So, I just wondered how do you all cope with controlling your symptoms in a different environment? I'm in my first year at uni and, since I've started, I've been having to leave the classroom most lessons, despite lectures only lasting for an hour max. I eventually got used to this at college, but at uni, I find it v. hard to deal with, especially when other students just give me funny looks at times and since I wanted to try and meet lots of people when I started, I've found my bowel issues have really impacted the way I socialise with new people. Anybody else felt like this?I've always enjoyed meeting new people etc, but at uni, students seem to judge soo quickly and hence the fact that now I don't have many peers I could turn to if I had a problem with the course etc I understand that stress can definitely exacerbate ones symptoms and it doesn't help that I'm struggling with my course. I want to graduate from a good uni, with a good degree, but sometimes I wonder if I'm doing the right course for me to be constantly stressed out about symptoms and whether or not I'll be able to sit through an exam without having to leave. Can anybody else relate to this? I find it really hard to control my symptoms and, consequently had to leave an exam which caused me to miss the end half of the exam. I've got exams next week ..eeek..It's got to the point where I'm thinking is it really worth me continuing with my degree and perhaps I should choose another career path which I enjoy. I apologise, as this has turned into what looks like an essay! I'd appreciate any advice. Thanks.
