Hello, I just wanted to thank you all who sent me those wonderful and informative letters. My husband and I are currently working with a public relations company to participate in a public information campaign to familiarize Americans with IBS. I believe that it was all of your letters that made this possible and of course Jeff Roberts. Thanks Again, Camille Grammer
Thanks for the good words, Camille! We really appreciate your efforts. I hope you can use the info from our board to help you. Finding this BB was just what I needed for moral support and good practical advice. Best wishes!wpmom
Camille,I responded to your other post before I saw this one. The news you bring is indeed wonderful! We're so glad to have you with us.Tell that great comedian "hello" for us. Hope you don't mind, but I love him. (I'm sure you have heard that many times before, from many different people)... I'm sure the ball will probably get rolling now, bringing it to the public's attention---none of us asked for this "disorder" as I've seen it called.------------------LET'S ALL PRAY FOR A CURE TO THIS IBS SOON!BETTIE
Camille, how wonderful to hear that you have joined us. I am sure that if you need any assistance from any of us on this and other boards we would be more than happy to oblige - I know that I certainly would. I saw a small portion of your bit with Howard Stern -- I thought he was absolutely terrible and obnoxious to you. If you need my help, just let me know. Many thanks for all you and Kelsey have done to date.
That is excellent!! I would also like to offer whatever I can to help. It will be wonderful for the general public (and drug companies) to be aware of this, and I'm sure if you take on the responsibility for educating the public, you'll have perhaps as big a following as your husband! What great news!------------------Fear can hold you prisoner.......hope can set you free.Missycat
Camille,Thank you so much for your response.This may sound really corny, but I actually got tears in my eyes when I heard about your speaking out about IBS. It's SO frustrating to have this & it felt like such a relief to have someone as well known as you are out there publicly talking about it.We're very grateful to have you as a spokesperson! -UPandDOWN
Now you've gone and gotten me all emotional. I'll probably end up in the bathroom soon! Bless your heart for taking this seriously. There are a lot of us out here struggling every day, any help you can give us on this will be gratefully accepted. I will be praying for your strength and leadership to find us the way.
How wonderful that you and your husband are willing to take on the task of getting the word out about IBS! That is fabulous!!! I along with the rest of the "family" here appreciate your efforts. Thank you very much!Hope you are feeling well,K9Mom------------------Happiness is a warm puppy. -Charles Schultz
Camille - Hello. Welcome to the board! I am so thrilled that you have joined us here!Unfortunately, I didn't see the program that you and your husband were on. But, it is wonderful, to say the least, that you have decided to spread the word about IBS. Perhaps this will help, eventually, to bring about a medical breakthrough of some kind for all of us.Since I missed the program, I'm not aware of your IBS problems. I hope you are doing well. I hope you will continue to post here when you have some free time. I've found this board to be of much help, both emotionally and physically. Until I found this board (accidentally I might add!), I thought I was alone in the world with this. So, obviously, it has been of tremendous help to know there are others like me and to be able to talk to others who truly understand.Take care.~ Anxious. By the way, my husband watches Frasier all the time!
Camille, I can't believe that you're really doing this! What a wonderful thing for us, for you -- for everybody! Nobody loses here. As I said in my e-mail, I find it terribly brave of you. I'm a free-lance journalist around L.A. and also would love to help in getting the word out, any way I can. [This message has been edited by Persistance (edited 10-22-1999).]
Camille, I say Ditto to all that was said above and want to thank you from the heart on this,it is exactactly what we need at this time, and you and your husband could not be better spokepeople for this cause,and I am truly sorry you have IBS,but hopefully we will find a cure to this with everyone's help,but you joining us with your and your husbands exceptional humor is a great thing. Thanks for taking the time and if there is anything we can do for you please feel free to ask!------------------ http://webpotential.com/ericibs/index.htm
