Hello, Just thought I would share a positive thing I did for a friend who just got the dx of IBS.. She has been going for testing, you know all the fun tests we have all been thru.. She had already had her gallbladder out but was still having major stomach issues.. When all the tests where done they told her IBS.. We all know how that feels.. We want to feel that are symptoms are validated and for some reason the dx of IBS does not do that.. So I thought to my self what could I do to make it a little better for her.. So I got a basket and filled it with stuff I already had in the house.. I put in there a book called Eating for IBS which I had already read a 100 times, peppermint tea, mylanta gas pills, chicken soup, some little candles and some bath salts.. I took it over to her and she cried.. It really made me feel good to help someone feel just a little better about
the diagnosis of IBS.. I am thinking of making up these baskets for other people to.. Anyway just thought I would share a postive way to look at IBS. Take care everyone!!
