Re: Fascinating- I am not alone

From: C. Mitchell


What can I say... Welcome to the club!! :) *hug*

I know since I've been able to label the symptoms I've started seeing a psychologist because in my case, stress contributes to me having intestinal disturbances. So instead of keeping stuff bottled up, and since I don't feel like I can talk openly and freely to my parents or my husband etc etc, I started seeing a psychologist and I just dump on her... verbal throw-up. Well believe it or not, it's actually somewhat helping as I haven't had any symptoms for a bit now *knock on wood*.

Since being in my mid 30s, I just know my body isn't able to cope with baggage the same way it used to, so unfortunately, my vvs were accompanied by panic attacks for the past year.. and boy, those are NOT pleasant.

Hope you find what gives you balance in your life, in the meanwhile, good luck!
