Hey there, new to the forum here! Sorry to hear about your situation. It can definitely be tough when you live in a rural area and the ER isn't exactly a quick trip. Your questions are not silly at all! When it comes to managing when you can't stop pooping long enough to get off the toilet and go to the ER, I suggest keeping a bucket or something similar nearby. That way, you can take care of business while still staying relatively clean. I also recommend visiting a physiotherapy clinic. They specialize in helping people with mobility and strength issues, so they may be able to offer some solutions for getting to the ER more easily. Plus, they can help with any ongoing issues you may be having.
