Binkynoo, it's well known that the stomach is the most receptive irgan to anxuety, the one that complains the most. You probably know your doctorquite well by now but for your own reassurance go see them again and tell them the latest. That's what doctors are there for. Also get something to take to stop you having to visit the loo too often whilst you'revon holiday, get the doc to prescribe something.

Next, you need a good book to read on holiday. I suggest 'Self help with your nerves' by Claire Weekes available from Amazon. It will change your life and point you in the direction of recovery as it has for untold thousands. And don't forget the sun tan cream.
