Hello! New here, and going to hit you up with a major problem of mine that I don't see much about in support groups.
I'm having a stomach problem that's related to my anxiety and depression. Anytime I go out in public I'm terrified, and as a result I'll be running for a restroom. I've had to resort to starving myself the day before going out, and taking Imodium and wearing paper pants as a safeguard. I have actually soiled myself while I've been out, and it's demoralizing! I'm only in my 50's, and have regular colonoscopies and the findings are always normal. I've tried addressing the issue through diet and meditation, but have not had any luck in getting it under control. I can no longer work and have no social life. Fortunately, my husband is able to support us, otherwise I'd really be in trouble! Has anyone else had any experience with this?
