I am sorry to hear you aren't feeling well...I have IBS and I can totally relate to how you feel about your children. I have a 2 year old little girl and she does the same things you described. She always sees me sick and upset about being sick...she tries to take care of me! tells me its okay and not to be sad. I had a bit of a meltdown this morning about this. Mornings always seem to be worst for me. Lexie has ballet on sat mornings and today, I was sick to my stomach. The hemis came out and were bleeding (another effect of the IBS for me) I tried to get her to ballet but got half way down the road before felling sick again. I turned the car around to go back to the house and when I stopped, I turned around to look at her. She was pouting..I think the bottom lip was up to her little nose and there were tears running down her face. She said "Mommy, I don't want to go home, I want to go to ballet class" It absolutely broke my heart! This is such an unfair thing to go through but everyone around you goes through it too! I cannot travel with my husband or go on shoppping trips with my mom. Today, it is 62 degrees here in the northeast..perfect for going to the pumpkin patch but I can't and so my precious little girl suffers with me. I truly feel like I am going to lose my mind!! I was prescribed Zoloft during the week to help with my anxiety over leaving the house....I think worrying about have an episode with from the IBS while out, causes me to have one. I usually get sick right before I have to be somewhere. I haven't started the Zoloft yet but I m praying that it will help some. I will let you know.
Sorry I can't be of much help. I just wanted you to know that you're not alone! Feel better soon
