Janette, glad you are feeling better.

Linda, glad your symptoms have improved.

Well, I had planned on working out today but my stomach is telling me otherwise. I really did not eat much at the party yesterday, but today I had one of my what I call attacks which I'm sure you all know what I'm talking about. It is getting better, but I'm kind of nervous about eating lunch. I think it will be soup for lunch.

I am feeling better. No D and so glad. I got in some exercise and shopping today. We finally have cooler weather. It felt good to wear a sweatshirt. I am continuing to drink water in hopes that it will continue to keep me feeling well.

Carol - I hope that none of the food triggered any discomfort for you. I am still praying for your son and family. What a tough time for your family.

Janette - it is so good that you are able to rest this weekend. You had a busy week.

Thanks ladies! All my best to you always.

I was feeling better and better each day. But still felt a little off all week. But I just pushed through it and worked every day for at least a little bit, so that we could make our deadlines.

I have the weekend off from work, and I will probably just do a lot of resting. I am feeling a lot better today. We had a lot of rain last night and it is cooler today. But just putting on warmer clothes and blanket, not turning on the heat just yet as it is not that cold yet here.

My boss will still be here part of next week as we still have some work to do for our deadlines, but I have done might part of it. Now it is up to the boss to complete his part. Then I will have to call clients up to see which ones want to come in to take care of it or just want it mailed to them to take care of.

But at least the worse part for me is over for another month. And next month will be easier as we won't have the tax extensions to deal with, or quarterly payroll reports for the Federal and State to deal with. And I have already started and finished some of my bookkeeping for next month too, so I got a jump on it.

I just plan on resting up this weekend so I will be ready to start it all over again.

Take care

Linda, hope you are doing better today with no more attacks. I have the opposite which is quite miserable. I am so glad today it is doing better. Since my dog died and my son got sick my stomach has been a mess. Today it is so so. I have their shower to attend today for the baby. Hoping that the food will be ok for me afterwards.

I had an attack of D yesterday. I was fortunate that I had gotten through my exercise class when I had the flare up. I have been careful with my diet today so I am doing much better. I took a really long walk and also working on laundry this evening.

Carol - I am glad that there was no cancer found in the bone marrow. I know that there are always so many advancements in research that he will have success.

Janette - I hope that you are doing much better.

Janette, sorry to hear you are not feeling well. Hope you will be feeling better soon.

Thank you for all the prayers for my son. Right now the status is that the Tumor Board will be reviewing his case since they are having difficulty staging it. I take that as a positive sign since if it was more advanced they wouldn't have difficulty staging it. The very good news is the bone marrow is cancer free.

Thanks! I have been busy with work and under the weather at the same time. But we have deadlines coming up so working when I need to be there and resting when I don't. Boss will be back in town tomorrow, so this is going to be a busy week for me even though I am fighting off some sort of cold, or infection, or allergies, or all of above.

Take care and have a great week!

Carol - keeping your son in my prayers.

Janette - you certainly are keeping busy.

My computer crashed on Saturday. It was my hard drive. My son in law ordered a part for it. If it can't be fixed I will have to buy a new one. I use hubby's tablet which I don't like. Anyway I am doing okay.

I worked Monday and tracked my exercise and walking. Then worked from home until Friday, so wasn't tracking Tuesday - Thursday. Friday I went into work and ran errands for work, so I got in over 3.5 miles and over 10K steps, exercised with walking and such for 100 mins. Today I was back to doing bookkeeping at home, so I didn't really track again. Tomorrow we are supposed to go to a party, so I will track my steps and such tomorrow. And Monday I will be back at work. My boss is coming back from Chicago sometime next week, so it could end up being a busy week for me. We have the deadline of getting all the exts done by the 15th, plus quarterly payroll reports, and also getting the P & L's for the bookkeeping clients done. Not sure if I am going to be the one running to all the clients up the coast and in Escondido, or the boss will do it. I am thinking he is going to be busy with the taxes, so it will probably be me. If so then I will get a lot of walking and steps in with that.

Have a great Sunday!

All my best to you all always. I haven't had any IBS issues, but I have been having heartburn on and off again. I think the first was from trying sheep and goat yogurt. And then the next time I think it was from the red and green pepper that was in a pre-packaged meal that the bf cooked. Hopefully I won't have it again tonight.

I am sorry about your IBS issues ladies. It is so tough. Right now I am okay. I did have a flare up last night after eating at a restaurant with family. Ugh! I finally got it under control after a few hours. I feel better today. I did exercise today but not as much as I would like. But drinking water seems to help me as well.

