I have had IBS for 17 years now. After seeing doctor after doctor I really found out I was wasting my time. I finally took a hold of myself and decided it was time to research as much as I can about IBS. I started that just about 2 years ago. It has been a miracle to know that i dont have to live in the pain and discomfort anymore. If I have one bout a year now thats unbelievable. I just keep going forward and will never want to experience all what I have been through all of those years. It takes time and courage, change of diet, exercise and an attitude change. It is possible to all of you who suffer so deepley with IBS. Have faith in yourself and know that anything especially curing IBS is possible. Good Luck and I will luck for other postings similiar to mine. Take care for now.
