I need a little help/Duke & Bacon

Saturday, October 10, 2015

Happy Saturday morning. A cool breezy one here. In the high 40s doing chores, and that breeze was chilly. But got through it. I had a surprise for Duke this morning for his breakfast, I added a little bit of bacon fat to his food and OMG he was not into sharing that with no one, not even Merlin got any. I swear that his bowl is a millimeter thinner from all the licking. Guess I found a way to get him to eat. I have to admit, everything is better with bacon. lol

Well, the guys will be moving this afternoon, but I don't know how much I will be able to help, and feeling really like I am letting the guys down. But hubby understands. I have been having a problem with diarrhea lately, it seems like everyday in the afternoon I begin to get terrible gas, I mean the kind that could clear out a biker bar,and then the diarrhea starts, and I spend the next several hour close to the house, Have had a couple of accidents, and that is horrible. I don't know if I have IBS-D or what. So I am asking if any of you suffer from IBS-D would you let me know some of your symptoms, I have no clue what is going on, and with no Dr. I am buffled, and uncomfortable.

I didn't do any flower bed yesterday, but I did use the foam in a can to go around the big patio door in the living room to cut down on cold air getting in, and later when hubby gets a day off from harvest, like when it rains, we will put the plastic sheeting over that door and then I can bring in the house plants. That will take half a day to get them all in and situated, this spring my cousin was here and she helped me bring them out, now I am on my own.

Well, the morning has gotten away from me and I have not eaten breakfast so guess I will wait for dinner, really not hungry, so no problem. Just hoping if I don't eat maybe that will help with the other problem. lol Maybe I will try it.

You all have a GET day, I am not sure what mine will be. Linda

    I don't have IBS, so I can't help you much there. I hope it's just a stomach bug and not a chronic condition. Hang in there!

    Could be IBS, and if so probiotics and very simple eating may help. Aslso sound remarkably like my friend's response to gluten. Easy test is to eliminate gluten for a few days, see if symptoms go away. Then reintroduce gluten...

    Please be safe about what and when you eat and drink. I know you may not be hungry, but you should still choose to fuel His temple.

    You're so right, bacon will make ANYTHING TASTE GOOD!!!!! Bring on the bacon!

    My mom has been dealing with that issue off and on for about 3 weeks now. I had an issue last night and not feeling the best today. We don't know if it is something going around or IBS.
    Hope you feel better soon.

    Linda, I have IBS with bloating and the huge D. I've done tests and finally after being past from doctor to doctor, I decided to go to the GNC store. Now I know it cost a lot more. I paid $20 for a 2 year discount. I have found their probiotic with enzymes has stopped the big D. I did try Walmart but theirs content artificial sugars. I take it with my biggest meal of the day. I am unsure if you have a GNC near you or not! If you do, go talk to them. It took 2-3 weeks but now if I miss one or 2 days, like Thur I get the big D. They also said fish oil if that didn't help. They do have some with weight management. Now I am working on the bloating issue with a new vita pak that hopefully with help. Look into GNC and or probiotics. They may or may not help. That has helped me. It is worth the extra money!

    can cause havoc with your system.Do you have a drop in clinic where you can get some help?
