Can't Eat Popcorn Anymore!

Wow this is interesting!!! Birdman loves popcorn and eats it often, he says he has no problem, we even take it when we go for his visits at Duke. Of all of his problems thankfully this isn't one of them because he really loves popcorn

Popcorn is my secret sin. I'll have it up to 3x/week sometimes. I make a huge bowl, use a whole stick of real butter on it, sprinkle with salt, give my kids each a small bowl and finish off the rest myself.

 

There! I said it! :(

 

Yes, I know. I'm surprised I'm not dead yet too if not from the butter and salt alone.

 

*sigh*

 

I feel cleansed. Confession is good for the soul.

Take care,

My GI doctor also told me two years ago not to eat popcorn and I love it. He wanted me to give it up because of the hulls. I had a colonoscopy done and the hulls were still there even after drinking all of that "stuff". I have to have another colonoscopy in June. He will probably be upset with me so I'm really trying to give it up :) . Connie

Popcorn, nuts, grainy breads, & saliva if I've had anything dairy. Those are the things that I seem to have a hard time getting down. I could eat some cereal for breakfast & 2 hours later, I'm eating something else & drinking in an attempt to get it down!

 

It is indeed frustrating.

Hi all,

 

Does anyone else find that time of day matters? I can hardly get anything down that is not liquid in the morning and then as the day progresses, swallowing seems to get progressively easier.

 

Warm wishes,

Heidi

I also don't seem to have as much "umph" in my swallowing in the morning as I do later in the day. Also, I can't "swallow on demand" if you know what I mean. Taking pills has always been a bit of a problem. Over the years, my dentist has made sure that all my appts. are in the later afternoon so that my throat has loosened and therefore swallowing when he tells me to is a bit easier...but he's always told me that lots of people are like this so I'm not connecting it to the connective tissue disease.

I would be so sad to lose my ability to eat popcorn. Like another confessor here, I soak my popcorn in butter and salt and munch away... :P

Does anyone fix popcorn for lunch? I used to do that during the day. I didn't have to share and I could clean up the mess before anyone got home from school or work. Of course, I still make it the old fashioned way. In a kettle on the stove. Lots of butter and salt also. I keep antibotics on hand in case I have a problem. Or I just call my doctor and say I am having severe pain and need help. His response is. Did you eat corn or popcorn or peanuts this time. Usually, it is the popcorn. It is an addiction like smoking I guess. Sometimes, I just can't go without it. All other substitutions don't work for long. I end up maybe going one day then I pop my popcorn. Just thinking about it makes me want to go pop some. This topic needs to be off the screen. It is bothersome. Ha! Sheryl


Strength and Warmth,

Morning could have some to do with it, I always thought ti was because cereal is grainey.....lol. But then I still have the peanuts & what not. Late yesterday I had popcorn & didn't seem to have the problem...so maybe morning is worse?
