Coming in my Graphic Memoir: A Diagnosis of Exclusion

IBS is a catchword and is swept along with other words ( umbrella terms) under a large, unhelpful cover filled with FGIDs - functional gastrointestinal disorders...   My FGIDs/IBS Umbrella   Sounds like no help to me...just words. There must be someone out there who can help me!   I still have hope...early in the game.

While writing and illustrating my graphic memoir, I realized something. All of these terms the medical community has for the myriad unresolved gastrointestinal problems presented an image to me of a large umbrella. Because these terms are all categories of problems and unresolved suffering, and as of yet, very little resolution to these problems is out there. There are so many issues…not just one. So when someone says IBS, it could be a few or more of these issues happening at once.

  1. Wonderful blog! I found it while surfing around on Yahoo News. Do you have any suggestions on how to get listed in Yahoo News? I’ve been trying for a while but I never seem to get there! Thanks bebgdekbecdg
