Hi, I just wanted to say I'm sorry you're feeling so isolated and sad, and I'm sorry I don't have much advice since I'm new to understanding what IBS does to people, but it seems like you have great support from your husband. Definitely, don't lose sight of that. I really hope you find a good way to relax as much as humanly possible, since it seems like stress & anxiety make things harder to bear. Do you have someone else you can go to for support, other than your husband?
Thank you for saying that-I have a counselor but she's honestly equally as concerned as I am-she doesn't think that the anxiety is causing all of this-she is trying to get in touch with my GI to talk to him about
it all. The noises I am hearing from my gut area (sorry for the icky talk) but they are SO loud and SO weird now it's really starting to get embarrassing and it even grosses me out.
