Hey everyone thank you for those who have left replies I appreciate it and like reading what's going on with you and also experiences and advice.I feel part of a great community where I've always said I do not feel so alone even though in my life I really feel alone at times.Especially tonight feeling kind of down just feeling really lonely I'm longing and craving for companionship I isolate myself cause of my IBS.I do not want it to be this way anymore but I just cant seem to get up the nerve to just venture out to spend time around people for long periods of time with food in my system.Sometimes when I know I'll be going out like needing to run errands I will not eat at all before I go out just knowing that everything will be at peace until the server hunger pains start kicking in then I will make my way home to have something to eat.That has worked the best for me or I'll make sure to eat something light to hold me over that will not upset my stomach that is what gets me out the house.I always make sure to have my bms at the start of my day before I go out so that I will not be going out in public that seems to be working for me really well I know my body really well now to be like ok your going to start doing what you need to do so I can have my bms for the start of my day to head out lol.
I just have this fear if I'm around people spending time with them I may have an urgency to run to a restroom to have a bm not just once but several times.I'd rather have that happen at home so that I can enjoy my time out being productive with my day.I just have not control over my bms and I hate that and the fear of my symptoms acting up in public is what scares me the feeling of people knowing what going on with me and some how laughing about
it or being grossed out over it.I know it's all in my head and that is what I'm working hard in therapy to get over like my therapist says who cares what people think so ****ing what if their saying something about
me something is wrong with them.I'm letting my life go by sitting at home alone and living in fear I wish I could just work up the nerve to just eat something go out and if I have to use the a public restroom so what.It is easier said then done I just do not want to feel embarrassed and I hate to feel like that but what is there to be embarrassed about
we all crap lol but for me I crap differently from others without chronic digestive problems lol.At times I really feel like crying and yelling out to the heaven why me? why do you allow this to continue to happen to me? you know how it make me feel your supposed to give me my life and allow me to live it to it's fullest.I can not if I'm limited due to my IBS symptoms God why will you not just take this away? why did I do wrong for you to let me suffer like this and feel sad and alone most days? Then I think he makes it so I'm able to have my bms during the start of my day to go out cause it was worse in the past I was dealing with chronic constipation and would hope I was able to have bms.God made it that I found a medication Amitiza that helps me to have bms now every day and I feel better after I do.
So I need to be thankful for those things but cant seem to find the good in all of this I've rambled enough about
my pathetic life.Marsky I'll check those
cookies out I've seen them before I used to like the coconut flavored
cookies with the word Tahiti on the front of the package.I realized I had to stop eating them cause they started messing with me a little but the chocolate
cookies I can eat if I do not over do it on them cause in a way their kind of good for me.It's kind of a source of fiber for me cause one of the ingredients is whet flour so next couple of day I'm good.I was eating a lot today cause how I've been feeling tonight in the sad state that I'm in food is kind of my comfort I eat to deal with my feeling even though I kind of feel awful after.I find joy though in my tv shows since I'm always at home watching it I love watching my shows they make me forget for awhile about
my sadness and day my shows are my escape lol.I kind of live vicariously through people on tv wishing I could have their lives especially some of my favorite people on some of my favorite reality shows.Lol I love my reality shows especially Top Chef I wish I could be able to enjoy all those delicious meals that they cook and come up with.My other favorite is all the Real House Wives series and Project Runway cant wait till that comes back on.Other then that I continue to pray everyday to God to help me with my symptoms to not let them get the best of me and hope that he will cure me of it one day that there will be a cure.That would just be great for all of us to be rid of this crap and not have to worry about
food being harmful for us. I thank him all the time for this site huh I'm kind of feeling a little better typing out my feelings on the screen has cheered me up this is my other type of therapy lol.Speaking of I have a therapy session tomorrow hope I make it lol my therapist is trying to get me to eat in front of her will see what happens.Well I hope you guys have a good night I'm feeling a little tired going to sleep my day away lol till the morning facing this all over again love you all wishing you all good digestive health take care.
