How do people manage a relationship when you feel like crap most of the time

How do people manage a relationship when you feel like crap most of the time

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.

Who has used prebiotics and is it effective in helping ibs ? Does it help to take probiotics too ?

Who has used prebiotics and is it effective in helping ibs ? Does it help to take probiotics too ?

I have been reading that prebiotics help probiotics in controlling ibs symptoms. Some of these supplements can be costly and I am hoping to get information from other members if they use both prebiotics & probiotics. Are prebiotics really effective ? Do you find probiotics effective? Any side effects from them ? What supplements work best for you if you take these ? So many to chose from !
