Hi EveryoneJust been diagnosed with Severe Ibs! Been unwell for a very long time, and it's just now they actually tell me what it is. They have said something about me goin to see a Pyscologist to get Hypnotherapy. Has anyone on here had this type of treatment??? It has affected my every day way of life. I can't go out and if i do i constantly have to go to the toilet. I have heard of a card that you can get, which says you have Ibs and if a shop doesn't have public toilets then they are required to let you use their personal toilets. Has anyone heard of these such cards?? I seen it on the Hour programme, filmed in Glasgow. The lady on it with the doctor had one. Can anyone help????Thanx

Hi Wilma,Welcome to the forum.I never heard of that card, sounds interesting.But its possibly you may never need it as you canmap out the public bathrooms in every setting youare in, be it the mall, doctor's office, sports game, park, etc. Even when you drive to visit someone,you can figure out the best bathrooms.I've got a mental list of all the nicest hotelson my route that have bathrooms you could sleepin.

I have recently bought myself a 'Can't wait won't wait card' for emergency use and it has proved very helpful. This is a card you can produce in most shops and they will let you use their private staff toilets. It merely states that you have a medical problem and need to use the loo urgently. I also bought a Radar Key for using the locked disabled loos…these are fab!! If you haven't got these I would recommend both.The Radar key you can get from the either the Gut Trust on http://www.theguttrust.org/radar.asp or the Radar website at a cost of £3.50 http://radar-shop.org.uk/ these are fantastic to get into those locked disabled loos quickly. The card can be ordered from The Bladder and Bowel Foundation for £5.00 at http://www.bladderandbowelfoundation.org/s...t-wait-card.htm Hope you all find this useful...I know you can get these in the UK, not sure about other countries.I am new to this site today, hope this was useful

These sound great. I don't think these would fly in the U.S. butwish they would. Here some restaurant owners near collegesand bars will shut down their bathroom on a fr. and sat. night(they put a sign up saying out of order) to prevent people frompuking. If they want us to buy their food, there should be a lawthat says they need to provide a bathroom. I feel sorry for peoplein New York city as you can walk for blocks and ask 10 placesto use their bathroom and they will tell you no.
