Updated: Jan 14

*Please note: Don’t read this if you’re easily offended or dislike toilet humour*


It's the 1st of December today!


December was ALWAYS the worst time of year for me when I had IBS. The overindulgence, the abundance of high FODMAP foods, the booze, the stress of sorting presents...the list goes on!


So in the spirit of Christmas, I decided to write an IBS version of the 12 Days of Christmas! I do have dirty humour so expect a bit of filth!


I have done my best to cover all IBS types and symptoms - so there's something for everyone, so to speak!
