I felt a lot better today. This morning I moved a certain way and the back hurt but now it is okay. I had been in the rain which turned a bit cool yesterday. I don't know if that is what caused the pain or not. But a much better day.

LindaB - I am so glad that you had a good day.

Janette - I definitely am keeping you in my prayers. I do feel sorry for the boy. It is sad that his mother is like this - and that she blames you and the boy's father. I think as he grows and matures he will know the truth.

Thanks ladies! I think this lady has really helped to mess her kid up, but she doesn't seem to see it and continues to do things that just are just cruel as far as I am concerned. But the boy is such a mama's boy that he doesn't seem to take it back out on her. But then she seems to like to put the blame on us instead of herself, so that is what he hears and thinks a lot.

She is bi-polar and having more and more "Gloomy" episodes as she puts it. Luckily I have never been around her during one of her crying gloom fits. But seems more and more when the bf goes to pick the kid up from her she has one. Add to that all the times she is just not available to the kid because of business trips, or other working. Then add in all the times she is not available to the kid because she wants to hang out with her adult friends or a guy(s). And he ends up with us more than her even though it is suppose to be 50/50.

Then add in the fact that usually when she tries to push him off on us on her time for something other than work, or he is asking to see her on one of our days or nights, she is not honest with the kid, and tries to pass it off as it is our doing that he can't be with her instead of telling him the truth. So then the kid is mad at us for not being able to be with his mom. He misses her all the time and acts out a lot when he can't be with her even if he knows it is because of a business trip.

On her days/nights with him she tries to schedule a lot of play dates, sleep overs, pizza parties at Chuckie's Cheese, movies, etc, trying to make her place the fun house even on school nights. Where we don't try to schedule sleep overs on school nights, or even play dates. We try to get him to do his homework right when he gets home so he is more awake, instead of playing and then doing his homework when he is already worn out and tired, like she lets him do. Either way, homework is always a big struggle with him, as he wants nothing to do with it. Both parents let him stay up way too late in my opinion too.

And now as he is getting older he is acting out a lot more. And seems to be trying to get more and more negative attention then positive attention. Since before last yr got out of school he started talking that he thinks he is depressed like his mom and is wanting to be put on meds like his mom. She took him to a dr that wants to put him on meds and the mom seems to think it is a good idea too. But we are concerned as to whether he is really depressed, or just doing this for more negative attention, or what? We are concerned that if we let her let drs put him on meds that it could make the situation worse instead of better. As it is hard to find the right meds and dose for adults, and kids is even harder. And supposedly more chance of them going suicidal while they are trying to find the correct med and dose.

Then he was way out of line Monday while we had a friend of his doing a sleep over. So this has been a very trying week for us and she hasn't made it any easier. She emailed the bf Tues that she was coming home from a business trip early and some where being cancelled so she would be home Wed through the weekend instead of out of town. But she said she was in a "gloomy" state, so maybe the kid should stay with us still. But the bf and kid needed to have a talk with her that would be best in person about his behavior and such on Monday while she was gone. So they went to talk with her after he got out of his first day of school, Wed. And of course she wanted the bf to take the kid back home with him, but she wouldn't tell the kid that. So the bf had to be the bad guy once again, and told the kid that he needed to come with him and let his mom get some rest. The bf want's to take the kid to get a second opinion, rather than just rush in to put the kid on meds. So I don't know what is going to happen just yet. Right now I think the kid is going to spend the weekend with his mom, but that could change at any minute. Or she could pull her usual, and set up a sleep over for him at her place, or at one of his friend's house so she doesn't have to spend every minute trying to entertain him.

So keep us in your prayers ladies. At least he has been pretty well behaved for us since we had a big talk with him Tuesday.

Well all my best to you all always.

Having a good day today and trying to stay cool.

Linda I hope your back will feel better. Back pain is pretty rough as it is triggered by almost all movement.

Janette your bf's son must feel hurt by his mom at times. That will cause them to act out at times. I remember my (step) son once told me it was his fault his mom didn't want him because he didn't like a sandwich she made. It broke my heart. I explained to him that sometimes grown ups don't always grow up inside their head. I just reassured him that he was loved and cared for. I will tell you that their pain goes really deep and they don't know how to deal with it. Hopefully his mom will spend time with him more.

