Well, I spent the last 2 weeks on the lake with my husband daughter and 2 granddaughters. Had a wonderful time felt good and only a little discomfort or D. Today I'm up getting ready for a day at the lake with just my husband and darn pain hits. I am seriously wondering if it was a partial steak I ate Fri night (had been wanting one for awhile so hubby took me out for one). Kinda been having issues every since. I felt so bad, telling him I was in pain this morning and he said don't worry about it I've gone alone before and there is no need for you to go if your feeling bad already you won't enjoy yourself and riding the jet ski could make it worse. I feel like crying!!!!! So here I sit alone cramping just waiting on it to hit, I can feel it coming and hubby went to the lake. Don't get me wrong I wouldn't have wanted him to stay home just because I feel bad I can do that just fine by myself. He told me to lounge by the pool, call and have my daughter bring the girls over (I don't think so to the daughter thing).
For now I think I'll go lay down see if I can get some relief stretching out and wait.  Just needed to tell someone how I was feeling. The last couple of weeks spoiled me I guess! It might be that worrying about my TX license is causing this too. My finger prints have characteristic faults (due to age) so they have to run them again and then my name if the second bunch show the same thing. Well my temporary license expired on 9/5/07 so I'm not able to visit pts. or basically do my job at this point. I used last week to play catch up and make sure everything was in order but it is putting a burden on the nurses I work with covering my pts and they are going into overtime which bothers my boss and I don't know how long this whole process is going to take so I'm worried about loosing my job if it don't happen soon. I'm going to volunteer to take this week off until it hopefully comes in, I worked enough last week to cover my insurance and that is all I'm really worried about at this point. So as I rant and rave you can probably tell I'm a little lol stressed. I know it will all work out the way it is suppose too but that doesn't stop me from worrying. This was originally going to be a short post about not going to the lake but I guess I needed to get it all off my chest, I've been trying to stay positive which has been working for the most part but as you can see it is getting to me now. Thanks for being here to let me vent!!!!!

I stop eating meat al long time ago cause it was so hard to digest and got "stuck" and very painful. I dont even miss it now and gag just looking at it. DH gave it up too so its easy not having it in the house.
Try walking around it makes the bowels work the more you sit the longer it takes to come out.

Hi Nana CC sorry you are feeling so bad, when you should be out having a goodtime. I know I cannot eat red meat anymore, everytime I do I wind up in the same situation you are in. I only eat chicken, fish and turkey now. I sure do miss my hamburgers and steak, but the pain just isn't worth it anymore. Hope things pass quickly. God Bless!
