I have been suffering with IBS since 2011, at first it came as a shock and I had to change my whole lifestyle which I enjoyed (playing in a band, going out every weekend and touring). I'll skip the next 3 years now, but I do know my triggers however I can't come to terms with how much its changed my life. I've had to turn down 3 jobs because I've missed training because of my anxiety and IBS.
I'm just sick of it taking over my life, I've stopped going out and when I do I block myself up on Imodium just as a precaution. I know this is a really bad habit but it seems to be the only way I can go out and not worry about having an episode.
My stomach seems to be getting worse, I can't eat certain meals I used to be fine with. I'm starting to get daily bloating and almost from every meal.
I just can't see my life getting any better, I feel like I'm going to spend the rest of my life in my bedroom.
If anyone has experience these same feelings please message me or even just some advice.
