Hi, I'm new to this site and never done anything like this before, but feel totally at my lowest point with my ibs at the moment, had it for 25 years after an incident and like many others started with gastroenteritis. Since that point I missed a lot of school, and have struggled with job option. Over the years I've tried all the medication from anti spasmodic to anti anxiety, I struggle every single day with symptoms of gas, bloating, stomach pains, sometimes up to 10 visits to toilets,.
I've now got no social life during to the stress and worry of being caught short whilst out. I've list most of my friends and the others are getting frustrated at why I can't push myself to try harder! I wish it was that easy, after all these years and how I've felt in certain situations and circumstances I feel like I will never over come this and hate the way I'm living at the moment, sorry for the ramble, just need to get it off my chest and try and find a way out of this
