dh suffers IBS and says alcohol definately aggravates it. Do feel sorry for you as I have it, but mildly.

Yep, can understand that. Are you going on holiday?

Yeah I know. I find wine is a nightmare as it is so acidic. What about spirits? I have reverted to vodka as I find it doesn't affect me as much.

CB radios lol!!!! Will be <whispers> 37!!! I am getting so old I keep having to work out how old I am! Nah, you don't have to alter your alcohol consumption - just be flexible . I can't drink wine either any more - gives me chronic cystitis. The pleasure is just not worth the pain. Last month I ended up in out-patients at midnight... stick to Southern Comfort.

I'm not on holiday so what is my excuse?

I'm just a complete wimp. The hospitals probably have a ban on me now... I got cystitis when I was holiday in Wales in December and ended up in A&E there too... they are going to have posters up in all A&E wards about me refusing entry soon!

Keep off the wine and anything acidic. No pure fruit juices either. I wish I was on holiday. Never been camping - you are so brave! My girls are desperate to try it.

Heh heh. You have made me laugh tonight (although obviously not laughing at you retching - am full of heart wrenching sympathy...) Are you going to be at the meet up??
