    I'm Effexxorx, and as you can see from my tags, I suffer various mental illnesses. I've had IBS-C for about eight years now, but used to live a so-called regular life, though I don't know what that means any longer. I did have an eating disorder brought about by GIs getting sick of me and...

    I'm 29-years-old with IBS-D. I've been dealing with it for about five years. I've visited this forum hundreds of times but this is my first post. I am becoming scared and need to unburden myself.

  8. Mental Health
    My question is, can long term eating disorders cause IBS? I have had a rather long term ED, and everyone has always told me that I have IBS because I trashed my own digestive system. I'm happy to accept this as the truth (it wouldn't be the only thing in my life destroyed by my ED), but if it...

  14. Working and Careers
    I have struggled to maintain a job for over 20 years. Even when I pushed myself to go to work, and took pain killers to get me through the day, I would still always require a sick day every one to two weeks. It made me unreliable in my employers eyes so eventually my hours would be cut and given...
  15. IBS Diarrhea (IBS-D)
    Hey everyone, Has anyone developed an eating disorder due to their IBS. I am pretty sure I have headed down that path. I am not eating enough and I am continuously losing weight because of it.