Take care and have a great day everyone!

Linda

I felt well today although I have had quite a back ache (upper back.) It could have been due to some of the crunches I did yesterday. But it only started hurting today so I a not sure. Have had a good day. Kept busy and did get in a walk.

Lori - I know what you are saying. There are times that you cannot tell if it is the flu or IBS. I have had that happen often. When it goes on for 2 or 3 days I usually suspect is a stomach bug.

LindaB - I am certainly hoping that your son's tests went well. Glad that you are getting some exercise in spite of the leg.

Janette - at least it is good that occasionally the son sees his mother. I wish, for your sake, that he would spend some nights with her. I know that there are times that you would like to spend time with just you and BF.

Hello Ladies, all my best to you all always. And thanks Linda B!

I am amazed that with all that has been going on lately that my ibs hasn't hit again. So I must be doing better at handling the stress.

The bf's son was suppose to be with us most of this week due to his mom being on business trips. But some of them got cancelled and she was home yesterday. So the son wanted to go and be with her. But instead he only got to go over there for a short visit with the bf to discuss some issues that have came up. But the ex wasn't up to keeping him over night, so he came back to us. Luckily the night went really well, as he could have acted out just because his mom was home, but didn't want to have him spend the night with her. He is suppose to get to go to her after school today and spend the night, so we will have to see if she really does that, or she sends him back to us? I have a feeling that he will be with us mostly the next few months.

Well take care everyone.

Janette so glad things are calmer with you and the son. They can and will push and test us to see what they can get away with. Hopefully one day he will see how much you do for him and surprise you with his respect and admiration.

Lori it is very hard to tell the difference of IBS and flu, but basically the flu would also cause fever, congestion and overall aches. I have acute IBSD and I have gotten sick at my stomach from the pain and chills. It is very frustrating but draining. I hope you will feel better soon.

Linda! I had a bowl of Cheerios and the cramps and D hit me. The next time it was a Peanut Butter and Jelly sandwich doubled me over for an hour with cramps and D. Any other day I will eat these items and feel nothing. Basically it is a brain -gut disorder that has no rhyme or reason. I think we are at the mercy of this unknown illness.

I had a good day today overall. Went to my PCP yesterday and he did blood work to check my cholesterol out. I have been really tired lately and cold. Think my thyroid levels are wacked out again. Took my mother in law to doctor and she got her stitches removed. Now she just has to give it time for her broken wrist to heal. She is doing better but has been very quiet and down this week. I mentioned that to the dr as well and the fact that she is hardly eating. She is not looking well to me. Hopefully the blood work will tell us something on her as well. Her memory and balance is both really bad and I am worried for her. My Mom is doing better since her mini stroke but she too is really weak and tired and dizzy. All her tests seem to be ok but she isn't acting well I think. Our son has not called us back so I am guessing stress test must be ok. If I thought about everything going on right now I think I would be in a constant run to our favorite room in the house. I have gotten pretty good at blocking bad things out until I have to remember them. It's the only way I know to keep my tummy somewhat calm.

On a good note, even with my knee injured I have managed to meet my daily goals and sometimes more. It's a start at least.

I hope everyone has a wonderful and happy Thursday! Take care.

Well, I woke up with a bit of D again today. ugh! I have a meeting to go to later and that stresses me out - when I have D. I will take an Imodium and hope for the best.

Janette - you and your family are in my prayers. Kids can put us through the ringer at times.

Thanks Linda! This one really put us through the ringer yesterday and today! I surely don't need more right now. I am afraid this one is going to be hard to handle the rest of his life. Not going to go into details. But if I was a drinking person this could have really drove me to it.

All my best to you all always. Say some prayers for me ladies, this one is going to test me!

Today I had a touch of D again. But it didn't last long. I really think it may have been something that I ate. I am still taking my probiotic so there hasn't been any other reason for the D. But I did get in my walk and other exercise today, anyway.

LindaB - thank you for the well wishes. Hope all is well for you.

