How Do People Manage A Relationship When You Feel Like Crap Most Of The Time
A myIBSteam Member asked a question 💭

Look I'm not in a relationship atm but sometimes I feel it would be lovely to find someone just to hold me a say everything will be ok. The sad thing is I'm not sure I could give much back atm. How do you go on when you don't feel great a lot of the time. I don't want to live a lie and pretend everything is ok, I do this enough at work and in front of my friends. Any advice would be appreciated

A myIBSteam Member

The right person will love you regardless of your gut issues

How Many Of You Have Pain Every Day?
A myIBSteam Member asked a question 💭

I wouldn't say I have a flare up everyday or extreme pain, but I definitely do have abdominal discomfort at least 6/7 days of the week. I'm new to this diagnosis and am just trying to figure out what is common/normal for this.
Any information/testimonies would be great

A myIBSteam Member

I have pain pretty well everyday but when it is really bad I have to stay in bed.
