How Do You Handle It When Invited Out To Eat With Others?

How Do You Handle It When Invited Out To Eat With Others?

This is hard for me because IBS is so unpredictable. I almost have a panic attack when I go out to eat. Sometimes I just make up an excuse and cancel.

Jeffrey, same here. It's hard to make any ryme or reason out of it. It doesn't seem to matter what I eat. I can be fine for a while but then bam..it's back and I'm house bound and wiped out. Horribly unpredictable.

Same here. Feel like I've lost touch with all friends because I'm to afraid to go out to eat. Not a fun way to exist.

I go out, but I only eat what I know won't bother me. Most restaurant food affects me so I'm very limited, but once you know what affects you and what doesn't, it makes it easier to go out without so much anxiety. I don't allow my IBS to rule and ruin my life.
