"I hate how my IBS affects my social life. Even with my pills there is a lingering fear that it'll flare up when I'm not at home. I have plans tonight with some friends and I'm feeling really anxious about it which in turn is making my stomach kind of upset. I should be looking forward to this." -A member on myIBSteam
