I just wanted to say hello to everyone and that your messages have been very encouraging to me. It is wonderful to know that I am not suffering alone. I was just diagnosed with IBS type C this december. Right now I'm having a lot of trouble with constipation and I've been trying all your suggestions with no cooperation whatsoever from my gut. I fear that I just may explode. But I'm not going to give up. The fiber thing was really working for me, but ever since I came back to school from winter break it's been heck. One thing that really bothers me is how to talk to my friends about this problem. Any-hoo, I just wanted to say hello and I'm glad to be here.

Welcome yinyangArtemis (that's a finger-full!). Know what you mean about talking to your friends. Most of mine don't even know I have IBS. I also have fibro and they know I have it. So, why do you suppose I've been so reluctant to share the IBS with them???? Hunnhhh???
