I was always told to eat anything green,wholemeal anything, and nuts... (anything to do with fibre) having been operated on 4 years ago and then diagnosed with diverticulitis. I had never heard of it before. But was told that it is very common, something like 98% of people over 50 have it. (i'm no where near 50!!)
I guess poor diet is what lead me to mine, gut ache for months and months, reflux, drinking milantor (spelling) by the litre. I thought it was just stress from work.
1 week in hospital, remove appendix as thats what they thought was the cause, tubes, etc etc NOT PLEASENT at all..
I ditched my stressful IT job, and decided to get healthy instead.
now all i want to do is have a sh1t kicker job, near a beach, few friends, a girl and be happy. oh and be healthy!!
edit: I still have a few vices that I shold not do!!! dam it...
