Your exactly right!! We do have some control over our "thinking" about IBS and the symptoms we are having. An example is a couple of weeks ago my new nephew was being baptized and my son and his g/f were the Godparents. Needless to say I was very touched my sister asked them. I ate breakfast and immediately started with horrible cramps, which landed me in bed. Every time I tried to get up the cramps were worse...in and out of the bathroom I went with no relief whatsoever..which is not common, usually something happens. I started to cry and get so mad that I was going to miss it. Then when his g/f came to the house I explained I wasn't going to be going, which broke my heart. I went and laid back down in bed and then told myself IBS was not going to control my life!!! I was not going to miss this!!! I got up, literally threw clothes on and went to the church, on a wing and a prayer!!! I looked pale and horrible...but I made it!!! I even felt good enough afterwards to go to my sisters for a while!! Sooo long story short, I do think there is a mindbody connection to a point. My belly still isnt' back to "normal" but its getting there. I have a lot of stress right now which isn't helping matters!!!
