Well everybody - I did it! I went on my first trip since Eating for IBS and hypno and I had a blast! It was only to the shore and it was only a couple of days, but I did it - no probs! Baby steps! I won't bore everyone with all the details, but I just have to say I went on a rollercoaster (a real one - not the IBS rollercoaster ) for the first time in 4 years - what an awesome rush!
OK - enough of that. On to more important non-IBS things - I got engaged! I can't believe it! I'm getting married!
