i hvae been wondering wehtaer to bother giong to my new lessons at mental healht unit. i wasnet sure abuot giong back there. i went to a stress and anixoty managmnet cousre on friday. it was good to talk to some one there who understood. but aslo at same time my new key wroker seems to be the rigth perosn to help me at mo. she bascialy sent me to a class thta gose out to the local sport centre and thsi week we are giong bowling. i went for the fisrt time last week and i raelly enjoyed it. i am stil not sure abuot the stress class thuogh. every one esle there seemed to be able to see postively but i canet at mo.

i am hvaing my colosnocpy on the 19th of thsi monht. well i hvae waitied long enuogh for it. i am draeding it. i hvae just got my apointment thuogh for the dermatogist abuot my imnnue system positive blood tests. as she fuond somethnig was wrong i had to go back and see her.

today i went to see our local outdroor pursuit centre. it was surgested by my key wroker. i always enjoyed sport iuntil i got ibs and depression. i am thniking of joining and doing a cousre in climbing somethnig i wanted to do.

we are always told to loke for postive thnigs we hvae done. i actually did some filming for a tv program whcih has been shown a few times now. from thta i got a contract for a mag abuot pcos whcih i hvae. i am so pleased thta i hvae helped so many peole as had loads of emails from peole who need ed surport. i am glad i did it and thta has made me feel beter knowing thta i helped thme and got awreness of the condition.

If the lessons are helping you even just a little, I would say to stick with it. Getting help and support especially now with your health problems is probably the best thing and probably better to keep those ties. I'm so happy to hear that you have a good worker, I know that was a concern for you in the past so good to hear that has turned around for you.

Good luck on the scope, don't worry about it. I'm sure you have seen enough posts here to know that it really isn't a big thing. You will do fine. Please let us know how the dermy appt goes for you. I have been really concerned for you there. I have rashes also that are caused by autoimmune problems so if you have any questions, please let me know.

I'm glad you went out and had a good time. It's good to go out with other people with problems; it creates less stress for you. Even if no one else has bowel problems, people who have some sort of life problem in general are better companions when you're down than someone for whom life has always been rosy.

I also think you should continue the classes. That everyone seems upbeat means that the classes must be working for them! And, by way of extension, they will probably also work for you. Happy, confidant people can rub off on you. Besides, going to therapy where everyone sounded like Eyeore wouldn't be very helpful, because they'd just bring you down.

I too dreaded the scope, but that's because I'm phobic about people touching my butt (bad experience when I was 5 with my mother having to give me an enema). But I was asleep the whole time, so it was nothing to worry about. The prep wasn't fun, but hey, it's not like you and me aren't used to diarrhea. It was just some more than normal. That wasn't the worst of it anyways: the fast and the swill I had to drink were the worst part; like I said, I was used to the D. Oh, and getting an IV line put in because the woman that did it was totally incompetent (first bad nurse I've ever had, though, so that was a fluke).