Janette - happy that you are down to one child tonight. More than one can keep ya hopping. I remember when my kids were young.

Thank you for your well wishes and prayers Linda and Janette. We still haven't heard anything but I imagine he is okay. Yes it is a big worry but I am trying not to think about it too much so my tummy can settle down. So far I have had a much better day and walked a bit.

Hope you guys have a great afternoon and a wonderful Wednesday. Take care!

Thanks everyone! So sorry to hear about your son, Linda B. All my best to you and your family always.

All my best to you all always.

Well I am down to just one kid here tonight, and he will be here all week with us and his mom is on business trips all week. He starts back to school Wed thought, so I get to drop him off to school Wed & Thurs for the bf and his ex. And then the house is mine during the day again, yeah! Did tons of dishes and pots and pans stacked up to deal with today since the boil water order is over, and tons of laundry too. Still have more laundry for tomorrow to deal with, I am calling it a night though. Take care

I felt well today. I went to the gym and also got other exercise. So thankful that this was a good day. But I am so tired this evening. Ready to hit the sack.

LindaB - I certainly pray that your son's tests turn out well. That is a very big worry for you.

Janette - happy to hear that your boil water advisory is over.

Janette so glad your boil water is over. Sounds like you had a mini cub group lol!! I always had a lot of girls in my house and I so miss that now.

Linda I am sorry you are having issues still as well. Yes it does seem to be a lot. We just found out our son was in the hospital due to high blood pressure and is having a stress test done. He is 38. He never called us because he didn't want to worry my MIL. When it rains....
Placing it all in Gods hands and taking it one thing at a time. If I didn't I would loose it I think.
It was a quiet day mostly so took it easy today.

Hope everyone has a great Tuesday! Take care.

Thanks everyone! Woo Hoo, the boil water order is over, and luckily, I don't feel any worse than before. The bf on the other hand said he had the big D all day yesterday while they were out fishing. I still have an extra kid here today, and for a bit there the neighbor boy was here too!

Well all my best to you all always. Janette

I hope that you are all doing well. Sunday brought a bit of D for me. Not certain what I ate to cause it. But it did not come with a lot of cramping. Feeling better now.

Janette - I am glad that you have more bottled water. I hope that they call off the boil water alert soon.

LindaB - so sorry about your hubby. I am so sorry that there has been so much illness with your family members.

Thanks Linda B, Well I still haven't heard anything about calling off the boil water order. So I had the guys pick up more water as they came back in from fishing as they decided to bring a friend of the son's home with them that went fishing with them. So still doing the bottled water thing, and I will have two kids home all day with me tomorrow too.

I too have a bathing suit with a skirt built in.

All my best to you all always.

Janette so sorry for the boil water thing. It is aweful to go through and then you have to flush out all the pipes to boot until you are comfortable. We went through that in 2010 when we had the huge flood in Nashville and it flooded two of the main water treatment plants. Good luck with that. I will say a prayer for you that the meds keep you safe and well.

Linda so glad you are feeling better as well. I am like you, I do not enjoy shopping for suits at all. They always say we are our own worst critic. I am really hippy so I tend to go for the skirted suits myself or the shorts.

I did rest today as it was a rainy day and lounged watching my favorite non denominational pastor and hallmark movies. Hubby has had 3 really bad days and can hardly walk so he has stayed in bed. I told him I was going drill sergeant on him mid week if he wasn't better and he would see his doctor. His mom sees her oncologist Tuesday and Wednesday she gets her stitches taken out. The broken wrist is healing. I spent the day with my Mom Friday and so enjoyed that. She is still pretty weak.
I guess I do have some stress going on but I try not to think about it and take it one day at a time. Think I need a vacation though soon. lol!!!!!

Have a wonderful Sunday and take care everyone!!! emoticon

Thanks Linda, Luckily we already had some bottled water. And the guys will be gone fishing in Mexico supposedly most of tomorrow. So I will probably end up going to the store to pick us up more water if they don't call it off tomorrow. I am just washing the dishes from tonight and throwing them in the dish washer to run it tomorrow if the boil order is called off. But I did read that I could go a head and run it now, but just make sure to set it for a sanitation rinse. But hoping it the order gets called off fast. Other wise we might move to disposable stuff to eat on and with. All my best to you all always.

