Your story is my story
04/22/05 07:59 AM

Except that I must eat Gluten free as well as IBS safe. And I have delayed gastric emptying and a non functioning gallbladder and have recovered from a long long term eating disorder. I too have tried everything I can think of to alleviate my constipation and chronic debilitating pain. I do the same things that others have tried. Yet, they have found some degree of stability and improvement, while I only get worse and ultimately more depressed and hopeless as more and more treatment options get eliminated because they don't work. I fear I have run out of options and that this will just be my life from now on. Pain and constipation and misery.

Now, I surely hope that your last statement saying that "this is what you will do" came out of frustration and that you are not serious. You have not tried ADs yet and they could help you tremendously. You have not tried everything, so you still have some pretty good options left for yourself that could help you.

Hasn't anyone else felt this desparate though? Are Linx and I the only one who ever felt that going to Heaven where there will be freedom from pain would be a welcome event to the pain and misery? I'm not advocating suicide by any means. But honestly, hasn't anyone else even thought about it? I guess if you are helped by the diet or by meds or an SFS you wouldn't feel this hopeless because you have found some relief at least. But coming from someone who hasn't I must admit that Linx is not alone in her frustration and hopelessness, unfortunately.

Again, not trying to scare anyone or turn this board into a suicide help line Just want to know if anyone else has ever had this thought? Or am I worse off than I know and totally off base.
