  • Extreme constipation not responding to daily dose of Miralax fiber laxative with 3 Dulcolax tabs and water enema, for over one week. Trying to find nuke or rocket-propelled grenade, but I'm a middle-aged accountant and don't have the contacts. Am considering eating nothing but raisins for a week but not sure I can survive long enough for this to work. Also extremely depressed to the point of disorientation and almost constant suicidal ideation.
