I have been with my wife for 22 years and I have had IBS for about 1 year and a half. Just came out of nowhere. One day I am fine and the next I am driving 100 MPH to get to a bathroom. Been struggling ever since. Had all the tests and have tried chiropractic therapy, the hypno tapes, Heather's suggested diet, the teas and fiber, and now accupuncture and chinese herbs. Nothing seems to really help. Still feel like crap all the time. Meditation is next on the list (I also practice Tai Chi). I am told that my IBS is due to untreated work related PTSD and hypervigilence. My accu-doc says that it is perfectly normal to feel angry and depressed about my IBS but to not let it overwhelm me. I just cannot accept that I am going to feel like this forever. I refuse to believe that something isn't "wrong" with me physically. I will fight this. Fighting is what I am good at.
