I love this blog because people always say “I know how you feel” but in reality they don’t. People here actually do.
I know suicide is a “permanent solution to a temporary problem”. But what do you do when your problem is chronic? I was diagnosed with Crohn’s Disease at the age of 14 in January of 2009 and I’ve had fourteen surgeries, I currently have a temporary colostomy, I’ve had over 20 kidney stones, no medications work for me, I’m chronically anemic. To top it all off I already had clinical depression and generalized anxiety disorder. This is going to sound terrible, but sometimes I wish I had an illness that would either go away, or just kill me. Anything but living like this for the rest of my life.
