Patient perspective

"I have found though that sometimes you have to make light of the situation, and I have found myself making jokes at myself about IBS simply to make light of it (however painful and embarrassing it gets for me). It's nice coming on here and reading everyone else's experiences because I know I'm not alone and that we can all understand each other. At the end of the day non-sufferers really don't know how horrible it actually is. But at least we are not alone as IBS is just something us sufferers have to live with every day." -- IBS Tales
