Ever since I was a kid, it really frightened me that everyone was going to die. I caught crohns disease when I was 16, and part of my colon removed and 3 ft. of my small entestine. My skin problems started around that time period also. for almost 30 years I had constant diarriah. And my skin progressively got worse. Life was liveable though, I just had to go to the bathroom a lot, and just wore old clothes, and stayed out of the wind because of my skin. I didn't work to much and lived at home with my parents. About a year ago, my crohns turned into IBS-C. Irratable bowel syndrome with constant constipation. Everything I've taken for it, seemed to work fine at first for a couple of weeks then stopped working. I have to take massive doses of laxatives, enemas and fiber. Just to stop all the excess stool built up from shutting off my urinary function. My skin is constantly erupting, and I can't find any new clothes that don't make the situation worse. I have a limited amount of clothing I can wear, and what I have is falling apart. I've tried endless pieces of new and used clothing, but only very few pieces can I wear. (*Fabrics are all processed differently, no matter what the tag says) I was in the Emergency room 6 months ago, not being able to urinate. And they couldn't even get a catheter in me. They gave me cypiro a antibiotic which let me have stools and urinate fine for about 10 days. then completly stopped working. Since then it's been one laxative after another. This morning, I took 8 doses of Mirilax, 3 doses of Senna, a half bottle of Mag. Citrate and some metamucil. The Mag. Citrate is very potent, it also makes my skin break out more when I use it.
