Hi everyone!!!! I hope you all are doing well,myself I'm doing great but could be greater lol I thank God like I've said that I'm able to eat what I want again.Eating foods I was scared to eat without having diahrrea right after,I'm even putting on a few pounds which I am so happy for.The weight though is mostly going to my stomach and butt lol got to start doing situps lol.By wanting things to get better I want to figure out a way of eating something like after having luch or dinner to be able to feel comfortable to go out somewhere.The urgency situation too is still a problem when I feel the urge to go move my bms I gots to go!!! lol.Along with that is flatulence that I cant control it's like the stool is making it's way out of me and along the way I get gas.I hate this feeling with a passion yes gas is a normal thing but com an!! lol seriously.These are the reasons I isolate myself and I get anxiety I hate that I have no control over what my body is doing.I want to get back out there!!!! live my life but I know I need to set small goals but I'm ready also to start doing things I have not done in years like go to see a movie,ride public transportation instead of walking every where.Being able to go somewhere and sit on my butt without having the sudden urge to move more of my bms.
 
I'm staying strong and praying as always I'm tired of staying at home a lot I want to be able to interact wtih others with no fear of my symptoms.I hate that my body only feels like letting out what bms it feels like letting out lol.Can I not just sit on the toilet and let out what needs to come out to be ok for the rest of the day.To be able to enjoy the day with no worry of having to move more of my bms.I just want to have my morning bms and be done with it till I get back home not while I'm out running errands or enjoying someone's company lol.I have faith things are going to get even better like I've also said this will not be ruled by IBS in my thirties my thirties are going to be off the chain by me doing great fun things.I'm tired of being alone and scared over what my body does something natural that everyone does lol.I got to look on the bright side I'm enjoying eating what I desire to eat again!!!!,having ice cream again with no problems,brownies mmm yum!!!!,cupcakes mmm yum lol,and eggs and pancakes,french toast I savor those foods everytime I have them lol.I'm still on my IBS diet of foods I need to have no diharrea!!!! thank the Lord!!!!.I'm able to stuff myself till I feel full without feeling that cramping urge of diharrea about to happen.
 
Anyways I hope some of you are feeling better and staying strong wishing you as always the best stomach and digestive health.Keep me in your prayers and I will do the same for you have a nice day take care and God bless!!!! :-) smilewinkgrin

JT, good attitude!

One thing to note is anxiety and fear trigger d and pain and that process can be understood better and worked on naturally.

Ever heard of the fight or flight responce?

The Science of Anxiety

Why do we worry ourselves sick? Because the brain is hardwired for fear, and sometimes it short-circuits

This is really important in IBS.

I just stopped taking that dam medicatin Amitiza that was the cause of most of my problems it was giving me the side effect diharrea.While on it,it was not allowing anything I ate to digest or stay in my system long enough for my body to get nurishment.Realalizing that it was causing me that bad side effect I went off it and been able to eat whatever I desire again without the dreaded D happening after I've eaten something.I do pay for what I eat when I'm ready to have a bm if it's something that had no fiber in it.I dont mind that so much and I've found out  I'm not lactose intolerant after all it was the med Amitiza that was not allowing anything I ate to diegest properly most of the time I dont need to take a digestive enzyme before eating something and that is such great news.So if there is anyone on Amitiza and your having diharrea all the time get off it and sees what happens.I'm mad that I was on it for all these years without knowing really what was the main cause thinking it was my body that changed rejecting anything I ate.I wish I could sue the makers of Amitiza for all the agony they had me go through I bet so many other people was going through the same situations.
 
Well honestwoman I wish luck and the best with what your about to go through I pray you find your peace too.Keep me updated I'll keep you in my prayers things are going to get better for you dont give up!!!!!
