Boo, I feel so badly that you are feeling so badly. I didn't think you meant 'it is all in your head'. Sometimes we just need ppl to realize what is really going on in our lives, our bodies, and they just seem to blow us off like they know it all - and they don't have a clue. Some drs are so good, and some drs, you just want to scream.
I will keep you in my prayers (if you don't mind). I am also sending you my best wishes for real answers and help from your drs.
God bless. Alice.
Boo, you sound sooo much better today. I am so glad. How wonderful that the woman came into your work today. A local support group and info on some 'good' drs, EXCELLLENT!! Sometimes our 'angels' don't have visible wings.
I wish they had a support group around here, there was supposed to be one at our local hospital. I had called the # that I saw in our newspaper, the lady at the hospital never heard of it. She checked all their listings, nothing. I looked into this a couple of yrs ago, that was when we just got our computer. I finally tried to find something on the internet. Luckily, I found this site. What a blessing!
I hope this is a new beginning for you.
God bless. Alice.
Boo, I'm really happy that you found a support group and they can steer you to a doctor that believes in fibro! That's half the battle!
I'm sorry I forgot you lived in Ireland. I gave you a U.S. site... But you are doing just fine without it, now!
Forget the Psych stuff for now. You don't need to re-live your past. One day I wrote it down, went to the church and gave away my past. I don't need the extra baggage. You don't either esp. if your trying to get pregnant. Cysts are normal. It's not a creation of your mind. It's just a cysts that can be taken out.
If it's true that you can't conceive look into getting a surrogate, adoption, legal guardianship, foster children. There are so many children out there waiting for homes. Maybe you can save one of them and give them a better life.
Since your counselor says "it's just pent up anger from a violent childhood that has me the way i am", then tell her how do you get rid of it? Remember a counselor is just another human being. They don't know everything.
Now this counselor has you worried about your childhood. I would tell that counselor to back off and change the tune to more positive things in counseling. OR get another counselor, or stop going, or really get rid of your past. Let it go. What you have is better now. Doesn't matter. The past is gone. Live today each day.
Listen to that song "I'm walking on sunshine."
I'm young with many disorders and worry about when it comes my time to think about having children. My brother told me maybe it's just not for me. My parents told me don't worry since my brother has kids. The Dr's. tell me I would have to prepare a yr in advance. My husband is aging. I love to work. I can't see where children could fit in our life. My husband has not asked for kids yet. He just wants me to get better. I have heard people tell me I would be a great Mom.
For people out there I just think kids are a blessing. I read even in Bibilical times women were barren. It's not something new. It's a gift. A man can't bring a human into the world only us women. We are really special I believe for having the ability as women to have kids. I don't even know if I could adopt with my illnesses. I wonder. I would like to if I could not have my own. Look into it (adopt) if you can't have a child. I have a mansion, cars, a profession, and a family. I would give it all up to have a child. I know you probably feel the same way. I'm really praying for you that whatever happens is best. Your husband is so supportive. Your so lucky to have a good husband.
