Hi everyone,I just found out this summer that I have IBS. Until maybe two years ago I felt like a normal and healthy person. I want that life back so badly. After spending way too many hours in the dorm bathroom this semester already, I am getting to the point where I am afraid to leave my room. I was put on Robinul before I came back to school. I don't have to worry about d like I used to, but I do still have a lot of pain and anxiety about everything. Since I have started the medication I have had to deal with c as well! This is even more upsetting for me because it scares me, I never had a problem like that before. I find myself missing classes and social events because I am too scared to be far from a bathroom. I recently broke up with my bf of three years (an unrelated event) and I want nothing more than to get out and mingle. I can't tho and my friends just do not understand. I get more and more frustrated everyday. I've been seriously considering quitting my hockey team because I'm not sure I'll be able to make the commitment anymore. I just want some way to get back to a normal life without having to worry about this. Does anyone have any ideas on how to get past it or ideas on how to control the symptoms? I would really appreciate it. Thanks so much for taking the time to read this.
