Thank you, Colette, I am just not used to it. I was diagnosed with IBS, many yeras ago, and would have attacks, but they would happen in the middle of the night, once or twice and go away, this has lasted so long. I have not had any attacks for about 5 years, and they never lasted that long.

How are you doing today? I guess I am getting so angry complaining all the time, and sometimes my husband listens, and I feel like at times he is getting tired of hearing it.

Sunday, he was worried thogh, he does know my fears, with what happened to mom and it killed her. Just the word bowels is a bad word in my family, my sister has severe case of Crohns disease, and my son also has it, but he has not had any problems, and it will be 4 years in May, he takes 2400 mgs of Asacol, and I pray everyday forhim.

Love, Toni
