Just a day

It’s a day like any other I guess. The only real difference is I’m laying here crying and afraid.

I don’t know what I’m going to do about this pancreatitis thing.

I’m terrified.

I literally can’t eat without being in pain and sometimes being in pain so bad that I just can’t take it.

I managed to get down a can of vegetarian vegetable soup and a banana last night after not eating all day.

So far today, (it’s noon), I’ve eaten two bananas.

I am completely afraid to eat. It’s not even like when my eating disorder is active, although I’m also terrified ED is gonna get in my way here as well.

I don’t know.

I just feel paralyzed with fear.

The pain is so much when it comes.

My mood is absolute crap. I am just playing out my future here and it doesn’t look so great.

I’m trying to be mindful and take it one moment at a time, but it’s really hard to do that.


I called my psych and begged for an earlier appointment because my next one isn’t until the end of January. I have to wait to hear back.

It’s just a mess. At least my dietician is getting me in Wednesday.

This sucks.

  1. I know the misery and suffering of the body on a daily basis and into the night. It’s definitely an affliction with no mercy and I would call it persecution. I also know that holding to the name of Jesus will be worth it all, regardless of what I’m put through now. I feel for you, you are not alone, and you are loved.

  2. I’m sorry. Sick is bad enough without it being triggering. Does the BRAT diet work for pancreatitis? Bananas, rice, applesauce, toast. I followed it when I was dealing with a kidney infection that wouldn’t quit. It’s protein light – I added scrambled eggs periodically. Doctors, I find, don’t attend to the complications that stomach and digestive issues can bring to our eating disorders and recovery work.

    1. I have been living on bananas! I am not sure about the rest of the BRAT diet, but it probably would. I am terrified of eggs at this point due to the fat content. I ate a tiny bit of chicken tonight w broccoli and a little mashed potatoes, but immediately had to go to the bathroom. (Not to throw up). So… I am just struggling. Staying hydrated is an issue too (partly because of aforementioned issues). I am just really frustrated. Thanks for the kind words. I meet with my ED specialist dietician Wednesday so hopefully she can help.
