Can't understand it

I've had IBS all of my life.

For the first 30 years I was IBS-C predominant, Then, all of a sudden I switched to become IBS-D predominant ... and I've been that way for the past 25 years.

This past October I went on a vacation to California. Usually, when I travel, I bring my own milk-free, preservative-free, white bread from a local bakery in Toronto because it's very difficult for me to get bread that agrees with me elsewhere.

The local bakery was closed on the day that I flew so I had to go to California without it. Over the next 10 days, I didn't eat any wheat and I felt great.

Immediately when I got home I suddenly became IBS-C predominant. I went back onto bread although I don't know if wheat was related to the switch or not.

Anyway I am now IBS-C pre-dominant and I am very annoyed because it makes me late for work every morning and is so aggravating. I tried going off bread for a few days to see if it was somehow related, but there was no change.

I am eating ample quantities of cooked organic oatmeal, cooked organic beets, raw organic apples (with no peel or core) and other foods that used to give me instant diahrrea. Now, they're only having minimal effect, with no diarrhea at all.

I can't understand it. How could my whole system just suddenly switch like this? It was so much easier to manage IBS-D. I hate being IBS-C predominant again. Does anyone have any explanation for my situation? :-(
