Today was busy but good. I went to Curves in the morning and also took a walk for an hour. Later went shopping for a few shirts and also out to dinner. I am really tired but enjoyed the day. No IBS since Monday night.

Hi Larissa! Nice to meet you and welcome!
I keep looking in the "introduce yourself" section, never thinking to go elsewhere. I guess I should be looking in other places too! emoticon

So glad you have gotten nice welcomes in the location you posted, I'm not surprised though, it's a very nice group of people here. All looking to give help, suggestions, advice, info or just chat when able.

Here's hoping your IBS doesn't give problems every day and this journey to a healthier you will be a successful one!

Glad you wrote!

I'm new, Beni! I made a post in the introduce yourself forum, called "I love IBS!". I've gotten a nice welcome there. I just found this, so I'm going to be posting here as well. Nice to meet you!

okay, so. I have a question. I get emails saying there is a new member in the IBS group. But I go to the "introduce yourself" section and there aren't any new people. Sometimes if I go to the "daily chat" section, here, I will see a new name or two. But the names on my email are not. Where are they? Any ideas?

Just wondering. Thanks!
Beni

I have chronic back/neck problems owing to multiple MVAs, none of which were my fault. I am now at a point where I have to exercise in water because of the instability in my back. I had my first one hour session last week and it went well. It was the aftermath that was interesting.
I was EXHAUSTED and I went to bed early. Sometime during the night, I broke out in a sweat and felt like I was ill. I was out of it until 6 pm the next day when I woke up in soaked night clothes and a soaked bed but I felt fine.
When I spoke with my physio, he said it was my sympathetic system reacting to my lack of exercising. I was scheduled for a session today but my IBS-D flared up so I moved the appt forward a couple of days hoping I can get my system calmed down.
Recommend that one keeps exercising no matter what. Beni's mom has the right attitude!!!

Slow and steady wins the race.

Thanks Beni,
So so true, if we just do 10 mins a few times a day.....but you know.....we don't have 10 mins.LOL
I do need to do the exercises my chiro told me to do years ago. It's just weird how things flare up together and you are not sure if that's what it really is.
my ibs is so "irratic" as I guess that's what ibs is all about. so Iam never sure of what it is when I have pain.
Exercise EVERYONE!!! get off the computer and exercise! :)
thanks again and a big KUDOS to your mom!!!! that is awesome!!!
take care, Sue

Hi Sue,
My mother had two back operations 38 years ago. For 38 years she has done back exercises - let me tell you, she is now 78. She can sit in a chair and pull her knees up to her ears! She does everything with no problems at all and 2 discs removed! She says she wouldn't be like that if she didn't do the exercises. She does them no matter if she is on vacation staying at a friends house or hotel. She says if her back starts to ache she gets back on her bed and does them again. She swears by it. She moves better than I do!
Maybe look into doing exercises to see if it will help?
Exercises are so good for us and we feel good doing them - why is it so difficult to make ourselves do them? Grrr.....

I'll drink to that! lol Seems I just have to look at a cake Iam decorating and it jumps on my hips!!! UGH.....this over 40 is really creeping up on me:(
anyone have suggestions for back and abdominal pains. I feel good for a while when I get up in the morning but then it starts. I haven't had much of an appetite either.
Iam trying the heating pad, it does seem to help some.

Good job Linda - but never say "only" one pound. Lift something that's one pound. That is nothing small!! Be proud of every one of them!!!

Love Love Love walking on the beach. You seem to forget everything and just relax.

It was a good day. Hubby and I took a 50 minute walk along the beach. I have been eating less this week and can really tell it. I have only lost 1 pound since the first of January but have lost 2 inches on my thighs.

Thank you for your help. I was careful with my diet and it eased up. Surprised me, usually hangs on longer than that. I am not going out of town to see a GI dr for symptoms that come and go. Yes, it's miserable and intense while it lasts but I went 9 months between flares. It would cost me a lot to keep doctoring out of town. So for now I'm watching my diet and exercise and praying it doesn't recur. Thanks again!

Would be a good idea to have a colonoscopy just to make sure no poylps are there.
I was at a point where the only thing I could tolerate was lemon slushes. They found out I have collagenous colitis. I was on a certain steroid for a couple of weeks. I have good days, bad days. The bloating really bother me. Nothing really more the doctors can do. Stress has a lot to do with it.

Take care and keep us informed.

Well, yeah, but I can have that done here and already have. Of course, nothing showed up. I just need help for the pain. Not sure it's worth driving out of town and racking up more bills.

The specialist can do the testing, such as a colonoscopy. That is the reason I would suggest it.

not sure where to post this question, but for those of you who see a GI specialist, would you say it has helped you? My general practioner wants me to see a specialist but he's 90 minutes away and it would cost me in lost wages, travel and more doctor bills. Haven't pursued it because I was under the impression there isn't really anything they can do for IBS anyway. Or is that a negative view? I am so tired of the pain and bloating! Thanks for any responses.

