Chat IBS - many Irrtiable Bowel Syndrome sufferers would like to chat about their symptoms and determine how many people have similar issues and how they manage their problems.
Open up to Others
Chatting about IBS is a great way to manage your stress levels and relate to others with IBS. I have a community in my local area where a number of IBS patients gather together for dinner, etc. to discuss about their current status of symptoms and any treatments that they have tried that may benefit others with IBS.
It may be an embarrassing condition for some to discuss about IBS with others in person, so it would just be as beneficial to search online to find experts with IBS as well as other IBS sufferers.
Be Careful However
There are many forums that discuss about IBS from symptoms to medications to treatments. It is important to know that depression may set-in when searching on the internet regarding IBS since alot of IBS sufferers may be experiencing far more severe symptoms and it may have existed in their lives for decades.
If you treat your IBS symptoms actively and eat accordingly to effectively allow your intestinal tract to heal, your IBS symptoms will not be or remain severe nor will it last for decades. Therefore it is important to not read too much about others' symptoms as it can lead to depression and trigger your other IBS symptoms.
My recommendation is to focus on your own symptoms and find solutions that will help with your problems. This site is filled with useful information to help you to reverse your Irritable Bowel Syndrome.
