This morning I woke up feeling absolutely horrible, had to use the restroom several times or every time I moved it felt like, and couldn't get anything down except for the first ensure I've been desperate enough to drink in a long time.
Even better is that I had work at a new job an hour after I woke up. You don't sit down, you don't get to run to the bathroom whenever you need to, and there is ALWAYS something to be done.
I don't know what happened afterward. I worked almost ten hours today, no BM's, and I didn't pass out from lack of energy.
I don't know where it came from, but I'm really glad I made it through...It was a complete 180 from how I felt this morning. I'm still afraid that things might be trying to flare up so I'm going to need to be more careful..but at least I know the ability to do it is there.
Anyway, just wanted to share. Am hoping maybe other people have good stories to give as well?
