No problem: Only worry about color if there is red-blood, no color ie pale or white or tarry black. Color changes based on what you eat.
Dr. Martin Raff

Stool color: Unless the stool is colorless, jet black or contains bright red blood would not worry about this. What you describe is quite normal. Would suggest, however, that you see a clinical psychologist or psychiatrist and have your anxiety disorder managed professionally. Good luck.
