Ok so i guess maybe i'm looking for some comfort to know im not alone in the blaoting saga. At least 5 times in the past year ive been asked by people whether im pregnant...i blush and want to cry and want to run away from the situation...how do you say no im not, i just have an irritable bowel! i find it so rude that people ask thogh, im a young looking 22 year old and whilst i admit the bloating does often make my stomach look larger than normal its not that obvious that people should approach me. if only people were more aware of IBS and its symptoms and could understand you can't just walk up to someone and say 'oh are you pregnant?' ive had old people, kids, colleagues, staff in two different shops ask me all within a year and it gets me so depressed. Whats worse is i had no bloating for a couple of weeks, then it hit me yesterday and the first shop i went into i was asked by the staff. I feel so ashamed eventhough i know i shouldn't. Does anyone else experience this?
