Thanks Linda, I am taking an expectorant to help get it out and dry it up, so hopefully it will go away with out having to go to the drs. Some times I have to get antibiotics and steroids to get rid of it.

Hi and thanks everyone! Well I got the weekend to myself and looks like I get Monday and Tuesday to myself too, until late at night when I go to get the bf from the airport. He thinks he should clear customs around midnight. The ex said she can get the kid off to school and meet him after school all this week. And she said we can figure out the kid's schedule after the bf gets home and we know what his schedule is going to be like. So I guess I get at least a couple more days to myself to try to get over the bronchitis I came down with Sat morning. IBS is still doing fine, just have mostly a dry hacking cough from the bronchitis and congestion. But doing fine other wise.
I hope you are all feeling better asap! take care.

Linda I am sorry the fudge sickle made you feel bad. IBS seems to have that effect unfortunately, and you never know when it will strike. I have had the same reaction to banana's. I hope you have had a better day.

Janette I bet you are excited to see your bf after such a long trip. Hopefully you two can have some quality time together in between the son and his issues.

I have had a very rough few days, mostly with depression. My daughters birthday is coming up and I want to see her so badly. We shipped her birthday box off. Linda I may be in Florida sooner than later if I don't snap out of this. I get my thyroid levels checked next week and I am going to talk with the doctor to see if low levels could be triggering such a bad bluesy feeling. I basically haven't been watching my food intake either. Obviously exercising with my knee has been limited, and top that off with bouts of imbalance. Ironically, my IBSD has been somewhat calm this week. I wonder if the meds for vertigo is calming it down. On a happier note our Labrador is healing quite well and thinks she should have all the attention and food she wants. She has been standing in front of me with her ears perked up and tail twirling like a pinwheel while dancing with her front paws like a deer would. All this to get your attention that she wants you to play. She's a ten year old toddler lol!!

We have had a cloudy but cool day here inTN. You can tell fall is here. I hope that everyone had a wonderful Sunday and a great week!! Take care everyone.

Linda

I went clothes shopping today with another woman and her teenage daughter. It was fun. But I was tired when I came home. I felt well all day but ate a fudgsicle when I came home. Now I have some cramping. Sometimes I can eat them. Other times they hurt me. I hope that you all have a great evening.

Janette - I am happy to hear that your bf will be home soon. I know that you are anxious to see him.

Good evening everyone. I got to have a nice talk with the bf tonight. He is coming home late Tuesday, Woo Hoo.

I got to enjoy myself listening to music and reading a funny book in the truck this morning instead of being inside the ex's house with a rude kid. He was still rude when I went to the door to tell him it was time to go, but at least then I just turned around and went back to the truck and didn't have to put up with him any more. And as soon as I saw him heading to the school I got to come back home.

I think I just have to do it next Monday and Tuesday now, but not sure really how long I have to keep going over there?

Well take care everyone. Janette

Today I ran some errands. I also took a walk, ate within my calorie range - did pretty well. I also felt well.

LindaB - so sorry about your knee pain. Ouch! Your dog sounds like a sweetheart.

Janette - so happy to hear that the boy will be getting some therapy. He really sounds like he needs it.

Lewi - hope that you are having a good evening.

Thanks Linda B, That is why the dad didn't want him going to the first one any more and wanted a second opinion as the first one just wanted to push meds on him and nothing else. So now they are going to try to find some one for cognitive behavioral therapy, and meds as a last resort. I am so relieved after talking with the mom today. She really seemed to care about my feelings and concerns this time and seems really willing to work with me to try to get the boy to see that he can not be rude to me any more with out some type of punishment for it! I don't know what that will be yet, but at least she is going to tell him that it will not be tolerated any more. That I am just there to help them and don't need to be walked on by him just because he doesn't like it.

Well take care everyone, it is late and I have to get up early tomorrow to go back and make sure he leaves the house in the morning for school. Janette

Linda I am glad you feel better as well. Vertigo is NOT fun!!

Lewis keep up the great work!

Janette I am happy the Mom is at least helpful in addressing hiss behavior with you. I am equally happy to hear he will get counseling. Hopefully they will counsel and not jack him up on meds.

