I got diagnosed with irritable bowel sydnrome (fun, huh?) about a year ago. Try telling people that, cuz it's a conversation ender. The diagnosis did explain lot of my stomach problems but didn't make them go away.

I also found out that IBS is related to anxiety. Apparently people with anxiety disorders are more prone to IBS. Don't you feel lucky? I think it sucks.

As if having SAD isn't bad enough, my stomach lives in constant war with me. The IBS makes me not want to go out with friends and makes me super uncomfortable in social situations. I never know when my stomach will act up and it's embarrassing, so a lot of time I just don't go out.

Anyone else have IBS or other stomach problems?
