Irritable bowel.: The stool being normal is ok.The gooey stuff as you say is only stool with more water. The colon develops a rapid transit time and the stool does not get the water taken out. This is very common in irritable bowel. The stress and anxiety is very common to create this picture.This is a physical sign of what is done to the body by stress.
