Today made me feel terrible. I always post in the Anxiety forums, but I decided that right now, this is exactly how I am feeling. I have had the feeling of just feeling my life is over, and i'll be lucky if I make it to Christmas, or my birthday, etc. I do not know why I keep hurting myself. Today I got news, that I have numerous cysts in each ovary. I searched PCOS, and I have cardiophobia, and what does it say, higher risk of heart attack, disease, etc. I am overweight, so this scares me even more. I wan't to breakdown, I feel so depressed and caught in a bubble I cannot get out of, I have been feeling like this since July and this made it 10 times worse. How do I deal with this, I feel like I am going insane. I am 18. I had an ECG done, normal, and ultrasound, and showed this. I feel lost and don't know what to do, I feel like my life is over and I am going to die any day of a heart attack or something. I know I don't deserve this.

Welcome flashinglights

I'm glad you posted. I'm very sorry for yr medical troubles..you must be sad. It is the young people here that really tug at my heartstrings.

Sometimes searching the web just makes us more anxious because we see the worst case scenario. What did the doctor say? What are the treatment options? I've know many women that had cysts removed successfully. That doesn't mean you should not be concerned.

What meds are you on? Are you seeing a therapist? I know it must feel scary right now, but expressing yourslef here is good and we welcome you. I just got up from bed for a minute but wanted to say hey, you are not alone.

Keep posting, ok?

Hi there,

Having cists on your ovaries can be a common thing. A lot of women have them. I have fibrocystic breast desease. Which all that means is I have dense tissue. So often it sounds worse than it is.

I am sure that your doc will go over with treatment options for you. You may have to have a sugery which is very safe. Like Maggie said, don't let the internet scare you. Often we read too much into things. Just listen to your doctor.

Hugs, Karen
