Whining Wednesday - The Crank Edition

Yes I would like a little cheese with this whine:

At the risk of sharing way too much, (is that even possible on the internet?) Irritable Bowel Syndrome is rearing its ugly head in my life again, and quite frankly is ruining eating for me. So far the foods I have eliminated in an effort to stop the madness include: Eggs (what's NOT for breakfast) in any form. Corn in it's purest form, like in the kernel, which stinks because I love corn on the cob. But since it is the one food that comes out looking exactly the way it goes in, I am wondering if it has any nutritional value at all. Salad. Specifically leafy greens, celery, or any source in INSOLUBLE FIBER. Because, say it with me now, it is insoluble. Which my colon takes issue with.

So, food that is normally considered good for you, eggs, corn, salad, yeah, I am not eating them. I generally also avoid all sources of soy, because soy, especially in the form of tofu, tries to kill me.

In other news, I have developed a raging ragey rage against bras. You heard me, ladies undergarments of the bra variety. Especially in the hot weather. Itchy, hot, awful. Combine that physical discomfort with my colon issues and you might say I am generally kind of CRANKY.

So, if anyone has any suggestions for solutions to either issue, I am open to hearing them. Except from sickos and spam bots. You all can keep your comments to yourselves.

Have you tried removing your gall bladder?

Let the puppies fly free! I never wear a bra when I'm not at work!

Have you tried eliminating gluten? It makes my IBS really angry.

Seriously? Coobies for your boobies. They. Are. The.Best.

The other issue? I had IBS for years, then 5 years ago gave up wheat/gluten. Intestines healed, I feel SO MUCH BETTER.
