IBS Episode 9

Episode 9 (since we’ve started documenting)… 2 days before the close of 2018. Was watching a nice movie with mum when the tummy decided to make its presence known- and no I did not eat anything naughty. I thought it would be just another low in a never-ending cycle of highs and lows but it turned out to be quite a nasty episode… the good news was mum was around and my tablets were handy and it passed quickly. The bad news is that the numbness and tingling in my arms and legs, especially around the joints, hasn’t fully disappeared, even two days on.

I have to say though 1 whole year with only 1 major episode has pretty much been a miracle. Sure, there have been plenty of lows, quite a few of emergency phone calls, a whole lot of sick leaves and depleted annual leaves used up for recovering at home, but I have to say… I don’t think I’ve had a better year since the IBS started over more than 15 years ago… I actually managed to try so many new places, so many different dishes that I would never have dreamed of going near without the pill and out of the comfort of my own home. Not to mention all the road trips and long drives… things that I dreaded and actually got to do without incident in 2018… Grateful? You can’t imagine how much…
