I thought I’d start out with my memory of some of my early visits to Drs, both alternative and “normal”. There were so many (I was “Dr.-hopping”) and so many medications and tests that I will have to ramble a little. Twenty five years is a very long time. This little snippet covers some early theories: candida/yeast, amitriptyline (tricyclic antidepressant) and flagyl (antibiotic). And it also introduced me to what some Docs thought of IBS back in the 1980’s…not much, it appeared. I couldn’t wrap my head around the fact that nothing out there provided me with any relief. Still can’t, but I accept it more than I did back then.
