Hey all, I am currently a student at Louisiana State Unversity, and this semester has been the worse by far.  I was confident when it started, but my grandmother passed away within two of the semester.  I was close to her, so it was very very hard to deal with that.  Well, all got better, but then my stepfather went into the hospital last month for a lung disease he had.  He accidently overdosed on some drugs he takes because they cause memory loss.  He forgot he took them, and caused his lungs and heart to stress.  Well, the week he got out, my 18 year old sister calls and tells me she is pregnant.  In the mean time, I am dealing with my own personal problems.  I have been spotting and in pain.  I told my mom about this a while back and when I went to talk to her about seeing a doctor, she flipped out on me.  She said I was trying to make it all about me, and if I can't have kids that it isnt the end of the world.  She said that I should be more worried for my sister.  This hurt a lot, and I have not talked to my mom or my sister since.  My dad in Ohio learned about my sister, and he has called me a couple times cursing and asking when my sister and I are growing to grow up.  He said she needs to get an abortion, and I flipped out on him.  He and my mom got pregnant with me when she was eighteen, so I thought he was being hypocritical.  If I lived near any of them, I am scared were I would be.  All the stress is causing me to be snappy with my finace and break out in rage for no reason.  I am scared that this is all going to cause me to do something irrational.  Thanks for listening.  This is what I need.

Sorry to hear about your troubles. Life and death are both emotional events. The only advice I can offer is to talk to your doctor about the spotting. I don't live near my family either and am better off for it.

Hi Buuphie and welcome to HW, I am coming up on my second month and I love it here. All peeps are so caring and help with most concerns you have. If you do nothing else for yourself, please get yourself an appt. with ob/gyn. He may even be able to guide you through your stress times. Please don't procrastinate on that appt., it saves lives!!!
I have a 20yr. old in college that suffers with depression. She decided to stop her Lexapro ..and WellbutrinXL. It wasn't till she thought she wasn't going to make the grade to be able to begin Charity Nursing School, New Orleans in the fall, that we started noticing her signs of depression. On top of all that she got engaged on Vday. Her head was unfocusable enough already! LOL Well, my huuby and demanded she get to Dr. immediately, as she kept putting it off. Finally everyday she is getting back to my daughter that i know.
Saying all that, help is only an appt. away!! Best to you sweetie and let us know how things go.
God bless!

I just wanted to thank you all for being there.  I have made a doc appointment for Monday.  I got up the courage to call my mom and sis, suprisingly it has made me feel a little better.  I am, however, going to tell my doc about those mood swings.  Thanks so much again, and good luck to your daughter.  I know how she feels.

Hi Buuphie -

Welcome to the Healing Well Forum. It sounds like you are dealing with quite a lot right now. Anyone would be stressed if they were dealing with all of the things that you mentioned in your post as well as continuing their education. It also sounds like you were looking for some advice and support from your mom, which wasn't what you received. Your mom's reaction is probably an inital reaction, to her own stress level. If you haven't already I would also suggest following bluemeanies suggestion to contact your doctor, since spotting and pain are symptoms that should be evaluated further.

I would also suggest considering talking with a counselor at school, if you haven't already. When I was working on my associate's and subsequently my bachelor's I found it very helpful to talk with a counselor to help me get a better handle on all of the different things that I was dealing with.

Best of luck and feel free to keep posting here and please keep us updated - there are a bunch of wonderful, caring, and supportive people here.

Well I went to the doctor.  I was diagnosed with BV and put on medication.  He wants to do an ultrasound because I have had it for awhile.  He said because of this I could possibly have cysts, growths and/or scar tissue.  The ultrasound is about in one week.  I will keep you all updated.  Family life is getting better...school...and work too.
