I wanted to tell you that you're not alone. I've had diarrhea because of IBS for almost 4 years now and I also have parcopresis which developed after I developed IBS. It seems to me that they go hand-in-hand. I've had no problems with shy bowel before but now that I have diarrhea all the time, everyday, I can't use the public restrooms. A week ago I was on a date with my boyfriend at a sushi restaurant, I ended up eating too much and of course, this triggered an attack. I almost soiled myself that night trying to make it home in time. I'm wondering if I should go to a therapist, as you can relate, that date night was quite traumatic for me. It was the turning point that made me realize that I have a problem.
