Hi. Does anybody else get absolutely sick to death of trying new thing after new thing to try and cure their ibs without much success?
I have had ibs for nearly 14 years. I have tried evey diet going, loads of supplements, which have cost me a fortune. I've paid hundreds of pounds for private comprehensive stool tests. I paid a lot of money for advice from a functional medicine practitioner for a month.
I actually think I am depressed with it all. My motivation to do anything is very low. I drag myself to work everyday and have to really force myself to even do the house work at the weekends.
I usually go to the gym every day before work but im even thinking what's the point as I haven't had that good sense of wellbeing for a long time.
Most of the time I am feeling hugely frustrated and angry with it all.
I feel like I have lost the fight but the thought of another 14 years of this makes me feel like I cant cope.
I know I need to refocus and start telling myself more positive things.
I think I will start to focus on one day at a time rather than overwhelming myself with the thought of years.
Apologies for the self pity party but I find it helpful to use this site to offload my frustration.
Thanks for listening.
