I'm 16 years old and contracted IBS last year. I've looked up tons of websites to see how I can cope with the symptoms and I've seen 5 doctors and 2 private doctors who all tell me that same thing, 'that I probably have a bit of IBS', apparently it can be stress related but I've always been a very tense individual but I'm getting really worried about my condition because in summer I seemed to be improving but very recently I have had extremely bad diarrhea. I've had to keep several food diaries and in correlation to my symptoms I've had to cut; dairy, fish, nuts ,most sugary products, some meats and spicy food out of my diet and honestly I'm getting sick of it because no matter how hard I try to avoid my symptoms they still come back. Recently I've only been eating bread and simple foods such as porridge and rice but I'm still getting diarrhea. My conditions are getting so bad that I can't go into school, my friends are suspicious as to why I'm ill half the time, my grades are plummeting and in the past year I've considered suicide over 50 times. I NEED HELP. I have no idea what's wrong with me anymore and I need someone to give me advice anything will do I just can't keep living like this any more.
