SJY,I am so happy I found this group. It makes me feel like I am not alone. Things have definatly changed.. I cannot wait for these drama filled years to be over.
AnxietyPrincess, I hope you are doing better and your school is doing better this year. I've been pouring over these forums today. I will probably write "my story" tomorrow, but just felt I had to write you. I had my first issues at the age of 14. I'm 51 now and boy how things have changed! I'm glad for you, and other young people, especially that there is this support group.

Camillachick,I hated school last year. Luckily the ###### of a teacher retired, but she comes back to sub. >:/ Z came back this year, but I keep my head held high because I'm better off without him. Every so often my stomach has really bad days like today, but for the most part the pain is dull anymore. (fingers crossed) Eventually, people will respect me. The teachers this year are sooo much better. The principle loves me so if I ever need anything I can go straight to him.
I remember high school and feeling rotten a lot of the time. And that was without having an illness that causes constant pain! High school can be horrible and petty. People are allowed to be awful and nothing happens to them. If you were in the real world going to a daily job, you would be able to file harassment claims against anyone that was making you feel unsafe emotionally and not respecting you as a person. If they didn't let up, eventually they'd be fired. But in schools teachers are the law of the land, have tenure and so on, and even students that bully are usually allowed to stay. At least that was how it went where I went to school. Don't give up. Keep trying to get the message out about any teacher or student that makes you feel bad about yourself. Maybe you will get some better results than I did. And remember that although it seems like a long time, eventually you will wind up spending your day someplace where people have learned to respect each other better.

Eowyne,Thank you so much! This year has been 200x better than last year. So far, the teacher that was bullying me retired from school, but Z did come back this year. I'm not afraid of him though. I keep my head held high and he hides his face around me. :] haha.. I tried a bunch of different stuff when it came to foods, but I did find out the closer to natural I came the better i was with my stomach. Sometimes I can stomach other things that aren't too "healthy." But what's a teen to do?!? I haven't figured out my trigger foods because something that sets it off today won't tomorrow.. ya know? But soy milk=<3<3<3 Today my stomach hass been the worst in a while.. hmm. My mom did talk to the teacher and she didnt listen and then lied to my mother. She also went to the principle and the guidance office. Now this year the principle and co principle love me. Guidance loves me. and the secretaries love me. Now I have all these connections and everyone (all my teachers and so forth..) know I have two different medical conditions that I may not be in school because of. :] Sadly I cannot sue the teacher even though she is a complete and utter ###### from heck. >:/ but I'll get further in life than she ever did.. right?? :] haha. welp email me anytime. I read my mom your comment and she loved it! Thanks so much again!
Oh dear! This is a common problem with IBS sufferers, nobody understands it. You are very lucky to have a support network around you like your bf and your best friend. Now about these adults, #### them! Honestly I mean it #### them!!! Your problems are very real and you have a real condition!!! A dehabilitating condition and whether they understand that or not is not your problem. You must eat though! Try bland foods, no pasta, only brown rice, no cream, no rich spicy foods and try to limit the grease as well - just for a little while to try and pin point whats making you sick - I'm not a doctor but I'm sure they've discussed this with you already and I'm only mentioning common trigger foods. Having missed so much school is definately going to be a problem but illness happens!!! To stop any "adults" in your school making comments have your mum write a confidential note to your head asking them to explain the situation and have them promise to keep silent for ethical reasons. Should your teacher take it upon herself to tell your class or anything like that she could be in serious trouble (And I'm extremely shocked that she isn't in serious trouble already as what she is doing is BULLYING you and I suggest you and your mother go and officially complain to the head about it and have the matter looked into!)Sod the friends that don't beleive you, they're not friends. I hope I've helped and I hope it gets better soon and get that teacher thing officialy looked into - she's caused you physical upset!!! If this were an employer you could sue!!!Anyway your not hopeless your just dealing with a difficult condition at a young age. Hope you feel better soon X x
