I think I know what you mean, Big Mike. Sometimes I come to this side and see posts about how someone's big toe is hurting due to their IBS. (I'm exaggerating, but I don't want to embarrass anyone by using specific posts) I'm not a doctor or an expert, but I do sometimes shake my head.I do agree with the others though. So many times I have been helped by knowing someone out there went through the same thing. When you see adults devastated b/t they defecated all over themselves, they need to know they are not the only one. I am not an expert to know all the answers, but I can offer someone comfort or advice if I have dealt with it myself. They can take it or leave it, but if it helps someone, that makes me feel good. I think I agree in part with you...but just not all the time.
