Just a lil health update:
After the weekend from hell, I am back on the mend. My ibs abdominal cramping was intense. I've been dealing with this issue for ten odd years or so.
As the years go by, the condition seems to worsen. It probably doesn't help that my gallbladder was removed in '99. I don't know. I have learned to manage my life around everything.
Sometimes health issues pop up and you just have to ride it out. It also helps to have pain management & a energy conserving plan.
The condition seems to go hand in hand with depression & anxiety. I have been dealing with mental health since childhood.
