Mornin' Whiskers! :)
Again, thanks for reply. I'll try to condense all of this. IBS had all but disappeared, then apt fire 3 years ago, my denied emotions caught up with me and PSTD resulted so now I 'entertain' anxiety and depression AND the IBS came back. Started visiting therapist 4 months ago. Helps. She would approve of you saying "Listen all we can do is try"...:) I started in eating sweets at night ...so wanting to take off more weight, I thot, ok fruit instead of candy/
cookies, etc... and as I did so, my bm's improved and less diarrhea... Lost more weight than what I wanted to. :(
I have no hemmorhoids that I know of. I do believe the Slippery Elm and Marshmallow help that problem. Have had in past. I am finally becoming convinced that my bowel problems all have their roots in my anxiety... Anxiety can do/create Anything ...because we put so much 'effort' into worrying about
'what is my BM going to be like this morning,' I am trying to do a number of things, just experiment...PLUS... I tend to 'overthink'. Not good. Am making some progress with the A/D, so believe that should help. I HOPE.
Hope you have a good weekend, and everyone else, too, that might be reading this.
