my name is michelle,i am a mother of two. i have been ill since i was born with gastrointestinal problems, i have had a lower GI when i was nine, was in the hospital as a baby becasue i was dangerously underweight and have struggled my whole life with pain. this is only a tiny portion of what i have dealt with physically and emotionally. i joined this group so i don't los hope. i have been diagnosed with irritable bowel and a peptic ulcer, which i don't think acts up much at all until recently. i recently in february had a miscarriage after trying for over year, then my husband's job starts to underpay him by hundreds of dollars, i am on disability for aniety and panic, but live my life as full as possible. i am used to pain but my ibs and acid in my stomach has caused such severe pain it is overwhelming, my bentyl is being taken so much it is ridiculous. i have gne to my dr. and they are doing tests. i am scared, deprssed and wonder if i can go on and if other experience intense pain in the abdomen from time to time, under their ribs, in their back, feel like your intestines are reaching their streching point. i have two kids i have to stay stable for and am so depressed. any comments, good and honest are welcome. plus my periods are incredibly hard on me,i get very bad pms. yet i manage to find life and happiness in anything i can.

My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
