Considering everyone is going into massive detail about their *****, well:

> Have IBS
> IBS basically means explosive diarrhoea like all the time
> Moved to a house where the only toilet is all the way through one room, downstairs and through another to even get to it
> So many close calls you wouldn't believe
> Finally move to another house
> Upstairs bathroom
> Sensor flush
> Handles because my mum has false hips and **** and can't move much
> Walk in shower


I know it's sad, but I honestly was excited about the bathroom being about 3 metres away from my room.

On the topic of IBS...have you found any specific dietary modifications that help at all? I've heard eat a lot of fruit, fiber doesn't help, things like that...but nobody exactly has had the same symptoms so i'm not sure if they'll work..Doesn't help that mine seems to be caused by nerves half the time.

Stress and nerves are an absolute killer, you'll tend to have problems if there's a lot of stress in your life.
However, I've found when I cut out lactose like altogether I felt better, after I like barfed strawberries and cream once - that was like it for me.
I also take something called Mebeverine 20 minutes before eating, it can be a pain if you have to sit there and wait for it to work, but if you time it right I've found it can help, you can buy it in pharmacies or your doctor can perscribe it for you. Basically it stops your stomach from cramping up and you know the rest.
Fiber is good, but at the same time too much can just cause the same problems as no fiber at all. You can get enough from breakfast cereals (I tend to have mine with lactose free milk, works a charm and tastes the same)
So you can try going without stuff like milk and cheese and see if you have the same problems, IBS and lactose intolerance have quite a correlation, if not gradually reintroduce them.
It's a bit of a hit and miss thing for me and a lot of people, it can be annoying but food diaries help too.
