    Often the aftermath of digestive problems (which continues the problems) is that the good bacteria go out of whack, so taking some sort of probiotic can be helpful. I've never noticed much of a difference with Activia, but the product that works for me is Danactive (I think it contains higher levels of probiotics), which I've been using for years.

    Kefir is another good product if you can find it. Sort of a drinkable yogurt. Of course they have all kinds of drinkable yogurts now in the yogurt section which is probably why our store stopped carrying kefir.

    I bought Activia when it first came out as there was a really good coupon for it. I don't recall it being any different than other yogurts with active cultures.

    Ellen's comments about the good bacteria is a good point. An overactive digestive system can wash them out and a strong antibiotic taken for any infection elsewhere in the body can kill them off. Eating yogurt with live active cultures is important.

    I got some activia today and will give it a try. Someone also told me to drink buttermilk with active cultures.

    Interestingly enough, I was doubled over in pain today and also knew my blood sugar was getting out of whack. I ate the yogurt and the stomach pain went away. So I'm wondering what the heck is going on that eating has seemed to kill the pain. But it worked twice. So I'm guessing now that if my stomach is cramping that maybe it needs food in it? I don't know. I just know I'm sick of this!

    myrosiedog: I'm so sorry to hear that you have been having so much trouble with your IBS. That must be very frustrating indeed! . I hope you find even small things that help you out. As a suggestion, could you possibly try some accupuncture? I know they sometimes can help with a lot of organ problems.

    My question today seems a bit mundane, but does anyone have a great idea of how to hang/store winter scarves? I have several, of different lengths and weights, and whenever I try to get one, the others all fall off the hanger.

    You could use one of those revolving tie racks . That might help. I am happy to say I have no need for winter scarves anymore .

    I have a lot of winter scarves, chiffon scarves, and shawls. The winter scarves we hang on pegs inside the side door we use almost exclusively. The dress scarves are folded on my chest of drawers in my bedroom and the shawls are folded on a shelf.

    I'd bet if you went to one of those closet organizer stores that they would have the exact thing that you needed for hanging the scarves...or at least, you could get an idea on how to make one. Personally, I think I'd prefer to put mine someplace flat.

    Rub the scarves on your cats. The resultant static will enable you to stick the scarves to the wall. Science triumphs once again!

    You forgot about the band-aids you will need when the cats decide to whip your behind after you do that!
