I had this wild idea today (although I've had it before). What if I became an IBS counselor? Have no idea what it would take to become a licensed counselor, but is it really crazy? I would basically work with people who have GI problems and give them a friendly ear, encourage them to find a good doctor, help them find diets or supplements that might help their guts, help them relieve some of their stress.
I mean, if you could go to a counselor who did nothing but work with people with GI problems (and money was no object), would you be interested? I know a lot of people come to this board in order to have a friendly ear; so much better if it's in person?
