't allow myself to throw up ever. But since my surgery over a year ago I have almost became a pro. When something doesn't settle right in my pouch I lean over the sink get my toothbrush get it wet and just barely stick it on my tongue and up the foam comes. Doesn't hurt and doesn't scare me and wow I feel so much better. Thank goodness it doesn't happen a lot. But if my pouch starts to feel bad I gotta do it. I don't want to be in pain and feel bad.
