So this is my first time posting on any kind of forum and I've had IBS for 9 years. I'm 20 years old. When the symptoms first started I didn't have a BM for weeks at a time, now it never stops. I go 4-5 every morning when I wake and then I have cramps/bloating/gas all day. Some days I barely get food to my mouth when I can't seem to get to the bathroom fast enough.I was seeing a gastro until I lost my health insurance. I had to drop out of school and quit my full time job because my symptoms were out of control. I take up to 6 imodium a day to try and control the symptoms. I hate going out, because I never know what to eat or if my stomach is going to get upset.To top it all off, dating sucks ! I hate having to cancel plans with someone because my stomach decided for me. I was prescribed bentyl like 4 years ago, it works sometimes. Never when I need it too. I just want to be a normal 20 yr old girl. I want to go out with my friends and have a good time. Not going out with my friends and planning my night based on where the closest bathroom is, just in case.I need some advice. I don't remember the last time I've left the house.
