Going for my endoscopy tomorrow! 🙏🏼
I don’t really know how to start this smoothly so here it is. I’m an 18 year old university student and since this summer, I’ve felt quite off.

Most laxatives give me…

As the tests keep coming back negative I can’t help but think this will ultimately be my diagnosis. Part of me will be relieved because I am really hoping it is not something…
