  2. Your Story
    Chronic Illnesses have always reminded me of gremlins within your head and body. These gremlins are childish and bored so they scratch and graffiti the walls. It hurts and it's frustrating but what the goblins don't know is that the walls they are drawing and scratching on are learning. They are...

    Hi everyone, I've been experiencing IBS - C for over 3 months now. I've been using Dulcolax and Movicol including doing two days of the intense version where you take 6-8 sachets in a day. Nothing has helped. I feel so so uncomfortable and hugely bloating permanently. Before and after eating...

    Hi Everyone, I was first diagnosed with IBS-D when I was about 18/19 (10 years ago). Shortly after, at 20, I became pregnant.

  14. General Discussion
    I'm sad it's come to this, because I really didn't want to have to rant on the internet about my problems, but I've tried everything else. I also feel like it's good to type it all out there, as a record, so that if I do end up dying, someone in my family can read this and use it to sue the...

    Hello everyone. My name is Mike. I am 32 years old and from New York. I have posted here before and everyone I had the pleasure of talking to was so helpful.
