Sick and Tired......again

....of being sick and tired.  My evil twin inside me is causing a ruckus today and boy is he having a great time in there!!  Kept me up all night "partying".  So, lucky me, gets to switch to a liquid diet and let my intestines rest awhile.........yay! (insert sarcasm here)

Has anyone tried this?  I thought I'd give it a try.  I got it in capsule form and tried just 1 a day and it actually seemed to help with the frequency of going to the bathroom.  Now, for me, I only have a few feet of intestines left, so I don't know how it'll be for anyone else, but maybe everyone should give it a try, at least once (or twice).  The bottle says up to 3 times a day, but I think for us Crohnies, maybe 1 might be just right.  It did cause a bit of gas and bloating, but nothing out of the ordinary.  Try it, it can't hurt.

gas pain

Good lord!  What the hell is with all this gas lately.  I never used to get it like this before.  Feels like from the movie "Aliens" and I'm waiting for it to come ripping out from my gut.  Not doing anything different as far as eating and drinking are concerned, so I'm at a loss.  The gas I can handle (except my wife can't) it's the pain that goes with it that is a little on the "Holy Shit!" side of things.  Oh well, maybe it's my evil twin finally deciding to make himself known.
