Let's talk about it. No shame here. Who else is dying? I haven't been taking stool softeners (not good to take them long term), but I have upped my fruits and veggies and water to a gallon a day to no avail. I go every day, but combined with the hemmorhoids (yeah pregnancy/delivery!) it is so difficult and painful. I have a lot of GI discomfort throughout the day, too.
So, who wants to commiserate? What's working for you? I'm thinking of picking up some Benefiber at the store this week.
