Hey everyone hope you all are well me not so great I'm literally fasting at this very moment till I'm able to go get some food.Last night was the worst had the worst bout of the dreaded D got through it,I did not want to eat anything else till today.The hunger pains started kicking in I could have gone to the supermarket last night but it was to late by the time I thought of it.So I could not take it anymore I really had nothing in my fridge or cabinets just ate some Twix then went to bed stopped the hunger pains for the night sort of.Now I'm siting here starving for food I really need to go to Whole foods but not sure if I'll be able to make it out there since it's far from where I live.At Whole foods there are foods there I need to get that will agree with me,going to a regular supermarket I have few choices I can pick from.I wont have the energy to ride my bike all the way out to Whole foods so I have to go to Shaws and struggle with what I'll need to buy that will agree with me.It's a lose lose situation but I need to get going and get some food in me,oh before I go I have a so called friend who only calls me when thier going through some things and they always bring to my attention my having IBS like I need to be reminde of how miserable I feel.Asking me questions about my IBS that I dont feel like answering saying your pretty skinny cause you dont eat much and stuff like that ***** I dont need your input I know I'm ****ing skinny and I eat the way I need cause I have too not cause I want to.He just made me so ****ing mad making me feel worse about having IBS,knowing I pretty much stick to myself asking me if I'm going to any bbqs ***** what would I be doing at a bbq what the **** would I eat.Just erked me like something serious but anyways all hope you all have a great 4th sending all my love. xoxoxo :-)

I too spent the 4th by myself...Getting invited to a BBQ is depressing as I know I cant eat anything they have.  I too have lost so much weight from not eating, thats all I ever hear is how skinny I am and that I look too thin.  Well I love to eat and sometimes I break down and cry because I am so hungry and mad that I cant eat.  I have lost 90 lbs and cant really afford to lose any more but I am sure it will happen.  Everything I try does not seem to work, so I am totally depressed....hope that you are having a better day than I... nono

I'm sorry to hear what your going through Leslie I too wish I could eat like I really want to eat.My body craves foods I used to eat like the foods that are bad for you like the greasy and fatty foods.I can not really digest those foods anymore so I got to stick to my veggies and fish and chicken so it's really hard for me to put on weight I cant eat eggs either.I have not tried eating them boiled though I feel sometimes I eat the foods I need to eat to keep my symptoms from acting up.I crave sweets a lot also I got to purchase an IBS recipe book for more tastey foods I can have.This IBS food diet I'm on is soooo bland you know after you eat something while your eating eat it's statisfying your hunger.I dont feel that way when I'm eating those foods cause I eat them everyday I tried to switch it up by having bbq chicken but the sauce was to sweet and loaded with sugar I guess I could not digest properly.I eat those foods to have formed stools and less frequent trips to the bathroom.Other then that I'm staying strong as I should and just not letting this all break me down,cause I used to love food I was a foody and now food sometimes is scary to me cause I'm always wondering while I'm eating what will this do to me.I'm twenty-nine but really do not look my age I look younger thank God for that but I have a body of a teenager I know when people look at my body they emidiately consider me to be 18 or 19yrs old.I hate the way my body looks I'm trying everything I can to try to put on some weight my nutritionist told me I need to eat more but how can I when my stomach hurts from having three square meals a day.I just cope well stay strong Leslie and keep coming here for advice and support take care. :-)

JT80 , gosh you are so young to be dealing with this...I too crave sugar, don't really know why but I do.  I cant eat fiber, ie vegies, fruit, cant take fiber pills or nothing.  If I stick to a dry potato, baked chicken, or chicken noodle soup,  I dont get bloated or have pain but it leaves me starving...  So like today I ate and now I am like 9 mos. pregnant and in so much pain.  My IBS causes air in my intestines so my bowels will not move unless I do the enema thing to get the air out first and then everything comes out.  My doc is trying to figure out what the heck is going on.  I have tried everything for the IBS, and I am lactose intollerent too.  Cant eat eggs or fish either so not much I can eat....  I live in Oregon and its a small town so there is not much help available on my kind of insurance.  Some people think oh its IBS so its ok....well no it is not, because they do not even have a clue what we go through.   I have been terribly ill since April when I had the Acute attack and was hospitalized then and then a couple of weeks ago.
 
I always try and think of other people that have it worse than I do with cancer or something like that so I try to feel lucky that I am not dealing with that.  But I cant help but feel cheated that I am missing out on life so much.  My grandson wants to know why Nanna is always so sick, and that bothers me alot.  I have had IBS since 93 and it was not so bad in the eairly years but this year is the killer....  Its so bad that I try to sleep as long as I can at night and find myself not wanting to get up in the morning because I know that I will be sick and dont want to deal with it.
I wish that I had some good words of encouragement for but words seem to fail me.
I hope that in the future they will find something that works for us, and simple pill would be great....ha ha.
Just try and find good in all you do and the people you deal with...simple pleasures are the best... feel better my friend and all my prayers are with you....Leslie turn

Well I hope this note finds you feeling better....Leslie

Honestwoman, what did you do that caused you to feel so good for six days in a row? You probably mentioned it, but I must have missed it.

IBSGOAWAY,  You know I honestly don't know.  I did start eating little bits of food all day long, just a few bites.  I quit taking my multivitiam and calcium and I am trying to exercise more.
I stay away from butter and fats and acids and fruit and most vegies as they cause me problems.
I have had IBS for years but untill I ended up in the hospital in April with a acute attack of I was not as sick.  But since my hospitalization I have been horribly ill, nausiated and in pain and all the bloating that lasted forever and would not go away.  So I am not sure if it just ran its course or what the heck is going on.
So I hope it stays this way but don't know will have to take it one day at a time.
How are you doing?
 
Leslie

Yesterday I had a pretty good day, which is weird because I had "normal" food for lunch and dinner. I had a turkey dinner for lunch, which caused me to have a normal bm which made me feel good for pretty much the rest fo the day. So today I was stupid and woke up and had a bowl of cereal with actual milk on it. I have this feeling I'm going to regret doing that. I haven't felt normal all morning.

I'm sorry you got so sick...but hopefully you are doing better now. I hardly got any sleep the night before my good day so I figured I would be tired and crabby the whole day. On the contrary, I felt awesome the whole day. I can't believe how much my mood revolves around whether or not my stomach is acting friendly towards me. It is just absolutely crazy!

Wishing you good tummy health!

IBSGOAWAY,  you know when I have turkey with gravy on it for some reason it does not bother me like the other grease.  I have to stay away from dairy though because I am allergic and it always makes my IBS worse.  It seems to stay in the intestines for a long time too.  Glad to hear that you had a better day, keep it up.  I feel good again so far today, but I just got up because I have been plagued with migraines for 3 days and they really hurt but I can handle just about anything as along as my guts are kind to me, if you know what I mean.
 
So my thoughts and prayers are with you and all the other suffering in this world.  Oh almost forgot, I don't know if you have ever experienced this but ready made meals like Lean Quzine spaghitti are killers for me so I can never eat any of that stuff.
 
Hope you have a wonderful day..
