Hey everyone!I'm a 15 year old girl and have recently been diagnosed with IBS. I wanted to know if anyone else felt the same way I do sooo... 1) Going to school is really really hard, because some days, I have to go to the bathroom a lot, which is really embarrassing, and I HATE using school bathrooms. Also, I find it extremely hard to concentrate on work and school while I'm in pain. The worst is that I read that people with IBS should get lots of sleep (which I already don't get enough of on school nights) but most nights I'll either be running back and forth to the bathroom or in so much pain that I can't sleep.. so what do you guys all do for those things?2) I feel alone a lot, and like people don't understand that IBS is really hard for me. I'm in pain ALL the time and try not to show it, but I don't think anyone who i've told takes it seriously. They think its just a stomach ache that will go away in a few minutes. 3) It's hard to make plans with friends sometimes, because i'll be really sick or in too much pain too get together or leave the house, and they don't understand. I also hate going out for dinners with family or friends because there's so much I can't eat, and when I don't feel well, the smells of foods make me even more nauseous at times, and its hard to be in public with IBS too. I find it makes me feel better when I'm just lying down and watching TV because I always try to get my mind off of it. 4) What are everyone's safe foods? I'm still finding out mine so I want to see if we all have some in common!Let me know if anyone else feels the same too Thank you guys!!
