As this article points out the link between abdominal pain in children leads to anxiety and depression as adults, I can’t help but think about GAPS (Gut and Psychology Syndrome).

Most of us know someone who suffers with mental illness. In my case, it is both my son and me. I have anxiety and depression. He has a yet to be diagnosed disorder that looks like bi-polar, schizoeffective, anxiety, depression or whatever mood disorder that I now believe may be caused by GAPS (Gut and Psychology Syndrome). Whatever it is, we live with the stigma and it is not fun. Interesting that addiction is now “socially acceptable” by most, primarily because so many celebrities are talking about it. Glenn Close is a celebrity who is talking about mental illness. Her sister is bi-polar. We need more celebrities talking about mental illness–those who have it.

We need to change perception in the battle of Fear and Shame for those suffering with mental illness.
