Your story touched me because my IBS started in high school and it seems like after that time I could never again have a "normal" life in school. I was the one who dropped all my friend (except a couple of really close ones) and I didn't do anything socially anymore. Went to school and went home, never went to the burger joint or any other place that everyone went after school. Never did anything on the weekends anymore. I'm so sorry that you are going through it.
Have you seen a doctor? There are so many things now that medicine can do for you that wasn't available to me at the time I was in HS. Medications, supplements, etc. can possibly give you some quality to your life back. Have you talked to your mom about
this? I hope you can get some help Loas, I can really hear your pain.
