I'm 27 years old, and since the day I was born I've been back and forth to multiple doctors, specialists and been on my fair share of medications. I have been told I have nothing wrong with me, I have everything wrong with me or it's all just in my head. I have been dealing with daily diarrhea issues since the day I was born. As a child my mother had to deal with having a child that was constantly having diarrhea and now as an adult I've had to deal with having diarrhea up to ten times a day. I have become Anemic, have Blood Pressure issues and am chronically fatigued. In 2009 I had to have my Gallbladder removed after being rushed to the ER for severe pains that they initially believed to be my appendix bursting. I live in fear each and everyday that I'll have an accident in the car, at work, in a store or in a resturant. I am terrified of being bullied because of my disability of IBS-D, because people just do not understand how debilitating it truly is. My newest doctor has been working with me since my Gallbladder removal and we have finally gotten to the point that I am now on Lotronex. I have been on it for about a week, and I don't know if I'm crazy or if it's true, but for the first time EVER, I didn't have to have a bowel movement. I went an entire day without a single BM. This was HUGE for me! The next day I had two solid BM's, and it was scary, exciting and surpising to me. It sounds funny, but I had so many emotions going through me at that moment, and it was just so amazing! I hope this feeling continues and that I can finally live the life of a "normal" person in their 20's. Thanks for your support!
