Hi IBS friends.
My cousin is doing her psychology PhD and she needs IBS sufferers to fill out her forms. You could win an amazon or topshop/topman voucher for 15 minutes of your time.

Crying because my family didn’t invite me to a family party. We are talking immediate family, aka my dad. Just very sad right now. People stop inviting you out when you’re sick and it hurts.
A psychologist walked around a room while teaching stress management to an audience. As she raised a glass of water, everyone expected they’d be asked the “half empty or half full” question. Instead, with a smile on her face she inquired, “How heavy is this glass of water?” The answers called out ranged from 8oz to 20 oz. She replied, “The absolute weight doesn’t matter. It depends on how long I hold it. If i hold it for a minute, its not a problem. If i hold it for an hour, i’ll have an ache in my arm. If i hold it for a day, my arm will feel numb and paralyzed. In each case, the weight of the glass doesn’t change, but the longer i hold it, the heavier it becomes.” She continued, “The stress and worries in life are like that glass of water. Think about them for a while and nothing happens. Think about them for a big longer and they begin to hurt. And if you think about them all day long, you will feel paralyzed - incapable of doing anything.” Always remember to put the glass down.
Think I’ve finally finished the gold!
I know someone talented
I don’t have chronic pain but this artwork is so nice to look at *^*
Just because we’re not writhing on the floor doesn’t mean we’re not hurting. We’ve just gotten really good at hiding it and functioning with it, otherwise we’d literally starve in our beds.
Lived like this for nearly a year. Got super lucky that it was repairable, but feel for those who have conditions that are not. <3
Has any of my lovely followers ever used Methotrexate for their Crohns or IBD? A friend has been prescribed and wants to know what experiences people have had.
