Default Wish I could eat at night

I'm thankful that I don't have a feeding tube, I'm thankful that I have teeth, I'm thankful that I'm not eating locusts, I'm thankful that I have Tums.

That said, I'm just grumbly because I have to be REALLY careful what I eat ini the evening--like, 4-5 hours before bedtime. I can't eat ice cream after about 2:00. After 4:30 or 5, it's pretty much cereal (no milk), crackers, string cheese...once in a while a cookie, maybe a tootsie roll pop.

Sometimes I flat out CRAVE "real" food at suppertime--a plate of spaghetti, a grilled cheese sandwich, a bowl of sliced peaches, a salad. Arrgh. I hear people say "time for supper" at 8 p.m. and I'm just as startled as if they'd said "time to do my chicken imitation". Wow.

I also resent having to be careful what I eat for two days before I go anywhere. When I was working, I used to LOVE a Monday holiday, because on Sunday I could eat garlic bread, salad, vegetables, pizza...anything I wanted, and not have to worry about getting called in to work the next day.

I have a whole list of things I'm going to eat if I find out I'm going to die that night anyway.

I have gastroparesis and must be really careful how many hours I have before I lay down when I am eating. If I dont give it at least 4 hours then I am up half the night regurgitating what I had up to 12 hours ago. I have learned that we eat no later than 6pm. Anything consumed past six must be complete liquid.

Folks invite us out all the time, and they think we are crazy to want to eat at 5 with the early bird folks, but with my tummy...no way! am i going to eat a single crumb past 6.

Im sorry your tummy is bugging you.

I only snack at night. I don't like the feeling of a heavy stomach at night.

So sorry you are having tummy troubles. If I could send you my almost indestructable stomach I would because I barely use it. I normally can eat what I want when I want. It's just no appetite. I've been drinking skim milk so long that any milk heavier and it's stomach cramps. But no problems with cheese or rich ice cream.
