After going through a somewhat OK time for a while, today I got the most awful bout of pain, cramps, and big time diarreha(about 15 times within 4-5 hours that I can ever remember. The only time that was close was about 2 yrs ago and the dr thought it was food poisoning.( I did not). I have had all the tests and all they up with was the "Its Bull S***" syndrome!! I just know this has to be something worse than IBS >I took 6 Imodium, 3 kaopectate, 1 Xaxax and it did not even touch it. I went and went til I felt dehyraded, I have been drinking fluids all day. I could not even get out to do errands and being a widow , I have to do it all myself. What is really pissing me off is , I am about to get a yellow lab puppy next month , I have always wanted one and this will probably be my last chance , I am 61 and if that dog lives 10-12 yrs I will be too old for a dog that size... or maybe I will die before the dog!!!How can I take care of a poor pup when I cannot even take care of myself. My beloved pet that I had to put down in March because of cancer ( he was 13) just knew that I was sick and he would lay by my side all day , some times days and not complain as long as I could crawl to the door to leave him out and get his food and water.....but this is not so with a pup!! This rotten evil disease takes all the pleasure out of my life , I cannot even think of getting a dog to keep me company. I have no one else, famliy dead and so is my husband. I hate what this disease is doing to me it is making me feel like I donot deserve anything in life ,, just go sit on a toliet til I die. If I could find a dr, I will get these guts ripped out of me in a New York min. I need a pill to really paralyze these rotten intestines , so that I will only go once or twice aweek, that is how much I hate going to the bathroom. My drs will not give me any pills with a narcotic, allthe ones here are running scared from the ins. companies, while I sit and suffer. Sorry to be so long winded, but this is the worst I have been, mentally and physically.
