Has Anyone Else Dealt with IBS?

Beginning in February of this year, I started having digestive troubles that brought me into the doctor's office more times than I'd like to admit. I know I'm prone to a bit of anxiety when it comes to my health, but this was ridiculous. Now, it's important to note that my father had a serious intestinal condition that lead to cancer (which I still believe could have been prevented through better screening and lifestyle), but other than that I had no serious risk factors or symptoms. I was just in real discomfort both physically and mentally. I don't think we can say it was true IBS, as the symptoms diminished greatly when I got the anxiety under control. Still, I got a sense of what it must be like for people with IBS. I think a lot of us take our 'bowel schedules' for granted. Having them messed up is hugely inconvenient.

Fertility Challanges - Not a Failure!

Many people who are considered infertile, or to have fertility challenges, may feel like failures as humans. Reproducing is sort of thought to be a natural, simple thing, and it's easy to think that when we see so many unexpected and unplanned babies being born everyday. Whatever the reasons for fertility troubles, no one needs to feel like a failure. There are so many other wonderful things that we can do with our lives, including adoption! Think of the amazing home a parent can provide if they've had the time to do some traveling, get an education and feel that they've made a positive difference in the world. Does anyone have any thoughts on this?
