Have you ever been at your wits end??
I am not having a very good day. I guess I have a case of the "poor me's". First of all, I don't know what I did to deserve what is being handed tome right now. I was married mid-December, was enjoying the beginning of my new life with my new husband, then...BAM! I am cursed with every day diarrhea since mid-March. I mean every single day. WHY??? What did I do? Did I do this to myself because I'm a "nervous person"?? I've had so many tests at so many hospitals...been through the ringer...and all I can get out of any Dr., specialist, thearapist, is "we are pretty sure iot's IBS with diarrhea."
Okay, I can handle that...but I have plans for my life. I'm 26 years old (pretty young for all of this stuff.) I want to have children, and how can I do that if I'm on so many prescription drugs?? What happens if I go off of them?? I will be even more miserable again...more than I am even now. I just don't know what to do.
My hair is falling out and has been since May. (Diarrhea started in March.) I'm supposed to eat more because I"ve lost about 10 lbs (I weigh about 112lbs. now), but it makes me feel sick when I do eat most of the time. The GI specialist found GERD (acid reflus) while doing my EGD test. I'm just a mess. I tried going to a homeopathic DR. and he put me on 4 different supplements and I went off of the RX for Colestid. I thought I would try the "natural way" of treating this "so called" IBS. WHo knows, maybe it would work.
I have to go back teaching in about 2 weeks...I hope I feel better by then. I NEVER DREAMED that I would still be dealing with this for SOOOO long. It just makes me want to cry. In fact, I have cried, a lot. Antidepressants make me feel worse so I can't take them. (Plus, I don't want to be on them.)
HAs anyone ever heard of people woith IBS that have diarrhea EVERY SINGLE DAY over a long period of time?? I mostly read that people have it now and then, but NOT everyday. If you have had to deal with this everyday or know somebody who has had this diarrhea/loose stools everyday without 1 normal bowel movement during this entire time...please let me know and maybe I will feel better about this. I am pretty low right now.