Today was a pretty good day. I spent a lot of it shopping for gifts for grandchilden and also buying a swimsuit for me. Of course, I am not thrilled with trying on suits. But I am in the pool a lot. No problems with IBS today.

Janette - it is rough for you to now have the boil water problem with your infections. Yes, please keep drinking that bottled water. You do not want anymore health issues.

LindaB - so sorry that you are have such severe issues with your IBSD. I am fortunate that lately mine has been pain but not running to the bathroom. Please rest and take care. Is it possible that a lot of it can be stress? I know that you have been dealing with a lot with your mother & MIL.

That's the way to be! I am still fighting infections and I just found out that there was a boil water order for us yesterday and today, that I didn't find out about until a little bit ago on FB. But I am not letting it get me down. Boiling water and drinking bottled water until I hear other wise. And since I am on antibiotics for bacteria infection any ways until Wed morning and bacteria is what they are worried about in our water I think I will be okay that I didn't know about the order right away? Or at least I am hoping any ways. Take care every one.

So sorry to hear both of you, Linda and Janette having problems. I hope all will settle down soon.

I too am having terrible IBSD issues and can't seem to stop it. Its almost as bad as it was over the winter, except I have no clue why. Wonder if the sudden weather changes and fluctuations could have any bearing on it. My stomach muscles feel like I have been doing calisthenics for hours.

Hopefully we will all feel better and have a great weekend!! Lets pray its so. Take care and hugs sent your way.

Linda

Last night I had terrible cramping again, just as I did over the weekend. I did not really eat any trigger food but had it anyway. I didn't have D.

Will check back later. I need to shop and exercise.

Yes, it doesn't help that I am allergic to a lot of stuff, and don't even know what all I am allergic too. Then some meds can just be hard on your stomach and other parts of your body, like this antibiotic is. But at least the first problem seems to be healing up nicely, so hopefully after I finish this antibiotic it stays that way and then my body can start getting use to being off of it again.

All my best to you all always.

Linda glad you are feeling better.

Janette I agree, meds can be really bad and leads to other issues. Hope it works out.

I was awakened from sleep with severe cramps and D. This time I actually got sick once with it. I have always felt nausea but this was the first response to it. Slept all day yesterday after episodes ended. Much better today. I did email symptoms to doctor for our. Meeting on 27th. I just don't think this is IBS. I think IBD or Crohns possibly. We shall see I guess.

Take care everyone and have a wonderful Friday!!

Linda

Glad to hear you are doing better. I seem to have one problem with one med, then take another med for the new problem and then get a third problem and a third med. But hoping to work my way out of this soon. All my best to you all always. Janette

I did not sleep well at all last night. I kept getting up because of the belly cramping. Today has been better. I had some cramping earlier but it has subsided.

LindaB - so sorry to hear about the accident with MIL. That is so sad.

Janette - glad to hear that you are going to take the meds.

Was awoken by the sound of my Mother In Law falling in the hallway. She blessedly fell between the door frame and didn't hit it. She tried to step ver our Lab and our Lab was getting up to move out of her way, thus causing the collision. She got 4 Stitches in her good hand and a cast from her fingers to her upper arm from a broken wrist. Bless her heart after getting through a rough year this happens. This is her third fall and I just don't see her being able to go home unless someone goes to live with her.

I am doing well just extremely tired .

Linda I do hope you have a better night and can enjoy yourself. Janette hope you have a great Sunday as well.

Take care and sending hugs your way.

Thanks ladies! All my best to you all always. The abscess area is doing much better since it popped Thursday night. But it keeps slowly building back up with pressure and blood. I don't see any more puss out of it, but it does bleed when trying to clean it. And in the evening it seems to have built up more blood and pressure. It isn't hurting like before, but I haven't let it build back up big like before. I have just been keeping an eye on it and trying to keep the area clean between meals and such. When the dr saw it, it hadn't built up blood and pressure from the cleaning before going. So she didn't get any blood out or see it building up. I think I will start on the antibiotics tomorrow to try to make it go away since it keeps trying to build back up with blood at least, not sure if there is still any infection in there that I am just not seeing or not. If it was just staying flat and not bleeding I would just leave it alone. But since it is not, I think I will play it safe and take the medicine since I have it.

