Hi Marianne. As you can see, I'm really slow at answering posts. It's just after 5:00 AM and I've been up since 4:00 as I couldn't sleep. I think I'm trying to get an intestinal blockage. I've had a lot of abdominal and rectal pain lately and my bms look like they've been pressed flat. I am having trouble going too and I didn't used to have any trouble at all till this past week. I went to the doctor yesterday and he wants me to have a colonoscopy next week. I have surgery on my toe day after tomorrow so he wants to wait till after that. He also wants me to start antidepressants (I wonder why - since I just started bawling while sitting in his office). I'm usually a very happy person, but it's been all downhill since my Hysterectomy almost 2 years ago. It's hard NOT to be depressed when you hurt all the time and it gets worse instead of better. I guess I don't have to tell anyone on this list about that though! You're very young to be going through all of this. I should feel very fortunate that I didn't start this nightmare till I was almost 50. I turned 50 in January. I've never been vain about my age and it's never bothered me before, but somehow the sound of 50 really sucks. I guess it's that change in decades. My oldest daughter just turned 29 and she thinks she's old already! My poor husband listens to me and is always sympathetic, but I get so tired of hearing me start to whine everytime I open my mouth even when I vow not to say anything. It's hard not to talk about how you feel when you feel bad all the time. I sometimes feel sorrier for him and my daughter having to listen to me than I do for me. I still wish I could live with the surgeon who did this to me for a few months just so I could make his life a living Hell! Rosie
