ALI’S PERSONAL STORY

I was diagnosed at the age of 12 with IBS when I almost fell over in the mall with stomach cramps. I am a 22 year old with IBS-C and it is terrible. I get embarrassed in public because I have the worst gas, I work in a cubicle so my neighbors hear it all and smell it too. I’ve been dealing with it for a long time so I come out and tell them it’s my IBS.
I have learned that it’s better to eat small and eat a lot of bland fiber or I tend to get diarrhea on top of it. I love spicy foods too so sometimes I risk the cramps for some food.
There’s no telling where it “came from” I was born without the ability to pass my own stool.
It’s great knowing I’m not alone.
