PSA - I am an attorney, too. I'm almost 28 and I've been practicing 3 years. I haven't met any other attorneys with IBS. How do you manage your IBS with the stress that is inherent in our line of work?
Its' such a pleasure to know about you. What a wonderful surprise.
Well in so far as stress is concerned, the day I was diagnosed in October 1989, the first thing my doctor told me was that I was in a wrong profession. Believe me you, may be the work pressure and professional stress would take its toll on my health. It gets aggravated. What do you call it ... Inherent Professional Hazards. Now I have confined myself more to chamber practice/corporate consultancy and less of court work. I have been practicing for the last 21 years - quite ancient --- no obsolete after UC.
