I've been having some problems with IBS/constipation and that type of thing and have had several procedures to try to identify what is physically wrong and yesterday I had another procedure and the doctor said that from a physical stand point everything looks okay. He was able to spot scar tissue and there is some minor symptoms that are a result of the abuse but nothing that would cause the intensity that I have been feeling. He gave me some literature about the connection between the mind and the distress in the digestive system and i want to share with you something that I did not know. Even though the medical field is still at a loss as to the cause of IBS there is a science involved that is very interesting. I read literature that confirms that there is a scientific connection between the mind and the intestines. There is a strong nerve connection between the two because they develop in the same area in the embryo. After I thought about it for a moment it made so much sense. Think about when we emotionally eat or when we have pain in the pelvic area...the chronic constipation, etc. That part of our bodies is in turmoil because our minds are...it's our bodies receiving neurons messages directly from our minds that cause a host of problems in that area. For those of you that spend endless hours at the doctors office trying to discover why you have pain, bloating, etc.. in that area be advice that a medical procedure isn't necessary as our minds heal so will our digestive systems.

What would YOU do if you won the lottery?

I would work to get off of my meds altogether. (Years and years of taking meds that don't help have left me frustrated and fairly angry.) Treatment for mental illness is not for the...
