It will take a while to wrap your mind around the " I have a lifelong disease " part. Be as healthy as you can,exercise, eat well. The most common advice is to add yogurt and / or probiotics to your diet. I eat anything, but when I'm grumbly or runny I lay off the beans, and try to keep it milder. Some people can't eat a salad, some suffer from potato chips. you will learn your own bugaboos.
Remember, people posting usually have issues at the moment, I haven't posted in a while because I have been too busy hiking. I have an occasional bout with some mild runs, and gut rumbles, And I stick a suppository in my butt every night that I'm glad will be over with in a while, but I'm pretty healthy.
I've never had an accident, but lots here have, and carry spare undies and cleanup kits with them for pieice of mind. The enemas shouldn't cause an accident. And you will be done with them before long. They might be an off again,on again thing, time will tell. Take it one day at a time. You didn't cause this by bad diet or stress. Your folks can't understand it either, and may not be able to admit you have a lifelong issue.
You have friends here, Dear One. We understand your fears.
Come and read the posts, you will learn a lot. Maybe you can get your parents to come read, as well. Come and vent, cry and laugh. Sometimes we get very silly here.
