Thanks you guys, your words are reassuring.
@IPoop, you have an attitude that doesn't add extra stress onto "the unknown" and I am flirting with surrender. Never has been my strong suit.....but life is always giving one another chance to try try again until you get things figured out, I guess?
@Flowersgirl,this started around a month ago .....maybe when I added my new probiotics??? I wonder if it's actually a sign I have a little spill over in areas where there shouldn't be? were you taking probiotics at the time, too?
Plus I am now drinking daily water and milk kefir (that I am making here at home). I just started that a week ago though. But maybe I shouldn't be consuming so many bugs if my immune system is having difficulty understanding bugs? hmmmm.....
@quincy, I have a feeling this IS caused by inflammation because I had a random evening poo last night and when I looked there was nothing but a big brown pile of what looked like ribbons in the toilet. Or a very long tapeworm. The flattest, thinnest poop I've ever seen.
I promised myself to stop photographing feces. (because I always chickened out showing my doctor anyway) or I'd have snapped a photo. It must be my colon is mad about
the colonoscopy, too?
I know you're right. I have just never had anything in my life that I haven't been able to fix before. And I have created many a mess in my day and have lots of experience "righting the ship". This is the first time that, despite extraordinary efforts on my part.....things seem to be progressing in the wrong direction.
But I do need to celebrate what IS good and there is plenty that could be worse. I appreciate you guys being here and sharing your wisdom and experience. I really do.
