I'm at my fiancee's house for about four days (it's our spring break!), and we're doing a lot of wedding-type events. Last night we had a cookout/shower given to us, and there was no chicken in sight. The only things to eat were hamburgers and hot dogs. I had anticipated this, and took 2 of my enzyme capsules before we left, and I was feeling really good yesterday, so I thought why not. If I hurt, I hurt, and I haven't had a hamburger in three freaking months. So i had a hambuger AND a hot dog. And we stayed until like 10, and then came home and I went to bed, and had NO problems. At all! You have to understand that I haven't had red meat since January, because it's one of my main triggers, and I have been craving it so bad - that hamburger tasted amazing. This morning I'm a tad bit gassy, but nothing I'm not used to anyway, and I am just SO excited. I was really worried about how miserable all this shower stuff would make me, and I'm just praying that my enzymes will get me through the next week with all the non-IBS friendly food. So we'll see how that goes. And it's not like I'm going to go crazy and eat McDonald's every day (ewww) or anything, but it is nice to know that I can get through a trigger or two with some good enzymes :) (Plus, it makes all this wedding stuff way more fun, knowing that I'm not going to be dreadfully ill).

I am helping my daughter with her wedding, which is May12th and things can get very stressful. I don't eat alot of red meat, hardly any really so I'm not sure what my triggers are right now. I know for sure, no onions, peppers, broccoli, but I'm sure there are many more.

Last night after I went to bed my stomach hurt, you wouldn't think you would deal with gas pains constantly :( there has to be a soultion, everytime I eat I feel bloated and have gas pains, all foods shouldn't bother me but they seem to.

I seem to be able to digest a burger much better than any other red meat and except for a little indigestion good all beef hot dogs don't bother me but steak, roast beef, chops, etc kill me. Maybe it is cause it is ground up meat.

well, the last time I was home in January, my mom made spaghetti (with ground beef) and italian meat pie (with ground beef) and i was sick and nauseated and gassy and all that jazz. I think it was partly the enzymes, because I haven't tried red meat since getting them. hopefully they'll continue to work...
