I had finally had enough of the stomach issues I had been having on and off for over a week and went to the doctor.
Have I traveled recently? Been to a hospital? Visited anyone in a hospital?
No, nope and no again.
Any kind of history of this?
Not really and definitely nothing like this-- this awful unexplainable diarrhea.
So, antibiotics for me, a strict no dairy, bland mild stick with the BRAT diet and a referral to the GI doctor with words likes Crohns and Colitis being thrown around.
My dinner one night- jealous?

The worst part, I cannot get into the GI doctor until October 14th.
Yesterday things finally did seem to be starting to turn around and I introduced some protein (skinless chicken) into my meal as the fatigue from eating next to nothing was catching up to me fast.
From everything I have read I am definitely leaning towards Colitis and this is just an extreme flair up. I will be glad when I finally get to the GI Doctor and hopefully get some real answers.
Until then, if you want to lose a pound a day I have a really great "diet" for you.... oh wait, trust me you don't want this.
*****************Oh did you all realize that tomorrow is the last Tuesday of the month?? One of those weird months where it falls kind of early, but there still will be Ten Things to Smile About, so please come link up and I promise you diarrhea will not make my list!
