lol yeah D has its advantages. but then so does C lol. Try a good strong coffee (not instant, proper stuff) and a banana or two. or a bowl of porridge, something high in soluble fibre anway. The coffee just helps get things going a bit easier. good luck! enjoy being able to get out without having to worry where the nearest toilet is haha!
thanks heth, so far today i have eaten 3 nectarines and a banana and had little sucess, a couple of pebble shaped bowel movements, nothing else. im not a a fan of coffee, maybe i should drink it anyway! lol hope you having a good day xXx
A cup of coffee with a package of instant cocoa dissolved in it worked for me the last time I was having trouble. Usually a large Diet Pepsi works wonders--especially if you are washing down a large bowl of ice cream or dark chocolate. No kidding!!
Lynsey - ta for asking - actually it has been horrendous - tough morning at work, came back, thought why is the dog sopping wet (the sun had put in an appearance for once) - ventured into the house (where my 14 year old son was supposed to be "in charge") and found our 8 year old neighbour and my 5 year old daughter "floating" around with a sea of plastic containers and the hose in the kitchen - STRESSED was not the word!!!!! Anyhoo, a jam donut later (and GOD knows what that'll do for the old IBS) and a few hours for the stress to wear off, plus a good mop of the floor (by a very reluctant, grumpy son) - feel almost human again!!Phew - and you?????Sue
well on the advice of everyone i am going to eat/drink all the stuff thats bad for me and not good for D lol i really want the D back! i have had an afternoon of eating lots of fruit with no results yet, but hopefully something will happen soon lol on top of that ive been having hot flashes all day! lol not good in this heat! sounds like an eventful day sue, hope its all calmed down and sorted now. off to eat more fruit and drink a fizzy drink! lol the more caffine in it the better i guess?! hehe thanks every one xXx
Lynsey - all the best to you and your bowels - reminds me of trying to "expel" my 2nd child - a very cobbled street, driving UP and DOWN about 10 times in Alderley Edge - did work in the end.Phew - what a day - celebrating with a LARGE Chinese - god knows what the bowels will make of that but what the hey.Sue
chinese, sounds nice, maybe i should, sure thatll get my bowel moving! or a curry! lol literally sitting here in a puddle of my own sweat! sorry
lol just popped to my grandparents, my nan goes 'you look hot, its probably the oven ive had it on a while!' ahh bless you nan but i wish it was just the oven! enjoy your chinese sue and hope you have a relaxing evening
freaking out now, i still havent gone toilet and my stomach is killing me, ive got work tomorrow, but if i feel like this i really dont want to go. should i call in sick? or just go? i have this thing where i think people think its not a genuine reason, but to me it is xXx
try massaging firmly your tummy going in a circle from your left side to your right. do this say 15 times slowly. SOunds silly but helps me sometimes. and it speeds up my D if im having an episode. maybe thats jus in my head htough. He ehee. Hope youre feeling better soon. xxx
lol reckon its a bit hit and miss lol different things always seem to work at different times!know what you mean about the hot flashes always fun.
Sue hope you're feeling better too. Sounds like an interesting day! I've decided that as far as food goes, i'll eat what i like when i like. Although often i get it rammed down my throat when i really don't want it but you get the drift! No food in particular seems to set me off so why worry about? i might as well enjoy what i do eat
well its the morning, and trying to decide whether to call in sick? on the one side i dont want to cause trouble at work, but on the other hand, am i going to be any use there feeling like this?! i can feel another hot flash coming on! xXx
