In my job as a personal shopper for My Style Companion I work with a LOT of women, often getting to know them on a rather personal level. Over the years I have come to learn that a common issue a lot of us girls suffer from is dreaded ‘IBS’. Not only does this condition make you feel unhealthy and sluggish, but IBS can take over your life when it comes down to the knock on effect that IBS has on your confidence and even down to what you feel comfortable wearing (physically and emotionally)!! The tummy has definitely been an area of the body that a lot of women have wanted to change.
So over the past 10 or so years I’ve suffered terribly (as many of us girls do!) from severe ‘IBS’ as the doctors refer to it as. After countless visits to doctors and hospitals, with no joy at resolving the issue, I’ve further developed as a result of this condition, some hormonal problems (the joys of being a woman) that have affected my weight, skin, hair, not to mention the fact that I just generally most of the time feel rather rubbish. Talk about not feeling yourself :( More
