My Absence

Posted by Gena , 17 January 2016 · 2209 views

As you may have noticed from my lack of presence, not only on here bu also on youtube. The main reason is that my IBS-A is now in a state of Constipation. I have been drinking water with some probiotics I originally found at whole foods but purchased online and add to a simple bottle, which I love!. The name is GoLive and I am using the Spa flavor that ta...


Youtube Videos and Motivation

Posted by Gena , 23 November 2015 · 981 views

Hello lovelies!
So I have been on my youtube channel under the name genaibs but since the month of October I have had a hard time making videos. It is not for lack of content, as you all know, every day is an adventure, it is more so for the intensity of my stomach pain, nausea and mental comprehension and determination. 
I am doing better in...


Bloating is getting out of control

Posted by Gena , 29 July 2015 · 5253 views

I have been making youtube videos for a few weeks now, it acts like a form of therapy. I have been having a flare up for months and my bloating has peaked to the point that I cant fit into my pants (my weight is the same), anything touching my stomach hurts. I am out of breath, exhausted, nauseated, constipated and I get full fast.
I have tried magnesium,...


Of course, a date with my man comes up and my ibs flares up

Posted by Gena , 24 June 2015 · 4406 views

I am in the process of uploading my third video (btw I actually found old videos from when I first found out I had IBS. I had to delete most of the videos because I looked awful lol), and I am beyond nauseated. 
I woke up this morning groggy, in slight pain but chalked it up to Texas allergies mixed with normal ibs ####. Throughout the day, wh...


Made my Second Video! While I was being flooded in my car

Posted by Gena , 22 June 2015 · 4298 views

I put up my second video today talking about how others should approach someone with IBS along with my best description of what if feels like for someone that does not have it.
It is so hard to describe to people and it is so hard to rationalize with other people. I recently had a panic attack because my personal life (friends, boyfriend/fiance, fa...

I need a clone!

Posted by Gena , 09 June 2015 · 2778 views

I typically have a tight circle of friends, I have been lying low at work, I've basically been trying to keep to myself since I am not feeling the hottest with my bloating.But the more secluded I want to be, the more people want to hang out.
I dont mind texting you, having a small facebook chat, but I have been in retail for 7 years and I don't car...


Emotions And IBS

Posted by Gena , 05 June 2015 · 2680 views

So I have had a bit of bad luck lately, normal life stuff, and while it has been tough and I feel like crying every 5 minutes, No one can tell unless I allow them too. 
Quick rundown of events (which may or may not have been on the last post): Work has been trying to push me over the edge, my fiance is basically ignoring me and is a ghost, fin...


Putting my dirty little secret out for the world

Posted by Gena , 02 June 2015 · 2453 views

I have been trying to battle my anxiety with having to tell people I have IBS and just straight up tell people I have it or if I notice, like at work because I am a cashier, people are buying certain products at one time that normal people don't tend to get. I am very cautious about how I approach the situation and if I give feedback, I don't know if they...


IBS Stress and Finals

Posted by Gena , 13 May 2015 · 3610 views

It is finals week and tomorrow I take two back to back finals on campus. It is normal to feel anxious and nervous before big events, but I have gotten to the point where I am in a constant state of panic and nervousness. I have had panic attacks almost daily within the last two weeks, my head hurts, I am  either starving or overly full. My bloating i...
