Mary, I thought OMG this site saved my life and I want others to have hope that it's not all in there head and the suffering is real and dis-abeling. So I tell me stories in hopes that others will take the bits of what I say and go ?? HUMMMM? Maybe it will work for me.
The other day I was in a store and I could not find what I was looking for so I asked another customer if she saw any. Well no neither of us did and I went down the ile looking at something else. The that lady came back up to me and said I found it. Cool, then she asked me why I was wearing that band around my waste, so I told her about my surgery.
She too is suffering I found out through our half hr conversation. She said she also suffers with IBS, so I told her a lot of stuff and she wrote down my doc name and some tests for her to have done, and she said " this was ment to be, I was ment to meet you and you just gave me hope for this first time in years"
so I left there feeling great and I hope some of what I told her helps...
SnowyLynne- that is right....
