Yes, it is easier. The ability to eat somehow takes the pressure off the situation.
This morning I sat with my family at breakfast, and even though I actually just watched, I knew I would get my soup shortly after.
However, I probably still eat a little too much. When I went to bed last night, my stomach was still gurgling quite a bit, and at some point during the night, I had to get up urgently..
After the biofilm was taken care of for the night, I was able to sleep better.
