Hello my struggling friends!


excl.png excl.png First I wanted to wish everyone a happy IBS awareness month! I hope no one killed their family during this time of isolation. I don't know about anyone else, but I would love to bang my head on a wall until I put myself in a coma so I can sleep through the next few months and wake up with amnesia. Unfortunately, I am alive and well and my bowel movements are acting up again. Has anyone else been experiencing odd cycles while in quarantine? I usually drop around 6 deuces a day, but with my recurring nightmare's my poop count has increased. I am now dropping around 10 deuces a day leaving my bottom medium rare. I am scared I will never stop having to use the royal throne and I will run out of toilet paper. If my toilet use continues to rise I will run out of toilet paper by 4/20 and I will have to wipe my bottom with a receipt from Dunkin Donuts or a Clorox wipe which will likely burn my insides or give me a paper cut. Anyone else struggling? Sending lots of love during this time of constipation and sadness.wub.png wub.png


Enjoy IBS month!

Hi Vjreyes -


Buy some 100% aloe vera lotion and put some on your toilet paper every time you wipe. (Actually, any kind of skin lotion might work, but aloe vera lotion is the best.)


Check Amazon for toilet paper. Last time I checked, they still had it.


Good luck & keep us posted!
