Waiting for what

I have been suffering so long with Skeletal degeneration and what they now say is "anklossing spondylitis "? I have Diverticular disease PTSD and agoraphobia among other ailments, I have been waiting patiently for treatment for my back have had the injections but nothing really helps! Wasted a Consultants time and my own yesterday going to an appointment for treatment i am already receiving? No matter how i sit or stand laydown pain is unbearable! Oramorph and Zomorph barely touch the pain,my stomache has been acting up yet again (diverticulitis ) I bring up blood and poop blood ! Dr sees me gives me the finger and says you got piles!! Doesn't even mention the diverticulitis or acknowledge the blood i bring up excuse the pun but its sickening how even though he can see my weight loss and how my skin colour has changed (yellowish tinge) I am thinner in the face and everywhere else apart from my stomache which is bloated ! I eat then am ill, I dont eat and am ill ?a no win situation!

Funny I believed that if I was patient I would get the treatment I obviously need,but to no avail. Perhaps the government think that people like me are not worth the expense of the treatment? I dont know I am not afraid just angry,i thought this year would be better but its not ! So I am laying down in pain Waiting ! Waiting for what? Treatment help what?

That. Is the million dollar question " Waiting for What?"

  • I am on the other sections ,this one is the one for depression hence my posting on here,I have been on health unlocked for a long time,I closed my previous account Del01 due to change in admin and moderating precess I found new mods appeared to have different ideas on how the place was ran so left,as a poster but as it has gone back to the original format or as close to it i rejoined , Hopefully admin and mods will be non judgemental and read from the same rules ( it does seem to be more like the original set up ! Thankfully) and thank you for your reply,I beleive my post is in the right section as it relates to how I feel i was not asking for help with my pain on the physical side its the despondancy and trying to figure why i bother?

  • Hi Del,

    Just wanted to add that if you have any issues with Administrators or moderating, please message me.

    Good to have you back.


  • If I had a problem I would pm admin and state what it is,Fortunately I speak my mind but am very fair! I am against over moderation as it is against everything H U stands for or at least stood for! It has almost always been a self moderating forum and rarely did moderators have to stand in and say something which is how I and many others like it tbh, and thankyou for your offer! Del

  • Ok my post did not seem to clearly state what I was trying to say or at least it seems like it!

    "Depression can cause pain, and Pain can cause depression! FACT!" I am sick of waiting for pain releif I am sick of my depression the falling down the deep dark pit! The pit where yes I have been suicidal but am too much of a coward to go through with it ! Or perhaps I dont want to cause someone else the pain of depression? Whoever finds you after the deed will undoubtedly be affected and I do Not want to be the cause for someone else's suffering!

    I am not an emotional person I try to use logic (logic is not logical) I keep my feelings to myself in real life,but can be honest on this site and say how I feel.

    I have again saved enough for when I really do give up,I will go to Dignitas, I have done this whilst still in a semi coherent state and not in the depressive state i am now! This is the point of my Question " I am waiting but waiting for what!" Am I waiting with hope in my heart that i can and will be cured? Am I waiting for some kind of magic or miracle? Or am I just waiting to leave this mortal coil? "Waiting For What???" I have always fought my depression and my physical ailments but I no longer have the fight within me! Can't people see that ? I don't have the strength anymore.I really feel like I am drowning I am losing my fight yet i am even fighting that! Do I make sense? I am not suicidal I am bloody scared ,scared i am really going to give up and just stop, I have never been good at saying what i mean i just hope Someone can understand what I mean? So sorry I am not as strong asvI thought!
