I was thinking about this tonight, eating dinner and then heading off to sit on the throne, then again just before I hopped in the shower, then being interrupted in my shower to take my righteous place on the throne yet again...even though I am "only" having 5-6 bouts of diarrhea per day (in contrast to before, when it was 10, 15, upwards of that), I still notice I am invariably lightheaded upon standing, that my heart is working harder, that I am never without a reminder that whatever this is...will be with me for a while.
I wonder after dealing with diarrhea for so many years, where is our new set point? If I tell the doctor I still have diarrhea 5-6 times a day, but I'm feeling okay about that, he'll look at me like I have two heads. SHOULD I be okay with that many? What is an acceptable range?
I implore you to share your thoughts on the matter...where is that magical point that we should be aiming for? Even if it's just a range...
