Hello, all! I'm working on a story about how gastro problems can make holiday gatherings especially difficult. For one thing, all the rich foods may set off symptoms. And then there you are, in a crowded, fancy room, and you have cramps and gas! Arg! I'm hoping this story will offer advice to avoid the problems, and helpful tips on coping with them. So I'm counting on your help! Please email me comments on holiday parties, maybe your own experiences, how you cope. I'm at dru.sefton###newhouse.comThanks so much, and Merry Christmas, or whatever holiday you might celebrate!
