I went on my first long train journey (about 5 hours) since having my j-pouch yesterday. It envolved a lot of changes and I was a bit worried about possibly needing the bathroom whilst rushing to get a train. Thankfully, I don’t really need to use the bathroom much during the day where as when I had my bag, I’d need to empty every few hours. I got hungry halfway as I’m used to eating four times a day now but I forgot to bring any snacks so we had to buy food at one of the stations (which was not cheap). The journey was surprisingly pleasant though, despite being hungry, and I’ve learnt to bring food whenever I’m going on a long journey.
