Hey guys first post here. so I am yet to be diagnosed but after the doctor suggested it was probably IBS I've been searching online and am pretty confident he's right as I've had basically every symptom. So after this I've been reading up about the condition and it seems to be anything but not serious with so many stories about it controlling people's lives. Now that I think about it I've had symptoms most of my life but this is the worst flair up with diarreah aswell. I have been a long time sufferer of anxiety and used to have ocd which I am out of counselling for and then finally feeling good. Now all of a sudden this hits and all my plans of going on adventures and doing new activities with my new found mind set seem to be over before they begin. I simply cannot let my life revolve around a toilet I think I'd rather soil myself. Can anyone give me some more experienced input please. Is it too early to start imagining the worst?
