London, June 25 (ANI): A Brit woman has survived three years without eating a single morsel of food.rudy Sharp, 43, is suffering from digestive problems and the only thing she can consume is three cups of tea every day.

Sharp, a housewife manages to live on a liquid food being fed directly into her system at meal times.It's not easy watching everyone else eat, while I have to get by on tea. I'd love to sit down to a really romantic three-course meal with all the trimmings and lots of wine," the Telegraph quoted Sharp as saying.

She added: "But over the years I've learnt to make do with a simple cuppa. No one knows tea better than I do!"

Sharp, who is a resident of Milton Keynes, Bucks, first developed intestinal difficulties when her appendix burst as a teenager.

The problem continued all through her adulthood and reached a critical point in 2006 when doctors suggested to go under colectomy - the removal of her large and small bowel.

Ever since she has been diagnosed, she has been forced to eat liquid meals fed via a tube inserted into her neck.

Sharp, who lives with her husband Barry, 44, is also limited to drinking three cups of tea per day. A fourth cup may overload and damage her system.

And now, she is at the top of a transplant waiting list at Churchill Hospital in Oxford.

"Every day I count my blessings that I am still here. But to be honest, a life without eating food is not much of a life. I dream that one day soon a donor will be found and I will be able to lead a normal life at last," she said. (ANI)
