I’ve been having a problem with IBS, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, which is related to Fybromyalgia and Sjogren’s Syndrome that I also have. My stomach hurts. I don’t have much of an appetite. My stomach rumbles and grumbles and I’ve had times where I’ve had to know where all of the toilets are located in the stores I’ve visited so I can make get there quickly if the need arises.
When I don’t have an appetite my family knows that I’m not feeling well because I love to eat. But this knot in my stomach and either not being able to go or going too much has my system in a bit of an uproar. It’s not something that is easily explained when your friends invite you out. I usually say I’m having tummy trouble.
If it’s not one thing it’s another, but i find a way to laugh about it.