Hubby has his PFT test, lungs, so a bit stressed about that.

I pray that all goes well for your son tomorrow and then through chemo. Is he getting a stent, like to keep a vein or artery open, or a port? I had a port when I went through chemo and for several years after until it couldn't be cleared anymore. It sure makes it easier when they do the chemo. How old is your son?

My IBS has been okay this past week except when I got nervous about it and ended up taking an Immodium. That just makes it harder for me to deal with, but had too when I was at the gym.

My IBS was not good yesterday, but thank goodness there is an improvement today. Usually on Saturdays I visit my dog. It was so strange not being able to visit anymore. I sure miss him! Tomorrow my son gets his stent put in. I feel so bad for him with all he has to have done to prepare for his oncologist appointment and then chemo. at such a young age. Prayers appreciated.

My IBS has been up and down lately, I think from stress mostly, but some from the food. I had a couple doctor appointments last week, so that was a little stressful. All but 2 of my blood tests and my biopsy came out okay. One blood test was better than it had been the last several times. The other one the doctor thinks is from gall stones that come and go. Only I didn't have any pain then. The other was for my eye that now has a shadowy spot in it. I need to have the laser to get rid of some scar tissue there.

Other than that I have had the problem with salads, but my doctor thinks it is because of the dressing and not the greens. I don't really agree with that, but I will try again. She said not to get any of the pre-mix salads, but to just get the greens and make my own. I only tried the pre-mix because it cost less. They were having a sale on it.

My msgs got turned off in here, but I turned them back on.

Country Carol, so sorry to hear about your dog and your son! Prayers to you and your loved ones. So sorry for you loss!

I had tried sheep milk yogurt and goats milk yogurt on the suggestion of the GI doctor that I just went to recently. I really didn't like the taste of the sheep one. So I gave most of it to our dogs. I liked the blue berry flavored one of the goats milk but not the plain one. So I added frozen blue berries to the plain one I had bought to try. But after eating it for days and days, I started having horrible heart burn day and night for days and days. So I stopped the yogurt and all is better again. So I am slowly feeding the rest of it to the dogs too, so I don't waste it. They love it and it doesn't seem to be bothering them at all. So they will get the treat of it until it is all gone. I went a few days with no yogurt of any kind and today I went back to a yogurt that I have had before without issues. I will see how that goes. But I won't be buying sheep or goat yogurt again, it was really expensive too, compared to what I was use to buying before. So it will save my pocket book too. It might be supposedly healthier, and less likely to cause allergies or mucus or phlegm issues, but it sure didn't agree with me. And I really didn't like the feeling of constant heart burn that didn't even really want to let up with Tums or other remedies either.

I got a haircut today and it feels nice to have that done. I was happy that my body cooperated and I didn't have to run to the bathroom. Sometimes I get anxiety with anything.

Deb - happy to hear that you are feeling well this week. I hope it continues.

Janette - sounds like a really busy time for you.

Country Carol - the dog on your Spark Page, is he the one that has to be put down? Oh, what a cutie. You are doing the right thing. I know it doesn't feel like it because of the pain in your heart. Thinking of you.

Darlene - hope that you are feeling well.

I was able to have a light breakfast today. As soon as I woke up I could feel my intestines hurting. I'm sure it is related to the fact today is the day my dog will be crossing the rainbow bridge. He was my friend who died dog, so he was especially special. I am reassured he will be reunited with her.

Sorry I haven't been on much lately. Just been busy with work and such. And I haven't been getting msgs for any of my teams either. Every once in a while it happens, I think mostly after or while they are making changes in the site is when it happens the most.

CountryCarol, I'm so sorry about your son and your dog. Prayers to you and your loved ones.

I hope all is going well for everyone else!

All my test results I was waiting on came back normal, so I think all the running to specialist is over now.

All my best to you all always.

No definite answer about my husband. The good news is the testing for his heart is good. No heart issues. He had blood tests this morning and now we wait. I have not slept well in a few days. My insomnia seems to have returned.

CountryCarol - I cannot express how sorry I am for both your son's diagnosis and also now your dog's illness. Wow, just how terrible. I pray for the entire situation, I hope that you allow prayers. No wonder you are stressed and it does effect our body. I do hope that your stomach does slow down and not cause you too many problems.

Darlene - I so agree. It takes a short time for IBS to eat us if we eat a trigger food. There are times that I do not even FINISH a meal before I have to run to the restroom.

