I was walking across the parking lot at my sister’s baby shower talking to Little S (my niece) and N (her sister) thinking to myself, ‘I haven’t felt this good in awhile. ‘
I felt so good that I started playing on the playground with Little S and N. I was climbing on a wall with holes between two platforms when I thought, ‘Maybe this is a bad idea. ‘ so I got off.
Little S asked me why I got off the wall. I said my feet were too big. She laughed, “My feet are bigger than yours (she’s 9 but has bigger feet than me and is almost as tall as me). You mean your feet are fat.”
I started laughing. And as I did, I stepped back and fell off the platform landing on my back with a crack. I then fell forward and slammed my head on the pole.
It hurt, but I had to shake it off (Taylor Swift is now playing in my head) Didn’t want my nieces to know that it hurt.
Yesterday night I was achy, but I went to physical therapy and I am okay. Sore, and bruised but nothing more. The physical therapist thinks I just cracked my back like she does.
I would say that I am in a good stretch if it weren’t for the fact I had quite a big IBS flare up last Friday night. I couldn’t enjoy most of the yummy food at the shower Sunday. I ate some fruit, vegetables, pita chips and shared a cupcake with S (my fiance).
On Saturday, I ate only grains (which don’t bother me) and replenished with Powerade. I wouldn’t recommend grains for most people with IBS after a flare up, but I would recommend eating something bland that is safe and fairly easy to digest for them. Maybe soup or rice.
Today I was able to finally return to eating normal. Most of what I ate was FODMAP friendly.
