The Supermarket

Entry posted by GlutenWrangler · - 312 views

I go to the supermarket often, at least three times per week. Since I can't eat, I buy a lot of things to drink. Mainly I buy Sprite, Water, Gatorade, and Nantucket Nectar Lemonade. They are the
staples of my "diet". But it is definitely strange to be the guy who always goes through the checkout line with a cart loaded with drinks, and no food. A few employees have even asked why I buy so many beverages, but no food. When I tell them that I don't eat, they don't understand. "How can someone just not eat? I could NEVER do that!". But the fact is that you do what you have to do to survive, even if you're the odd man out. As hard as it is without food in my life, and as hard as it is to ignore all of the delicious goodies in those aisles, strangely, I think I'm getting used to it. And I'm not sure if that's a good thing or a bad thing.

What? Why don't you eat? How long have you been not eating? How long do you intend to not eat? :huh:

I don't eat because I can't eat. I've been on IV nutrition since June 27th. I probably won't be eating any time soon either, since no doctors can figure out how to treat my condition.

Yeah it really doesn't matter what kind of food I eat, gluten-free or not. I still get all the symptoms for some reason. It's a really weird situation, and doctors are clueless as to why it's been happening. So until they figure out the problem, I won't be eating anything. But I'm used to it by now, almost a year later.
