Dear Brokenwing, you can't give up. You have two children and a husband and yourself. You may not get real help for a while. I know. It's been so many years for me but when you say "give up" you're really talking about ceasing to exist (ie death).Don't do this.It was all I could think about for years because nobody could or would help, and believe me, another operation or laproscopic procedure may only make things worse. They did for me. I don't have many answers but keep trying to talk it out or find your faith . Anger is destructive, love and nature heal. My husband gets so angry he yells at me whom he's angry that no one can help and it only sends me into realms of agony that are indescribable. But I'm not killing myself, I've decided that much. Someday someone will figure out what to do about our pain and we'll be okay again. Don't Give up please. Sally G.
