Holiday time

Hi, any tips on what to pack to take on holiday please, incase I go IBS/migraine flare up crazy , I'm not too bad at mo but I'm starting to worry about going so ile prob make myself worse if I dont be careful, instead of being happy about it I'm getting anxious its 10 days away ๐Ÿ˜ฃ,

  1. Well, I always take Imodium with me. My gastroenterologist said I can take up to 4 a day! I haven't needed that many, but I sure near came close on a couple of road trips. I always bring spare underwear like it's nobody's business; better to be safe than sorry! If you're going by car, I would recommend a collapsible toilet. You can buy them on amazon. They fold out and can accept any type of plastic bag. Better to have that as an option on a long ride than a very uncomfortable alternative. I bring water, ginger ale, and ritz crackers. I try fasting on road trips, but these are my go-tos to get necessary sustenance down. I hope you have a fantastic trip! Traveling is a real bummer, but the destination is always worth it ๐Ÿ˜€

    1. thank you x

  2. You're so welcome! Where are you planning on going? Vacations are the best ๐Ÿ’œ ~ Sawyer (team member)

    1. I'm going to salou on the Costa Dorado I'm flying

    2. I've been there and it was amazing! I hope you have a great holiday. 😀 Something that helps me is accepting that I'm anxious about travelling and being away from home, rather than trying to suppress these feelings. But then also remind myself that even though I'm nervous, and things might not go perfectly, I'm still allowed to be excited and enjoy it.

  3. Karina that's the best way to look at it as it's not going to go away because we are on holiday ๐Ÿ˜ก

    1. we usually go with family but just me n him this time, been to salou a few times now, we usually do torremollinos but will do that around august/September

    2. That sounds lovely! Do you have any specific activities planned, or mostly just relaxing? Karina (team member)

  4. we will got to Barcelona for a day and another day port aventura theme park then usual holiday stuff x

    1. I'm so glad to hear that you were able to enjoy your vacation! I agree, feeling 100% okay with IBS rare. All the best, Karina (team member)

    2. I'm so glad that you enjoyed it despite not feeling 100%! If that's not big vacation energy than IDK what is! I hope you were able to recover quickly after you returned home. Setting and back to it! ~ Sawyer (team member)
