So... When i was first diagnosed last year my parents went hardcore on me regarding my lifestyle and diet. I became a vegan ( which is shocking because i am greek which means all i know is meat) and i slowed down majorily with socialising with mates( which meant if i was going out in the week my weekends were my rest bite and vice versa). When i made these changes my stats got better and my energy levels grew, itching more or less stopped and i lost weight ( i was never big but felt a bit more healthy etc).
Long story short i went back to work and my eating got lazy... No more smoothies or loads of veg but i kept to the vegan way. I went out or over worked myself... Recently everything has got worse again! Itching is at its worse.. My stats are terrible and my arse has definitely gotten bigger.
So i figured i need to go back to before and be strict again. But the hard part is i dont have the momentum to keep it up. Not to mention how annoyed i am with the fact that i am turning 29 and i have to deal with this crap. I should be living my life and not worrying that if i eat something overly sweet or meat that i am going to be up half the night itching. Does anyone else feel the same? That food and pbc are closely linked particularly with itching? I was thinking to create a food diary and monitor the level of itching to see the links... What is everyones thoughts on this? Do you see links??? Let me know. Thanks guys!
