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.

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.
