Glad to send the site along. Seems to have a lot of information.
Sue - I have a theory. You mentioned about getting a bad virus - I've noticed, with myself anyhow that when I've had something to cause an "attack" - which is the stomach cramping, diarrhea, etc. it will go for a certain period of time. I look at it like a sore that the scab has come off and it's irritated again and needs to "heal" over. But it's only temporary because something can cause the "scab" to fall off again and it starts all over again.
I definitely couldn't do the buttermilk in the morning. Even the thought.
Speaking of - does anyone ever notice just a taste of something you now it will bother you? I can tell many times.
I am like everyone else - going someplace I do not eat in the morning! Most mornings I don't anyhow. I know! I know! Everyone says breakfast is important!!
Not when you have our stomachs!! I'm better if I hold off until about 10:30 sometimes later!
If I'm hungry I have something very dry and very plain.
The other thing I've noticed, with IBS its as if I have an allergy. In the springtime I ALWAYS get the start of my "attacks" and it last for about 3 months. In my family we really don't talk about not feeling well but they even ask - "do you ever notice in spring you get sick and are that way for months?" Followed up with "you never get to do anything!!"
One thing for sure - I know where every rest room is and my purse is always stocked with whatever I may need when I do go out!!
Hope today is a good day for everyone. And Sue, I hope you are feeling good again soon!!
