I hope ya"ll are doing well. In Oregon we have had a string of cold dry icey weather so it has been hard to be modivated to do exercise or eat right. I have been having crazy cravings for sugar and chocolate. anyway, so my IBS has been doing better. i now take my fiber supliment before bed and then eat veggies during the day. i hope it keeps working because its nice to be able to not having the cramping and pain.

I have had a sinus headache all day. blah! Fortunately, no IBS issues today. I ate a healthy dinner and that certainly helped. Went shopping on the beach today. Pretty nice day.

Janette - hope that you don't get the boy too much during the school holidays.It is difficult for you that your b/f is out of the country too. I am glad that you are feeling well.

Glad to hear you are better Linda!

Darlene, glad to hear from you again and glad things went well with the surgery too.

The boy didn't seem that sick to me, a little sniffle on and off? I think it was more he just didn't want to go to school again? But then he also supposedly didn't have much of an appetite before coming here and didn't want to eat when he got here either even thought it was lunch time. Then several hrs later he was hungry but didn't want a sandwich or anything healthy, he just wanted junk food of course. So I made him at least eat some lunch meat alone with crackers and cheese before he could have the cookies. His mom said she plans on trying to make him go to school tomorrow no matter what, but we will see? I got a feeling he is going to end up back with me tomorrow? And the bf called right after the kid went back home and now he has to stay in Canada for at least another week too. And the kid is off school Monday and only goes to school half day the rest of next week, so I could end up with him part or all of it too? And the week after that he is off from school the whole week too.

Well take care everyone.

Haven't been here for a while. I have been doing better for a while, but then sometimes everything just blows up. Apparently I need to stay away from citrus to keep D away, though part of that problem could have been stress since I just had cataract surgery and I was really nervous about that. Actually I was scared to death.

I made sauerbraten the other night, which didn't cause D, but I think the onions it called for triggered a bloating problem. It really tastes so good, though.

The surgery came out well. I can see really well now except for a blind spot where I had a hole in the macula last year. The treatment for that was the cause of the cataract growing much faster. But I can now see better than I have since about 6th grade other than that blind spot. At least in the one eye.

Hope everyone is doing well today.

Darlene

Thanks Linda! Unfortunately the truck is still acting up on and off today not wanting to get out of park with out a lot of trial and error. So I emailed the bf and I think I will just leave it sit for a bit. Just frustrated with it and don't trust that it won't leave me stranded again.

I am still keeping up the walking with our 2 yr old dog.

IBS is still doing fine too.

Had a good couple of days. No IBS issues. Keeping up with water and exercise. Tomorrow is Veteran's Day. Since my hubby is a vet, will be going to some activities.

Janette - wow, I am so sorry about your car trouble. I hope it is no longer causing you problems. Happy to hear how you are keeping up with walking with your pup. It is great exercise for both of you.

Our truck broke down on me today leaving me stuck in a near by city for several hrs trying to get it fixed so I could get home. Ended up having to replace the battery, and finally made it home but it is still acting up. So I hope it works it's self out so I don't end up having to have it put into a repair shop. I had already walked the dog for an hour walking more than 5 K. Then got stuck for several hrs with the truck, so I keep pacing around while I waited for AAA Auto to come help me. So got lots of walking in today. Now I a m tired and I have a head ache too.

Friday was a good day. I was a bit upset because I walked so far and well over 10,000 steps with my fitbit. Well, the fitbit died as I tried to sync it. So I wasn't able to add it all to my fitbit tracker and to Spark People. Ugh!

LindaB - I can only imagine just how HAPPY you must be. It is wonderful that the mother in law is doing better and moving out of your house. emoticon You deserve some time in your home with some peace.

Rachel, Linda, and Janette thank you for all the well wishes. Today is a much better day and the stimulator test seems to be going really well. Most importantly, it seems to be slowing my
IBSD symptoms as well. I started to cramp and then just as quickly it stopped. I have never had that happen. That alone will make this worth it!

Janette while it hurts to loose our fur babies ( my lab is 10 and bad hip dysplasia), I know you are equally having fun with your new puppy. They are so full of energy and I imagine that will be helpful for your walks too.

Rachel it sounds like you have your plate full. I hope you are able to find 30 minutes to yourself to help in relaxing. Family members can stress us more than we realize, which in turn causes our IBS symptoms.