Hi Janette. I read about your advice on the meds and it makes a lot of sense to me. Thank you for sharing that information. I am hoping to get a better ideal of what they think is going on when I see the doctor later this month. I am so sorry to hear about your abscess tooth. Be sure to be careful that it doesn't get in your blood stream. Our son ended up in the hospital because of an abscess and the infection got into his blood stream and travelled. He is in late 30's and we had no ideal until he called us deathly ill. It was very scarey and the doctor just made it worse telling us of worse case scenarios. Really wish they would keep that out of the equation until you actually have that particular illness.

Linda I am so glad you are feeling much better. It is really hot and humid here as well. We are suppose to get a brief break next week, then back in the 90's with 70% humidity. Yuck!

My husband had his L3, L4, and L5 nerve deadened yesterday. He did pretty good yesterday while his back was numb and slept good last night, but of course he over did it today running around, going to store, and some tinkering outside. Why is it so hard for men to just relax a few days and heal? So because he was playing Mr. macho man he is in pain this afternoon. Lol!! I told him his mom and I were going to sit on him if he didn't get still. He is doing fine otherwise and it looks like it might help if he will give it time to heal. I am doing pretty good today, no IBSD issues woohoo!!

I picked up the antibiotics today just in case I need them later. But so far it seems okay still, no pain just a little blood when cleaning the area with my finger instead of tooth brush right now until it is healed better.

Thanks Linda, I think it is because all the rule for Medi-Cal keep changing. They just starting allowing some dental stuff again a few months ago, but just a few things are allowed, and mainly just for the front teeth, and this in on my side. I think they are all still just trying to figure it out and some want to cover their own behinds when they are not sure. Luckily after sitting for a while at my primary care's ofc I got to see a different dr and she thought it would take care of itself now that it popped and the puss was out of it. She examined my whole mouth really good and said it looked really good, no sign of puss, open sores or blood any more. But she is calling in a prescription for antibiotics for me just in case and told me she would be working the urgent care center close to me this weekend if I needed help again. So I will just have to see how it goes.

Took a walk and worked out to a workout video. It was a good day. But again a hot and humid day! I also did some housecleaning. Today I felt well. Hope it lasts through the weekend.

Janette - I am so sorry that you have the abscess. I know they really hurt. I just cannot understand why you have to go through all of this and your insurance company is not giving you any clear answers about coverage. I do hope that a physician or dentist has given you an antibiotic.

Well I developed an abscess that popped last night on my gums, so off to a walk-in appt to primary care dr to see what to do about it. Ins only wants to handle medical not dental, The numbers I have to call Re: coverage for Medi-Cal have differing opinions as to how to handle. One said to go to primary care first and then let them refer me to dentist if need be, and the other said go straight to dentist. So I am going to do a walk-in to primary first today just to play it safe, just in case they decide to cover it, I don't want them saying "Well if you went to the primary first we would of covered, but since you didn't, we won't cover it" The dental part of Medical thinks I need to see the dentist, but won't tell me if it is covered or not, says it all just depends and I just have to go to the dentist and see what the dentist says about the situation before I will find out what I am going to have to pay. The other part of Medi-Cal that tells me if I have full coverage each month or partial, said to go to primary just to be safe, and they are saying the same, they don't know if it will be covered or not. So all I really know right now is that I need to get on antibiotics at least and I don't care if I get them from my dr or the dentist, lol. So have a great day and weekend. I will be sitting at the drs for hrs waiting for the nurse or a dr to see me probably. And then could just be sent home with nothing and told to go to the dentist. So I could end up at the dentist ofc today, this weekend or next week too.

