issue 15 of here. in my head is subtitles ‘life with a chronic digestive disorder’ which pretty much describes this zine to a tee. cath writes about being diagnosed with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) two years ago; she writes about symptoms (hers and in general) food triggers, anxiety (as it causes many of her flare-ups) IBS and body image, coping techniques like safe foods, exercise, stress-relief etc, how to be a good friend and ally to people with gastric disorders, and SO MUCH MORE. a good read especially if you have gastric / digestive issues, but also if you don’t.
