Nightsounds,Welcome aboard ! Yes, you will find more information and support here than you ever imagined. I hope you will always feel like a welcome soul in this journey.Personally, I'd like to thank you already for your positive, "upbeat" presentation and approach to life and this "condition". How cool is that?Best wishes and keep in touch. Isn't calcium great? I have LNape on this board to thank for helping me regain some semblance of a normal life with calcium. My deeptest gratitude goes to her, Eric and of course, Marilyn(Cookies4Marilyn)...with the calcium,prayer, the HT tapes and profound support via e-mail and phone from these people..life is livable again !!!!Be encouraged...life doesn't end with IBS !!!
