Hi everyone,I've been away from the board for a while. I overcame a major hurdle today. We had tickets to see The Nutcracker today in Manhattan. My husband didn't want to drive with all the snow so we had to take the bus. I really didn't want to go on the bus. I was very much afraid of D. I hinted around that I couldn't go but I knew my kids would be upset and I did not want to let IBS ruin this. This morning I woke up and had to go to the bathroom four times in a half hour. I thought this didn't seem good. I took three immodium and two donnatal and told myself I could do this. Don't think I wasn't extremely anxious about the 45 minute bus ride. We made it to the theatre. Then at intermission I got nervous again when I saw the line for the bathroom. I overcame my fear and took two more donnatal and calmed down some. By the time we got back on the bus I was relaxed. I made it!Have a happy new year everyone!. I'm going to try to get through one hurdle at a time.JW

jwbird,I know the feeling. It's like you have to convince yourself that you will get through it. It's so hard to explain, unless you actually felt it. I had that feeling when I was on an airplane to Europe. I had an attack and there was a huge line for the bathroom. I do not know where I got the courage but I went all the way to first class opened the curtain and told the stewardess I had an emergency. They did not want to let me go till they saw how white and pale I was getting. You did it. Congrats. You made it through. One day at a time is how I look at it. Happy New Year!

Good for you, and Happy New Year! I hope this will be the start of overcoming many hurdles for you. The first one is always the hardest. [This message has been edited by JuliaNYC (edited 12-31-2000).]
