I've been doing really well this spring. Schools out and I'm just working so there's no stress, but today I had the weird bowel movement I've ever had...At first it was all just mucus (this is the science nerd in me, but it looked like a space nebula...) and then I started cramping but I couldn't go and I still can't. If this continues I will definitely call my GI mostly because I should probably have another scope before school but its just so weird for me! :( I don't know if I can chalk it up to IBS or if I'm beginning to flare.

Time will tell, and it could just be IBS....if you are due for a scope, then definitely make the appointment before you're back at school.

Of course I had to look up space nebula..lol!

Haha pooping the milky way! That made me giggle.

Princess-I like your suggestion. I'm not ready for a flare. Another 20 years should do it :)
