College Girl with IBS
I started getting IBS the first year I started college. It was terrifying and embarrassing because I would have to go to the bathroom for diarrhea all the time. Around this same time I had started taking birth control for acne. I thought maybe that was the issue but all the doctors I saw said there was no way. A year goes by and I lost 15 pounds that I didnt need to loose making all my friends talk about me wondering if I was eatting..I got off the birth control and it got much better. I would only get sick a few times a month. My period cramps got really bad and I wanted to be back on birth control. I finally found one that worked great. I was fine most of this past summer only getting sick rarely. Was even able to study abroad. Now back at school I am getting violently sick once a week. I have had to leave class, meetings and work. People are always asking whats wrong with me. I am so scared to graduate because im sure the stress of starting a job will take a big toll on my IBS symptoms...I dont want to lie to employers and not tell them I have this problem but im afraid I wont get hired if I tell them..
