Have been religiously adhering to IBS-Mike Mahoneys tapes and am just about to complete the course. Don't know whether it has helped-probably not but wonder if it is detrimental to always be checking this site. Am always thinking IBS-d and its problems. Do you think that always checking in on this forum makes things worse-deepening the groove in the record springs to mind. I know if feels good to know that I'm not alone but maybe I think about it too much. Before internet technology I wouldn't have been so in tune with things and maybe this makes me worse-um...not sure!
