Hey Maria,

Good point. In fact, after I read my post I thought that it didn't come across exactly as I would have liked.
I didn't mean the mind-gut connection in any sort of neurological disorder, but like you said about them triggering symptoms. I just meant it like.. you know how there is a connection, for everyone, with their stomachs? Like feeling nervous as "butterflies" or "a knot" in one's stomach.. If you hear bad news, people say it feels like a blow to their gut. You know what I mean?
I have been in the situation too with one doctor telling me that I just had to stop being sick when I wanted to, because it was all in my head. When I left, I was absolutely furious. Livid even. I do feel much worse when I feel emotionally strained, but I have had days where everything is carrying on as normal, having a good day, and BAM! I'm really sick. Those are the most frustrating times, I think.

I just feel like we have to acknowledge the affect our stress levels and things have on our bodies so that if the diet isn't working by itself, there are other things to address before writing it off completely. I definitely agree 100% that the anxiety and stress and everything can stem from the initial symptoms and just take everything into a really bad cycle.
When my IBS got so much worse a few years ago, the anxiety about leaving the house and things was definitely BECAUSE of my symptoms and then made them worse at the same time. But I don't believe they were in any part a cause of my IBS either.

It's funny that I spend so much time trying to convince everyone that I do not have a psychological problem, there really is something wrong with me, and then this. LOL.

Hope that's more clear!
Steph
