Where I come from, no one talks about poop. So I had no idea that my daily fight with constipation and diarrhea was something I should bring to my doctor. I thought my gut was just a little nervous. That episodes of bloating that stretched my skin until it scarred were just another quirk in my odd and unruly body. I had always been this way. So it never occurred to me that something was off.
It wasn't until I met my husband that I realized something was “wrong.” He told me almost daily that it wasn't normal to swing violently between constipation and diarrhea. That he was worried that the list of foods on my “safe list” was getting smaller and smaller but my symptoms weren't improving. That I shouldn't have to worry about leaving the house, or socializing with my friends, or being in a car for more than 10 minutes.
So I found myself in my doctor's office at 29 years old, describing a lifetime of poop and pain and panic. Eventually, my doctor settled on a diagnosis of IBS. There was no cure, he said. Only symptom management. I was handed three pieces of paper and told to start the low FODMAP diet. Left without any real guidance, I felt lost, hopeless, and alone. Like the answer I'd been waiting for was in my hands, but I couldn't find the magic words to change my life.
My doctor had made it clear that the low FODMAP diet was my best chance at managing my daily symptoms. But I had absolutely no idea how to get it done. I scoured the internet, trying to piece together any information I could about the program, how it worked, and what I needed to do. I kept binders of notes, I listened to podcasts, I read the entire Monash University blog from start to finish, I asked every person I knew if they had tried the program or knew someone who could answer my questions. I was overwhelmed, I was frustrated, and I was terrified that if I couldn't figure this out, I would be trapped in this broken body forever.
Eventually, I gathered enough information to complete the program and my entire life changed. My daily symptoms are now under control. I know exactly which foods I react to and in what serving sizes. I'm not panicked about leaving my house or eating in public or crushing my next road trip. I'm finally living the life I should have had for 29 years. The life you should have, too.
