Psychological impact

My confidence is affected

I have both Coeliac disease and IBS. I often get abdominal cramps and bloating. I can often look like I am 9 months pregnant. It does severely affect my confidence. Unfortunately it really affects all aspects of my life. It is difficult living with this condition. I always have to watch what I am eating and drinking, as I can get symptoms really quickly. I have been at events when my tummy has become really swollen, extremely quickly. It affected me so much that I had to ask my other half if we could leave and go home.
