Hi Tim,
I also have IBS-D with years of struggle with it, many years couldn't work then tried Imodium and I was able to work for a few years. I didn't have Heather's books back then and lived on bland diet with fat!!! was trying to keep from loosing more and more weight, not knowing I wasn't helping myself diet wise, anyway I took Imodium during the week and not on weekends for 3 years straight. As my body adjusted to the dosage I had to add more and more it made me less alert, that scared me, I drove to work every morning.
So I quit my job.
Now I have a tip I use- works most of the time.
I eat 2-3 hours before I have to leave the house. Most of my IBS-D problems happen in that timeframe each morning.And take Oyster shell Calcium 600mgs 1 pill with each of the 3 main meals. exercise before breakfast.
If don't get up in time to do an exercise program I turn on soft music and do 5 minutes of easy stretching to get the kinks out then 5 minutes of deep breathing meditation.
When I'm away from home and feel stressed I drop into a few minutes of deep breathe meditation and press the web between thumb and pointing finger(do a Search acupressure by shawneric) this helps my stomach relax.
Remember were all here for you, and know what your going through.
Be good to yourself.
