Hi there and welcome aboard.There are a lot of wonderful people here who can probably provide you with a lot of support. Many of us are (or have been) in the same boat.Anxiety, eating disorders and IBS all tend to run together, by my understanding. It's not at all unusual that you have all three, but they definitely all need to be addressed. Your symptoms (anxiety about eating in front of other people, etc.) are consistent with eating disorders-- but that doesn't mean that there isn't an underlying physical problem or that your issues are "all in your head".You may want to talk to your doctor about Buspar. It's a pretty effective non-addictive anxiety med and great for weaning off of stronger drugs. Best of luck to you.
