Does anybody else feel as though no body else understands Ibs? Apart from the people who suffer with it of course. My friend sometimes makes jokey comments about “it being in my head”. She said it was a joke but I don’t find it funny considering how much I suffer on a day to day basis.i also feel very awkward when I eat round my boyfriends house. I feel bad to not eat some of the food that I know could set me off and I don’t want to come across as rude! But I feel as though they just wouldn’t understand it. People think that it can just be contorlled by a diet but whilst this may help a little ;The flare ups happen no mater what. I’m just frustrated and fed up. It feels like a daily battle of me praying that I don’t get pain today.
What’s your experiences when it comes to eating out and explaining Ibs to people you are close with?
