That is odd and very strange canyonbabe! Well, let's just chalk it up some random computer glitch.....the main thing is lend help and support to one another. Because let's face it - people without IBS issues just do not understand. Even those without that try to understand, cannot possibly understand what we all go thru (from C to D, to all degrees in between).
I can't imagine what I would have done years ago if not for the internet. If I hadn't found a colon cancer message board 9 years ago, I wouldn't have read that a low residue diet often helps with IBS/D symptoms. And from there I began reading even more articles, links, websites to gather more info. I've checked just a few books out from our library but they haven't been very helpful. What I find the most helpful is communicating with patients with IBS, whether their symptoms are exactly like mine or not. Just knowing others struggle too, even though I wish they didn't have to, just helps me feel less alone.
