Long story short, it has pretty much ruined my life. Avoid any kind of excitement, enterprise, relations etc.. It's as if (not 'as if' actually, as that's the fact) my body needs to act out in some way when faced with anxiety. It was nausea when i was a little kid, then it turned into this. Have no strength to cope with difficulties or any unknown whatever, that life may throw at me , that others tend to even enjoy. No life left, though. Anyway,
I didn't really want to know the truth up until now, because it's too demoralizing, but it doesn't really matter anymore. Question is, if the ibs-d is triggered, does that follow the fact that the digestive system of that person can not make use of the nutrients he's got/whatever he's eaten the way a healthy body is supposed to be able to?
And, if it (ibs-d) is under control, say, for a stretch of time when the symptoms disappeared, can we assume, that our body takes of our food whatever -and to the normal degree- it's supposed to take?
Thank you for going into truoble of reading and answering this.
