I basically just wanted to see if anyone esle my age matches my story with ibs.Im 19 and have had ibs for the last two years. Everyday I suffer with horrible loud, gurgly bubbling noises from my bowel and havinga social life is almost impossible! I need to know in advance the type of setting e.g. cinema is a big no no, (risk of noises from my bowels!)but a club or pub is a yes. Even though Ive only suffered with it for two years it has affected my whole life.Exams at college where a nightmare and I just wanted to break down and cry and wish other people could know about ibsand I wish it wasn't so embrassing.Dating and relationships have been affected majorly. I was with a lovely guy at start of year and it was fine going to a pub and thatbut if he suggested something as little as watching a film round his, I had to make excuses not to go round. I couldn't risk the embrassmentof him hearing those disgusting revolting noises and because I knew evantually I would have to do something like that I ended it with him.What I want to know is, because looking into the future how is someone like me ever going to have a boyfriend? or even more importantly get married one day?in my opinion knowing men, no guy is ever gonna want to be married to some loser like me with bowel problems like mine. This really depresses me and I just wanted to know if anyone is married or in a serious relationship how did your partner react? It would be comforting to know one day it may be possible.
