Sometimes things are sucky and it's okay to say so. And sometimes people unintentionally tease in a way that hurts because they don't know what a sensitive nerve they are hitting. I HATE when people ask me if I'm 90 years old and my all time favorite "Man you get sick a lot! You should take a multivitamin." Yeah, bite me. You should see the vitamins, minerals, supplements, and other meds lined up on the counter. Duh-huh, yes I take vitamins. And then there are opinions and judgements about that--"You're too young to be taking all that stuff" and blah blah blah. I think it's so irritating because it's true and it hurts. I am too young and I do get sick a lot. When I think back to life before I got sick, I realize what I have lost. I grieve that loss. I wish people would be more sensitive and supportive and less judgemental. I have always gotten every cold that goes around but last year I got mono and my immune system was depressed like never before and I kept catching virus after virus after virus. When people commented on it, they sounded accusatory like it was my fault. I even said to someone once, "Yeah you're right. I really should wash my hands before I pick my nose." Anyway, I hear your frustration. It is extremely frustrating. I'm glad you're finding some relief with the Lyrica. What did your doctor say about trying to concieve while on it? I'm going to ask a dumb question but I assume your thyroid was checked? Just checking since that is one of the big reasons for difficulty concieving. Hang in there and keep positive as much as you can. I don't know how long you were sick before you were diagnosed but three months is not all that long. This disease is a bit like a rollercoaster with its ups and downs. There are good days and bad days and different treatments that work wonders for some and adversely affect others. It is very individualized and a lot of the figuring out of things will be up to you because you know your symptoms best. Look forward to the good days and treasure every day. You are now on the road to a healthier you.
