To those of you that do not have supportive husbands ,family I think that LittleLisa hit the nail on the head because I don't believe that people who do not have IBS understand exactly what we go through. This is not the first time that I have read posts such as this,unfortunately.I told my wife and family exactly what my condition was like and said that if I was ok I would go out on trips or wherever but if I didn't feel up to it then I would not be joining them and if they didn't like it, too bad. More polite than that but that was the message.Fortunately, they are all very supportive but I don't think they truly understand and probably never will.All people are different, some supportive, some just downright pigs but it's good to have this BB where we can turn to people who DO understand and, although it dosn't solve anything it is good to have a moan now and then even if just to relieve the stress.You would think that our loved ones would be the first to support us and not to be selfish just thinking about themselves.Maybe these selfish people may have an attitude change and be more sympathetic, although I doubt it.
I wonder how many men that have IBS have uncaring wives or family?
