  1. IBS Diarrhea (IBS-D)
    For 50 years I have lived my life around my colon. Doctors call it spastic colon. I don't agree, my colon is stronger than Arnold schwarzenegger and is extremely coordinated - and with a mind of it's own. To be succinct, if I felt ANY urge I would need to march to the bathroom, counting steps...

  8. IBS Diarrhea (IBS-D)
    I have taken Imodium/Loperamide fairly successfully for many years. I have to take it daily, 2 tablets in the morning and 2 at night, at the regular dosage of 2 mg a tablet. I simply would not be able to function without it. In a way it is a life saver for me. I find I still have terrifying...
