Winter I am right there with you. I have CD too, and my anxiety tears my gut up. I use Xanax to help in those times. I take the lowest dose and it is enough to quiet my anxiety down without making me loopy. I can't travel without it anymore. My anxiety goes right to my gut everytime. I feel like I am flaring. But thanks to the Xanax and some therapy I have learned to recognize it and stop it in its tracks.
