To coincide nicely with the fact that I decided last night to see a doctor today if my gut didn't improve, my gut has improved. This probably has a lot to do with Hazel and I clarifying some things between us that were hurting our long-distance relationship at the moment, and finding some new things to do together over the phone (we're reading each other books, which is great fun). IBS is often stress-triggered, and it's no secret that I worry pretty hard when I think I'm making Hazel miserable. Suggestions of other fun telephone/webcam things to do on a regular basis are welcome - while books are considerably more varied than battlestar every week, I don't want to get stuck in a rut again.
Nevertheless, if the pain gets worse during the day, I'm going to call my doc, and get seen.
Despite feeling somewhat better, I'm not actually less tired yet. Oh well - it'll come, in time :/
EDIT: Scratch that, I'm staying home and I've made a doctor's appointment.
