I'm sorry to hear how hard this is for you. I truly hope you feel better. And what do you mean you won't be around when you are in your 30s, do you just mean not around her? Seriously, as down as I get (I am only 22) I have to believe there is hope. This "disorder" can't be so bad as to have no cure in the future. Take care. I truly hope things work out for you. I know how tough it is.

Wow. I too hope you don't mean you will not be around on earth! I get vey down too. When I feel really down I like to lean on those who are special to me. It sounds as though you are keeping this all locked inside. Nothing is more therapeutic than having a good cry on my fiances shoulder. Maybe you would benefit from opening up. You know, another avenue of hope is that researchers are really just getting started on IBS. I think there will be great thingsto come. Hang in there! And don't think too far ahead. Just take it one day at a time.

all of the above: me too. really, don't give up. when i think back to how bad i was ten years ago, even though i'm far from fixed i know enough to count my blessings. dietary changes haven't led to remission for me, but for example i have been able to specifically identify what causes me cramps, so the pain side of this problem is over for me. (if only i could do the same for the other symptoms). even so from late afternoon on my problems ease up to almost nothing now, which certainly was not always the case.keep reading and researching, check out other people's experience, and look for a good doctor. you might not get 'fixed' either, but a lot of us can improve things to some degree. take care.
