    I am so sorry that you didn't feel well during your trip. You deserved a break! the Seattle like weather, and those vicious strawberries didn,t help. Having to avoid pineapple in Hawaii takes away a lot of the fun of dining. The problem with chronic illness, is that when we go on vacation, it comes along . If I am ever able to fly again, and the way I have been feeling, I am starting to doubt that, I plan on wearing a diaper. On my last trip to Hawaii, no one was allowed out of their seat for almost 6 hours. we had to remain seated because the plane was rocking back forth due to mechanical problems. the pilot could not control this movement. People were vomiting in their seats and were not allowed to go to the rest rooms for any reason. My bladder was killing me. My children decided to read the safety information card. A previous passenger had drawn a picture of sharks eating the people from the ditched plane. The captain eventually got the plane under control, and we got to use the restrooms. The FAA grounded the airline for good, 4 months latter. A diaper would have relieved some of the stress. Now if we could only get our illnesses to take separate vacations!

    Melanie [img]biggrin.gif[/img] Stay away from the friggin' strawberries!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! And, have a great time. The check in clerks at the airports leaving Detroit weren't too helpful when I explained my need to be close to the bathroom but coming home I got a gem of a gal who put us in the exit row where we had much more room and I was sooooooooooooooooo much more comfortable (physically & mentally) Unless you have already gotten your seating assignments, get to the airport early and ask about the exit row seating....it's the only way I will travel like that again.

    You should have GREAT weather cuz we had rain and no sun for 5 days.....we used up all the bad stuff [img]wink.gif[/img]

    Have fun and do the best you can with your diet.....I let those stinkin stawberries get the best of me, don't fall for their fake smiles [img]eek.gif[/img] [img]eek.gif[/img] [img]eek.gif[/img]

    I'm so sorry you had a crappy time. [img]frown.gif[/img] I hope you're feeling better now. They girls are right - don't let this stop you from having fun traveling in the future.

    My new hubby and I are heading out on Saturday to Hawaii. I have to admit, after reading your post, I'm concerned I'll have a horrible time of it! [img]frown.gif[/img] Keep your fingers crossed for me, K? I'm fending off a UTI right now too, on top of everything.

    Hang in there! We missed you on the boards!
    Melanie J.

    Lesa is right --- don't give up planning future vacations.

    Two words, that sucks!

    I wish I could say more, but that pretty much covers it. Did hubbie have a good time, or is he really annoyed overall? (you know men, they might have had a good time, but be ticked because we didn't........then they gripe.......ugh!) I do hope that your flare is over, and stays gone!

    Welcome back, Lisa

    My Hawaiian vacation.....a BUST :O(

    What a nighmare.....the flight took a total of 15 hours, great when you are flaring! The resort we stayed at was so huge that you had to take a tram to get from one end to the other....great when you are having a flare. Every place we went I was looking for a potty to pee or a bathroom with good enough lighting to beable to cath.

    For 2 years I had been looking forward to this vacation and all the wrong things ended up happening. Pushed myself WAY too hard and those friggin' strawberries I ate every stinkin' morning sure didn't help things. Came home and was in bed for 2 days with a horrific fibro flare.

    Geez........to be 'normal' for just a week [img]frown.gif[/img]
