Living With A GI Disorder

We know it’s hard to talk about having a GI disorder. But people with IBS, colitis, Crohn’s and celiac disease need to speak up, because trying to hide their struggle can actually make it worse. GI issues are aggravated by stress and unhealthy eating habits. This often leads to increased anxiety. Assess your anxiety levels to better understand your situation. It’s a constant battle to manage embarrassing and painful symptoms with medication. Everyday responsibilities can be hard to accomplish, and social situations become difficult or impossible. How can patients end the shame, self-blame, anger, and loss of self-esteem?

AbleTo helps people living with GI disorders improve their symptoms by managing their emotions, understanding environmental triggers, and improving their coping habits. Participants learn to identify when self-defeating or anxious thoughts are getting in the way of healthy habits. They learn how important it is to reach out for social support and create a plan for improved nutrition, exercise, and sleep habits. Graduates leave with effective tools and strategies for taking control and making lasting changes in physical and emotional health.
