I got lucky in some ways--never experienced IBS in spite of having fibromyalgia--though I have some constipation issues due to the colon surgery I had last year... Long Story! LOL I take a tsp of benefiber every time I eat-- which is approximately six times a day. It worked great until my endo put me on WelChol. I had to add a bowel softener! YUCK!
Still, I can think of worse things... like what I had the surgery for! LOL
WE do what we have to, y'know?
"The real secret of success is enthusiasm..." thanks, Walter P. Chrysler. I believe it. That's what I want in my life--to give my imagination a chance, to live with energy and enthusiasm! P.S. I looked up enthusiasm, and it says the root words mean God within... interesting...!
Ralph Waldo Emerson said 'Life belongs to the energetic.' But you don't have to be frenetic and hyper--some energy is quiet and steady, like a heartbeat... and that works too! LOL
Today is the day that I start managing my condition instead of it managing me. I don't want to over obsess about it. I am starting Savella today (I have had it in my possession for two months). I just want to learn what others experience with the condition and learn management techniques. I want to continue to live and enjoy my life to the fullest!
