I have my first appointment with a behavioral therapist on the 10th. I decided to try hypnosis, I was wondering if anyone has had results and what can I expect? I've tried 7 antidepressant had side effects from all of them, not real fond of that method. Anxiexty over IBS is much worse than actual symptons. Having an attack is the first thing I think of no matter what I have to do. I've recently been promoted in a job I'm confident I can do however...I am in meetings constantly and I am always thinking what if I have to leave etc, you all know the drill. Eventually I do have to excuse myself because I have talked myself right into an attack. So off to the therapist I go, I need to learn how to quit obsessing.
