wow. it might be kind of weird, but reading that brought me to tears.. lol ive never had anyone like encourage me or tell me that its gonna be ok. and ive never had any advice over it. ive tried talking to my mother about it but she just tells me to suck it up, that im just like this because i worry and to get over it. so i really really appreciate it. thank you soo much and i will make the best of it. and one more question. will taking half of an off brand immodium before each meal make you constipated? ive never tried that, but it makes a lot of sense.
