My IBS was non-existant all summer long, and has really only come back for Labor Day weekend and a few attacks here and there. This to me is the weirdest part because I had the most stressful summer.

I'm just like this! When things are *really* stressful, I don't get sick and I don't have IBS. I'm like a friggin' machine. Once things go back to ordinary stresses, I fall apart and sometimes feel like I can't even handle emptying the dishwasher. It takes a while to "process" the stressful time, and I have to be extra gentle to myself during that recovery period.

I had a fantastic counselor in grad school - she was getting her PhD in psych while I was doing my astro PhD. It was nice to talk to someone outside my family and outside my department, and she never freaked out when I cried. I knew she was a good match when she picked up a pattern of mine on the first appointment! (I had some bad counselors in the past, too - no insights or just stupid ones.)
