Tina, I have had to go to a convention every year and appear on stage...if you can believe that one. Can you imagine my stomach and the stage at the same time??? oy
When I go away and have to stay in the same room with someone I dont know well...I just explain to them that I have IBS and what they may have to look foward to... I have not had one person give me a hard time...and usually they know a family member or a friend with the same thing. I have been very lucky in that respect. You can get the papaya concentrate at any health food store..make sure it is pure with nothing added. I use about 1/2 to 1 cup full per quart size liquid...I say liquid because I usually use it with seltzer and cranberry juice is a refreshing drink..and keeps me from drinking soda. Try not to worry about the business trip..(I know thats a hard one to do). I always worry about the business trips and they ALWAYS turn out just great...
