My IBS Diary Week 3 Update

Welcome to My IBS Diary Week 3! Time really does fly when your working hard to take control of ones IBS! Make sure you subscribe to me (for free!) to be notified of more IBS & Gluten Free Videos every week!

So the first part of this week really put me on a bit of a downer. As anyone with IBS-C knows, going to the toilet on a regular basis doesn’t always come naturally. For me, the first four days of this week were exactly that. I wasn’t able to go at all. This made me feel both mentally and physically drained. I didn’t feel like I was doing anything wrong, I was eating what I usually eat, I wasn’t feeling overly stressed… I think IBS just loves throwing negative days at you every once in a while as a complete surprise. (a BAD surprise!)

Of course throughout this time I was continuing each day to take my Symprove. I must admit although the whole ‘not going to the toilet’ for a few days was very frustrating; I really do still believe that the Symprove helped me during this time. After my evening meal I got over my fullness & bloating so much quicker than I usually do. If that is all it helps me with then it is worth it in my opinion. However, I truly believe that each week I am gradually seeing lots of subtle changes. As I mentioned in Week 2, these subtle changes are making me feel more positive, & this positivity, I think, is helping my second brain…my gut!

So… the second part of the week, my body seems to have for no apparent reason undergone a transformation. I have actually been going to the toilet on a regular basis, every single day. I mean it’s only 3 days in a row, so for most that is no reason to celebrate, but for me…!!! As always this has made me much happier. I have also as a result been much hungrier the last few days, only an hour or so after breakfast my stomach is rumbling!

Happy Gluten Free Shopping Trips!

I must admit the weeks aren’t always easy, but moving towards a goal of improved well being is definitely a far better week than just sitting back and feeling sorry for myself! As a human when things go well… I want them to continue to go well. So for this week to start fairly negatively with no toilet trips did make me think.. ‘why me?!’

However, I am so happy that the week improved as it went on yet again. It has made me realise that when things seem to be sliding downhill, at least I can be reassured that my IBS is just having an off day and there will be better days to come. I am really looking forward to next week, hopefully with even more positives than week 3. By the end of next week it will be my first month on Symprove complete too, woo!

I have definitely come to realise that as things have started to improve my brain almost forgets how bad some days have really been! A task for next week is definitely to not take feeling better even 2% for granted. Enjoy every minute of feeling great. & on the less good days look forward to the next good one & work towards it.

Please feel free to let me know how your IBS is treating you this week. If you have any questions or just want a good old chat you can leave a comment below, or on Facebook/Twitter.
