I started to think of suicide too. No doctor for years wanted/REALLY tried to help me. So I have no idea how I didn't give up. people in class, in different colleges, at different times, said that I smell, when all I have is just lots of gases and I don't fart in public. I am still lost and except for the victims, nobody really cares about people with these problems. ''You just gotta live with it. You are fine. off with you''. ''-You have no smell. You are fine.'' <= said another doctor without even checking me with blood tests or even checking my stomach, or whatever else). And so on. It really sucks. I am in this boat because I was taking strong painkillers when I was in hospital. I was told it would give me a bad stomach, but I really had it bad and I needed to sleep, relax, as I had it really bad. I didn't even know I would be like that, like I am now. 5 years. It's a true hell. I am ashamed of myself, I can not be social, I can not say yes to a girl that wants to hear it, I can't do a thing. I am like a lone wolf now, that is sick beyond any help. Thanks for your post, TiredOfStinking. I try to get to gastroenterologist, but doctor has to allow me first, and she said that there is no need in it, at least for now. WTF! I am so pissed. It's easy to judge other people, but nobody really feels how it really is to be living in this hell.
