A Nice Welcome Back

Maybe I should go away more often because when we got back from NB, my mailbox was stuffed with goodies! LOL!

I was the runner up in Denise's giveaway and feast your eyes on this -

Photobucket

Wow is right! My eyes bulged out of my head when I opened the box. Needless to say, it took me awhile to go through everything. I was definitely spoiled and I want to thank Denise again for her incredible generosity AND for letting me use her picture ;o)

There are a few more things that I will share but unfortunately we're having a rain storm at the moment and pictures are just not possible :o( Stay tuned though!

I still wasn't feeling myself when we got back home so off to the doctor I went. He seems to think that my IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome) has flared up again :o( I've had IBS since about 1995. My worry is that it may now be Crone's due to the new symptoms that have developed over the years but I refuse to go for a colonoscopy. Does anyone have any suggestions or advice they can share with me? If you don't want to leave it in a comment, you can email me. Thanks!

Can they just do an ultrasound to make sure there are no growths hendering or irritating your digestive system?

Plum Smart makes plum juice that is very soothing on the digestive system and helps regulate it. I've started drinking it daily.

I have a friend who has Crone's Disease and she follows a gluten free diet. She says within a week of starting it she felt so much better. It's an idea! You might try it.

My friend has IBS and she drinks a glass of Metamucil every morning and says it helps her. NOW go have a colonoscopy, the prep is bad but worth it to have it done.

I forgot to say, great package of goodies !!

Whoa! That is an awesome giveaway! Congrats on winning. :)

I have some IBS 'issues' from having my gallbladder removed and one thing that helped me is NO SUGAR in the things you drink and NO CAFFEINE. Those definitely 'set me off'. Sadly, grazing on carby things during the day, like crackers, also helped but I wouldn't recommend that because it's a good way to gain weight. lol
