I'm 24 years old and I've been suffering with IBS since I was 12. This illness has ruined my life. I had to drop out of high school because of this. I had plans to be an on-campus student and that didn't happen either. This is my first year in college due to my IBS symptoms and I will be attending it online. Alone and away from any and all social interactions.
I don't even know what I want or can go for anymore. My original plan was to be a nurse. I don't see that happening right now.
