Hello - only signed up a few weeks ago. I have always had variations of pain and ibs c since teenager than last year had awful diarrhea attack in response to ice cream that end up with me passing blood briefly. Had colonoscopy and got all clear 'just' ibs in new and exciting form and since then basically suffer with all the wonderful text book symptoms of ibs d and can't go near any milk or even lactose free products to avoid prolonged flares. My body does specialise in 15 min warning, triggered by nothing (unless air?!) D attacks with vasovagal reaction.
Anyway I now have first boyfriend since last year's horror, have only hinted at 'stomach' problems but knew it wouldn't last. He's due round in a couple of hours and just had 'attack' and have decided I need to confess / explain all. Would rather eat the contents of my bin then do this as so embarrassing to me but can't see how I can proceed with relationship without newly aquired bathroom talents showing off at some point, and he's quite tactile and affectionate so not sure how quickly I could explain while making the dash for the loo.
Please if anyone sees this in the next hour wish me luck and if anyone interested I will update tomorrow with the outcome and probably a story of how to explain ibs to a wide eyed innocent. Fingers crossed x
