Hey, I'm an old-timer, just thought I'd stop by to say hi. I haven't posted much in the last couple of years, except to chime in on Michele's diagnosis news. How's everyone?

Hey Michele,

Everything is going really well. Like I posted in November, I've had a crazy year. I met Mike online in the end of January -- actually our first email was almost exactly a year ago. Our first date was Feb 10, and we got engaged on April 13! It's been really exciting. We're getting married exactly 4 months from today. I moved out of Manhattan in September and am living in Brooklyn now, a couple of blocks from where my mother and grandmother grew up. I love it and am so happy there.

I'm still working at the same firm, doing securities arbitration and some other commercial litigation. It's going pretty well. Of course, I'd rather win the lottery, but if I have to work, it might as well be here.

Things have been alright IBS-wise. I used to be sooo D before I found this site, and then I was either stable or sort of A-ish. Lately I'm totally stable except when I travel -- then I am the C monster for like a week. Very annoying. I never thought I would be C but I guess our bodies change. Otherwise I am feeling really great. I sort of want to lose 5 - 8 pounds before the wedding (really for the honeymoon) but I'm not trying that hard. I'll probably stress out enough in the final month that I'll lose a few pounds anyway.

That's about it! I'm cooking a lot, knitting a ton, decorating my apartment, and generally enjoying life!

How is everyone else?

Hi Amanda! I don't know if you remember me or not?? Congrats on the wedding! That must be so exciting. Sounds like things are going well in your job also. I have two children now Noah 4 and Ava 14months. We are in the process of moving right now and selling our current home. It has been a busy past couple of months. How is Ashley a.k.a Dr. Spice doing? It was nice to hear from you. I don't get on the boards much anymore. Life is busy!

Hey! Of course I remember you. I lurk a little and I've seen the pics you've posted of your adorable kids. Congratulations!

I talk to Ashley every day. She's doing great, living in Maryland, working in a few different schools, has two cats and a nice boyfriend.

Thanks! Great to "see" you too. I am still jealous of the time you spent in Spain. Are you fully re-acclimated to the US?

I have been back two years now. I can hardly believe it. I still miss living in Spain and think of it often. It is an experience that will stay with me forever.

I would love to go back for a visit but I know it wouldn't be the same. We are looking at another move soon but it will be some where in the states not overseas again.

Hi Angela (and everyone else!)

I randomly decided to do a little lurking today and just noticed this post. =]

I'm doing really well! Amanda gave you a pretty good summary and everything she said is correct. We talk everyday and i'll def be at her wedding. I'm a full time psychologist now (FINALLY) and i'm still living in MD.

I adopted two adorable kittens almost a year ago and found myself a fantastic boyfriend as well. Hopefully i'll be the next to announce an engagement. We've been ring shopping (fingers crossed).

I still have some IBS like symtpoms (i.e. I don't know what it's like to NOT have D).. but i'm kinda over it. I've lived like this for the last 10 years so I just grin and bear it. That's what life has handed me, so if I gotta go in public, I gotta go in public. Oh well.

I'm all for Heather's program, but for me personally cutting out certain foods didn't work. I still drink coffee and eat pizza and all sorts of bad things. I know I shouldn't but it's a total crap shoot (no pun intended). Some days they bother me, some days they don't. It's a price i'm willing to pay.

I just tell my friends it's a great diet. Considering what I eat, I should be a lot larger than I am. My friends are all jealous that I drop half the calories immediately after every meal.

At least I keep immodium in business.

Hope all is well with ya'll.


Anyways, I've had a blog for awhile and any old friends are welcome to check it out-since I don't make it back here nearly enough. http://mylifeasacrazycatlady.blogspot.com

Hey right back at you! Nice to hear from you. It sounds like life is really treating you well. Congrats on the job and new guy! Hope you have a ring on that left hand soon! I know what you mean about eating things. Ever since I started a AD my IBS has been so much better and I have been able to eat alot of other things. I actually had my first attack today after about 1 year. But I totally ate some not so great stuff so I knew it would happen! Anyways we are moved into our new house and loving it. Take care of yourself and pop in now and then!

Hey.. I will definitely try to pop in more around here!

Congrats on the new house and sorry about the attack. I still have them every few days, but they have become 100% more manageable. Maybe i'm growing out of it.
