"The will to chill" - I love it!!

I added my remark just because I used to try to will or ignore my IBS away, and it was a miserable failure. "Willing it away" was fighting it like it was an attacker. "Ignoring it" was just pretending I didn't have it and eating marginal stuff to be polite.

What did work was accepting that I have IBS and choosing to do what was needed to make myself feel better. Sometimes it means forcing myself to mellow the heck out, sometimes it means forcing myself to ask for special meals in restaurants (going against my Midwestern upbringing ). So it definitely takes a strong will, but one that treats IBS and my gut like the permanent companions that they are, not enemies to be vanquished.
