Me too hukleberie - I would like to ignore but learned my lesson. Many doctors told me my diarrhea, pain, iritis, and weight loss was due to spastic colon. IBS, or that I was a stressed out mother. After 10 years of trying to discuss my problem, I gave up and tird my best to ignore the symptoms as best I could. This went on for 15 years and I am paying the price. I have lots of damage from not getting treatment.
That said, I still try to wait some things out hoping they will go away on their own. I can get on the boat going down the river De Nile with the best of 'em. Usually I come to my senses, suck it up, and get myself to the doctor.
