The most embarrassing moment was when we went to the zoo with our children. One was seven and the other 5 years old at the time. The previous night I experienced a stomach ache and in the morning I also had to go a few times to the bathroom. It was only a 40-minute drive, yet to be sure I checked where the nearest bathrooms were along the way. I also had downloaded a map of the zoo so I knew the exact locations of the bathrooms. Besides packing a bag for the children, I also packed myself a bag. I never left the house without clean underwear and pants.
B-line for the bathrooms
The journey went fine, but it was very busy at the zoo. We had to walk a long time from the parking lot to the entrance. There was a long line for the entrance. I felt the need to go to the bathroom enhance but I bit through it, but sweat was forming on my brow. Once inside, my husband, our children and I went to the nearest bathroom but there was a long line too…
The woman who had a trouser accident
There I was standing, with tears in my eyes. I decided to explain my problem to the first woman in line. She was kind enough to let me go first but it was too late. The need to go was too much. Just before I opened the door of the bathroom stall I felt it coming. And my bag with clean clothes and other necessities was still with my husband.
My cheeks were red with embarrassment but I walked out of the stall towards my husband. He immediately understood and took me without blinking to the family bathroom, where I could change myself into some fresh clothes. The entire day I spend watching around me to see if I saw the women who were standing in line for the bathroom that morning. To see if they recognized me, stared at me, the woman who had a trouser accident. I decided that I could not bear it any longer.
“I had little faith, they have checked me so many times, I even saw a nutritionist. What could IBD Free Life for me what they could not?”
I really suffered from inflammation and bacteria.
Via Facebook, I came into contact with IBD Free Life. I had little faith that this could actually work. They have checked me so many times before, I even saw a nutritionist. What could IBD Free Life for me what they could not? But after an intensive intake, stool and blood tests they told me that I actually have an inflamed intestine. Besides that, it turned out that I was suffering from a very nasty type of bacteria. The combination of the two caused my complaints.
Regained my freedom with the right nutrition
With IBD Free Life I learned which types of nutrition have an effect on the quality of my intestines and which nutrition types I should not eat at all. I was prescribed supplements to boost my immune system. That way my body could fight the bacteria and the inflammation on its own.
We are about 3 months along and I finally can leave the house without having to check where the nearest bathroom is. Without bringing a bag with clean supplies. That way I have regained so much freedom!
