<p>God bless you for this site.Sharing with ppl who UNDERSTAND helps!<br />@62, I was dx with very invasive breast cancer.Since I had such fierce cancer, I was given LOTS of VERY strong chemo.One is KNOWN to ruin heart function.But the one that brought me here was one made of bark of a literally poisonous tree.THAT one, poisonous in toto, caused the oncologists to give out Immodium like M&amp;Ms in the chemo room.<br />After 6 months of hard chemo, I was given a colonoscopy(!!!) although I was BARELY well enough not to live on the toilet.I begged the doc, but he said their usual thing:"You'll be fine."I WASNT.<br />I had mucho diarrhea , and took Immodium daily.<br />GRADUALLY it turned to IBS.I'd get diarrhea if I got nervous..And it was liveable-with.That was 13 years ago.<br />I learned that making plans stressed me so that if I went out to dinner, there were bound to be bathroom visits-before, afterwards..I made less dinner engagements..<br />About 12 years ago, I started having bad edema&amp; heart trouble.The drugs they gave me-you guessed it-made my IBS worse.They also made the arthritis in my knees awful.I'm a potter, I had to sell my house &amp; get an apartment because my clay studio was in the basement.(Plus the bathrooms were on the 2 &amp; 3 floor..)NOT a good set up for occasional diarrhea. <br />Plus I had no income but my SS.<br />Things got worse.I had to move to a senior housing project.Worse things got, more upset gut.For some reason, the bathroom is VERY far from the bedroom here.My IBS grew worse until one day 2 months ago, I woke up and actually felt peristalisis taking place.(cant run) but made it to bathroom only to lose it when I bent over to take off panties.Only familiar w/accidents by babies and puppies, I was horrified @ the HUGE mess a liquidy stool makes.It takes LONG to clean up.Floor, wall, toilet, clothes.Crying time.Today it happened again.And yes, as others have said, it is turning me into a hermit.Not constant(yet?) but never predictable.Plus there is leakage from an old hemmorhoid, which has taken to wetting the back of my pants.So right-no whites in summer, no light-colored clothing.Leaking is mucous, but on IBS days, there is a bit of stool involved.<br />There is someone on my floor who uses adult diapers.(Trash room is how I know)A very nice woman friend has what looks like a coloscopy bag under her shirt.These things are NEVER mentioned.Which is why I'm here, telling my tale.<br />Thank you for sharing, and thank you, iffgd for this VERY helpful site.If I learn anything about living w/this, I'll surely share.<br />Joan</p>

Good day Read my testimony!!! Getting ex back after a breakup. Am Cora L. Sanchez 30 from UK, my boyfriend of a 2year just broke up with me and am 28 weeks pregnant. I have cried my self to sleep most of the nights and don’t seem to concentrate during lectures sometimes I stay awake almost all night thinking about him and start to cry all over again. Because of this I end up not having energy for my next day’s classes, my attendance has dropped and am always in uni and on time. Generally he is a very nice guy, he ended it because he said we were arguing a lot and not getting along. He is right we’ve been arguing during the pregnancy a lot. After the break up I kept ringing him and telling him I will change. I am in love with this guy and he is the best guy I have ever been with. I’m still hurt and in disbelief when he said he didn’t have any romantic feelings towards me anymore that hurt me faster than a lethal syringe. He texts me now and then mainly to check up on how am doing with the pregnancy, he is supportive with it but it’s not fair on me, him texting me as I just want to grieve the pain and not have any stress due to the pregnancy. i was really upset and i needed help, so i searched for help online and I came across a website that suggested that Dr Ahmed can help solve marital problems, restore broken relationships and so on. So I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and he told me what to do and i did it then he did a spell for me. 22 hours later, my boyfriend came to me and apologized for the wrongs he did and promise never to do it again. Ever since then, everything has returned back to normal. I and my boyfriend are living together happily again.. All thanks to Dr Ahmed. as it is a place to resolve marriage/relationship issues, do you want to be sure if your spouse is being faithful to you or Do you want your Ex to come back to you Contact.: E-mail: Ahmedutimate@gmail.com OR call/Whats-app: +2348160153829 save your crumbling home and change of grades its 100% safe.
