Unhappy Help Me. Please.

I NEED HELP. I WAS DIAGNOSED WITH IBS YEARS AGO. I AM YOUNG AND I HAVE BEEN HAVING A HARD TIME DEALING WITH THE SYMPTOMS AND ALSO TAKING CARE OF MY CHILD. I FEEL SICK ALOT. I GET BAD LEFT SIDED PAINS AND SOMETIMES FEEL LIKE VOMITING. I CAN'T GAIN WEIGHT AND I HAVE LOST ABOUT 20 SOME POUNDS. I WEIGH UNDER 100 NOW. I AM FRUSTRATED, I HAVE HAD ALL THE TESTS, WENT TO SEVERAL DOC AND THEY BASICALLY TELL ME TO LIVE WITH IT. I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO DO AT THIS POINT. I HAVE TO BE HEALTHY AND FEELING GOOD TO BE A GOOD MOM. I HAVE BEEN UNABLE TO TAKE CARE OF MY DAUGHTER FOR 6 MONTHS NOW. I FEEL BAD FOR MY HUSBAND WHO HAS TO DEAL WITH ALL THIS. I GET REALLY BAD BACK PAIN WHEN I GET THE STOMACH PAINS. ANYONE HAVE ANY SUGGESTIONS TO HELP ME? PLEASE?

Re: Help Me. Please.

Hi there,

I am not sure if I can help you as I suffer from the same IBS life-altering affliction. I can however, help you feel that you are not alone. I too suffer daily from cramps, diarrhea, and a general feeling of exhaustion and sickness. I had my baby 7 months ago and can hardly take care of her on my own. If my husband is not around, I have to go to my parents to help out. It is very frustrating for my husband as he has to take on the main role as parent because most of the time I am in bed crying from the pain and depression. I am not sure what to do myself. It is nice to know that there are other moms out there sufferring from the effects of trying to parent and trying to control IBS which is in and of itself, a full time job. We need all of the support we can get!

Thanks for listening,

Dana
