For all you IBS-Ders out there...

What on earth would you do if you weren't in the bathroom all the time?  If you had that extra 1, 2, 3, 10 hours a day of freedom from your throne?  I want to hear some fun answers.

I would eat all the junk food I could and take a road trip. My first stop along the way would be KFC for a big bucket of crispy chicken and then Arby's for a barrel of curly fries. Mmmmm.....

Oh that sounds awesome...

I'd eat a big bucket of buttered popcorn and sit tight through a whole movie.

I'd go on hikes without a roll of TP.

I'd study for my Medical College Admissions Test without breaking down in the middle of my study sessions in frustration!

Eat CHEESE!!! (oh, how I miss it)... I would also eat all the comfort foods that I grew up eating (sauces, cheese, pasta) Oh gosh, I'm punishing myself (sniff).

Ya'll are just plain cruel....lol.

I stopped eating fried foods and this sure did help me with the IBS. If I was to eat a peice of fried chicken I would be doubled over with pain!. Get this...one day I was doubled over in pain and had to stop the car on a busy freeway, lay my stomach over the side of the seat, just to keep my stomach from exploding!...or it felt like that...LOL. That taught me a HUGE lesson!.

Yes, it all boils down to is the pain worth the pleasure??? For me, sometimes it is. I will cheat every once in awhile but I know that I will pay for it. I never cheat on a weekday though, my body causes me enough problems without my doing that I would never feel right about missing work or something because of something I caused and knew the consequences. (off the soapbox ;) Sometimes I can't help myself LOL.

I'd be my happy, fun-loving, free-spirited self again, doing things on the spur of the moment, and actually doing things, rather then wait for each moment that I had to go use the toilet...I swear, work-aholics probably don't put in as much time as us sickos do!!!  :)

So everyone is a fan of KFC?

I would eat all the spicy mexican, chinese, junk food I could lay my hands on and get down my throat!

KFC is pretty good--but I have been less a fan since they changed their mashed potatoes and gravy recipe. That was always my favorite part! My grandmother, though, makes the best fried chicken. She fries it up in an old cast iron skillet so it's not exposed to as much oil as deep fried chicken and when she gets it out of the pan, she pats it dry with a thick paper towel. Almost no grease at all on it that way. And it's well fried, even though it's always skinless. In fact, I had some weekend-before-last and it never bothered me a bit. Even had some of her mashed potatoes and a bit of biscuit gravy. You know, me or my fiance one should probably learn her technique, because when she's gone, I'll not have access to such perfect fried chicken again. Much less fried chicken that doesn't bother me.

Hi,
 
I would love to train and run the Bay to Breakers marathon.  I have always wanted to do it, but fear of an attack has prevented me from actually doing it.  Also, I don't think I could run/walk that far.  I heard it's quite a challenge.  At times, when I feel ambitious, I usually run around my neighborhood.
 
Having IBS has really stopped me from enjoying things I use to.  I'm afraid of being in crowds, attending concerts, parades, etc.  I can't even feel comfortable in places like Starbucks, because if there's only one toilet, I fear that someone will be knocking on that door. 
 
Let me share a horrible experience I had at Starbucks.  I was shopping with a friend one day, when I suddenly felt pain.  I rushed to Starbucks and had a horrible attack of Diarrhea.  Unfortunately, after I was done I discovered that the toilet wouldn't flush!!!!!!!!!!  Thinking I could somehow sneak out of the restroom, I opened the door.  Guess who was on the way in?  An extremely attractive, well dressed person smiled at me and was on the way in.  Without turning back, I practically ran out of the store!!!  I was so embarrassed, I couldn't even go back to that Starbucks again...ever.

That's when you stop the person from entering and say, "Ugh, the toilet's not working; it looks like it's been backed up for a while." Or something of that nature so you imply it's not YOU who backed it up. You can even appear brave that by saying you tried to flush it so you could use it, but to no avail. Just stand up straight and don't look or feel guilty. Kind of like blaming your farts on the dog, lol.

Keriamon,

Good one!!  Boy, you must've had practice in this area...

I just felt that because I was in there so long, everyone there must've suspected it was me.  If only I had the guts to do what you said..

I would certainly sleep anytime anywhere and stay asleep till I was ready to get up. Hearty breakfast of waffles butter syrup eggs bacon and sooooooo much coffee. I live in Colorado so a nice brisk walk in the foothills to walk off some of the breakfast. I'd take candy bars with me to much along my walk for "energy". Actually I'd fill my backpack with Lindor Dark Chocolate truffles and fill my Camelback with frosty Coca-Cola. I'd eat ALL of it. For lunch, beautiful sparkly martinis with spicy exotic foods, and always always always have dessert. Maybe first! Then on that full stomach I'd take a little nap (the absolute kiss of death is for me to lay down on a full stomach) wake up refreshed. about now I'd go into my bathroom, which I would hardly be familiar with (I see faces now in the bathroom rug) and within 10 minutes have eliminated everything. Feeling light, I would float out the door, and maybe go to the gym, pick up heavy things, or put in the flagstone that's waiting out there, walk my girl dogs, see a friend, maybe even meet someone for cocktails, or ride a bike, you know, something that takes you away from the sanctuary of your own bathroom!!!!!! Later on, I'd pick up soooo much stuff from KFC (strange connection between "us" and KFC), eat some in the car on the way home, and then sit my butt in front of the TV and eat all of it...with beer...more dessert. Finally, to bed where I make love to my sweetheart all night long. Fall asleep and not wake up until morning!

You know generally I don't miss a lot, it's strange.  HOWEVER, that being said :)  I can't stop thinking about those Arby's curly fries!  7lil, how did you know?  I salivate each time i pass the Arby's at the food court with my plain white rice.  Other than that, I would run again.  This is when the whole blessed thing happened.  i was in the middle of my Sunday run, which I did all year 'round regardless of weather conditions.  I loved running-and was a devoted runner.  It was the Sunday after Thanksgiving when suddenly in the middle of the whole thing, I was hit with this strange nausea.  I thought it was strange but finished the run.  Then the D began and the nausea got worse, etc. etc. That was the whole beginning. So for awhile as I began to get a little better, I was terrified to run.  Well, 2+ years later- when a lot of other things have improved (and I'm very grateful for that), I still can't run.  I have returned to kickboxing, step aerobics, and weights
 (again, very thankful here- no complaints) but cannot run. I dream of running again- I still read the magazines, etc.  Hey, if it doesn't happen, it is what it is.  I'll be fine.  I hope you all get to rediscover your missed passions!
