Hi Shawn,

On the job front I think you made a good call, and I would love to pack it in as I know in myself that the work-related stress is a major contributor, if not the underlying cause for my IBS. However, having just bought a house last year and with the job market as it is I am really concerned about making ends-meet; particularly when I have a condition that may prevent me holding down another full-time job (better the devil you know eh?).

I probably sent out the wrong message with the 'Doom and gloom' statement. Overall I am still pretty positive, but I am getting a lot of grief from my boss about getting back into the office which I would love to do...but is just not practical because of this condition.
My main issue is with the journey to/from work and not the job itself. To be honest I know I have a lot of anxiety over the trip due to a number of 'IBS near misses', but I think this is borderline phobic now and I am starting to get nervous whenever I leave the house. Being positive though, I have scheduled an appointment with a councillor that specialises in stress and anxiety disorders...so let's see how that goes.

Anyway, things seem to be settling down again on the gut front but it tends to be a 1-2 days good, 2-3 weeks bad cycle which is where a lot of the frustration is coming from.

Thanks for the book suggestion, and all your advice...I will give it a try.

Best regards,
Tim