My day was long but well. My Lab was gnawing her bandage off so I removed it since it was her dew toe that was torn. She did really well without it, other than bathing it to death. I love that dog, she has so much personality it's hilarious. My knee has been absolutely painful today for some reason and nothing is easing the pain. Can't wait for the injection and praying it works for a few years.

Hope everyone has a beautiful and happy Friday!! Take care and stay safe.

Linda

Thanks Linda!

The bf should be home the end of this month, so just a few more days. I just had a great talk with the kid's mom, she wasn't not happy with his behavior to me today either. So she is going to have a chat with him and let him know that it won't be tolerated. She said I could just come and sit in my truck tomorrow and listen to music or read a book and I don't even have to come inside. I can just knock on the door at 8:30 and tell him it is time to leave. That she is just more concerned that he will lose track of time playing and not leave for school on time, then him trying to maybe double back to the house or just wander off after I leave. So I think I just have a few more days of this. And the kid is going to get thrown into counseling asap too! Something that I have been thinking the kid needed since I met him, so woo hoo.
All my best to you all always. Janette

Hello ladies!! The week is almost over and that is a great thing. I have a few plans for the weekend. I felt well today but extremely sleepy now. I should sign off soon and go to bed. I was diagnosed with Vertigo today. Not a good thing but it has really been something I expected with all of my issues.

Janette - I certainly hope that bf is back soon; This has been a lot for you to have on your shoulders. I hope that you sleep well tonight.

Hi, I am still trying to sort through stuff around the house and garage, it feels like it will never end. But then more and more stuff keeps getting piled up from the mail, the guys, and such too. And inheriting so much stuff from my parents and sister didn't help either.

And now the boy and his mom have me hopping all the time trying to watch the boy. And the boy is obviously not happy with the idea that I am the one watching him. He keeps telling me that he would rather just have me show up right at 8:30 am like an alarm to tell him to leave for school. But I have to come from another city at least 20 mins away, and with traffic some times it could take me more like 30 mins to an hr to get there. And I don't want to show up when he has left and be standing there ringing the door bell wondering if he has already left, or he is just ignoring me because he is having too much fun on the computer skyping and playing a game with a friend of his. And I don't want to be rushing in traffic and get in an accident. So I leave early so that I can try to get there around 8 am- 8:15 am, shortly after his mom has already left for her appt. So I just end up sitting with him for 15-30 mins before I make sure he leaves for school on time. Today, he tried to rush out the front door leaving me inside to figure out what to lock and not to lock. So I had to call him back and tell him it is his house, and his responsibility, that I am his guess and that he should guide me out and make sure to lock up behind us. He didn't like that and kept trying to make me responsible for it all, and then even tried to close a gate on me shutting me in his back yard and taking off with out me again! He can be so rude to me some times!
It is all just wearing me down! I am having problems sleeping at night, doing a lot of tossing and turning, or just can't shut my mind off. I can't wait for the bf to get back home and help out with all of this. Hopefully at the end of the month he will come back.
Well take care ladies,
Janette

Enjoy your time alone Janette!

All is well with me my exrays and tests on my lung are normal, hallelujah! My gel injection in my knee has been approved and scheduled for Oct 7th. Wish it was tomorrow. My Labrador Miko decided to jump in my chair and ripped her toenail out so here we went to the emergency vet. Said it tore down at base so they trimmed off. What a day!!

Take care everyone and have a great day!

Hi and all my best to you all always.

Well got a call from the bf, he should be coming home on the 30th hopefully now. Plans changed from me with the kid too. He wants to stay with his mom, so I will just go and sit for about 15 mins each morning with him to make sure he leaves for school. He wants to walk by himself too, so I don't have to drive him to school either, I just have to go to Poway and make sure he leaves his mom's house in time. So WooHoo! I get most of my days and all my nights to myself until the bf comes home. All though tomorrow he only has a half day schedule, so I have to meet him at his mom's house again after school and sit with him just on that day for several hrs until his mom gets back home. So no big deal.

Take care everyone.
Janette

Goodmorning everyone! I finally calmed my ears and tummy down. Still waiting on test results but feel confident that it's nothing. I have not been eating well but holding on at any rate. I guess I had a week of the blues. Our daughters birthday is coming up and I am really missing her.

Hope everyone is feeling well and having a great day! Take care.

