Nope Nope...My IBS is not in my head... that would be the wrong end....Seriously, some good information here as usual. I believe any weak spot in the body will be made worse by negative thinking and stress. I don't understand the totatl chemcial reactions that take place but I know that they do.And sometimes I believe it is our deepest fears that control our bodies and we don't always even know what they are. I believe that they are buried very deep and not at the surface to jump out at us. My Dr. puts it like this...somtimes you have to get out of your bubble and stop thinking that things will happen; learn to stop the viscious cycle that we can fall into without realizing it and then when we do realize it we don't always know how to get out of it.
