I’ve recently been diagnosed with IBS D and I am struggling to get used to all the changes! I feel it is slowly taking over my life!
When eating at home, I am usually okay - I feel most comfortable knowing that I am close to a toilet and can quickly leave the situation if need be. I’ve learnt what I can and can’t eat now!
My main issue is when I eat out.
I have developed such an anxiety about eating out as I am constantly worried that I am going to need the toilet quickly. The minute I sit down I am on the look out for how far away the toilet is, and how busy the restaurant is. I always work myself up about it! My worst fear is there being a queue for the toilet!
I know it is all in my head, and I know that overthinking things doesn’t help the situation, but does anyone have any tips on how I might de-stress? I am off to Paris in the new year and I am already worrying about how easy it’ll be finding a toilet, especially when needed quickly!
Thanks everyone ☺️
