Hi everyone. I don't have anything too exciting to post, I just wanted to whine. I am feeling really sad today.
I just started taking Caltrate for my IBS-D after reading about it on the D message board. The first few days it seemed to work wonders, but last night (The 3rd day) I was really constipated so I decreased my dose of Calcium and skipped my Levsin pill. Then today I have had D again! I am so depressed about this! I just want to have a normal life again without having to worry about what is going to come out of me! Sorry to bring everyone's mood down. I just need a hug and someone to tell me that everything is going to be okay.
Talk to ya later. ~Ashley

hey there *hug* i'm so there x i can't get my symptoms under control at the moment either but there has to be some way of getting back to coping!
It's jsut so frustrating, isn't it? I recomend having a tantrum, a good cry, hurling plenty of pillows and then trying to laugh just a tiny bit at how ridiculous we look with smeared makeup and big puffy eyes...see how big a snot bubble you can blow *eugh*take care x let me know how you get on x

Hey, Hope you're feeling better. It's hard. I tried my hardest to eat well the other day and I still got really ill. No fun. So I understand where you're coming from. I agree... sometimes you just need to have a good cry or whine to someone.... it may not neccesarily solve the problem..but it will at least make you feel better for a little while.

Hey gosh! I know how that feels big time. I know its hard but you need to hang in there. Maybe you could talk to your doctor and devise an action plan?Keep going iththe caltrate. It takes a while to find the right dose for you. Maybe try taking just 2 a day and see what happens?I did hypnotherapy, which has helped me enormously. I can't recommend it highly enough. Its seems very expensive at frst, but the benfits weigh out the cost! It �70 Sterling. Dunno how much US. Maybe $100? Im not sure. Its weel worth looking into. www.ibsaudioprogram.com or look at the Hypno and CBT forum on the BB in Coping technights i think.Hang in there. Try and keep positive. I know its hard but dont' give up.Good luck.

is that �70 per session or altogether for hypnotherapy? I'm desperate so will try anything, but the money thing is a problem.Also, i read an account of this guy whose been taking ibsacol from a company in New Zealand but it's gona cost about �35 per month and i'm a little cynical... He's had fantastic results, but as everyone is different, i'm not sure whether to try it or not.

Thanks to everyone who has replied! YOu don't know how good it makes me feel to know that there are others out there that know what i am going through and don't think that i am "making it up". Keep the words of advice coming. It really does make a difference!
Love to all, Ashley
