Hi Steph...

I think all of us here experience major anxiety just at the thought of leaving the comforts of our homes and our own bathrooms. It can be eased, however, with proper planning. I'm not sure if you have IBS-C or D. I have IBS-D and I don't leave home without Imodium chewables. They have been a life-saver for me. Also don't leave home without plenty of bottled water or water from home that you and your digestive system are used to drinking. Lots of attacks had to happen for me away from home before I realized I needed to have water on hand that my system was used to. Change in water can cause problems. Don't leave home without safe snacks so that you are sure you will have something you can eat without worry or if it ends up being a while between meals. Order safe things when eating out on your trip and make those you are staying with aware of your digestive needs so that they don't cook something that is going to make you sick.

I know this is easier said than done, but try not to worry about the trip and just enjoy yourself. My husband and I just went on a five day road trip and had a wonderful time with hardly any trouble.

Good luck. I hope these tips help.
