Hi,I'm in Adelaide and have just been properly diagnosed, but have had symptoms since I was a child. I have an 8 year old child who is also showing ibs symptoms so I am going to put us both on the same diet. I've just bought Heather Van Vorous' book on eating for ibs and looking forward to changing our life hopefully!

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
