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..." Walter P. Chrysler said it, I believe it. That's what I want in my life--to give my imagination a chance, to live with energy and enthusiasm!

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

Life comes in specific increments, which we receive as a gift of one moment at a time. That's why it's called t

Sandy, constipation is a tough one. I eat prunes almost daily. I also put Benefiber in my coffee each morning. Mostly, I'm okay.

My Dr gave me Savella, but I didn't get a chance to see how it worked for pain because it constipated me so much & so fast I had to stop taking it. Stupid IBS!!

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!

Rejection is God's protection.
