    Because of a chronic health issue which has been ongoing for quite some time. The pain is unbearable and I can't take it anymore.

    Hey theresnohelp.
    Firstly welcome to sf.
    Secondly, what kind of health problem do you have that you feel it necessary to end your life?

    I'm sorry to meet under these circumstances but I hope you find some kind of comfort/peace here.

    Well. It's a long story but here goes.

    I've suffered from Chronic Constipation for quite some years but in the last 2 years it's just been a nightmare. I've tried absolutely everythere there is to try. I have to take 4-5 Laxatives all at the same time together to have any kind of bm.

    I had a Colonoscopy done which did not show anything wrong except a long colon.

    Been to the ER, I don't know how many times over the last 2 years for this. They don't do except maybe do an x-ray, give me more laxatives (which does not except make me vomit and get very painful cramps)

    Now i've been waiting since October to get one last test done before I can see the Bowel Surgeon. The specialist i'm seeing spoke to the person who does the test and was told I would be done on his next round of these tests. Well. It's January 15 and still haven't heard anything. Spoke to the specialists office last week and they still haven't heard anything either. This is just absurd and ridicious. The last time I saw my specialist he even said this test should have been done by now.

    I've comtemplated committing suicide a few times in the past over this, because of the pain and I just don't ever see this getting any better.

    keep chasing re: the testing, sometimes you have to. i am going through similar trying to get home care at the mo. like you have a chronic pain condition and take morphine but even that doesn't touch it all the time. you may find an advocate could be useful.. do a google search for one in your area. they can chase things up and fight your corner. i hope you find this forum helps you and you get help soon for your med condition

    Sometimes you have to continue to push and get in their faces to get anything done. I hope you are able to get relief soon so you can take the option of suicide off the table for you. :hug:

    You should try flushing out your colon with water every now and then to help with your chronic constipation. The easiest way to do this is to drill a hole in a bottle of water and squirt the water in. Also, take a spoonful of metamucil and water before bed each night. I used to suffer from constipation too, but I don't anymore. It's worth a shot. :smile:
