Why can't I eat soup anymore???
I used to be able to eat soup and now it makes me sick. Chicken soup used to always make me feel better when I was sick, now it causes my illness, it makes no sense. I had some stomach bug at Christmas '08 and it caused me to have the worst IBS flare I've ever had. After that, a lot of foods I used to be able to eat began triggering my IBS symptoms. I was a big fan of Campbell's Chicken Noodle soup, but now it is a trigger, could it be that there's MSG in the soup and that's why it is a trigger. Chinese food is also a trigger, so that is another reason I think that it is the MSG in the Campbell's soups. Also I can eat Swanson's Chicken broth without problems and they always have ads and labels that make it clear there's no MSG in their soups. I really miss being able to eat soup and the way it always was so soothing to my stomach. I have other foods that are my go to stomach soothing foods now, but I still miss soup. It really sucks that I had to give up so many foods and there are a lot of things I miss eating. I have found vegan foods to be particularly easy to eat and to substitute for those things I can't have anymore. I have found vegan waffles, french toast, pancakes, and cookies. I have also found soy and rice milk ice cream to take the place of regular ice cream that I can't have anymore. There's even a soy version of my favorite flavor, blue moon. I just wish I could find a way to get soup. Maybe I can use the broth that I can eat and add like noodles and stuff to it to get a sort of soup. Any ideas on what I can sub for soup that is similar to it would be appreciated. Sorry for the long whiny rant.

I had to have a lung biopsy, and I have cancer. A very rare form that doesn't have any standard treatment. There just isn't a lot of case history for this. It is epithelioid hemangio endothelioma. The cancer support group doesn't talk every day. I can understand why. I'm waiting for the oncologist to call back for an appointment, and will hear in the next few days. Who knew. Ha!
