Imagine struggling with a disease that no one, including you, wants to talk about. What’s more, imagine looking completely normal on the outside while inside you’re in misery. Digestive symptoms can range from a little gas and bloating to severe diarrhea that strikes throughout the day. These symptoms can make going to work or school, attending a party, or just having coffee with a friend a real challenge.
The emotional symptoms that go along with digestive disease are equally draining. Every day seems the same with no end in sight. Chronic pain and suffering can lead to depression and anxiety, low self-confidence, and desperation.
