Regarding the social aspects, a lot of people with IBSsimply choose to tell people around them. I know a personwho tells everyone about the issue and when he goes outto dinner, they are aware he may need to run home andgo to the bathroom. We do not make fun of him. We empathise with him and understand the problem. An estimated 20 to 35 million people have this problem.Some people have it so bad they poop in their pantswhile driving in a car. Some have it so bad they havediarrhea and abdominal pain every day for years, sobad its difficult for them to hold a job. Others have mildto moderate form where the diarrhea is frequent buts only once ortwice a day and it is controllable. You can't let this problem make you a hermit. I personally have neverheard anyone's body make so much noise that I was puzzled or laughedor anything.
