Hi, I am new here. I have had IBS for four years now. I am a junior in college and have been sick since junior year of high school. I have been having a hard time dealing with it. It always seems to be getting worse. I feel like my boyfriend and family don't know how to help me as I've been to about four doctors and had all the tests run at least twice. It's so hard to talk to anyone about it. I've about isolated myself from social gatherings that don't pertain to my boyfriend or family - because I feel like I just can't have a good time, people just judge me. I'm so fed up with it all. I wish there was an outlet and that's why I'm writing this. I just want to be happy and not hurt every second of every day. I wish I could ignore it but it's just not tolerable sometimes. My IBS alternates between constipation and diarrhea. I have elminated foods that are the worst, but even the ones I eat are not helping and just are not satisfying at all! What do you guys do to help? I try to work out but I have a #### immune system and am sick a lot so my workouts are minimal. I take dance, but again it's just minimal. I am an active person and IBS is hindering the things I want to do in life and the way I feel about everything. Any advice would be great, but I just needed to let off steam too. Thanks guys.
