Patient Perspective

"I feel you, I don't really have much of a social life any more because of IBS. I used to be out and playing sports every day with friends and everything but now it's like, I'm afraid to go out because I'm afraid that my stomach will act up and it's just so awkward and uncomfortable."

-- discussion group participant, commiserating on the social effects of IBS, on the IBS Self Help and Support Group Forum