Hi ladies, I see everyone had a good day. Yesterday, I started the 28 day boot camp challenge. Yesterday was cardio, and today toning. Today, I didn't eat enough, but the food that I ate was good choices. Tomm I will hit the gym for some cardio. My trainer told me it's time for me to step my game up...so here goes nothing.

I came across this today and thought I would share with you ladies:

Set goals and even if you don't hit them completely, acknowledge at the progress you've made.
Don't be too hard on yourself.

Today I went to the gym and got a lot of exercise. I ate much better today also. Feeling well today.

Janette - glad that you had some relaxation without the boy at your home. I know that he will be coming over this week but I hope that he spends the majority of time at his mother's place. That will free you up.

Thanks Linda, I had several glorious days to myself and loved the peace and calm. Tomorrow I will probably have the boy all day and night or at least until around 3pm, and then again at bed time. Then the rest of the week I will have the boy at bedtime and then in the morning I will drop him off to school. And his mom is suppose to have him after school, get his home work done, take him to football if he is going to go, and get him dinner. And I am sure he will try to change the schedule around again too. I might have him Wed after school as it is just a half day too? But not sure yet what will happen that day.

Take care everyone. Janette

In my area of Florida (near St. Pete) we haven't had anything but rain. But there were other areas of the state that had worse weather than us. Very sleepy tonight. But I did get in almost 60 minutes ate the gym. Feeling well.

Thanks Linda B! I am still doing fine with ibs. Weather has been a bit cooler the last two days too, which is such a relieve! We had been around 100 or higher or just close to it for some time, but the last few days we only got into the 80's.

Well take care every one. All my best to you all always. Janette

Just dropping in to say hi! Still spinning and now running as well. Fall in Tennessee is aweful for me.

Janette I am glad you are doing so well. Hoping it continues.

Linda! I hope you are also feeling better. You guys have been getting some crazy weather from what I saw on the radar yesterday.

Lewis I found that certain ingredients mixed in a salad, or the dressing can trigger a reaction for me. One day I can eat it and I am fine, the next time I eat a salad it will send me running even so I had the same salad. There is no rhyme or reason with IBS. You might try breaking each ingredient down to see if there is a trigger food you can avoid.

Well have a great weekend everyone! Chat soon.

Linda

Thanks for the tips and it's funny that you mentioned that. Because my IBS has been under control all week until I ate that salad. Then I googled what could be taken to prevent bloating and came across Beano. As soon as I can I'm going out and getting some.

I haven't been to San Diego since I was a kid, was in San Fran about 2 years ago.

I am still doing good with my IBS, even with the stress of the bf staying up in Canada, on business longer than planned.

Hi Everyone, Glad all is well. Dealing with Vertigo for last two days. IBSD did settle down thankfully. Had exrays done yesterday so still waiting on that but I believe it was scar tissue from a bout of pneumonia years ago.

Sorry I have been so erratic but allergies are kicking in high gear here. Take care everyone.

LEWISPLEASANT, I am from San Diego, CA and lived there most of my life. But I have also lived in VA for about 1.5 yrs, I have lived in several cities on the out skirts of San Diego too. Several yrs ago I move to Escondido, CA which is a city just above San Diego, and still considered a part of San Diego.

About the bloating from salad, you might want to try "beano" or one of those things to see if it helps the situation. Or switch up what is in the salad too. So people don't tolerate salad greens well and just give up the salads and switch to just eating steamed or cooked veggies. As steaming and cooking the greens and veggies some times can really help with the gas issues. Cruciferous vegetables like cauliflower, cabbage, cress, bok choy, broccoli, brussels sprouts, kale and similar green leaf vegetables can be hard on the digestion if not cooked especially.

Hi Ladies, sorry that I've been out of the loop. I've had presentations at work all week. And they just so happen to be in the evenings. Haven't gotten the exercise that I want to in, but I've been sticking to watching what I eat. Been feeling really good for the past few days until right now, just feel bloated and all I ate was a salad...but this too shall pass..

Where are you ladies from? I'm originally from Los Angeles, but I moved to Louisiana about 8 1/2 yrs ago... but I've been living in Texas for the past year and a half.

