Do any of you ever have gas so bad that you feel like your insides are going to burst? Do you ever have to lay down on your stomach in order to pass the gas or put something on your stomach? Have you ever had to lie on a stool or press on your stomach in order to have a bowl movement. I have this all the time. I have never heard of anyone else having to do this and I feel really weird. Its like something is twisted or turned and it is completely trapped, but I have had all the medical tests that say its all "normal". Sometimes at work I will have to just push my stomach on the sink. I know this sounds insane. I drink a ton or water and I exercise, but sitting or standing doesn't help. I just don't get it. My coworker told me yesterday, he thought I just worried about
"it" too much and I don't have cancer, so I just needed to think about
something else. It's hard not to think about
your stomach when you are about
to explode! I don't want to hurt. (My husband called to check on me and he happened to hear me say I didn't feel well). I could just feel my coworders irritation at me and that is why he had the words of advice. How do you handle people that just don't get it. Unfortunately, we (normally a group of 5-6 at a time)work and travel together all the time and it's hard to put up a front. I have to in front of the customer, but I don't always feel like having going to dinner and I just want to go back to my hotel room and relax. I get accused of being unsocial or cranky. The last trip was especially awful as the new "leader" wanted 7:00 breakfast meetings. I informed her would just meet them at the customer site & I privately explained, but don't think I didn't hear about
it later. NO one wanted to go to the breakfast and nothing was discussed,but why was I allowed to get out of it and they weren't. Leader's need to take into consideraton that some people have health issues and just simply ask who wants to go to breakfast and not try and make a mandatory plan. Sorry to go on, I just wondered it how other people deal with all this.............................................. I have even had a coworker tell me if I hurt that bad, maybe I needed to look at my alternatives. Thank you - but I am very good at my job and I work alot of hours - Help.
