all the bloating caused by IBS makes me look suspiciously pregnant to co-workers. i have a huge potbelly if the bloating is really bad. i miss wearing a tank top and showing off my belly button (sigh!) gone are those days for me!on days when i'm not bloated, i have little folds of skin sagging down. i exercise a lot in an effort to firm up the tummy area a bit but no luck once i'm bloated like a balloon again. i know this sounds so vain and i should be more concern with what i eat and not the aesthetics of the body. i feel very sad about being bloated all day, just looking at my potbelly makes my insides feel much worse.
