Questran (generic)

I've been following this diet for about 5 months. Have not come close to stabilizing, even for a day. The only trigger I eat is a small amount of cheese and I've recently cut that out for a while and noticed no change. ANYTHING I eat other than rice, pasta, bread, the really basics - bother me. I seem to be having trouble with butternut squash for crying out loud. But then again, it seems I'm reacting to everything at one time or another.

I saw a new GI on Friday, he recommended Questran since my IBS changed completely when my gallbladder came out. I had to wait to start taking it because I was going to be out of state on Saturday and didn't want to risk adverse affects. I had a horrible attack on Saturday (stress induced) and spend two hours curled up on my aunt's couch crying. Though, for the first time ever, I didn't have D with that level of attack. Later when I got home, I figured I had to eat something and I had a small roll. It literally felt like my stomach seized around the bread as soon as I had swallowed the whole thing. That never happened before. It happened again Tuesday night. At the precise same time, when I ate something soft, small bit of soy ice cream, nothing happened.

I started the Questran (generic) on Sunday. It is vile, vile stuff and the timing with other medication and when you can eat is driving me crazy. And I don't feel any better. I'm continuing to feel worse. I missed work yesterday (again). Then because I spent so much time lying down the last few days, my neck went into spasms this morning (old car injury).

I'm sorry for my rambling post. Today is just a day I want to give up. Sell my house, pay off all my debts and just move. So I don't have the stresses of money and debt and maybe could eek out an existance. I hate my life.

The only bit of hope I have are the hypnotherapy CDs. I am waiting to get some money my brother owes me and if he sends enough, I am ordering them. Otherwise, I feel there is no hope. Nothing is helping. I feel as bad now as I did before I started the diet and I'm restricting so much of what I eat.

I guess I desperately need some support today.
