Ugh. One of IBSers worst nightmares. Usually I do quite well. 2 Imodium and I'm good. But this time I'm a little worried. I've been on antibiotics for the past week or so because of a cold and its totally screwed up my system. I usually take one Imodium a day but I stopped when I got the antibiotics so I didn't like mess myself up somehow...I know I'm paranoid. So today I skipped my antibiotic (I only have one left) partly so Imodium might work, and partly cause..I..dropped it in mop water. *cough* But anyways...yeah I'm a little nervous now cause I've had D for the past couple days. Not really painful just a little urgent. Hopefully taking two Imodium tonight will still work.
Darn relatives. Why must they live so far away?

Ditto Nanobug's comment! Why in the world would ANYONE take antibiotics for a cold.... especially someone who has IBS-D?? If your doctor gives you antibiotics for a cold, I'd find another doctor!

Well more of a sinus infection than a cold...and its not my real doctor who prescribed it, I had to go to the urgent care center because my regular doctor isn't open on Saturdays, and the guy just walked in and prescribed it. *shrug*

PS-Wish me luck, I'm about to take Imodium and go to bed. Geez I hate this constant worry, it really takes over a person's life. *sigh*Happy Thanksgiving all! Not sure if the internet will work well where I'm going, so have a good holiday!

Well, hope everything went well. I am in a right state cause my in laws live 2 hours away, and we are going to stay the night there, I'm already worrying about D in their house. I'm taking 2 Imodiums 2 hours we set off, and of course my lexapro.

We have to tell ourselves "it will be a-ok"!! If you're worried about your two immodium not working for you, take 3. It won't hurt you. And, Moni, I bet they've had diarrhea a time or two in their lives also
Bring your immodium, spray, whatever makes you most comfortable when you're home. I'm having a bad day today, but,I'm at home, I'm cooking, I drank some tea, ate spearmint candy, took 2 librax, things are starting to calm down in the gut finally.Take care of yourself.

Thanks for the encouragement guys! The 2 worked but I was too afraid to eat on the 8 hour trip, so I was pretty hungry but I'm used to that. Once I got there I realized I could have eaten and was like, "####!" Oh well.
