I'm glad I found this group! I just emailed my Dad 'the brochure' from the IBS Self Help website, explaining IBS...again *sigh*...Just had a two day visit with him in Seattle...lots of 'restaurants, unknown places, and s t r e s s. 'Why don't you eat normal?'...or the classic, 'let's drive out to the beach after we eat'...panic city!Anyway, thanks for being here.

HIMy parents don't understand at all. My mother constantly says, "why can't you just take Gas-X?" She's read about "my problem" in medical books, but the books are old and the info is not very accurate. Dad doesn't say much besides from how he can 'go' 4 times a day if he wants and why can't I. Frustrating, eh? Have you heard back from your dad on his reaction to the brochure? I'm curious. Karen

Hi k7fd, and welcome to the Board. It's true that many people without IBS don't understand. I think it's great you emailed Molly's brochure to him. Let us know what he says about it.

My father is more understanding about it than my mother...My mother's a nurse - nurses don't believe in sickness.I've found Molly's brochure really helps! I've printed it off so many times already!I hope it helps for you!Good luck!Rhetana
