This has been my week:Saturday- Very good day. I went out to dinner with my family and then we went to the casino and the hotel bar. Lovely evening.Sunday- I was feeling terrible. After three weeks D free, I got sick again. I felt it was my fault because I had two Blue Caracaos the night before (which I doubt had anything to do with it; now I have figured that my body needed to get cleansed of all the Immodium I had to take previously... rebound symptoms???). I even had very bad nausea (due to a stressful situation). Luckly, during the evening I felt better.Monday- I just stayed home, I took the day off. Started Librax again, along with calcium and Immodium (my combination therapy). I need the sedative, at least for now. I take Immodium and it works out, but I still shake and feel very anxious.Tuesday- I got a job in a school in front of my house. How lucky am I???
Definetly, the best thing that has happened in a long time.Wednesday- I went to practice with a volleybal team (after 13 years without playing). My team is BAD, but I am sure we will have lots of fun and at least I know I wont be on the bench all the time. Ah!, my bowels behaved today, so this could be excellent for me.If there is something possitive I have taken out of this stupid IBS is to be thankful for the days that I am feeling better and for the things that I can actually do. Sometimes I get so angry and depressed, like last Sunday... I am just happy to know that after one bad day there is a pontential of very good days ahead.

zayaka, I am going to follow your example and try to be thankful for the fact that for today, I will be able to do everything I need to do. My IBS has been under control for last couple weeks (surprising, considering the stress I've been under) and I am determined to be grateful.My day today is so insane, I need to go only an hour at a time, rather than a day at a time, and tomorrow will only be slightly better.Here's my day:9 am-daughter to band practice9:50 am-doctor appt11 am-pick up daughter, go shopping for school clothes2:45 pm-daughter back to band practice3:15 pm-job interview4:45 pm-pick up daughter from band6:00 pm-daughter to cross country practice7:30 pm-pick up daughter, more shopping for school clothessomewhere in there I have to find time to feed myself and kids, and go for the blood tests the doc will most likely order. Might put off the blood tests till tomorrow. Might also put off the second shopping trip till tomorrow.Ugh, wish me luck.

LMB, seems to me you are a super mom! I do not have kids and I totally respect the fact that all moms have to be super human at times (if not every day) to deal with everything there is to do.Froggy, what is booze? I am not familiar with that word. It could have been them, but I've drank Blue Curacao before and this is the first time I have experienced these symptoms the day after. Anyway, I will be more careful.Thank you both

Booze is a slang term for all forms of alcoholic beverages, particularly hard liquer (rum, vodka, gin, whisky, etc.) Blue Curacao being an orange-flavored liquer qualifies as booze. It is often used in mixed drinks to make them blue.Ethyl alcohol is fairly notorious for causing diarrhea and alot of IBSers colon's seem to have litte tolerance for adult beverages. K.------------------I have worked for the government and at universities doing scientific research primarily in the area of the environment and the impact of environmental factors on human health, I have never done any independant clinical testing for the pharmaceutical industry, nor have I ever worked for a drug company. I have no financial, academic, or any other stake in any commercial, natural, or any other product mentioned by me.My story and what worked for me in greatly easing my IBS: http://www.ibsgroup.org/ubb/Forum17/HTML/000015.html[This message has been edited by kmottus (edited 08-16-2001).]

Not really a supermom... just trying to get through the day as best I can and hoping my stomach stays ok while I do it. Got it all done today except the blood tests, which I will do tomorrow. Bedtime now though, I'm exhausted
