I have had Ibs c and d since my teens. I hate not being able to eat normal food. I went to a luncheon with some friends last week and someone brought cherries which I haven’t had in years. I thought a few would not hurt me. Well let me tell you I paid for it the next morning, went to the bathroom 3 times before I left for church services. Then had to go 2 more times during the services, thought I would have to cancel afternoon plans but luckily I felt better by noon. Whenever I go somewhere and they serve salad I have to say no thanks. People do not understand why and I feel like such a freak. No one understands why I am so picky about what I eat. How do you handle this.
