If anyone knows of a therapist in the greater L.A. area (or Orange County) who understands IBS problems, please let me know! I've been dealing with this for 10 1/2 years (I'm D, with lotsa G). It affects every aspect of my life. My relationship is suffering very badly, I'm afraid of the future (how am I going to earn a living), and I'm just tired of feeling disgusting, alone, and constantly worried. I'm only 25 and want to learn how to NOT let this problem get the best of me. My D can somewhat be controlled with Immodium (I should buy stock), but the G is the real problem. I'm one of those "constant emitters". I'm not even aware that it's being emitted (until people let me know)so I have absolutely no control. Food avoidance does not work. I'm at home caring for my newborn right now, but the thought of returning to the workplace (even part-time) fills me with dread. I love my baby, but I'm not cut out to be a full-time stay-at-home mom, either. I have a Master's degree, darn it, and I'm very skilled. But, none of that matters. Help!!
