that after living with IBS for almost 2 years, tonight reading the postings on this BB is about the best I've felt. I'm 28 and have IBS D. I'm pretty shy about talking about my symptoms with friends and family but I responded to so many postings tonight! Many of the questions that have been running through my mind over the past couple of months (my symptoms have become more severe lately) were discussed in one posting or another.Anyway, I just wanted to say it's nice to meet you all on this BB. I really appreciate that there are people that are able to open up and share their experiences to help others out.One question: has anyone tried acupunture? I'm thinking of trying it but would love to hear of someone's experiences first.
