HiI'm 19 yrs old and have suffered from IBS for the past year and i have to say I HATE IT WITH A FIRERY PASSION OF HATE!!!! I'm trying to study at university but its hard to go to lectures when you have to go to the toilet every hour. And my stomach makes the most horrendous rumbling noises(does that happen to anyone else?). I still have a pretty good social life but i see it starting to slip away as i have constantly leave places early cos im desperate to go to the toilet, or my stomach is making horrible nosies, or i just leave because my bloated stomach is making me feel like ill never be happy again. My last boyfriend and i broke up because he thought i wasn't interested as i was always breaking off our dates and i was too embarrassed to tell him why!!!!Ok sorry for that but i feel slightly better now!!!Love for any kind of feedback even if its just to tell me to stop whinging!!!
