HI, I'm a 16 year old student, and I've recently been diagnosed with IBS. I'm on Mebeverine, which helps but with the pressures of school and my drained immune system I seem to pick up every bug and I'm off school a lot. I've just recovered from chicken pox, and now my IBS is really getting me down. It's so embarrassing and i'm really struggling. I don't know what to do. I've tried writing a food diary, and I've found pastas a bad idea, but its got to the point were I don't want to leave the house for the fear of being bad. I fell i'm letting my family down and I don't know how to get through it. I'm behind in work so I'm getting really stressed and that's not helping any, and I'm really emotional and tired a lot which means I often sleep as soon as I get home. If anyone can help me I'd really appreciate it. Thanks
