I have been very against the mental aspect of IBS, but actually, there seems to be a connection. If I really try to feel happiness, the stomach feels better (the C may stop). I am depressed but I have always blamed it on my constipation, but actually it seems like I have another depression before the IBS. It sounds strange, and I really dont like the logical approach to this, because it doesnt seems to make sence in all cases. But, there is a connection in my case. Perhaps if we try to be happy (in some strange ways) the problem may solve itself after a while. A year ago I took Zoloft and that didnt do anything. I guess the depression is too strong to be medicated. Perhaps happiness is what I need. Well, perhaps not. It doesnt really make sence after all. But lets give it a try.
