      God will not put you on a burden you can't handle the more hurt the stronger we become and become closer to God. My sister use to say what don't kill you will make you stronger!

      I lost my son August 2007 6 weeks later I lost my brother in 2008 I lost my mother and sister-inlaw. And now I have IC It has been extremely hard since 2007. But I know that God will take care of us and I pray to be stronger everyday. This forum has given me strength and when I here about others with even worse situations than mine, I do not pity myself I try to help others on this forum. God bless each and every one of us.

      I hope no one takes offence or misunderstands me.
      I will pray for you.

      Also I meant to mention 2009 nervous break down going through the change and ajared my foot so bad took 7 months to heal, had to have rectocele repair recently and now i have bones spur in neck with athritis and nerve damage in both elbows will have to have surgery within a month or two.

      But i have so much to be thankful for like family, friends, being able to go to church is a blessing and theres more but it would take to long to list.

          Sue, so sorry,

          You can get throught this.

          My oldest brother dropped dead at age 32 from massive heart attack. My parents were so distraught I had to make the funeral arrangements. I was 24 years old. 4 years later my beautiful 2nd oldest brother was killed by a car while jogging at age 36. Once again I had to handle thngs.

          My mom was diagnosed with oat cell lung cancer at age 62 and I took care of her at home with hospice. Right after she died, my dad was diagnosed with stage 4 prostate cancer. I took care of him for many years, until he was in final stages, and we had to bring hospice in. Sigh...thought I had a break until my mother in law had recurrence of non-hodgkins lymphoma and her own daughter could not care for her. So took her in under hospice, and took care of her. I just kept telling myself "I can do this ONE MORE TIME."

          Now my husband Bob has this horrible IC, along with many, many other health issues (he just turned 55), and I think again, I can do this ONE MORE TIME. Some of us are issued more than we think we can handle, but we can do it. It is amazing what strength we can muster up from within.

          Hang in there, so sorry for your problems, and yes, it seems like that they all attack you at once. You can get through it. Hang in there. Jill, wife of Bob
