Hi guys, I am a 22 year old female from NZ and have had IBS for a year. I was a bit shocked when my gastroenterologist said that there were no support groups at all for IBS in NZ, considering how many people have it and the effects that it has on quality of life. Would love to get in touch with others that suffer so that we can have a wee moan to each other every now and then so that our loved ones don't have to try and understand all the time. I set up a face book page so please add yourself so we can stay in touch and possibly even meet up. Cheers, Pip
