Beware of carrot cake, it can put you in hospital!!

Hi everyone, hope you are all doing okay. You may or may not have noticed I havn't been on for a while as I ended up in hospital last week after being struck by a bout of pancreatitis so am now awaiting removal of my gall bladder which they think may have been the cause of my attack. Just before the attach came on I had eaten a slice of carrot cake thinking it may be the healthier option but alas no. Next time I will stick to the chocolate gateau!!.

Just what I needed two weeks after having Botox treatment for my bladder problems which has now left me having to use a catheter up to 5 times a day. Still, you know what they say, it neva rains but it pours!!. Glad to say I am on the mend for now though and hoping to keep it that way. Take care, love Angela xx

I'm allergic to carrots - they give me a full blown anaphlactic shock ..... perfect excuse for choccy gateaux until some spoil sport whispers "diabetes", okay so that will be a bottle of water for me then.

Seriously though pancreatitis is horrible - a good friend of mine died from it 13 years ago!

Hope you get everything sorted out really soon.