I sure wish stress didn't effect the stomach. I am dealing with my son's diagnosis and just yesterday found out my dog has cancer which is inoperable. Obviously, I have been distraught over losing him. He is my last animal & also was my best friend's dog before she died. I will be putting him down tomorrow.

Linda, I hope all went well with your husband's testing. I know we are all going to be stressed until we find out the results of my son's testing since it will show if the cancer has spread or not.

GrandmaSusan, I'm glad the seminar went well for you last weekend

Fancyqtr, that is so true about how fast IBS can effect us after eating. I know quite soon after eating if it is reacting to what I had.

I hope all are feeling better now.

Country Carol, I am sorry about your son's diagnosis. That would be awfully hard on you. Keep looking up and help him to stay as positive as possible.

I find it very hard to understand why it normally takes several hours for something to digest, but if you have IBS it takes less than half an hour for everything to go through you and cause problems. Happened to me coming back from our beautiful trip to the mountains to see the gold. I am fine now. Hope I can remain that way tomorrow when I go to the eye doctor. Will be taking my emergency kit with me for sure (I did have it with today, too).

Have a good week, everyone. Blessings to all of you.

My husband has had some significant breathing problems. This is new but finally got him to go to the doctor. They did an EKG on him which turned out okay. However, he has to have some bloodwork done and also a stress test. I am feeling a bit nervous about it but trying not to let it get to me until I know more.

Country Carol - I am so sorry about your son's diagnosis. How rough for all in the family. I certainly can understand why your stomach is bothering you because of stress.

Susan - I am so happy that you had a good time at your seminar. It is good that you did well with your meds. But not so good that by the 3rd day you were not feeling well.

So my 3 days at the retreat went very well. Meds worked great but will need to take every other day instead of every 3 days. Third day was bad by the time I got home but had a ball. Brain and body really tired from all the seminars. So happy I got to go.

I ate all of the wrong things over the weekend. As a result, I have been ill for a few days and running back and forth to the bathroom. I ate light today and hoping that it will give my belly a break.

Deb - I can understand how you feel. It is wonderful that your son will be promoted. But so sorry that you will be missing them when they move to Chicago. (((hugs))) Hope you feel better soon.

Darlene - wow, it is tough that you cannot eat salads again. I normally can but it depends on the ingredients. I agree about the salad dressings being high cal, etc. I normally use a vinegar base. I also have been using much less dressing and just a dab here or there.

Susan - I am so happy that you are able to go to the retreat. Let us know how it went.

My son got a promotion at work , he works for Hormel, but the bad part of it is they will be moving to Chicago mid October. I am really going to miss seeing them. Right now they only live about 2 hours away. It is a good thing Heidi (my daughter in law ) takes lots of pictures. At least I will get to keep up with Molly that way. Even though I am happy for them this is causing major stress for me so not feeling very good again.

I don't know what goes on, but I've not been getting notices on this team again. Nor on Genealogy.

Susan, that is great that you will be able to go to your retreat. I liked to go on the ones I went on with my old church and also the one at the new church, though the new one was just right there in the church. The old church used to go to their retreats in the mountains for 3 days. Then the area churches decided they would do them separately. It was nice getting to meet people from all the other churches in the area (of at least state), though.

Have any of you had problems with something you couldn't eat for years, but have been able to eat the last 12 years or so, suddenly becoming something you can't eat again? I have been working on going low carb and suddenly I can't eat salads again. I specifically got them because they are low carb. Not because of low calorie, because the salad dressings are definitely not that. It makes me so upset. Other than that, I have mostly been doing well enough that I can go out and play pickleball and am trying to get into other things. Now if I can just read times right and they don't cancel the classes, I might manage it.

Hope everyone else is doing well.

I am having an okay day. I have a bit of gas this evening but not too bad. Hoping that things stay well through the weekend.

Susan - I am happy that the pill has been helping you.

CountryCarol - I have also taken Beano. It really does help.

Susan, I hope soon they can figure out how to get the C & D under control for you.

I've been taking Beano recently when I go out to dinner. I've had a noticeable difference. I use to get horrible gas and bloating afterwards and that seems so much better. It doesn't totally go away, but is much better than it was.

So happy I found his group. It is just really hard to explain to people why I canít do this or why I canít do that. Dr put me on a pill that is supposed to help but today hasnít been going very well. They said choose which I want help with D or C. I chose D since that is what is hampering my social outings. Excited to see how this works out for the next few weeks.

Thanks for all the nput.