Thanks Linda! The plan keeps changing back and forth. He was suppose to go to his mom's this afternoon but he decided to stay here instead. So we had it all planned out that I would take him to school tomorrow. But later he changed his mind as he didn't like that I was questioning him about just going where ever he wanted on U-Tube with out asking me, and there were some other issues that came up too. So I called his mom and she took him back. Supposedly she is just going to have him walk himself to school when she has to leave the next two days. As they live really close to the school and he has done that before, and that is what he was begging to get to do. So we will just have to see how it goes? Both parents let him stay home a lot when they are pretty sure he really isn't sick. Maybe stressed out, or upset about something at school or home. I hope that if he doesn't go to school she will really take him to see his dr again to talk about his feelings and see if they can't do something to help him get in a better frame of mind, and get him going back to school regularly.
But at the same time I am glad that I might have a couple of days to myself! Take care. Janette

Today I got in a lot of exercise. I am in the middle of my calorie range which makes me happy. A little bit of stress but it is just a crabby husband. grrr But I do feel well.

LindaB - so sorry to hear that you are having issues tonight. I know it is just awful. Do you think any of it is because of the doctor's appointment and the stress of all of it? Either way, I hope that you feel better soon. Very sorry about the spot on your lung. Praying that all is okay.

Janette - it is rather good that the boy is spending more time with his mom. At least it frees you up so that you are not with him so much. It sounds like he misses a lot of school. I guess his mother must "fall for the sick" story and let him stay home.

Just a quick note as my IBSD is raging right now. Waiting on meds to calm it down. Went to ortho today for knee and mentioned spine hurts in middle every time I get up or lay down, so exrays of back and knee were done. I have arthritis in both and they are going to try a gel injection in knee if approved. Got home and received a call that a spot was found on my lung, so I have to go back to my PCP tomorrow for more exrays to see what's going on.

Hope everyone is feeling better and take care.

Linda

Thanks Linda! The problem I have is I don't know how much of his wanting to stay home from school is just because he is stressed and upset about his mom and how much is because he just wants to stay home and play on his computer, iPad, Wii, and watch tv?

At least Monday afternoon/evening that I had him he did his homework with no problem. But today he didn't want to work on any of it. And instead of just being happy that he got to stay home from school today, he was just trying to talk me into letting him stay home again tomorrow. So it was feeling like he was just milking it and taking advantage of the situation? So it makes it harder to know the right thing to do for him. His mom and I decided after she had a long talk with him and then a long talk with me that we will let him stay home again tomorrow, but then Thursday he needs to go back, or we need to have him see a dr to talk about his feelings and to try to get a drs excuse for his missing so much school. As he really isn't sick, but he is trying hard to convince us other wise. With complaining about his head, his throat, his stomach, any and every excuse that he has used in the past. As even I know that he can only miss so much school before we have to get some type of drs excuse.

The kid decided this afternoon since I was talking about making him do home work and go back to school tomorrow, that he wanted to go back to his mom's house. So even though his mom and I agreed he could stay home with me tomorrow, I dropped him back off to his mom today along with his other dog. So tomorrow before her out patient thing she will drop him off to me or I will go get him. I think she is going to keep him in the afternoons and evens and I will have him in the day while she is in here counseling. Or he will be in school hopefully.

No IBS problems today. I am trying to do some yoga throughout the day just to keep my belly happy. I really feel it does help.

LindaB - KFC will always give me a bad reaction. But it is certainly delicious. I have felt pretty well today. I got a lot of exercise and ate within the calorie range (although I should not have eaten sweets.) Tonight, again, I have a headache. I felt well, otherwise. I have a some doctor appointments coming up and also activities.

Janette - wow, you certainly got in a lot of exercise walking over 7 miles today. It is probably tough for you to be with the boy and have so much on your plate. Hope b/f is able to return soon. I do agree that the boy has to be upset that his mom is ill.

Hope that you all have a wonderful Wednesday.

