A surprise gone wrong
After being a sugar addict for all of my life, I have not eaten sugary foods for several months. I have been eating pretty clean foods, mostly fruit and veges, rice and oats and seafood.. not much oil...
I did not realise how sensitive I had become to junk food.
2 days ago a couple of friends gave me a surprise. They have been talking about it for months... How they were going to give me this wonderful surprise ..Big build up. Finally the big day came...
They blind folded me and took me somewhere. Asked me to hold out my hand. They put a fifty dollar note in it. When I opened my eyes I was standing in this enormous lolly shop with every kind of sweet and chocolate you could imagine in it! I was instructed to buy fifty dollars worth of lollies and eat them all myself.
I could have said "Sorry I don't eat or like lollies. Can I spend it on a frock instead??"
Instead I put their needs before mine. Not wanting to dissappoint them, I proceeded to get into the whole thing, acting like "a kid in a lolly shop".
With horrendous results.
Last night I felt like i was going to die. I was repeatedly woken up with pojectile vomiting. I could not touch my tummy or roll over or have a sip of water without instant horrid vomiting. I am only just able to keep down slow tentatve sips of water now (lunch time the following day).
I probably only ate $5 worth of lollies, but had no idea how sensitive I had become.
I wish I could have had enough self love to say what I needed to.
Any thoughts or similar experiences?

Okay. Your friends are weird. So you said, "I don't like eating lollies; I want to spend it on a frock," and they were insistant you spend it all on candy because they wanted to give you a wonderful surprise you'd enjoy?
No. I've never had that happen.

I used to hide the fact that I am a rawfoodist at work because I didn't want my colleagues to think I was crazy
My company always had lunch or dinner gatherings and I would usually just order similar food as other people. I would experience upset stomach afterwards and even feel depressed the next day.
So one day I said enough is enough, and told a few people around me that I only eat raw food. For gatherings, I would call the restaurant before hand to order a raw dish (just tell the chef what I eat and don't eat and ask him to get creative ).
I then realised that actually nobody really care what I eat. It was me who maked it a big deal
