I look forward to reading the longer post!
In the meantime, would you be up for telling us how you went about getting CBT?
Did the you seek out a CBT therapist?
Did they know about shy bowel, or did you have to educate them about it first?
Any tips on getting a good CBT therapist?
How did you work on the behavioural part of the problem?
Do you have any co-existing digestive problems like irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) or crohns disease (as these can often form a vicious circle with the shy bowel and make it a much tougher nut to crack)?
