hey everybody, i was recently diagnosed with pi-ibs, and i cannot get these thoughts out of my mind, its like the thought of ending it is comforting to me because, if my pain, discomfort, etc ever gets too bad or lasts too long that i know i can just end my life and it would be over, i do not believe in god or any other rhyme or reason to how the universe/ earth works so it seems to easy. i have never experienced this before and it seems the anxiety and worrying about my symptoms is taking over my life and the only comfort i have is the thought i could end it that easily. I still have hope i will get better but after 4 weeks of this i just do not see an end in site, i see my life slipping, girlfriend problems cuz i never want to do ne thing and i am always down because of my illness, my grades are slipping and dragging my 3.8 down, my goals are slipping, i no longer think about my aspirations and dreams, just whether or not i will feel better tomorrow or not, i cannot sleep, i dont know what to do i feel like such a weak person inside, ppl deal with things 10 times worst then me and find a way to fight through it but i am not strong enuff to fight this. i love food and it kills me to see stuff i cannot eat, i look around and i become extremely jealous and angry that the ppl around me all have working normal digestive systems even though i should appreciate the blessings i have had in life. i am 19 years old and have never dealt with these emotions before i do not know how to combat em, i keep on slipping further and further into it. What should i do to reverse this cycle, the thing is my ibs is the root of the problem, without curing the ibs, how am i suppose to get rid of the feelings that come with it??

hi we en, jamiee here, in answer to your final question, your mind my friend. i am sorry for the pain and discomfort/depression you are facing, i think a trip to the doc would certainly help, esp for the depression. i am no expert in ibs, so all i can do is suggest strongly that you see your doc. hey, tell me about you? life my dear friend is so precious, and you are precious, you are a human being of this earth, with qualities that are unique to. keep posting ok. healing to u. jamiee,37,male.

Hi WeEn,

I think that you have to adjust to a different way of eating. You have to learn to look at food differently. So you can't have the things that you want. You learn to live with what you can have, and your tastes will change to like what is good for you.

Hang in there my friend, life is so prescious. And you are an important part of it. Think of the others around you who would be devistated if you were not here anymore.

Keep trying, get some counseling, that helps all of us.

Best wishes for a wonderful day.

Hugs, Karen
