For the last twelve years I have had lots of stomach pains, diarrhea, accidents etc. I am feeling a lot better now that I am gluten free. But I still get anxious when I travel, or when I know the bathroom is a long distance away. My husband travels a lot with school kids, and I would just love to go with him, but the fear of having an accident keeps me from going anywhere. I will travel with him, but am afraid to travel with other people, having an accident is just so embarrassing. Do we ever get "regular" again?

We urge all doctors to take time to listen to your patients.. don't "isolate" symptoms but look at the whole spectrum. If a patient tells you s/he feels as if s/he's falling apart and "nothing seems to be working properly", chances are s/he's right!

I found a book at the library that was very helpful with anxiety called "Fearless Living: (something more...)" by Judith Marquart (sp?). It's also available from Amazon. Come to think of it, I think I may check it out again....I'm in need of a refresher
btw, does anyone have any advice on how to help dh's deal with this sort of thing? Mine is very understanding, but still....feels limited in going places sometimes, though tell him to go solo or whatever, if i just don't feel well. I may post this over in the "friends of" section...
