Deep breaths jt80. Deep breaths. Force yourself to calm down. Watch a silly movie, read a fluff piece of fiction if you have good books lying around. Are you a Harry Potter fan by any chance? If so, re-read one of the HP books. Something to takes your mind off your anxiety.

As for taking your own life, please don't ever let it get to that point. This can be controlled or be better controlled.

What I fear for you is you had your expectations set extremely high. Your GI tract has not been operating normally for some time now or at a predictable pattern, at the very least. It takes a long time for the bowels to calm down, to be retrained if you will, etc.

After both my colon surgeries, I had to be very patient for my bowels to wake up. They are touchy organs, VERY touchy!

Your colon has been thru the wringer so once you realize this, and then give your body the proper amount of time to adjust and settle down, I predict things will begin to get better for you.

Then again I could be way off base but I do know this, that when I get extremely stressed out over something (last 4 weeks, my mother's head trauma/stroke but now she's home and doing much better), my bowels are a mess. And I mean a real nightmare of a mess. I almost have to pretend in my head that nothing out of the ordinary is going on in my life when in fact there is something causing me stress. I basically lie to my body. I know that's going to sound really, really wacky but it does work for me. I sit on the pot, close my eyes, pretend in my wacky female way that I am normal and you know what, sometimes I do feel my insides relax a bit.

I of course wish you my very best, as I always do.

I just think you are expecting things to just return to normal, like flipping on a light switch or at the snap of your fingers. And it just doesn't happen that way.

Perhaps reading up on how the GI tract works might give you a better understanding as to why you're having so much trouble?

jt80 - did I ever tell you about my projecting forward trick? If not, I look forward to a date when things will be better. For example, tell yourself, one week from now, you'll be feeling better. One month, etc. I did this while in labor with my first baby! Honest, I did. It somewhat worked. LOL Along with an epidural. But I really implemented this mind trick after my first colon surgery, I was in severe pain, the worst of my life, over labor/childbirth! But I kept telling myself - one week from now I have to feel better than this. One month, this time next year, etc. It does work. It takes your mind off of what is going on at that very moment.

I'm glad you could watch something on TV to take your mind off things.

This would be a good time to watch a hilarious movie too. One of my all time faves is Planes, Trains and Automobiles (RIP John Candy). I could just laugh outloud right now and almost recite scenes verbatim! I'm sure you have your favorite hilarious movie, that you could watch over and over again. If so, keep it handy.

Take care.....night.

Okay, one question jt80 - are you glad NOW that you watched the VMAS?

LOL!!

I'm sure you were thinking - "IBS who? what?" - as Kanye made a complete fool of himself huh?

Much better than a silly movie or book to read........reality at its best. Or worst!
