I have been formally diagnosed with IBS-D/C, GERD, and colitis. I also know that I struggle with my body image. I am beginning to try to understand the connection between my symptoms, conditions, and self-image. I am sometimes not sure what causes the problems-- me or my stomach? I know it is not that cut and dry... I would really appreciate some feedback on this. Thank you!!!

Hiyasomedays my self image is #### because people say "you look ill/tired etc"
- well, they would if they had been up on the loo all night
i think having these probs is kindof expected (so i heard
) but maybe its to do with the anxiety as well?? i know if im feeling "yukky" i dont want to go out with my friends to pubs/clubs. a bloated stomach makes me feel unattractive as well and i worry that it'l show whn i wear my "nice" clothes
Guess that might be normal though...take careJulie
