I am in my early twenty's and tired of being lonely due to diarrhea. I'd rather be alone than go out with a group of other young folks that want to hang out because ibs has scared me enough. It is usually that I am in large crowds that it occurs. It is just too humiliating and depressing to do it. Besides, it is usually eating places and I am not sure I want to go. Other times I don't want to go because I don't know if a bathroom is available. They probably would understand if I told them my problem, but I am too embarrassed to express it so openly what can I do? I do not want to continue being lonlely, nor do I want stay glued to my home where there is a bathroom. Help!
