Years ago I started having really bad abdominal pains, constipation and/or diarrhea, swollen stomach and always full of gas, constant indigestion. The pain can get so bad the I am doubled over in tears unable to stand up straight. Lately, It has been getting worse. The pain happens more often (pretty much daily) and is much more intense. I have gone for both Abdominal and vaginal ultrasounds, a Catscan, x-rays, I am currently waiting on two calls for appointments, one for a scope and one with the gyno. I was lucky, and I was on EI for the last 6 months but my EI ran out a few weeks ago. I feel so much guilt because my boyfriend is paying for everything. I went out and got a part-time job and my second scheduled shift I spent 7.5 hours at the emergency. I can't expect a new employer to hire me or understand my situation and I cannot go on without having an income. Please any advice/suggestions would be appreciated. I live in Nova Scotia, Canada.
