I just did and it's pretty interesting, although my doctor makes me out to be something of a head case!She kept noting that I "appeared depressed but won't admit it". I don't know whether to laugh or cry! Let's see, I go into my doc's office after being, say, D, for several days, waking up every morning completely nauseated and weak and tired, and totally frustrated after literally years of trying to cope, and she thinks I'm a little depressed.YA THINK? I think she is mixing up my frustration and anger with depression. No WONDER she kept trying to put me on Zoloft! ugh! She also noted twice that she didn't think I was following the "recommended regiment for IBS". Her regiment? Citrucel twice a day, stay away from dairy foods. That's it. That's the regiment. DUH!!!!!!! AS IF!I'm a little upset because I always liked my doctor and she never came out and told me that she thought I wasn't doing my part. IF she had, I would have let her know in no uncertain terms that I have done everything,and I mean EVERYTHING, she and my GI doc have told me to do and when it DOESN'T WORK, it's MY fault? As if I haven't spent the last 5 years of my life going to varoius outside sources and nutritional-type persons to point me in the right direction as far as mental outlook and diet and researching every crumb about IBS I can find in magazines and the internet???AAARGH! It's like these doctors have absolutely NO clue. To read my medical records, it seriously sounds like I cannot handle going to the bathroom! You know, if you don't know me you would not guess that I even have this problem, I cope on my own, and I, like most of us, do NOT try to "cheat" my way through IBS by sitting by and doing nothing. HAD I kept on listening to my two lovely doctors I would still be writhing in agony every morning, afraid to go out anywhere, ever! Thanks to you guys, my own research, and even my Mom's own research, I have been able to live an almost normal life for the last 3 or 4 years (the first 2 1/2 with ibs were pure hell!). And I haven't been doing MY part???? UUUUUUUUUGGGGGGGHHHHHHH!!!!Sorry, I don't normally get so animated, but gee whiz, what the heck else am I supposed to do? Tell me, am I or am I not entitled to get a little upset when I get a severe bout of IBS out of the blue even though I've done everything right? Or should daily nausea and reflux and intestinal pain just be ignored and accepted and embraced as just a part of who I am? I'm sorry-- I don't mean to vent. I know I don't have this IBS nearly as bad as a lot of you anymore (like I used to, I mean), but it still gets to me sometimes, and now I feel like I'm not entitled to the frustration because according to the doc's notes, "it's just IBS".
