How to Talk About IBS Anonymously
Some aspects of IBS can be hard to discuss openly on the internet. You might worry about sharing too much on social media. What if people from your personal life see? But you still want to connect with others. You need to talk to those who understand IBS to get support!
At IrritableBowelSyndrome.net, there is a way around this: creating an anonymous username on IrritableBowelSyndrome.net. This is the best way to engage without revealing who you are. Keep reading to find out more.
