My symptoms were so uncomfortable today that I became desperate for new info on how to deal, so I got on the net and looked up "irritable bowel syndrome." That is what I was told was wrong with me about eight months ago when I finally told a Dr. that there are some days that I just feel "poopy." However juvenile that may sound, it was the only way I could describe it to anyone who needed to know how I felt. I wasn't hungry because I felt poopy, I didn't want to go out because I felt poopy, I couldn't have sex with my husband because I felt poopy. Worst of all is that every time I would have to be in the bathroom (sometimes 6+ x's a day) my husband would say "you have to go AGAIN!" All I could say was that he had no idea how miserable I was. Now I can't stop crying. It sounds so cliche to say what a relief it is to know I'm not alone, and people exist who can truly understand. Thank you.

This place is great, because of one of the members recommendations, I don't have anymore IBS symptoms at all - for three straight months. I now eat what I want, go where I want, drink what I want (although I don't drink alcohol because it never was my thing and my sister died from drinking and driving), etc. I love this place. I always come back because I like to help answer whatever questions I can. If we all never returned after we felt better, there would be no one around.
Enjoy being here, there are so many helpful, wonderful people here. Welcome aboard.

Welcome kamiann! This is the place that you can go to know that you are truly not alone with IBS. There have been many times I have read different posts and thought~ " Hey! I thought I was the only one!" Hope you can find some comfort here!

Welcome kamiann!We all feel poopy too!
But somehow it's easier to take when you can talk about it with people who understand.
