Okay, well, I may have been a little emotional (angered) when I posted my farewell. Thanks to the very caring people on this board, you brought me back to reality, making me remember why I participate, to help others.A huge thank you to you all who sent me such sweet messages and pleas. It did my heart good to know that most people on this board consider my offerings heart felt and not intended to harm.To that end, yes, I will continue to visit and perhaps post when appropriate.Now to another matter. I was reading the post from Jeffery re. the American Wholehealth Inc., Causes of IBS. It was interesting to read that alcohol could play a part of type C IBS. While I am primarly type D, I have alternated between the two at times. Additionally, I used to social drink, but over a period of time I noticed that alcohol caused me pain in my back and problems breathing. I didn't say anything to my physician about this, I just gave up drinking any form of alcohol. You know the old joke "doctor when I do this it hurts and he says well don't do that", so I haven't.Now the question, do any of you, if you have ever drank or drink alcohol, have this effect?Thanks.
