Relationships and IBS

Posted on May 25, 2018

IBS can put strain on a relationship. A partner or significant other may struggle to understand the ups and downs of IBS. One day we feel fine, the next day it's difficult to leave the house. Sometimes we don't know how to ask for help, and sometimes our loved ones don't know how to help.

On myIBSteam, the social network and online support group for those living with IBS, members talk about a range of personal experiences and struggles. Relationships are one of the most-discussed subjects.

Here are some question-and-answer threads about relationships:

How do people manage a relationship when you don't feel well often?

How do I tell my friends about my condition?

How do you feel more comfortable having to go when at someone's house?

Here are some conversations about relationships:

My husband has done some things the make me mad.

Tried to spend the day with my husband.

My husband decided he wanted an Indian take away for his dinner.

I need to talk to someone about this and I don’t want to gross out my husband.

Can you relate?
