How do you manage in situations when you have a flare up and can't access a toilet easily? This is my main fear about my ibs and the worry of it contributes and causes the majority of my symptoms.
For example next week I have to take my cat to the vets. I've never noticed a customer toilet in there and even if there is one I can't leave my cat to use it. So the impending worry of this situation is already on my mind and I know when it comes I'll probably have a flare up. The same thing happened to me the other week when I took my son to our new doctors although luckily they have a toilet.
I seriously need to stop giving so much importance to this issue in my mind but I just can't help it. Once I'm out of the vets I know the urge will probably go but waiting for appointments like that always sets me off! It's one of my key triggers. So I sound crazy?! I feel it
