I get really frustrated sometimes because I just feel nothing really helps that much, and it seems each month without improvement I get asked to do more and more, and yet it never really pays off.
EFI worked well in that getting rid of dairy and fatty foods helped, but I still am not close to stable, and it's so frustrating because I've spent -Time and money with RDs and MDs -Time and money buying special groceries, reading labels
And yet food/diet remains a constant barrier, really stressing me out as I always not sure of what I can/can't eat and irregardless still suffer from episodes all the time.
What gets me is this is not cancer, so nobody really takes it seriously, and yet I just don't get why it seems everybody my RD has treated/everybody on these boards can follow instructions and get stable, and I've been trying for 6+ years and can't come close.
IBS is such a horrible barrier to me socially and physically, it really has prevented me from being an athlete since I can not eat properly for fitness training and it makes the question of going out/eating out with friends/family always a hassle.
It seems 90% of the people on this board are/get stable, I don't get why I'm not when I do EFI+FODMAP. It's like what more do I need to deprive myself of.
I'm sorry I let it get the best of me here, the board doesn't deserve that.
