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.

That sounds like me and people are always asking me to go out to eat.

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.
