Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) is difficult. Not only is it painful and annoying, but it is not even an acceptable disease in the eyes of many. And it’s very difficult to mention in any conversation, especially over dinner, when you’re typically not eating normally and you have to explain why.
If you’re dealing with that, I know it’s frustrating. But you’re not alone. Its estimated that 10-20% of the US population is dealing with the same thing. But since no one talks about it, thank goodness for the online community. It’s where I found comfort, healing, help and advice in my time of need. And I want to pay it forward.
I’m not an expert by any stretch of the imagination. I’m just a girl who is trying to be the happy, social and adventurous person I am inside, while managing my IBS.
