I have been suffering from a panic disorder for several years since a horrible car accident, however in the last few months it has taken a horrible twist. I started becoming intolerant to certain foods, and unfortunately had a diarrhea episode where I did not make it to the loo. Since then being in a situation where I am away from a toilet fills me with such fear that it actually induces diarrhea. I take imodium every day now, simply so I can get out of the house. I am currently receiving CBT therapy, however it does not seem to be working. Please Please is there anybody who has had either a similar experience, or knows how to calm my irrational body/mind. I feel like such a fool,
thank you.
