About Me: Female, 41, Edmonton, AB, member since Mar 2012
I'm a 38 year old female, just had a hysterectomy on March 15, 2013 (removed cervix,uterus,left ovary and fallopian tube) had extensive endometriosis and adenomyosis. Diagnosed with Generalized Anxiety Disorder with panic attacks, and with Major Depressive Disorder. S
[More]truggled with social anxiety in the past and, although I was not formally diagnosed with it, I show a lot of OCD traits. I am overweight and now that I've had my hysterectomy, maybe I can concentrate on losing the weight. I have scalp psoriasis that is driving me crazy right now....tried so many things, but it doesn't go away. I have irritable bowel syndrome (which flares up every now and again). I have vulvular lichen schlorosis (I don't think I spelled that right), that flares up every now and then, mostly when I'm very anxious. I'm on anti-depressants, anti-anxiety pills, anti-psychotics (actually for sleep).
