hey kix, I don't want to be negative, and applaud you so much for trying so hard at school with this issue, but that is how my cd started, cons. then bouts of d, then bouts of c, finally huge fever 106, and then major obstruction. all within 2 months. by the way I was 20. I don't want to alarm you, but because you can eat that roughage is a plus in your favor, I use to give myself enema's to help. But your bowels can rely on enema's. so you don't want them to get lazy, I mean I was so yukky feeling from constip. that I was willing to try anything. Online might be your option, going to school is such a wonderful experience for you kids, meeting new college buds, they will be your friends for life. My daughter just grd. and she met friends that were so smart, so nice, and just so much into their edu. that it was great. Do you experience any pain when you eat ?
