hi guys, I'm 41 and I have had a longstanding issue with binging and overeating. Last year, after a bad binging bout, I was hospitalised with terrible pain, and it turned out i had a bowel blockage, except the hospital failed to recognise this, and after 5 days of pain and went into sepsis, they rushed me in for an emergency colostomy.
I nearly died, and was put on life support..I fought for my life in intensive care for 3 weeks... I am really lucky to be alive!
( I am suing the hospital for negligence)
I now have to lose weight to get ready for colostomy reversal surgery but im so traumatised by what happened to me that im still binging.. i havent learnt my lesson. I binge to cope with stress and i really need to stop and to lose the weight.
( i cant get any counselling here in the uk for my probs on the nhs)
I'm really struggling with coping with a colostomy, i'm scared about the next operation.
I also have severe m.e, fibromyalgia, osteo arthritis of spine hands and feet, and hypothyroid.Plus BPD and PTSD
It's all got a bit much really!
take care, bluebell
