LOL, ya until you actually have constipation, my gawd it's painful and honestly both D or C suck big time...I saw a show on IBS and they interviewed a lady with chronic IBS-C who said the longest she went without having a bowel movement was 30 days and she said she never felt pain like that in her life and even thought of suicide.
So true. To be honest, I'd much rather have D. At least it comes out easily. Nothing's worse than feeling full and sore and not being able to get rid of it, and then sitting on the toilet straining and feeling like you're having a baby! :P
It's always the worse coming out of a flare and after having nothing but D for months and then you finally have a solid BM and it just kills.
