    It's Worse Lately and I Hate It

    It was okay for awhile...not necessarily occuring all that often.  But ever since I had the stomach flu in March I've been having more problems with diarrhea.  I'm so frustrated.  I hate IBS.  Guess anyone that has it does.

    I have the constipation form of IBS

    and I only go maybe 1-2 times per week. Adding fiber to all my drinks and swallowing fiber pills four times a day really is a pain.
