Depends on the person and the subtype (C or D) C is predominantly constipation, D is predominantly um, the runs. I have C, and I also eat foods that make it worse, so mine is chronic

Im sorry to hear that, sounds like it sucks :(

I'm keeping a mood journal and it helps. For instance, I can see that my mood was higher when I was taking turmeric and fish oil. May be a coincidence but may not - worth a try to start taking them again. anyway, here's the format I am currently using in Excel:

Date

Rating - AM

Rating - PM Emotional/Mental Symptoms Physical symptoms Contributing factors  - likely Contributing factors  - possibly AM Med Taken? PM Med Taken? Supplements taken? Any medication or supplement eliminated today?
Actions taken to improve or One strength Comments I am grateful for: Looking forward to: I ate and drank:

I'm predominantly C but spent 12 years as a severe D, not sure why it changed but even though I'm now a C it really doesn't take much to send me the other way. Can't win. I too eat all the foods, but I tried the new IBS diet (I've tried alll the diets I think over the years) and none of them made a scrap of difference.

Have you tried dicyclomine (bentyl)?  I have IBS and it helps when the diarrhea hits.  Calms the spasms down in my intestines.

Chronic, switches from diarrhea to constipation whenever it feels like it.  I started out with IBS-C (constipation) and am now IBS-D (diarrhea).

I've never heard of having IBS occasionally happening.

I don't know if we get that here, I take buscopan when things go that direction. I'm the opposite to you. They both suck. I always thought when I was a really bad D that C would be better. It's not and I still get to have the fear of D.

Agreed as well. I wish they'd find SOMETHING that helps, even a little. Mine's so bad that combined with the fibro, the anxiety and depression I'm not able to work. And I want to. I hate not being able to.

I thought that too at one point.

Hi everyone. ..I am new here and I have been off and on depressed since I was a kid. More so since I had to have a total histerectomy  (sp) back in January of 2014 ? I was 38 and still had hopes of giving my husband a biological child. It still fuck me up....then to top it all off I am over weight with obviously eating disorders.

Do you have any PRNs you could take for the agitation?  Does your pdoc know about your thoughts and you feeling like you are slipping further into depression?  The faster that it is caught and treated, the better off you will be.

I hope you feel better soon.

I was doing good for a few days. Surprisingly good. Then it all came to a halt last night. I freaked out and couldn't function. I didn't go to work today and my anxiety is through the roof because idk if I will get in trouble or fired. Fuck!

I don't know what it is, but it happens to me also. It's like I never get a dependable good mood. Sooner or later the depression strikes back.

I'm sorry, Ash. Did you mention that you have a pdoc appointment in the near/relative near future?

For me my mood changes after every time I wake up.  It is always unpredictable.

When you didn't go to work today, did you call in or just not show up?  I would think if you called in it should be ok.  How often does this happen?

Unable to go and get my script filled because of the fear of starting new meds. The rational side of my brain knows this is ridiculous, but the other part can't make myself get there and get it done. Anxiety has been pretty bad in general today.

Ignore me, I didn't even put this in the right thread I'm so beside myself!

What med were you meant to be starting if you don't mind me asking?

I can relate to not being able to do something even though you know logically that its ridiculous, hope you start feeling better soon :)
