Hi, I'm 17 and have just been diagnosed with stress related IBS. I'm going through exams at the moment so this is a particularly stressful time for me.
I'm really struggling with finding ways to cope and have found myself missing out on doing things I really enjoy. For example, I'm in a band and had to miss a gig because my symptoms just got so bad.
I was just wondering if there's anyone out there that has been living with IBS for a while and can give me some advice and tips on how to live a normal life. I'm still getting my head around it and am struggling to remain calm (which is obvioulsy not helping the situation).
