Yea I have been temporarily diagnosed with IBS and I have to have a strict diet too. Like you said, it's hard to be strict all the time so sometimes
I have a food I shouldn't and suffer through the pain.
The problem with kicking the booze addiction, as for most people, is she was still addicted to sugar. My Mom always liked sweets but it increased
after her drinking, so that didn't help either.
I've learned a lot about how to take better care of myself from what my Mom has/hasn't done.
It's good to learn from our parents and relatives. If your mother has any sisters or brothers, try asking them about what they eat if they are not
showing symptoms of this. Since intolerances are sometimes genetic related this might be something to consider. My daughter has spastic Colitis and
she has problems with pork and milk. My sister had problems and had to have about a foot of her intestine removed. I get the pain in my abdomen
sometimes but that is related to AIP porphyria, if I avoid triggers I have very few problems. This is a problem from northern Sweden, Finland, and
Maybe Norway. Diet can easily control this from ever giving a person a problem. Because it is supposedly so rare, nobody tests for it. The thing
is, I think it is not really that rare, I just think that the traditional diet was formed to keep this genetic problem from being a problem. Now, it
is called acute intermittant porphyria, so if you never screwed up with your eating, you never need to go to the doctor because of symptoms. I think
it is actually common amongst these people but they just don't have problems unless doctors give them medicines.
