Hi Guys, I am doing my final year project on the topic of IBS, which is considered a chronic functional disorder. The study investigates at whether anxiety, depression, resilience, stress, mindfulness and personality differences are associated with the severity of IBS symptoms. My interest comes from personal experience of IBS, which I find most painful when/if combined with stress. I would like to note that my hypothesis is NOT that IBS is in "our heads", however I do think that the symptoms become more severe under certain circumstances. The study is a bit longish and will take around 15 mins to complete, but if you have some spare time, please please help me get the data so I can run the analysis and see whether there are any links. I promise I will let you know of my findings (all data will be kept confidential) and the results will hopefully help to understand the link between each factor and the severity of symptoms. I hope this post doesn't bother you guys too much! Thank you to all of you who have already participated in my study, I appreciate your help very very much!!!
