Hello, I'm 34 years old and have suffered with IBS for about 10 years. It's got to the point now where I'm practically a hermit! IBS rules my every decision, it's the first thing I think of when I get up and it's constantly on my mind all day. I have constant aches and pains in my stomach and if I know I am going anywhere I take Imodium. It's gets me so down that it's gotten this bad and I don't see how I can break the cycle. I worry about getting a bout of IBS and the worry makes the IBS flare up!!!!!!
