Bathroom Un-humor

You know what sucks? I'll tell you. Being stuck in the bathroom with intestinal issues that could double over a pro wrestler. This is not a once in awhile type problem for me. You'd think I'd have it figured out by now. I've done everything I know to do - I've cut out certain foods/groups of foods, I've taken lactose intolerance meds just in case that was the problem, I've added more fiber to my diet. Nothing, no results. Sometimes I think cheese makes me sick, sometimes a steak will do it, sometimes I think it might be citrus. But, most of the time I'm simply clueless about what the hell my problem is.

From what I've read online it seems that I have stress-induced IBS. That sucks. It's not something I can get a prescription for and be done with it. I can alter my diet, although there is no guarantee that the intestinal gurgling and subsequent unpleasant bathroom experiences will subside. I need to find a gastrointestinal specialist who can tell me definitively what my afflicition is and what the best course of action is to counteract the nasty symptoms. I'm just very sick of being sick. This morning I woke up feeling like there was something sharp & spikey sitting in my belly. Not one of my favorite sensations, that's for sure. I'll go a week being fine, and then *boom* I'm stuck in the bathroom, sick as a dog.

Speaking of dogs, I miss Duke.
