ANXIETY

The anxious me

Those occasions had made me so anxious about going anywhere where there wouldn’t be a toilet. I could not even make a ten minute journey in the car without assessing where the nearest toilet was and even stopping to use it. Even if I did not need the toilet I would stop to use it as I would worry that if I didn’t then I would need it when there wasn’t a toilet.
Obviously it was not just me that was being affected by this. My husband and my children were affected too. We could not go on days out anymore as I would worry about needing the toilet if we went away from home. My husband was constantly having to try to calm me down. Knowing I was ruining things for my children and husband made me feel very low about myself, but no matter what I thought I could not pull myself out of the anxiety over my IBS.
