I am 13 years old, and have just recently been diagnosed with ibs. At first they thought I was diabetic, and then celiac and lactose and tolerant, but they finally came to the conclusion that I have ibs. It's been a really hard year trying to cope with it, and I feel like I am not getting any better at this. I am scared, because they said I will have it for the rest of my life, and I don't want to go through this. I am too young! I have been trying to avoid the foods that triggers it, but it is so hard! When your at a sleepover, and there is pizza, pop, chips chocolate and other things, and you can't have any! It's crazy. Eventually I will give into my craving and eat. I will sometimes get a hankering for something that I know I shouldn't have, and then spend hours on the toilet beating myself up, and wondering why I ate that! Another thing I can't have is red meat, or deep fried foods! Now my whole family has to give up foods they love just for me. It's hard putting that burden on them. I am young! I shouldn't be worrying about these things.
