I really need help. The IBS has gotten so bad that I'm practically afraid to eat anything but dry cereal and lettuce, and I can hardly find time to go out anymore because of the huge amounts of both aforementioned foods that I seem to need. I've also got OCD and I'm so depressed that I had to drop a class just to have more time. I have finally set up an appointment with a therapist (January) but until then......I don't know. How do you cope? I can't stand the idea of dealing with this for the rest of my life, but I know that I may have to. I want to approach it with a good attitude, but I just can't seem to do so at this point. It's so depressing. Help!
