Pretty much y'all are the only people who would understand how awesome this is, but I have had normal stools for the past 3 days in a row, one each morning. I even ate out one night (and things that I probably shouldn't have) and didn't have that many problems - a little gas, but not severe, and I never felt nauseated! My tummy's been doing quite well this week, and it makes me very happy :)

Yay!!! Lets hope it stays that way.
I noticed that I can have a few straight days of normalcy if I keep up the probiotics... at least 2 supplements a day.

Once, during the middle of one of my bowel problems, I realized that I must look just like a dog, who poops, then turns around to examine it. Now we know why they do it. It's important to make sure it looks normal. I'm glad yours are looking normal.

Haha, you are so right. Once, when I was explaining to one of my friends who's in nursing school with me what was going on, and how I was having mucus in my stools, she gave me a strange look and said "I don't think I'd even notice." And I thought to myself, "Oh, you would be surprised at what you notice about the oddest things..." People who are normal all the time just do NOT get it. When a stomach bug was going around (that thank God I didn't get...), another friend was complaining about really bad gas pains that went along with it. And she said "It was so weird, I had these gas pains, and they HURT. Like, it was painful..." And once again, I had to hold myself back from saying, "Oh, if you only knew - I experience that every day."

Illness of any kind really makes you appreciate normalcy, and the parts of your body that DO work right. You don't notice it, I don't think, until something actually DOESN'T work, and then it's like, well, at least my hormones are still in check, or at least I can still walk, or I can breathe and my heart is in good shape. It's a humbling thing.
