Yes, that anxiety is a mean culprit. I know exactly how you all feel, I may be going along doing great, and let someone, or something throw a kink in my rope, and I am right back where I started.
I have started to take the Imodium when I feel anxiety coming on, I feel like I am trying to head it off at the pass, so to speak. Like giving myself a jump start.
I have a terrible habit of letting people get to me, things they say...things they say about others....actions, and of course, mean people who like to hurt others with thought, word or deed. Shame on them all. I can't let this stuff roll off of my back, it just sits in side of me simmering away. That is the reason I have so much anxiety ibs attacks, thats what I call them anyway.
Stress is mean and cruel, it just attacks everyones body differently. We just happen to have it hit us in our guts!!
I just hope we can help each other through lifes bumps to make it through to the bathroom.
If I had to get to the bathroom, no way would I let other peoples ideas about it, keep me from running. YOU are the most important person when it comes to D, so go on and get there, explain it a little afterwards, just enough so they can be sympathetic, and then go on with life. Don't forget to take those Imodium though, it will save you before no one else, or anything else can!! good luck.
