How much longer?

I'm doing really well so far and the symptoms are decreasing day by day.  The only really annoying one that has stuck around consistently has been the runs.  I haven't been taking Imodium because its not causing me to run to the bathroom every 10 minutes, but every time I go, its nothing but water.

I was hoping that this part about it would be done by now...

This is one side effect that I'm really hoping to get done with...

Matt,

When you are up to feeling like it try some high protien foods.  Meat, eggs, watermellon, ect.    After you slow the diareaha down, perhaps you'll feel more like eating.  You really do need it for energy.   Just my thoughts,  take care.

Don't forget to replace your electrolytes with gastrolyte or sports drinks.

I'll probably take some Imodium.  As for diet, it hasn't changed much.  Just a lot less.  Food just doesn't look all that great right now.  Its been a crash diet from hell...  I'm down over 20lbs.  I'm still eating, but not much.  Still drinking lots of water, though, so I'm not going to get dehydrated.

Its either going to be the Imodium or a cork.  Imodium sounds a little better.

  Go ahead a take one immodium so your system can have a rest.  I know you want to get the toxins out but sometimes it does more harm than good.    
Take care
