Yesterday afternoon I had my girl friends over and we had some lunch and ti was really really nice. One of them brought a cake. Its a chinese chocolate cake and had lots of fruit on the top of it and its covered in cream. I had a piece, ate the fruit and most of the actual cake. Then last night guess what happened....... my bowels couldn't cope and I've woken up every hour during the night to go the loo. Its settled again now, but I said to my husband last night, all I can do is eat foods that I know don't affect me like this. I know it might be boring to eat the same types of food but if its what I need to do then I'll have to do. If the situation arises again where a friend brings a cake or some food around and I'm not sure to eat it or not, then I'll have to do without. Just wish I didn't have irritable bowles aswell to deal with. That is a mega pain!!
