Hi all, I've just joined after googling and stumbled across this site.

I've suffered with anxiety and IBS since I was around 13 in 41 now so I've never known any different.

I have complex thoughts which trigger bowel movement and I don't understand why I can't just be normal like most people. I've tried medication, CBT and counciling but I feel like my issues are so deep ingrained I will never feel different.

Anyway hello everyone

Stay well

Have you given hypnotherapy any consideration? A friend of mine has been trying this for sleep incontinence with promising results.

Hello Scott, welcome to the forum it's good that you joined as everyone can give great advice and help while you are here. Like you my issues were burried so deep and ingrained in me that I never thought therapy would help, but it did and I am so grateful I stayed with it but I had to dig very very deep in my mind and heart to get the help and sort the deep rooted pain and grief, so I would say stick with a counsellor or therapist and if it takes a long time then so be it as you will come out feeling better.
