    I think my problem stems from not being able to cook and not enjoying eating. I have spent years filling my body with rubbish because the pains I had I thought were hunger pains and would eat the wrong things and make me worse. I find experimenting with new foods very difficult. I love fruit but am allergic to some fruit so find I have to be careful trying different kinds. Lactose doesn't agree with me so no dairy products. I have seen a dietician once (due a review on wednesday this week) and she told me what I should be eating, and when I look at the food chart, I'm hardly touching any of it!! Instead of 5 a day I'm lucky to be eating 5 a week! On top of that I'm without a cooker atm waiting for ours to be delivered in about two more weeks !! I was struggling through until friday last week when I went out for lunch with friends and had battered fish and fried bread.... for once I just wanted to pretend I was cured Needless to say I wasn't and ended up at A&E on saturday night with excruciating pains and diarrhoea. Not been work today and just ate plain crackers I know I'm an idiot but I hate being "abnormal". My husband is not supportive and thinks one time won't hurt. I tried to explain to him but nothing is sinking in. I have a consultant review in a week or so also and have been told I should ask for a thyroid blood test, DEXA scan, Vitamin B12 and Vitamin D check... is there anything else I should ask about? Oh, and also for the first time in my life my period was a month late....is this normal ???????? Many thanks everyone for your comments
