I just needed to get on here and vent to those that I know can understand.
I have really not been feeling well lately and it is taking its toll on me. I am either always in the bathroom and/or in pain. I am constantly wore out and tired and could fall asleep at the drop of a hat. I also currently have a surgical hernia that I am dealing with and having troubles with. I work part time - 5 days a week though and have 4 kids. My family is wonderful, but I feel guilty for feeling bad all the time. I also am having some issues because I can't lose weight. I know that seems petty compared to everything else, but having been diagnosed with a body image problem years ago - it is something I struggle with everyday. I am not a skinny Crohny. The last time I went to the doctor, she said that my tests showed that bascially there is a 20 minutes time period from when I eat until when it empties from my system. I try to work out 3 or 4 times a week and still nothing. I am also tired of people acting like just because I am not rail thin - I must not be that sick. I just don't get it and it is really getting me down.
Like I said - not necessarily looking for answers - unless you have them. Just needed to vent to people who know what I am going through. Thanks for listening.
