It is easy to feel the way you do Nancy. I don't want to accept that the IBS is with me forever. I read a post awhile ago in which the person referenced how they were in denial, slipping back into old dietary habits, thinking, "oh...I'll probably be alright. I can eat like everyone else." That's me. I'm working on the acceptance as I notice how much better my body is feeling when I am avoiding the triggers. Look at it this way...instead of being upset about this set-back, you are fortunate that you know your body can handle some "leeway" with trickier foods. You say you have been in the red and yellow zone and now are in the green zone trying to recoup. Be disciplined and strict with yourself for awhile until you are stable again, with the goal in mind that you may be able to stay green and yellow without a future problem. And maybe even have a red item now and then. I hope that helps.

I know it is very discouraging and especially this time of year. I ate 2 butter cookies this morning and now I'm like, "Why on earth did I do that?" No attack, but I feel just plain "yucky" now and if I have an attack tomorrow or feel uneasy, it will be my own fault. It's because it was sitting there on the counter from a weekend party. Great idea to throw out all the temptations. Those cookies are going right in the garbage! But if there is something that I REALLY love, I look forward to the day that I might be able to handle a couple bites or a small piece of something. I can't rush my body though...need to get more stable first.

So hang in there. Part of the IBS battle is learning and knowing your own body which it seems like you already do, so just pick your chin up and get back on track. We're here for you to vent in the meantime.
