Loc: NYC

Hey Tim....wow this sounds familiar I have to ride the subway (NYC) everyday to work and its a 15-20 min ride....30 on crowded days. it used to be a nightmare. panic attacks would hit me....or else i'd just be worried out of my mind and hence...would be sick. it didn't seem to matter how early i got up...the D would hit me about 10mins before i was ready to head out the door to work.

i also took imodium a lot. it got me through school when i moved to NYC. but it got to where it started a yucky cycle of C then the D would come back, i'd take more and the C was with me for days. just not good. but it was the only thing that worked to cork me up...so i took it almost everday at one time.

now that i'm on anti-anxiety drugs i don't take imodium anymore. i'm fine most days out of the week....i still have to eat sane b/c my stomach is just sensitive in general. i hope you find a solution....some of the advice here sounds great. high stress does indeed fuel bad attacks tho....i've been job-hunting for 1.5yrs now and the stress got to me so badly by spring of this year i was *seriously* plagued by ibs-d problems daily. i could barely function. i was lucky i had a temp job with a friend (still do) and it's not high-stress.

exercise in the morning can help....i'm in such a stupid good mood after i workout it helps keep my stomach relaxed too. good luck!