Hi Ladies! Wow, Linda B. It sure doesn't sound too good to me to take that much meds. For one thing you have to look at the side effects of that! You take one thing for one condition and end up with a side effect and then have to take another for that and so on and so. That is exactly what happened to my parents as they got older, and my brother and sister went down that same path. I know when I first started having my IBS stuff my dr warned me not to go down the same path as my family or I would end up like them, and I am so glad I listened to him. He said if I started taking the stomach pills, fiber additives, immodium pills my body would forget how to function properly on it's own. And I would end up taking more and more of that stuff as I got older, as your body gets use to it and then you end up taking more to get the same effect, or switching to some thing else to try to get the same effect. And you just end up going in a vicious cycle of taking some thing to go and then some thing to stop and back and forth. He told me to eat oatmeal every day to try to keep regular and if I get diarrhea then add bananas, rice and toast. Or just try to eat some of all of that several times a week to try to stay regular and watch my stress and that is what I always do.
I am glad you are both feeling a little better. I wish you all the best always. Janette

I had a great day as well. Some issues this morning but it resolved itself without meds today. Dr told me to take up to 8 immodium a day plus stomach pills. Am I the only one who thinks this is wrong? Oh well. It was a good day. I even got a small walk in today and voted.

Glad you are feeling better too Linda.

Hope you and Janette have a great Friday. I am taking husband for small procedure on his back and pray he gets some relief. They are going to burn a nerve ending on his left side. It sounds aweful to me, but his pain is pretty intense now so I guess he is ready.

Take care ladies and hugs to all!!

Hope you are feeling better Linda. I too strangle on food. She will discuss treatment options for Barrett's Esophagus and an irregular Z line whatever that is. I too had a crazy morning but 3 immodiums and a gently later it did settle down finally.

Janette so glad you are having a good day. Once my tummy settled I took my Mother In Law to the craft store and we had a nice afternoon.

Here's hoping your Thursday is filled with good health, good food, and good company. Take care.

LindaB - when I had the endoscopy, last year, I learned that I also have a problem with my Esophagus. I have a difficult time eating. Many times I have to stop and wait as I chew very slowly. I get a pain in that area. I know it is tough. It does not affect my stomach, however.

Hi Janette thank you for the well wishes. So glad you are feeling better.

Linda my doctor did reply and basically thanked me for the update and she will discuss everything when I go in on the 27th about my Esophagus. Guess I have to deal with it.

I had a busy morning but my stomach finally settled down. Just went to get my new glasses ordered and well OUCH! Why are they so expensive when the insurance barely pays anything. I will be happy to get them though so I can see clearly again.

Hope everyone has a great day! Take care and sending hugs.

Linda

LindaB - I am so sorry that you had such a problem after the sandwich. I hope you feel better. Has your doctor gotten back in touch with you?

Woke up this morning with migraine and upset tummy. Lots of exercise running to the bathroom. Just emailed my gastroenterologist to let her know that a PB and J sandwich doubled me over within 10 minutes of eating, of course it always hits me that fast. Not feeling so good today. Hopefully will improve later.

Have a great day Janette and Linda.

Chat later.

I have been doing pretty well. Keeping up with the exercise and drinking more water than normal. No problems today.

I hope you all feel well this week.

Had a so so day but I made myself walk this afternoon. Knee is still an issue but I am trying to get at least 15 minute walks in.

Janette and Linda hope you have a wonderful week as well!! I hope our newest members will return as well and have a great day.

Walked my lab up and down my street for 15 minutes. Knee isn't happy but I feel good for doing it.

Linda I get nausea also off and on, I think maybe the ibs must get our stomach fluids wacked out. Today I ate a peanut butter and jelly sandwich and doubled over within 10 minutes. Then felt nausea. Think we need some divine intervention from above!!

Glad everyone is doing well today. Have a great Sunday and take care.

I woke up this morning with nausea again. I don't know why! I had a full blood test panel done on me recently. The only problem was pre diabetes. I don't think that would be the problem.

LindaB - happy to hear that the doctor thinks the problem is from the IBS and not a new problem.

So glad everything went well with your test Janette!

Linda glad you are feeling better

I am still having trouble focusing from dilation meds today. I always have a reaction to the meds. All went well, need new glasses but dr thinks my double vision was from being so run down from the IBSD. That was good to hear.

Have a great night and take care everyone!

Linda
