Hi, @kegsmh! I’m so sorry you weren’t feeling good at all. However, I’m very glad you found my article and was able to relate. I believe comparing ourselves to others is a self-destructive behavior we must learn to avoid for the sake of our mental and physical health. It took me a while to even get to the point where I am today where I can truly…

You’re welcome, @cfamilyfix! I totally understand – I used to work a job that was very physical and taxing on the body, which I ended up having to leave due to my IBS. Wishing you much strength and tenacity to help get you through the rough days at work because I can imagine how challenging it can be.

Mornings are also very rough for me. I…

Thanks for being able to relate and sympathize, @mojo1010! It’s really tough when the ones closest to you don’t want to understand or support, but I always like to stay optimistic and hope that they will soon come around. However, I much rather rely on communities like this one (a.k.a. my FIBS ::wink wink::) for support and understanding, which…

Thanks for writing this Hess. The fatigue that comes with this condition is no joke! I still work at a job where it is very physical and lots of heavy lifting (bus mechanic) and believe me I can’t remember the last time I felt good at my job. I force myself to be social since when I stay home it makes me a bit more anxious. Mornings suck! But e…

It is most definitely not just you @mojo1010 ! Haha… I’ve been fasting most mornings because of it, and even when I do have a smoothie midday, I still can rush into the bathroom! I’ve figured out that some foods are easier in the morning for me…solid foods such as scrambled eggs, avocado, bacon (not too greasy), or even almond butter on a rice…

@mojo1010,

Glad today is a better day! 🙂 Stress has such a big impact on our IBS doesn’t it? Have you thought about, or tried, mediation or yoga? Even taking a few deep breaths effects our nervous system.
