Hello. I am so glad I found this site. I have been diagnosed with IBS for about 7 years, and it's overwheling. This morning I had the worst accident ever on waking up, and I got so depressed because I am an adult and I feel as if IBS has taken over my world. Trying to find food triggers, diets, taking emergency clothes to work, praying I can find a toilet quickly, explaining to friends why I can't eat certain things at parties. And the pain! My God! I guess it could be worse- I have a sister who is battling Crohn's disease. Fortunately, tests proved I didnt have Crohns. The only saving thing is my kids great sense of humor about all this- they've named the toilet after me, seeing as how they can hardly get in to use it!