Today I went to the gym and it was our day to eat light. We ate way too much the past couple of days. It was a meatless day. Hot and humid today day and will be tomorrow as well. No problems with IBS since Sunday. Sunday was awful.

Susan - I am so sorry about your issues. I know they are so bad. Hope the doctor can do more to help you.

Country Carol - it is awesome that you had no problems when you are traveling.

Janette - happy that you were able to rest over the weekend although you had some work to do. Have a good week.

I hope you are all feeling better asap!

I just stayed home and rested and did some bookkeeping for work over the three day holiday weekend. And I only had to go into work for a really short time today. Mainly just to get something out in the mail and to check what came in the mail.

Take care

Since my IBS issues have been flaring about 1 day per week, I am trying to eat better. But I know that anything can effect me on certain days

CountryCarol - I had the D issues yesterday. It could have been the food I ate on Saturday. I am not sure but I was certainly miserable. Hope you feel better today. I do.

I hear a lot of people say that, without really knowing why. Maybe just stress of getting ready to go, or stress of fear of what might go wrong, or maybe just the long drives? Or just doing something out of the usual throws us off?

The last couple of days I have been doing well. I came down a pound this week and happy about that. I have been keeping busy as well.

Janette - happy for you that you can do your work from home. That should be good for you. Happy to hear that your tests came back well. Hoping the biopsy as well.

CountryCarol - I hope that your sinuses are better. I get the sinus issues a lot with changing weather and allergies.

My appt Tuesday with the GI went easy. I had already printed out all their forms from the internet and had them filled out before I got there, along with another sheet that had the usual questions they ask me typed out too with my prescriptions, allergies, and other details. I just went in and they talked to me. Said they didn't see any need to do the test my primary sent me for, as my levels really were not that high, and nothing to worry about, and according to their standards I wasn't past due to have a colonoscopy, that I am actually not due for it until sometime next year. And since I wasn't in any pain, or having any symptoms that would concern them, they didn't see any need to subject me to invasive tests that I really wasn't wanting to go through either. So I got out of the colonoscopy and the Upper GI that my primary was pushing for that I didn't want to go through. So all I had to do is do another blood test lab work for them, and since that came out all normal, I am good to go for at least another year.

My biopsy that I went through today wasn't nothing to worry about either. Just felt a little pressure, no pain, and still no pain from it. She said everything looked okay, but did the biopsy just to be sure. So I should know about it in a few weeks.

After my biopsy, I went on into work as I felt fine. I went ahead and I ran all my payroll for Monday today, so I donít have to go into work Monday. I probably wonít have to go in Tuesday either since I finished all my payroll, except for one on Friday. And of course I still have bookkeeping to do, but I can do it at home. So I might get to stay home a lot next week and just work from home.

Take care

Thanks! I got a call from the GI Dr's office today, my blood work turned out normal, so no other test or procedures are needed at this time for them. Now I just have to deal with the biopsy at the women's clinic on Friday. Take care

I hope you feel better asap. I have woke up with wheezing two mornings in a row and didn't sleep well each night either. I think it might be from the weather changing. We went from hot days and nights, to warm to hot days with cooler temps in the wee hours and mornings. The last two nights I woke up and turned off the fan, then woke up later and closed the windows too, and even grabbed the quilt to throw over me instead of just leaving it on the opposite side of the bed for the dogs to lay on if and when ever they wanted to come into the bedroom with me. Luckily they haven't been coming into the room until just before I was ready to get up in the morning or already up any ways, so they were not laying on it so I couldn't get it to throw on me. I think it is getting time to get my blanket back out of the cupboard instead of just having the sheet for myself. Then the dogs can have their quilt and I can have my own blanket. We are still mostly in the high 80's and into the 90's during the day, but our nights are getting down to the mid to low 60's now.

Today has been a bad day for me. I woke up feeling okay but D started to come around the end of my exercise class. It has been bothering me ever since. So I am sipping on camomile tea. I really hate days like this.

Janette - good luck with your tests.

CountryCarol - so happy that you have done well with your symptoms. Enjoy the gym...I love going.

Janette, I have the opposite problems. Bloating, gas & constipation. Luckily, with my diet I seem to have it in control. I sure wish I would have known years ago that I would have relief by controlling what I eat. My late husband had Crohn's and dealt with what a lot of you are dealing with. We always had to make sure there was a bathroom near when traveling.

The ideas are great. I remember having to take an extra pair of panties to work or other places years ago. Because I am retired, I no longer have the stress that bothered me so much.But I still always have a bit of anxiety before I go certain places - it can even be a problem going to church but I do go anyway. I hate stress. Occasionally a restaurant salad may bother me or chili with beans.

