How do people cope having to travel to and from work with ibs. I am going to have to change location of work which will mean instead of being 10 minutes from home I will be over an hour away. At the moment I can manage and don't need to get up too early but with a 6 am start travelling an hour away I will need to get up at 3 am at the latest to sort myself out and calm down enough to get out. And then won't get home until gone 7pm. I honestly don't think. I can cope with the stress.
