The number one thing that makes my band too tight.... STRESS
Instead of needing an unfill, can someone give me something for anxiety?! LOL
I think I've figured out that is what's wrong. It's been 10 days since my last fill and I've eaten 5 meals successfully. I really do not want to get an unfill, because I can eat...sometimes.
I normally LOVE my job. I love the people I work with. I love what I do. I love that my job makes a difference in sick people's lives. But lately, I have not loved some external factors. And I really think the stress of it is affecting my ability to eat. I did pretty good eating over the weekend. But then last night I started feeling somewhat anxious about this week's work and tried to eat dinner. No solid food dinner.
On the up side... what makes my band loose? ALCOHOL
3 of the 5 meals that I was able to eat successfully during the last week were after a few drinks. I don't know the real reason this happens, but my educated guess is that the stomach is a muscle, and maybe alcohol allows it to relax enough that I can eat.
I've read a lot about what makes other people's bands tight/loose. Any other suggestions on how to make me loosen up so I can eat?
While alcohol works, I can't drink at every meal just so I can eat...haha. I think there's a word for that...alcoholism.