Linda I am glad your migraine is better. I get cluster migraines for several consecutive days and they are no picnic. I have noticed mine are triggered by the storm fronts, and you living in FL I can imagine that might be a part of them.

Well ladies I am so excited beyond words. After 14 months of my Mother in Law living with us while she underwent her Cancer treatments and surgeries, she is being moved home this week! I actually insisted on it since she was well and able. If I could I would be helping with the packing and moving, as it is, I will just do a mental happy dance!!

I have had a good day. Felt well I walked for over 2.5 miles and went to Curves also. Part of my walk today was outdoors.

LindaB - I am so sorry that you have had such a rough time. I certainly hope that you are feeling better soon. I hope that you improve and can have the second surgery. Thanks for the compliment on my profile pic.

Janette - happy to hear that you were able to enjoy walking with the puppy.

Rachel - happy to see you.

Hello ALL.
sorry its been so long. so the training the new lady at work is going well. i am getting less calls from her and didn't have to go in the help her so that is good. i ended up increasing my fiber to help with the IBS as all this stress at work has gotten it bad again. to make things worse my parents and aunt are back. my work schedule is still not settled into a set time so i haven't been able to help out with my aunt and her numerous appts and such. i am hoping that things will start to settle down before thanksgiving. hope you all are hanging in there. happy thursday!

jeanette! i am so sorry to hear about your doggieeeeee!!! that makes me so sad to hear. my heart goes out to you as my dog is 13 and slowing down.

linda. that sounds just horrible. i hope you have a speedy recovery and that it goes better over new years.
Rachel

Hi Everyone! Sorry I have been offline for a while. I had Phase 1 of the Interstim done to see if it will correct my bladder and IBSD. The surgery went really bad. The twilight anesthesia never took effect, and the numbing agent did not work in my lower back so I felt the entire procedure. It was just the most painful thing I have ever gone through, but they couldn't knock me out because they needed me to answer questions when they touched a nerve. It's a wonder I didn't scare all the patients away. After it was done the doctor apologized and had a nurse give me dilauded twice. I told them if phase two was like this I would not be back. They said I would be put to sleep for that. I had MRI done on knee and I have a tear on the inner side so surgery is scheduled for that New Years Eve. Praying. The new year will be kinder.

Janette I am so sorry to hear about your fur baby. I know how hard that is to do and how lost you feel afterwards. I thoughts are with you.

Linda your picture looks great! Hope your migraine is better.

It is time to rest after the doctor calls to check on me. Take care and have a good day.

Linda B.

I had to put my 7 yr old dog to sleep yesterday due to some strange freak accident. Not even sure exactly what happened to her. Either she hurt herself jumping off out bed or rough housing with our bigger pup. One min she was fine, the next hurt, but I couldn't tell what, where, how or how bad, then the next she was crippled and I couldn't fix her. I am so sad about it. It is like a bad nightmare that I can't not wake from. But I am doing okay. I took the pup for a really long walk this morning over 3.5 miles. All my best to you always. Janette

My headache now is close to a migraine. So I think I will not stay up too late tonight.

Jeanette - the meeting you went to sounds very interesting. Too bad that it is also quite an expense. If you are able to donate to their causes that is a great thing.

I hope everyone has a wonderful Tuesday.

Thanks Linda! Today I went and checked out the Woman's Club of Escondido, Ca today. I got a really nice free lunch and had a lot of fun chatting with a bunch of ladies that I had never met before. I got an invite from a woman I met on an Escondido group on Facebook. It was really nice and would be fun to join if I had the money for their yearly and monthly fees, but I really don't. But they do a lot of really good charitable stuff in my city. So I am going to try to find a way to still donate to some of their things. Like they collect stuff for veteran's, the humane society, nursing homes and lots more. So I will try to keep up with knowing what they are collecting for what and donate what I can. Like the veteran's like to do art craft stuff with used postage stamps and I have some my mom collected that I could give them. They are also gathering stuff for a rummage sale right now too, so I can donate to that too. So I will keep them in mind, but I need to work on finding a job so money is coming in before I agree to let more money go out. All my best to you all always. Janette

I got in plenty of exercise today. Feeling well although have a bit of a headache today. No IBS problems today.

