whenever i go into a library my ibs flares up n my digestive system starts working way overtime. i actually started taking advantage of it and going to the library whenever im really constipated to 'clear out' a bit. but its just really odd. i have no idea what my body has against libraries! does anybodys symptoms get worse in certain places?

i'm on 20mg citalopram anti-depressants atm but they ain't helping the anxiety even though the doctor said they will work after a whilethey have taken away my depression a bit but it's the anxiety that i want sorted out, if my anxiety wasn't so bad then maybe my ibs would not affect me as muchi'm a very anxious person, constantly thinking about things, thinking of the worst possible scenarios that could happenanytime i get on the bus to go up the town or get in a taxi to go to someone's house i always think "what if i ###### myself in the taxi or on the bus or even in public in front of everyone?" i actually picture it in my headit feels like constantly that my back passage is having spasms which is a really irritating feeling :(it tricks me into thinking some times that something actually popped out into my pants, i just put a bit of toilet in to block my tail end, i'm that paranoid about it lol

you seem to be a very astute person.im no expert on anxiety, but i do know of some things you might want to try. there are hypnotherapy cds that are meant for exactly this type of situation. its called IBS audio program 100. that has a pretty impressive success rate (even though it didnt work for me). and theres always Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. that works for a lot of people too. check out the forum on this site abt it-sorry i dont know how to post links
