  1. Thank you thank you thank you! Breathing deep and slowly rereading everything!
  2. So, I was diagnosed last Friday and met with a dietician today, who did a great job breaking the disease down for me. I'm slightly scared to eat anything for fear of more pain! I've been in severe pain for 9 months as I went through every test known to man to find out what was wrong. (Including gallbladder removal with no relieve) After my meeting today I left with a sense of what now? The problem lies with in my house! I'm a full time student so I don't buy or prepare the food in the house. My boyfriend's mother does and has stated she WILL NOT change how she eats or cooks! I was wondering if I just go vegan and eat nothing but fresh foods will this help my stomach? I'm malnourished, but very overweight. I eat only once a day and its a small portion! I am completely lost as to what I need to do or how I need to change. I just need guidance I guess! Any information, support or tips would be greatly appreciated! Thank you in advance!
