Ok... I surrender!!!!!!!!!!  I can deal with the crohns!  The prolapse and all it entails is hard enough but now... to have breast cancer... how much can one person take????  
Today was horrible... the Cd was acting up  ( wonder why) which means multiple accidents due to the prolpase and on top of it... I was just dx. with breat cancer!  my plate is FULL!!!!!!!!!  Wonder why I feel lousy!!
i was just a about to ask my GI to send me  to someone to actually  help with the prolapse. but not  now..  i  may have to have major surgery for the breast cancer...
Cancer scares me.!  I can tell people I have crohns.., and all the other stuff with it but  the word cancer...  wow.. that is a new level!
just need to rant..
keep me in your prayers...

I am very sorry. I have not posted here in almost four years since I was dx with crohns and then 2 months later with breast cancer. You are stronger then you think. While difficult you can do this. Take it one day at a time. Will help if I can. Will say a prayer for you. 

my best to you, donna

prof I am SO SORRY to hear you are going through so much. I agree, cancer is a scary word. And with everything else your body is going through it must just be hell right now. I am here if you need to talk, feel free to email me! My mother is a breast cancer survivor among other things and has been living a "normal" life and in remission for 9 years now. You seem like a very strong woman and this will be something else you survive and become even stronger. We are all here to listen and support you so feel free to vent or rant and let it out. It is a lot to be dealing with and you don't have to go through it alone!
I will be praying for you, ((((((((HUGS))))))))))
