So.. make your plans. IBS can impact your social life about as much as you let it. You can make the choice to go out despite it. Prepare yourself in case your stomach acts up. But "expect" to have a fun and good time. POsitive thinkig is critical. Bring any meds .. wear protection.... etc. Prepare yourself any way you can and watch your food choices. (Skip the greasy fatty junk food.) Prepare by bringing extra underwear or whathave you..... whatever will make you feel more comfortable.And most of all... think positive thoughts. You already see where negative thinking gets you... stuck at home and not enjoying your social life.Read this:http://www.ibsgroup.org/node/515Now.. do you see how important it is to have good thinking??Treat your bloating with using an anti-gas product WITH your meals as well as perhaps getting some digestive enzymes to help your body digest things easier. But to stay in and be miserable is your choice. Try treating your symptoms and going on despite them!
I would love nothing more than to make plans with friends without thinking about how my bowels are going to be that day.
Well of course it is back! It is a chronic illness! That's how they work. But focus on HOW you felt once you stopped the crying and get up and got ON with your day.. You said you felt better.. FOCUS on that instead of being miserable. How you feel about your life is completely your choice.Get to work managing your symptoms by doing trial and error with various treatments... diet changes, meds, supplements, probiotics, relaxation techniques, etc... Most people find using a variety of treatment options together is what works best for them.Choose to focus on the more positive things in your life... not the negative.
I'm sooooooooooo fed up! I know i have to think positively and all this malarky but I've been doing that the last 2 days, instead of sitting in bed crying I got up and dressed and did my hair despite being in pain and pottered around the house and mentally felt a lot better, last night i actually felt fine and I woke up feeling fine and then all of a sudden out of nowhere the pain reappeared and IT'S BACK!
