Rather than feeling overwhelmed by making lots of changes in my life I am changing just one - my attitude

"If you can't fly then run, if you can't run then walk, if you can't walk then crawl, but whatever you do you have to keep moving forward." - Martin Luther King Jr.

Hello everyone! I'm new to this group. I will begin by telling you that sometime way back in
1970's my doctor told me that I have Irritable Bowel Syndrome. He told me not to eat popcorn, or any kind of nuts, and no buns with seeds on top (like sesame). I thought he was nuts! I was too young to give up nuts and popcorn, I was in my 20's for crying out loud. Well, I didn't listen to him and have suffered with bouts of constipation and diarrhea throughout my adult life, until late last year. I went to my new doctor who referred me to a specialist, who told me ALL of my symptoms led to one major conclusion for him...IBS! Well. There it was again. Then he told me how to treat it.
He didn't tell me what NOT to eat , he told me WHAT TO EAT to help. I now take a full tablespoon of Benefiber in a glass of water every morning and eat two fruits a day. It has to be Benefiber, because the generic stuff doesn't work as well. Wow, I was shocked. That is all it takes. And, I'm happy because I can still eat nuts and popcorn. And, I'm not consipated and grouchy all the time anymore!! Yay! Happy happy and regular too, you just can't beat that!
