I have IBS w/ D. Very bad D lately. I am so happy to find this forum!! It really gives me comfort that I'm not alone!! Currently I work at olive garden as a waitress and bartender, the other bartenders know about my issues (they have similiar problems). it is pretty easy to escape. It is hard when your at a table and the people want to ask a million pointless questions and I can feel an attack coming on.I actually finished school to be an art teacher and am supposed to be substituting but have been holding for fear of attacks while in class. I am going to the doc. soon to ask about prescription medicines to hopefully help. I am also gettingmarried in oct. and am petrified of an attack at the altar! I don't have prescrip. coverage either so any help or suggestions would be appreciated on D controlling meds. and their costs....if one kind is cheaper? Thanks everyone!!!
