Hi. I am 19 and have had ibs since I was around 14 or 15. I started getting the symtoms when I was a Freshman in hs. Now I am a Freshman in College. So I know what you are going through. Mine hit me the worst when I was a Junior and when I went to summer camp that year! How fun is that to work at a summer camp that is supposed to be fun and have ibs? Well any questions let me know.

I turn 20 next weekend and I've suffered from IBS-D since the 4th grade. I know how hard it is to go to school with IBS - teachers are totally uncompassionate about letting students go to the bathroom. I graduate early to avoid anymore of it. It's so humiliating - trust me I feel your pain!

Even though I'm 21, I have had IBS C since I was 14. I remember those rough days in high school...however, since I am a junior in college, I have noticed that my IBS has gotten worse
My advice...don't stress out like me! Make time for yourself and good luck !
