Trying not to jinx myself here, and following the ultimate words of my GI "IBS comes and goes, so when it goes, it can always come back".
In the past two months I have become lead of my departmet, received a 17.5% pay increase, finished my Bachelor's degree, moved into a nice rent house (out of my apartments where I was on the verge of killing people), and have the possible opportunity to double my salary in the coming months.
And every one of my coworkers, and family, have all noticed and said they see a huge difference in my health. I do believe a ton of unseen stress was lifted off my chest by moving from the apartments. I knew bills would be tight after moving, but then the word of my promotion came through, and that was another relief.
I have drank more alcohol in the last month than I have in the last two years; I have been up with the sun and gone, only occasionally stopping for bathroom breaks. Now granted I am no where back to normal and still have issues with this condition, but I truely think that since my nerves have calmed ten fold, that my condition has been greatly reduced.
I sure hope it can remain like this for a while, its a relief to be even slightly back to normal.
I wish others here could reduce the stress of their lives as much as I have, and that it is really an answer to what ailes us all. I know the mind is an amazing thing, but when stressed it sure does a number on the body all together.