Thanks Linda B! The mom is bi-polar and I guess she had a melt down for some reason. She didn't get locked up like it sounded like was going to happen. She had to take a leave of absence from her job, and has to go to daily out patient counseling classes all week at least. Even though she got back to her house before I left with the boy and dog, I could tell she was medicated and she obliviously was in no state to take care of the boy. She was crying, and crying and carrying on, and the boy said he doesn't like seeing her sad like that, so he didn't want to stay with her any ways. But he also didn't want to leave his dog behind. So now I have my medium sized dog, our huge pup, and this big older dog, but they are all getting along just fine. I just have to make sure to keep the doors closed and take it out on a leash, as it is an escape artists at it's own house and our fence is way too low for it. The boy was really upset yesterday when he saw my truck at his mom's house but couldn't find any one. He thought that some thing terrible happened to us and that maybe we were kidnapped. I had left him a note on my truck windshield to let him know I was at the school trying to find him in case we missed each other as there are lots of ways that he could walk home and I have no cue how he goes. But he caught a ride from a friend's mom as he wasn't expecting any one to come for him, so we missed each other. He was really upset all night, I think he is going to stay home with me from school today. And we will just take it min by min, day by day.

Goodness I hope all goes well for you and the kid. I also hope that his Mom will be well soon. He must be worried even if he denies it. Kids can be quite upset without ever telling you. Take care and prayers for all.

Linda I hope you feel much better today. I believe the weather ups and downs truly does effect us on all levels physically.

Lewis I am also praying that you get some relief soon. I went for an entire year and three dr.s before I found relief. Oddly enough it was eating safe food groups and gluten free that slowed things down for me.

On that note, had a rough reaction to dinner, but that was my fault as I had my husband pick up KFC for dinner since I was dealing with vertigo and his back was hurting him severely. Vertigo s a little better since taking meds and I did get my cramps to finally stop. Linda I may be visiting my daughter soon if I have too many reactions. Besides I am missing her terribly.
Wish we could stay in FL during fall and winter. I definitely feel better in warmer climates.
Well I hope everyone has a wonderful Tuesday! Take care and find time to laugh!

Linda

amazingly the ibs is doing fine! The bf is in Canada, his ex ended up going to the hospital. I ended up walking 7.9 miles today, with all the walking getting the kid to school, and then searching for him after school, plus dog walks before and after. Seems the kid got a ride from a friend's mom. So we missed each other as he wasn't expecting any one to pick him up today. But luckily when he didn't find any one at his mom's house, and he saw my truck there he called his mom, and his dad, and his dad told him to call me as I was searching at the school for him. So I have the kid indefinitely, and I even have his other dog as he didn't want to leave him behind. I might be really busy this week and might not be on a lot.
All my best to you always. Janette

I have had such a headache today. ugh! I did get in a walk and some yoga. I did a lot of belly exercise to try to help with the IBS. I actually have been fairly good with the IBS but yesterday had some beans. They have caused me to run to the bathroom a bit. But I did go to get my haircut and colored. I was able to do that without any problems.

Have a great evening, all!!

Linda! So glad you got to enjoy your party. That's always a bonus.

Janette wishing you and the boy a great week together. Hopefully it will help both of you to better understand each other and he will feel less confused.

Lewis i hope the Digestive Advantage helps you out. I have not tried it but I was placed on an antibiotic that seemed to ease some of the issues. Also go to your safe food groups for a week or two and all should balance out somewhat.

I did loose the headache and earache thankfully. I think my fall allergies are kicking in now so dealing with a bout of vertigo and ear sensitivity. We have gone from 90's to 70's and 50's last few days. The trees have lost their green luster and started yellowing and falling. I heard that TN is in for a hard winter according to Farmers Almanac. I really hope not. I hate winter.
I told my husband I may go sleep on our daughters couch and he can pick me up when we thaw out. Lol! Well have a great week and take care everyone!

Linda

Saturday was busy for me. I cleaned and entertained 10 people. It turned out well and I didn't really stress about any belly issues. I just planned to have fun and I did. Now to bed....very tired after all of that.

LewisPleasant - it may take a week or so for the Digestive Advantage to really help you. But I think it will. I am glad that you are giving it a try.

Janette, LindaB - and everyone....enjoy your Sunday.

Hi All! I am still doing fine with the IBS. The bf leaves for Canada for the Week Monday morning and his ex will be gone part of the last on next week too. So I will be watching their 8 yr old boy for them myself. But at least we have the schedule all worked out finally, so I am not so stressed about what is happening when. I know when I am suppose to get him off to school, when I am suppose to pick him up from school and when I am suppose to get him to football practice, and what times the switch off with his mom will be. The boy had another football game today and their team won for the first time! Woo hoo, it was a close call but they won. Better than getting skunked like the last two games.
Well I wish you all the best always.
Janette
