Well this next week is my last week of high school, the last two and a half years I have been on a program so I dont have to leave my house and go to the campus because of IBS. I really want to change that routine but I dont know exactly how to do it or if I even can.
a month ago I watched a video on youtube that made me think "Wow! that is exactly what its like for me!". To summarize it shortly it basically was that it's all in my head, I don't get any bad cramps or pain in my abdomen and I only get IBS symptoms when I go on a car trip or about
to go on a trip. I've come to realize that all the stuff that ive tried, medications - prescript
ions - eating schedule or diet - regular exercise- etc., seems to effect me little to none.
I also thought about
what the man in the video has, a van with a bathroom, and I thought about
it and realized that even if I did something like that I probably wouldn't even use it, not that I wouldn't drive the van or whatever it may be, but that having that sense of security would make me not need to use a restroom at all.
To make this short i'm just adding one more thing. I'm 18 and don't have my license, i've been meaning to go to the DMV for about
a year now and everytime that I tell myself "Maybe next week." it becomes a month and my dad's schedule isn't quite available to say the least. The DMV is only 10-15 minutes away but I think everyone has been in those situations where you have to go and there isnt anywhere to go, just not fun. So for any short term tips or routines for those days that you know that you absolutly HAVE to do something, would be extremely helpful.
Heres the videos I was talking about
and possibly could be a good video for people to watch.
