I can drink a glass of wine or two, but more and I get gurgly.
I often mix white wine with club soda (and ice and lemon). Then I don't drink nearly as much alcohol when I'm out for a long evening with friends or around the pool. Safer for the drive home, too, needless to say! It's tasty, especially in the summer and some of my friends have started drinking it too.
Beer doesn't seem to bother me at all.
Hard liquor will cause me to bleed, no question about it. I miss my Jack&Ginger.

August 2008 sought care of naturopathic doctor. Food sensitivity test showed gluten, other intolerances; started diet without gluten, soy, dairy, tomato etc. Replete probiotic first, then Forte pills.
Achieved remission for the first time in many, many years!? Seemed so, but colonoscopy Oct. 6 proved not so, heavy inflammation in ascending colon & will be using Rowasa again. But I AM better.
