I was just flipping through the channels on the TV and I saw an ad for an info session about stomach ailments and IBS right here where I live! It's this Thursday evening. I've never heard of such a thing around here. Most of my friends have never even heard about IBS. You know what, this could be a sign that people are becoming more aware of it. I feel that from this BB I know all there is to know about IBS, but I think I'm going to go to this just in case they mention anything new.I live in Windsor Ontario. Let me know if any of you are from this area, and I'll post the information. Hey, Anxious, maybe word was getting around about the Caltrate shortage because I told the drug store that I use it for IBS and they were pretty surprised.

Sue Poo - Wow! That is great! Perhaps this will eventually be something that people will be more aware of! Then, in turn, hopefully, the Caltrate will become more available! Let us know how the meeting goes - I'd be interested to hear.

The meeting was a thumbs up!Sorry, Britta that I didn't post the info for you.The reason why I didn't post the info because it was posted as Thursday, September 28th on the ad...I was confused. Now, if I'm not mistaken, the 28th was yesterday (Tues), so I just went to the place to see if it was in fact going on and it was.Man, it was amazing. I was the youngest person there by far (Im 24, everyone else was basically over 40). They had 2 pharmacists and 1 doctor and they talked about HEARTBURN, GERD, PEPTIC ULCERS, INDIGESTION AND IBS. Most of the info I already knew but it was really informative!!Unfortunately, my mother lent the handout to a friend, so I will post the details of the meeting when she brings it back. Hopefully, these kinds of sessions will show up where everyone else lives. I just couldn't believe there was one in MY city.It's funny though, it seemed I was the only one there who was interested in the IBS info. Even though they said it affects 20-40% of the population and that many people don't even get it checked or diagnosed, they just live with it. It's also the second most popular sick excuse to call in sick to work.[This message has been edited by Sue Poo (edited 09-29-1999).]
