The only ones I've seen are through the Crohn's and Colitis Foundation of America (www.ccfa.org), but looking at their website, it seems like you have to be a member of the CCFA in order to get one. Is there any particular place you're hoping to use this? Sometimes there are other ways to achieve this. I'd recommend getting a letter from your doctor, but it sounds like she might not be very receptive to that.

Or, you could make your own version. DO NOT copy any of the other cards you've seen, that would be copyright infringement and illegal. But, come up with something of your own that you can carry with you on an index card in your pocket or purse.

Here is the link for the Gut Trust: http://www.theguttrust.org/ You will also see a phone number there up in the right hand corner of the page. Why not give them a call and find out how to obtain one of the cards?

Borrellifan,Then be glad that your IBS isn't bad enough that carrying this card makes you feel more confident.

Sometimes you can get by on good faith in people - That they will let you use their bathrooms, that they will let you cut in line for the restrooms, but sometimes people will say no. Anything that will help you feel safe and more comfortable is absolutely worth it.
