I totally feel like this, I feel like my family doesn't understand the severity of the IBS and how much it affects daily life. And I'm too embarrassed to tell my friends the full truth of what I'm going through. You're not alone. I think at this point I'm just looking for anything that might ease the symptoms to a manageable level so I can get back to living life.

I am glad I have joined today as I have told strangers on here that I suffer with IBS. I know it's better to tell people but I just couldn't tell friends or family.

Im 16, had IBS for many years but more so the past 2 years. I used to do sport, have a great social life and always enjoyed a drink. I am now almost 17 and have quit all sports (only do exercise by myself) and barely tell anyone about the awful condition. I have tried everything!. I have had ll the tests in the world and still everyone tells me to suck it up. I am fairly good at managing it. Cut out all dairy, gluten and i have a very low fodmap diet but yet i still feel sick so often. You aren't as i hate having to explain to people about the true IBS e.g. the school aspect, morning, sluggish gut, too fast acting gut and all that. My parents are the only people who truly understand. My main advice to cope with IBS is if you're not already then start doing moderate exercise, this wull both improve your mental and internal health. If i dont exercise i find myself constipated daily and always feeling sick. I am currently going through a bad episode of IBS and im hoping it goes away soon.
