Hello and Welcome to HealingWell. I think it is very reasonable to believe you have developed diarrhea due to stress. I know you said you went on an AD but are you in any type of therapy.
IMHO if you can get the stress and anxiety under control, the diarrhea will resolve. If you have IBS I am sure you know what food triggers your disorder so be careful with your diet and try to maintain a healthy eating plan.
Keep posting.................it is good to have you with us.

Hi and welcome to HW! :
Yes, yes, yes, it certainly can.
I have IBS and I can go from D to constipation to vomiting all in one day and even my doctor knows it's anxiety. I keep a food journal so I can figure out what foods are the very worst for me. I also take bulking agents like metamucil to, well, "bulk me out!"
The insomnia is probably related as well to the anxiety. have you considered getting some help for your anxiety? It may reduce your problems (physical and mental) if you can talk all of this out. Plus you can chat to us anytime you want! Again, welcome
