I’ve come to realize that there are MANY people out there who have stomach issues every minute of everyday. Here I am thinking that I was the only one! PHEW! It seems like everyone has aches but chooses not to talk about them. I can understand that, especially when it has to do with our bathroom habits and what goes on in the toilet… it’s not such a comfortable topic.
I get it!
The problem is that if no one talks about it then we all think we are alone. I’m here to let you know that you’re NOT alone and that the person sitting next to you on the bus or train is probably feeling somewhat of an ache just like you… they just aren’t as open about it as me!
Personally, I’ve had stomach issues for my entire life (not something to be proud of!) and I figure that the more open I am about them, the more information I can learn from others about their experiences on the matter.
Believe me, it helps a whole lot to know that I’m not the only one who feels the pain. For those of you who have that constant ache or bloating I encourage you to be a little bit more open about talking about it with others. Maybe it won’t be the random person sitting next to you on the bus, but I would start with friends.
Find out what they feel and how they are dealing with it. Maybe they have a wonderful doctor that they can recommend or an eastern form of medicine that they have tried. Once you start being honest that you yourself don’t feel well, others will begin to open up.
I wish you luck on your journey to health. Remember, opening up about your problem is your first step to feeling better.
