Do you mind if we have an online therapy session? I want to talk about something personal and at times scary. Having Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) the last five years has been a struggle. It’s embarrassing, life changing, and exhausting. I don’t talk much about it to anyone because of the nature of the disease and I don’t want to make anyone feel uncomfortable, but I feel a need to share some of what I experience so I can talk to others who might suffer or educate those who don’t have any experience with IBS.
