Carol, this may be a long shot but there is a brutal stomach bug out there. I just read an article about one in England that is sending about 100,000 people a week to the doctors. The symptoms sound exactly like we have experienced this week in our house. It may not be the same bug but I have been having bad stomach cramps for several days now. My kids and husband actually vomited but I just have the cramps. It's wicked though. Whatever your problem is I hope things turn around for you soon. But whine away!

Hey Loneylane!!! XOXO

Sorry to hear you are feeling "poopie"... I am to at the present time, hubby is getting over a bad stomach bug and like scrap girl said, I have the cramps and the general yucky feeling, but no throwing up THANK GOD.... I hope you feel better soon.... I think taking my Cultirelle has helped me in the severity of the illness going around my house, I definately think you should break out the "Big Guns" and go on a probiotic, if for nothing else, just to be on the safe side..

Let's try one of these days to do lunch again... (if the weather ever lets up).... LOL

Thanks, I'm finally feeling a bit better today; the cramping is gone, but still have the urgency. I hate that because you get on the pot and like a little thread comes out. Yuck, huh. Hey, where else can I go to explain something so gross and have everyone understand? Hee hee. Anyway, thanks to all of you for letting me whine, and I hope everyone is feeling better soon. At least I have a nice stormy day to stay inside and veg a little.

NO kidding Loneylane!!

I've been on my couch pretty much all day today with my blankie and my little dog.. I did have to go outside this morning for about an hour and clean my horse stalls in the barn and feed them all, WOW, the wind was amazing... I'm impressed that my horses can stay calm inside that barn with all the noise going on... It was even making ME a little nervous it was SO bad.. I did lose part of a 3 sided shelter I had outside for the horses and a BUNCH of oak tree limbs are on the ground here... Other than that I think, I haven't had too much damage from the winds, although I haven't been outside to have a good look at everything yet... Oh well, It is a great day to just stay inside and vegetate.... and until 4:30pm when I have to take care of the horses again, I'm doing just that!!!
