Thread: if I don't resolve this soon, i'm going to end it

  1. #11
    Maybe a VERY conservative injection of Botox into the anal sphincter would relax it just enough to allow you resume digital stim. Aside from that, and assuming you can wean yourself off the opiates (or any other constipating meds), using the Peristeen system can help you resume your bowel program. I can certainly appreciate the urgency of agony you're going through, and a colostomy may ultimately prove the best remedy, but if there's a rational alternative approach I would certainly encourage you to explore that first. Feel better soon, man!

    also along with the above suggestions doing your bp every day instead of every other day may help also.

    I agree with this. My pain level skyrockets when my program is unsuccessful for just one day. Also, have you tried Enemeez?

    Tim-you sound pretty pissed off! I appreciate that. Life is more than difficult!
    As a sober addict/alcoholic, let me share my experiences.
    As a reformed drunk, I have two choices every morning I wake to: to live or to die.

    I can go down any number of rabbit holes of desperation, negativity, and anger. All of which will ultimately lead me back to a drink or a drug
    which will, over time, kill me!

    Or I can change my attitude and find value in my compromised life. Your new attendant? Your supportive community here? How the sun warms your skin? How a stranger walking by notices you and looks you in the eye, smiling, and acknowledging your existence? There are things to be grateful about.

    Jim was stating something that kept me sober and coming back to (AA) the rooms. People would say "keep coming. It gets better" and they were right.
    The whole world changed into a delightful playground. All the things that stalked me, waiting for the other shoe to drop stopped......with a simple change in MY attitude! My journey today is informed by possibility.
    Every day holds possibility and promise. Promise

    Please choose life!

    Just an aside, because I know gas is your major complaint - gas now passes freely and never twists me up like it did before, constipated or not.

    Yes! and you can store your farts for
    an obnoxious release of noxious effluvia when you unsnap and depress the bag!
    One of the few things a gimp can outdo an AB on.

    Do you get out any and can you push yourself around? The more motion you can get for your body the better. Get in a car and ride down bumpy roads if you have to. Not having this will slow your digestion down too.
