More importantly reduced standing up time when in pain.

I think someone commented on this forum 'no processed foods' . This really works to help reduce flare ups.



Are these bags reusable Hollyberry?

I can’t eat processed foods so I tend to batch cook my meals and freeze in individual portions (I live alone). This way I know exactly what goes in and saves me energy long run too and cuts down on food waste x

Hi. kiwi fairy, if I'm making oven baked fish, I'll cook carrots/celery in the bag, then I will reuse it immediately for other vegetables but I do tend to dispose of the bag after that. Having said that, I do reuse the stronger soup bags for leftover soups or sauces as they are definitely washable, but I do not cook food in these. Any simple food prep shortcuts help when you're energy is at a low because of bladder pain.

Thanks HollyBerry


My slow cooker is a godsend when batch cooking as I can chuck everything in and forget about it 😂 I’m actually considering buying a bigger one so I can cook more at once. It saves me a lot of energy especially since I have chronic fatigue on top of chronic pain! X

Easier at home these days due to wide range of lactose free milk products (Arla in particular), eating out can still be challenging. I know if I have had even a small amount of lactose as I get the same symptoms and side effect of painful bladder and it lasts up to 3 days. Generally though I have much better control of this pain.
I also now take these 'good gut bacteria' tablets and I think they help as well,
Working on the other issue now of the bladder lining inflammation- all related but different type of pain !
