Blinding Pain

Sometimes its not just about your diet. Stress, lack of sleep, alcohol, etc can mount up so badly that, eventually, your weak IBS body will succumb. I succumbed -- to a blinding episode.

Here's the formula:
- Add one evening of less than 4 hours of sleep
- Combine with 2.5 hours (there and back - 5.0 total) to the mountains
- Shake in 7 hours of heavy snowboarding
- Let simmer with .5 hours of dealing with boy problems
- Next day, stir in organizing a birthday party, upset lost friends and shorted bill
- Top off with 3 Grey Goose Vodkas and an evening of flirtation that ends at 3am
Throwing up for 3 hours straight.... my body expels everything possible out of every orfice in my system... then blacking out for short spurts.

It's so hard to regulate my body and keep a sane balance. I think I can do it all and suddenly I get a awake up call. I get physically depressed after those episodes...sometimes I cry a little. Between feeling vulnerable, weak and very beaten, I get very lost from reality. Everyday things, going to work, eating, socializing, becomes pointless when you have to associate pain with it.
And I only have IBS.
