    I just found out what was wrong with me recently. I had tried some herbal tea and felt nauseated, bloated, gut pain, and diarrhea. A sparkfriend mentioned that some herbal teas have barley in them and I looked on the box and this one does. So I was still consuming gluten.

    I think eating less helps too. I feel better when I don't eat so I know that something I'm eating is often causing me problems.

    Most of the time I only worked part time after I had my son because it is hard to deal with too many schedules in a home. At some point the schools start up extracurricular activities and then you spend a lot of time in the car chauffeuring them.

    I do have an occasional day without problems but mostly I have problems every day. Some days are much worse than others. I have made all sorts of changes and it doesn't seem to help as much as I had hoped. I assume, like you do, that I probably have to be fairly strict to get it under control. I am thinking that I have to give up all gluten/grains, dairy, and soy at least. I can't use sugar alcohols either. When I do eliminate all of these things I do a lot better but it isn't all that easy to do. I can't eat out. I have to fix 3 meals a day. I get bored. I'm sure you can relate.

    Thanks. I see you as very resourceful woman and as someone who makes thoughtful decisions. I think you basically need the right break now to get back to pursuing some of your other goals which you have deferred in order to be a good mom. I'm not saying that mother's who work are bad mom's but having a mom at home until a child enters school is the ideal and it requires sacrifices which you have made. I hope you can find time for you soon to decide what path you want your life to take. emoticon

    Thanks for your comment and you are always a wealth of information! I always forget about youtube, I've been watching a lot of documentaries about food lately and i definitely am getting the picture that i need to be eating more fruits and veggies, with an emphasis of veggies.

    Thanks for your support girly, i always appreciate it! how have you been?
