Okay, not to be graphic, but after constant diarrhea since March 15th this year, I THINK I had a normal BM today! The only wierd thing is that it was soft, large, and long, in volume, but definetly formed. (Sorry to be grose again!) Is that normal?? I forgot what "normal" is. Maybe somebody can help me out. I don't want to be all excited over nothing.
I think that this so called "IBS-D" may be stress induced. Recently married, moved to a new town, job is hectic, trying to sell our house, etc. I'm thinking it's the culprit, but who knows why anybody has to live and deal with this AWFUL syndrome. You think you're dying because you can't figure out why you're running to the bathroom 10 times a day with diarrhea, everyday. I thought I had IBD, chrones, celiac, cancer...you name it, I thought I had it. For anybody who has this problem - HANG IN THERE!! Believe that it will get better, trust your Doctors, and look here at healingwell for help. (It has helped me so much and THANK YOU for the support and encouragement.)
I have gained about 8 pounds back since July (yea for me!) My hair is still falling out, but I think it is slowing down a bit. I have new hair growning in it's place. It may take a year to look like it used to, but it's only hair. It will grow back.
Again, thanks and if you can fill me on the scoop of normal BM's, I'm all ears.
