For me its worse in the mornings. It's probably the times that you eat your meals when it gets worse. Try to eat smaller portions throughout the day.

The thing that threw me Saturday was no movement at all. We went into the city, luckily we parked at the building where my husband works so knew where to access a toilet, I'm hunting down silk fabrics for my art work but all the time at the back of my mind I'm wondering why I've had no bowel movement that day.
It was rather distracting I could sense my anxiety building, have I got a blockage, will I go off with a bang!!!.............................I went the whole day, nothing, the following day still nothing, I used a fleet supository, success, now I'm back to my usual pattern. It was such an assault on all my senses, the pace of the city, I was exhausted that evening, I guess I'm just a country girl at heart, at least peaceful country living makes coping with this disease easier for me.

I'm with you Tess. I'm a country girl too. I wouldn't even go into the city for something like that! You are brave or dedicated. I live where there are mostly almond trees, cows and horses. Early moroning is my favorite time to go to the stables and visit my horse's. What kind of art work do you do?
