I feel your pain. Most of my life I have been looking forward to a career in the US Army, but I cannot make it through boot camp with IBS. I cannot even make it to my first block classes in school let alone boot camp. My stomach is always bothering me, nonstop every day, all day.

i'm sorry to hear you're having such a hard time dealing with your ibs...i don't know how much direct, useful advice i can give you, other than to tell you to look up as much information about your particular symptoms with ibs as you can, especially on this website.i know that i've read/heard that there is good help in india if you look in the right place and come with the right understanding and questions...as you seem to already know, yoga & meditation help many with ibs...hypnotherapy is another avenue you may wish to explore, it has helped many on this bboard...have your symptoms been getting worse from the past years? did you use any kind of medication or techniques before that don't work now? you should take some time to look around this website and find information, and of course feel free to post questions to everyone as well, there are people here who are very knowledgeable about ibs and how to get it under control for you...i hope this helps,meth

HI,I think I am in a similar situation to you. My life was set out before me, I was top in my class, very successful in my jobs, with a good social life. But, then along came IBS. I, also, have lost a lot of weight. At one stage I was 20kgs lighter than before i got sick. People were constantly telling me to eat more, but that only made me be in more pain. I can only tell you what has helped me, but as you know everyone is different so some of these things might not work for you.1. If you can, walk as much as possible. This massages your bowels, and helps with gas.2. Eat at the same times every day3. Find out if you are intollerant to any foods, milk, gluten, protiens (like meat and eggs)4. Pepperment tea and pepperment capsules help me when I am having a bad time5. In New Zealand a lot of people drink Aloe Vera Juice. You can buy it at the Supermarket and Health Shops. This didnt work for me, but it has helped many other.6. Stop eating after tea. Give your bowels a break from food until breakfast. Everytime you chew they start moving, so they need a break from you eating7. Try a fiber drink. One without sugar in it works best for me.8. Have your main meal in the middle of the day while you are awake and active. Your body can digest it better then.9. Get in to a routine as best you can. Sleep/ eat at the same time. This makes it easier for you to predict what your bowels are going to do because they have rhythms too.10. If you have a really bad day, get a good video out or book, sit back and relax. Crying is good too
11. I work part-time. Would this be a good option for you?12. Keep a diary of what happens to you. You can take this to doctors, dont let them brush you off as someone with a mental problem. You are perfectly normal, just desparate for relief.13. And you can talk to me if you like. I'm happy to be a virtual shoulder to cry on
