Well I have been in Omaha since January 15th, and finally made it to the gastro guy, well I take anxiety medication, xanex. Well I have always suffered with Anxiety problems and depression but never got it seen to when I was a teen, well he looked at my file and told me well you certainly don't need more tests as you have had every test known to man so I agreed, then came the unwanted interview, got talking about life, child hood, and so on. Then he asked why I was never sent to a phyciatrist(ignore spelling long day at work) so I bluntly told him that before IBS hit me I hated doctors, hospitals so I hid everything from everyone and never saw a doctor till I was 19 for IBS. Well he wasn't very happy about that answer and when he saw my arms, well I was a self mutalator when I was a teen and okay I won't lie when I loose it I take it out on myself. So he said well you need to go to one and go see an internal medicine doc, he couldn't prescribe me the meds I am on as hes not my regular doc. Well I was pissed as it will take someone to manually pull me to go see a shrink, I hate talking about stuff inside to family and friends let alone a complete stranger. Then he said, I have a feeling that your IBS is linked to my past, well I agreed I know that it is. It started when I was young but fully came out at 19. Too bad you can't keep everything swept up under the rug. Anyone else think IBS is linked that way? Just curious.
