Hello all, It's been a while since I've posted here, but I am in need of some help. During my TMS journaling, more often than not I've found that the things that seem to be the biggest "stressors" for me are just personality traits and current stresses, and have less to do with my past. My symptoms (IBS related) clearly seem to pop up during times of stress. Right now I am in the middle of exams week, and my symptoms are absolutely terrible. Despite journaling every day, take time for myself to decompress, getting lots of sleep, and generally not feeling stressed, my stomach still seems to be responding. I've even tried thanking the condition, for reminding me to take care of myself, but nothing seems to be working. I was wondering if anyone had an experience like this where despite their best efforts to relieve the stress, their body continued to react? And if so what can be done about it? I'm really struggling here and the condition is actually making me stressed where I wasn't before so I could really use some help! Thanks y'all, and have a good day!
