First of all let me say that I did not eat out for a whole year when I first started having symptoms. That was 6 years ago and now have pretty much learned how to live with ibs. I have family and during good spells we venture out to dinner and they always leave the"where" up to me. They always ask "can you find something to eat there?" Does this sound familiar to any of you? I was wondering where any of you went and what you ordered. I would be willing to bet that we all eat at the closest restaurants to our homes!!! That's usually what I do.