After that incident, I have never needed them again. When I first went back to work I was nervous and just took some with me, but never needed them. I don't even take them with me anymore. But it is nice to know that there is something out there that I can use if I ever feel the need again.

Sometimes just the fear of having an issue can cause the issue. I remember years ago I was trying to empty out some storage units of my sister's by myself. The units were so hot and dark that summer, so I was pulling stuff out to sort out of the unit. I was making piles for trash, recycle, donate to charity, give to friends and family, and to keep. I would have all this stuff out in piles and then feel the need to go bad and have to try to shove it all back in fast and lock it up and then drive or walk all the way to the other side of the storage lot, punch in a code to get into the bathroom. The first time I didn't make it there in time and had a mess in my shorts. After that the fear was worse than anything else. Luckily she had some clothes that I could fit into in the storage unit. I walked back to her unit got some clean clothes and walked back to the bathroom. Luckily no one else seemed to be around that weekend, so I had the place to myself. I cleaned myself up and put on the clean clothes, threw my dirty ones in a plastic trash bag and threw it behind the truck seat. I loaded up the stuff to keep, and give to friends in the back of the truck. Left the other piles back in her storage unit and locked it up for the day. I went home and cleaned up better and put clean clothes of my own on. The next day I went and got some adult disposable diapers. Put one of those on and brought some spares and baby wipes with me. Never needed them again. But having them with me, finally eased up my fears. I was able to finish the project then without issues, and the fear of what might happen was gone.

They have newer diapers now for adults that are slimmer and less noticeable on you. I got one like that. But now I keep seeing new ones that are supposed to be even more slim and less noticeable. If you haven't tried them, you should. Or at least pick some up just to have with you just in case. It makes such a difference, knowing that you have a back up plan if you need it.

Deb, seems when I go away my symptoms get worse too. I bring food with me also.

Restaurant food is the worse for me. I do so much better when I make my own food at home.

I have been at my son and daughter in laws the last few days and am noticing it is way worse even though I tried to bring food with me that I know I have not had problems with in the past.

Thanks! I hope all is well with the team! I had a busy week with work, and also a leaking hot water heater at home. But that is taken care of now, and I got the day off of work today. So trying to catch up on all I missed in here now.

I have never had venison, so I don't know how it would react with IBS.

Take care. Janette

We eat a lot of venison and I do not have problems with it.
I do mix 1 lb with 3 lbs hamburger and onion and fry then put 2 cups in each freezer bag. That is 1 lb and then I am ready for casseroles. Steak I do n the crock pot with veggies or I make stew.

Susan, sounds like you have some very good friends. I hope you will be feeling better soon.

I was quite nervous about how I would feel eating out on Friday after my son's wedding, but I did well surprising me. I did take some Beano right before eating.

I have a question for you all. My mom said venison is good for the stomach. I only eat chicken and fish. I did not have it for fear of how my stomach would react. Do any of you have venison? If so, how did you react to it?

When will it ever end? Is there a relief for symptoms or do I just need to get on with my life? So new to this. If this is the norm then onward and upward I will go. No more complaining. emoticon

GrandmaSusan - you REALLY do have some great friends. Whenever I have had C for a few days, D seems to follow. It is horrible not having as many normal days as so many people do. I really hope that you are going to feel better soon.

Well the dam finally broke after 10 days of constipation. Then D. I have finally made another Dr appt. We are going to a friends bbq on Labor Day. It is on their property where they are getting ready to build. They are so kind that they are taking their little trailer that has a bathroom just for me. Now that is a friend. My other friend came over and brought homeopathic items and even massaged my stomach with essential oils. Another true friend.

I have felt pretty well yesterday and today. I tried to focus more on my calories and food intake for the past couple of days. I hope that things continue as they are.

Janette - happy to hear that you are doing well. Also, the fact that you are getting in a lot of walking is a good thing. Our temps have been a bit cooler also. I like it.

Friday's at work during the summer months are usually fast and easy, run in and run out. But sometimes things go crazy, and yesterday was one of those days. I was working at home from early morning and then had to go into work to run a bunch of reports, handle calls and email, deal with some rush bookkeeping. I ended up at work late with it all. And I still have to rush some bookkeeping this weekend for a couple of clients.

It is still cooler than it had been, but still warm and muggy during the day. But at least the mornings and evenings are not as bad as before.

Have a great weekend and take care
