Does anyone else have accidents? I don't care how close to a bathroom I am, I'm not close enough. I'm afraid to go anywhere, I can't go out to eat, I've had accidents at work and had to go home and change clothes before. I haven't found any one food that triggers these incidents and my doctor has given me medicine to calm my stomach but it makes me so sleepy I can't take it and work.

Help!!

Yup, I find myself pretty much having to stay home all of the time. Missing out on outings with friends because I am too afraid I will get sick. My friends love to go out to eat and I always have to make an excuse as to why I can not go. Road trips are another thing I use to be into, but now I can not even go far from home. Very depressing.

I used to have the same problem, only with me, i have very extreme ocd, and my ibs was VERY bad, so it didn't just get in my pants.. it was all over the bathroom, And then with my ocd, i would have to shower for hours and still not feel clean for days... I found something that really helps me though, it's called questran, it's this weird powder you put in water, it tastes kinda orangey and feels like sand, but it works!! If you haven't already tried it, do it! Give it a week or 2 to fully work, and be done with ibs! Plus it doesn't make you sleepy. I hope it helps you!

Almost had one when I was in a car. If I hadn't concentrated and squeezed my "lower" muscles, I would've created a mess. My panic comes from that almost-accident. I would have ruined a car forever and never left the house again.

That is a very scary thought, indigo. If you tend to get the urge in the car often, you could put a towel (blanket or whatever) on your seat as a backup.. just in case. Maybe the extra protection will ease the anxiety a bit.
