Confessions of an Imodium Addict

Welcome to my new blog-Confessions of An Imodium Addict. This is my journey through Fibromyalgia and IBS. If you are one of the millions of people who suffer from either IBS or Fibromyalgia, then you know the day-to-day struggles that we go through. Sometimes it's hard to even get out of bed in the morning or when you're having an IBS flare-up you are stuck in the house watching as the world passes you by. You are no longer the adventurer, climbing mountains, exploring the world and living life. Your world consists of pills, doctor's appointments and pain. It doesn't have to be this way. You can have health problems and still live a rewarding and full life. Hopefully you will come along this journey with me as we explore the world and learn that no matter what life throws at us, we can do anything and not let IBS or Fibromyalgia define who we are. I am a person with a full agenda and I can't let my pain get in the way.
