My boyfriend knows that I have IBS and sees how much pain and embarrassment it causes me daily. Yet he simply refuses to be sympathetic with me when I don't feel up to going somewhere with a group of his friends. I'm comfortable going places with him because he knows about my problems and won't judge me when I get diarrhea in a public space. But he doesn't seem to understand that I'm not as comfortable or open about my problem with his friends and family. Sometimes he also gets frustrated when I don't want to go places without restrooms or drive 7 hours to visit him (its a long distance relationship and I visit him about every 3 weeks). How can I possibly make him understand that sometimes I'm not comfortable doing all the activities he is?
