I have IBS-D and I can totally relate to this article.

The worst times are when I am a guest at sit down dinners. My spouse is amazing when we are guests at sit down dinners and helps me.

For the first few minutes of the meal, usually push food around my plate, cut food up with a knife, yet consume very little, or nothing. He eats half…

“Change your mindset, change your life.” I agree with that. I’ve come along way in managing my symptoms. It’s taken me since being diagnosed in 2004 to now to be in a better place physically, emotionally and mentally. I made almost 100 percent improvement this July. I have to accept that I do still have bad days, not everyday as I used to.…
