Just a quick vent

I just need to vent about a set-back I had this morning. I'm assuming it was completely stress related. I'm not even going to bother worrying about what I ate yesterday b/c I have been known to send myself into a tizzy over IBS. I volunteered (yes, am I crazy?) as a mother's helper for my son's school activities this morning. I did make myself an "extra", thinking that I would feel less anxiety if they weren't counting on me. I had to leave early anyway to watch my daughter.

Anyhow, I woke up (like Mike Mahoney says on the hypno) thinking about my IBS right away and trying to block it out. I didn't have a BM yesterday so that's why I started thinking, "oh..what if I have a problem now today." So I had a bm before breakfast (not a good sign), took my acacia with oatmeal and went a few more times. I was determined to avoid immodium b/c I really wanted to see if I could get through with just letting the Acacia do it's job and learning how to calm myself down. Well, I left the house with my son only to have to stop at a port-a-potty down the road from us. What on earth will I do when they stop doing construction in my neighborhood?!

So that was it. Once I got to school and got involved in everything I felt much better and didn't have to go anymore. My belly feels a little beat up right now but I ate a safe lunch and I should be okay. I'm trying to see this as a success (in some backwards way). In the past I would have had to take like 3 immodium to make it stop and I would have been in more pain. So that's my story...just wanted to share. I hate when things like this happen. I can't help thinking that I don't want to be a disappointment to my children b/c of my IBS. My son would have been so sad if I hadn't stayed (5 year old). Anyhow, thanks for listening to my vent.
