Just curious if any of your GI's are paired with a clinical psycologist? My GI office took the liberty of adding in a visit to their clinical psycologist today.

Nope, never had that either. Maybe the psychologist is doing research on the impact having an IBD has on your psyche? Or maybe the psychologist is an intern?

That's so smart!. When I was young and often cried in my GI appointments it made him very uncomfortable and he had nothing helpful to say about my mental state. I was in need of help but all he could do was say, you need help.
49 year old female attorney, diagnosed UC/pancolitis 1985, no surgery but much suffering.
Asacol/5ASA 6x400 mg maintenance for 20+ years; use prednisone & Rowasa for flares. 
August 2008 sought care of naturopathic doctor. Food sensitivity test showed gluten, other intolerances; started diet without gluten, soy, dairy, tomato etc. Replete probiotic first, then Forte pills. 
Achieved remission for the first time in many, many years!? Seemed so, but colonoscopy Oct. 6 proved not so, heavy inflammation in ascending colon & will be using Rowasa again. But I AM better.
