Judy and Mudflinger: I've heard of the book. I wouldn't mind having it...but I'm kind of low on money (plus I just caved and bought It Starts With Food before I found Practical Paleo.) Good book and it does have some advice that I haven't encountered elsewhere, but probably not as "practical" in the sense of a variety of recipes and there's only a little blib on IBS and Digestive diseases. (Happy Bday Mud Flinger) Sometimes I think I shouldn't buy any books so I can get food.
Ever since I was diagnosed with having IBS, I've become a hypochondriac. It's not a fun feeling, to constantly worry about one thing or another and not knowing if they're linked or something completely different! I need to see a doctor for a general check up, but I'm still afraid because I simply don't trust them. It's already common knowledge that when it comes to IBS they're not so sensitive. And I have seen a GI specialist. He gave me anti-spasmodic medication (Nulev or previously Levsin) and suggested like...fiber powder supplementation or something. I don't think diet ever came up. I don't want to go to a doctor for help and find they don't know anymore than I do...or worse...I know more than they do.
I'm feeling super agitated and anxious today. I'm getting low on food and I'm not able to go to the store until tomorrow. I hated eating my eggs this morning and I don't have anything precooked/thawed. I don't feel like doing anything...
