  1. HI I WAS DIAGNOSED LESS THAN A YEAR AGO AND AM HAVING TROUBLE WITH WEIGHT. I WAS SICK FOR WHAT SEEMED LIKE A LONG TIME (IT WAS) AND KEPT SEEING DR AFTER DR. I HAD SYMPTOMS FOR YEARS AND DIDN'T REALIZE IT TILL I FINALLY VOICED MY TROUBLES TO MY GP. SHE STARTED THE BALL ROLLING FIRST. I WOULD EAT AND NOT 5 MINUTES OF BEING DONE I HAD TO GO POTTY RIGHT AWAY. THEN THE TESTING WAS GOING ON FOR ALL SORTS OF THINGS. I HAD JUST STARTED A NEW JOB AND WAS SO SICK FROM THE GET GO. I WOULD EAT AND PUKE TWO TO THREE TIMES A DAY. MY HUSBAND WAS WORRIED I WAS BECOMING BULIMIC. I LOST ABOUT 15-20 POUNDS THAT I COULD REALLY LOSE. (HAVE PLENTY MORE TO LOSE) FINALLY I GOT REFERRED TO A GASTROINTEROLOGIST. I WENT THRU THE PILLS THE BLOOD TESTS THE CHECKS THEN THE EGD, COLONOSCOPY, BARIUM ENEMA AND FINALLY DIAGNOSIS. SINCE I HAD GAINED ALL THE WEIGHT PRIOR TOO THEN LOST 15-20 THEN GAINED IT ALL BACK PLUS SOME AFTER GOING ON THE DIET NOW IT WON'T COME OFF. ANY SUGGESTIONS WOULD BE APPRECIATED. I MISS THE REGULAR FOODS BEING ABLE TO EAT OUT WITH THE FAMILY AND NOT HAVE TO HAVE THINGS SPECIALLY MADE OR BRING YOUR OWN. I AM SURE I AM STILL MAKING MISTAKES WITH MY DIET. PLEASE ANY HELP IS GREAT.
