About Me: Female, 26, Texarkana, AR, member since Nov 2010
Mom with three small kids (4, 2 1/2, and 1) and my husband works a ton trying to support us through a rough time right now. Found out about a year ago that there is a spot on my brain and they can't tell if it is a tumor or Multiple Sclerosis. I was sexually abused as a
[More] child (from age 7 to 14) by my father. I have attempted suicide once and think about it quite often right now! Just a rough time that I can't see myself making it through right now!
I felt so alone until I read your messages. I'm 25 and exact same scenario almost. Doctors are scary, they are inconsistent and unreliable in being thorough or proactive. I have been going through the motions since age 7 from chronic headaches and pain and the huge 5cm lump behind my ear...Childhood migraine, odd formed skull, head injury???, forceps at birth, hypochondriac. To date I have 8 neurosurgeons and countless other vague professionals, countless CT and MRI and die scans at my demand not request of course, if I listened to them I would be on meds for every mental illness there is and dead in a few years. You know your body they know theories, demand the tests over and over again until it sinks in for them or you find a good specialist.
