When you’re on vacation…

Hi,

I just wanted to share a recent experience… I usually pay attention to what I eat, I try to follow the Low FODMAP diet, but, went on vacation, it’s a little bit difficult, and I don’t want to feel frustrated…

I was on vacation last week, I spent my week in Florida.

So, I took off from Paris, and landed in Miami.

Beautiful weather, sunny, I felt so relaxed! The first thing I ate, was a delicious burger… not a gluten free one, a real big one and my digestion was good… I felt so happy!!!

So, I decided to not pay attention to what I eat, we drove to Orlando, and decided to go to Disney Parks, there is a new attraction at Animal Kingdom, called “the flight of passage” in Avatar Land… but we had to stand in line for about 3 hours… I felt like constipated in the morning, I didn’t feel as good as I was the days before… but we decided to do this attraction.

After two hours and a half standing in line… I felt the first signs of diarrhea… I took immediately Imodium… but symptoms became more intense… I knew that I had to wait for about 30 minutes again, I had cramps, pain, and the worst, was that I knew that there wasn’t any restrooms, but only outside, that I was with my friend, and that we already waited for about 2 hours and a half…

Hopefully, I managed to wait 30 more minutes, and as soon as the attraction ended, I ran to the restrooms, and had a bad diarrhea… I really didn’t feel good during this attraction, because I was hoping not to have a diarrhea during the ride while it was fabulous…

I spent the rest of the day with my anxiety, and the fear to have another one while waiting in lines…

This moment reminded me that I really have to be careful with what I eat, and how I feel, not only when working, but on vacation too… this could have been a disaster.
