Hi everyone, I'm a new member to this group. I have read the posts now and then and decided to get brave and explain my situation in case someone can suggest something to help me. I have been praying for a long time, but still haven't felt good in a long time. Well here goes, I've been in almost constant discomfort for about 4 years now. I have always had trouble with c all my life. But, it didn't really effect my life before the last few years. But in the last few years I have had surgery for endometriosis, and hemerrhoids. I spend literally hours in the bathroom every day. I have both d and c now. If I don't take something I have c and if I take something I spend hours in there. I've tried all kinds of herbs. Either way, I never feel finished. I feel like I still need to go all the time. There is a constant rectal pressure. It's very, very uncomfortable. I drink a lot of Dr. Pepper and can't seem to stop that, but I'm trying. I am trying very hard to keep going one day at a time. I like my job and Church and just keep praying that God will help me somehow to get healthy again so that I can keep going and hope to have a good life with God's blessing. It helps to know I'm not alone in this fight. I would appreciate any suggestions. Thanks.