I have been flat on my back for 2 days owing to back pain from an earlier MVA and depression. Realized an hour ago that I had messed the bed sometime in the last 8 hours. Fecal matter had come out when I was asleep. Just want to curl up and die.

Slow and steady wins the race.

Beni - thanks for asking. Yes, DD2 is doing better. She is a bundle of emotions (takes after me) so everytime she is upset....she makes it worse by worrying about it. I am so sorry that she took after me in that area.

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone. I hope you all enjoy your day with friends, family or whoever you choose. Just remember this is only one day. If you overindulge you can get right back on track, Friday. I went walking with hubby today for over an hour. We will do the same tomorrow. I know we are burning calories and helping our health.

Have a great day.

Hi Sue,
I'm beginning to wonder if food causes the problem or it's just our stomachs. Yes we know there are certain trigger foods but like you said spaghetti should not have flared it up. Spaghetti doesn't bother me either. As mentioned earlier I think it's our stomachs. I can have a salad and be fine then all of a sudden one day have a salad and I'm so sick. One thing I notice is certain times of the year it's always bad as if it were an allergy. I wonder if we'll ever know. It makes it difficult for going places. We're invited to a Christmas party - I can't have alcohol because I have restless leg syndrome and alcohol REALLY bothers it, the food I'm not sure what they'll have - so it's a wait and see. I make sure to keep crackers in the car - they are always good in case of emergencies and if the stomach is bothering.
Oh and I ALWAYS carry my prescription, tums and pepto.
Wow - I am quite the party girl aren't I?
Hope you are doing better. Be careful, as you know, once a flare up seems anything can bother it until it calms back down.
Happy Thanksgiving to you as well!!
Beni

I'm the same as you Beni. If I have an appointment in the morning or have some errands to do I can't eat breakfast due to my IBS-D. I had spaghetti with meat sauce for lunch today and had to run to the washroom with D...spaghetti should not have flared that up...just lost at trying to understand what/why this is going on.

Hope that all is well with you Linda.

Happy Thanksgiving!

I think so. Because of a sensitive stomach I usually can't have breakfast until late if at all. I had a lot of running around getting groceries for Thanksgiving and ingredients for cookies to make for Christmas. I got home very late, so without eating all day I was hungry and grabbed a handful of pistachios. I think they were just way too hard on an empty stomach. I can normally have "some" but think I had too many along with not having anything else caused the flare up .
I should know better. I do know better. It was plain dumb. Never grab and eat - for any reason especially with our bad stomachs. A HUGE lesson learned.
Now I'm on sensitive alert. You know where once you have a flare up ANYTHING can upset it? Sheesh!
Whats the old saying? Un get too smart too late?
Definitely!!
Thanks Linda!!
How are you doing? Hope you caught up on sleep and DD2 is okay!!

Good morning. I was awakened in the middle of the night by DD2 who was upset about a problem. I always take her call and talk no matter what time of night. But I am sleepy this morning. I am going to go to Curves and probably to the store on the way home. Plan to have a good day!

Flew into Koh Samui, Thailand on Sunday and we're just about all settled in our rented villa.

Just trying to catch up to some of the posts.

CONGRATULATIONS Beni..awesome accomplisment...keep up the good work!

It's been a real roller coaster with my IBS-D but I'm still working on trying to keep it under control...as we all know...easier said than done! Eating rice seems to help me so I want to stick to Chicken Fried Rice everyday :)

Thailand doesn't celebrate Thanksgiving but we're still very thankful for all that we have.

Enjoy, Happy Thanksgiving!

Can you say envious? I sure can! LOL! Jeez not only will you be out alone just the two of you but you are in warm sunny Florida. Sigh...

Really though, have a wonderful Thanksgiving! And when you gaze into each other's eyes just remember good old Beni who will be sitting at the table grabbing for that wish bone! emoticon

I normally don't have artificial sweetner. I had some last night and paying for it today with D. ugh!

Ebonysol - ugh! Even if we are alone gas is so irritating.

Beni - congrats! That is wonderful news.

Hello friends!
I have to share my good news! I am out of the 300's today! Never to be seen again.
I know I have a way to go but that's just it, I'm on my way! I am so looking forward to this journey because along with weight loss I am feeling better and having fewer attacks. I still get them but not like I used to.

It is a good day today!
Beni

Had Chinese take out at a restaurant that normally doesn't trigger my IBS. Well my reaction wasn't drastic if farting the rest of the evening doesn't bother a person. Good thing I was home alone.

Slow and steady wins the race.

Today was a good day. I did get a lot of exercise in. I went to Curves this morning and later walked 60 minutes. It seems that whenever I do put in a lot of exercise, I do not get around to doing much around the house. I am ready to get back on schedule tomorrow.

Hope all of you are doing well after Hurricane Sandy.

I have had a pretty good day. I did some housecleaning, took a walk and also went out for a late lunch with hubby. So far my IBS is under control.

Happy Monday. It has been a busy day for me. I went grocery shopping and also bought a new mop today. I plan to work on the bathroom floors first. They really need it. I went walking later. Also did a water aerobics class which was a lot of fun. It's a beautiful day.