Janette - glad that you had some time with just your b/f when the boy was at his mom's house.

I like your new profile pic! Well he was out of the house for about an hour with the candy on Halloween night, but came back in with almost all of it afterwards. Just no one around by the time he got home. He talked about giving it away at Sat's football game but didn't even take it with him. He has been munching on it and other junk food all weekend. The boy is with his mom this weekend but will be back tomorrow night until Wed's Evening. I am sure they will pig out some more on it. Maybe the bf will take some to work too? He had done that before too.

I am doing good and staying out of the candy and junk food. I had a big salad and lots of other fruits and veggies to try to fill me up, plus water too.

I had a good day.Getting a fiber supplement in my diet is really helping me. I normally have D but have been alternating between D & C for several weeks. I feel a lot better. I hope that it stays the same way. I was bloated and gassy for quite a long time. Feeling miserable.

Janette - it is good that your b/f will be getting out of the house. Otherwise, it is so tempting. But the boy will eat some.

Congrats Linda! All my best to you all always.

We had a pretty quiet Halloween. The boy was with his mom, and the bf had to work later than he planned. And the kids came out early before the sun was even down this yr. We had some people come down our steep drive way from the cul de sac above our house and the house to the south of us that are up on a hill from our house. All of the other people were staying down at the bottom of the hill that we live on and not coming up the hill. The bf didn't get home until about an hour after the first group came to our door. So by the time he got home and took the big bowl of candy down to the curb to pass it out at the bottom of the hill from our home, there was hardly any one there. So we have a ton of candy left as he always buys too much. So I think he is going to take it to the kid's football game this afternoon and try to pass it out there? Or else he will take most of it into his work and leave it there for the other employees to munch on. I am sure he will leave a little for him and his kid to eat for a few nights at least too.

I hope that you all had a healthy Halloween. It was a beautiful day here. Earlier in the day, I was measured at Curves and had lost 7 inches and a pound. I lose weight so slow but am happy that I am losing inches from my exercises. I have been feeling well.

Have a great Saturday everyone.

Yes, so sorry to hear it. But stress is my trigger to ibs-d, and I treat it with oatmeal, toast, rice and bananas on the food side, and yoga type stretches and mediation to deal with the stress side. Deep breathing, relaxing and calming sitting and mediating, and nice and slow stretches to get the knots out of your muscles. All my best to you always. It has worked wonders for me, I haven't had ibs-d for a long time now and yet my life is the busiest and most stressed I can remember in yrs.

So sorry to hear about your symptoms. I was having much the same problem a few weeks ago and someone from SP suggested that I incorporate rice and bananas into my diet. It worked for me.
You could also do some deep breathing and/or meditation to reduce the stress.
Whatever you do, I wish you well and good health.

My stress level has been very very high. i am training a new girl at work. i've been pooping tons and feeling cramping and yucky. i haven't been eating well or good foods. i know i will be paying for that for a while but life is getting crazy even for my home life. my husband and i have been very involved in small groups. during this time any suggestions to limit the cramping intestines? i have been keeping a spare pair of panties in my purse if i have an accident (its happened once so far).

Linda B, I am so sorry for your loss.

Hope everyone is doing fine. Sorry, I've been missing in action; just been a little down over the past few weeks because my symptoms weren't getting any better. I finally demanded that my doctor do a sonogram because something just wasn't feeling right. My doctor kept telling me my symptoms were stress related, blah, blah, blah...but who knows your body better than you. So we do the sonogram and low and behold I have two enlarged fibroids.

I have to meet with an ob/gyn in a few weeks to discuss treatment. But, I must say since I've found out what's really going on, I feel so much better. That's where my stress was coming from the not knowing.

I've slowed my physical activity down to just walking a couple of miles a day, but I'm still sticking to my good eating habits.

Take care everyone. Will check in with you guys soon.

Keep moving!!

Well stress has finally set in I guess. Had to take immodium to stop D so we could take a plant to funeral home for tomorrow's viewing. Ran into another Aunt and she lost it, in turn so did I. Next two days are going to be rough. My Dad has broke down several times and that will be my undoing.

I don't want to bring everyone down so I will just say have a beautiful and happy Sunday and Monday. Take care everyone! P.s. I did drop 5 pounds so that made me feel a bit happier.
