Dang, about 15 minutes after I asked if we were having chat, I got really tired and fell asleep! Totalllllly missed it! And since, I've not been feeling too good, don't think it's U/C though, I think I over ate at my neighbor's house.. She had Tri-Tip, green beans, potatoes and noodles... all cooked "downhome" style... Yummyyyyyy... I totally porked out... Quincy, if you read this, even worse than the Turkey leg!!!!!!  I have not stuffed myself like that in a loooooooooooooooooooong time.... (well, since the turkey leg thing)... I've been feeling like crap for 2 days now and hardly slept last night... I think I'm over the hump of it now and feeling better, but I do need to catch up on my sleep... 

  I'll try not to miss it next week... .... D'OH!!!!

Wilma....wow, Tri-Tip..actually sounds kind of yummy...is it a Mennonite/German meal?? I guess you had one mouthful too much..lol! Hey, hope it wasn't like the salmonella-ladened turkey leg..yeeha!

Give your symptoms a day or two...don't wait too long if something is inceasing such as constipation or more bms and nausea. At least you have the meds available. Bentyl can help.

Hope you have a feeling better week!
Maybe see you next chat...

I felt like a loser being the only one in the chat room, I waited a while and noone showed up, I felt so pathetic I logged off.

Hey Quincy.. lol....

I guess it was a virus, my hubby got the same thing the next night... I could have SWORN it was the food since I did pig out worse than I did at the drag races that day with that darn turkey leg (another stupid move)... HA! Oh well, I am relieved in a way, now I know I can enjoy a tri-tip once in a while without paying for it later. But, I won't be stuffing myself like I did that night, that was a rare occasion and I can't believe I ate like that, knowing my condition. But, sometimes the smell of good food just does me in and I lose control!!! LOL I'm feeling much better tonight thank goodness and no signs of a flare so far.. (knocking on wood)

Princess!!! I'm sorry I never joined you in chat!! I didn't mean to pass out and had every intention of participating that night... I just got sick with that virus I guess and am just today feeling back to normal... I'll be there next week though.... Sorry you were there all alone.. :( how sad!!!

Something I want to complain about and I'll probably start a new post on this subject just to see if anyone is stuck like I am..... This darn drug Effexor XR... I am on 37.5mg and take one a day. I have tried to get off it a few times and the withdrawl side effects are HORRID!!! Has anyone else experienced that? I am so upset and angry, had I known it would be almost impossible to get off of, I would have never started taking it in the first place... I am back on it now because I just can't handle the withdrawls.... I noticed that some other members here take anti-depressants and wonder how many of us still do because we can't get off them!
