About Me: Female, 26, Rugby, United Kingdom, member since Jul 2009
I'm Leanne. I'm 19 years old and I hail from Rugby. I have suffered with aggressive and borderline cancer ovarian cysts from the age of 16 and have suffered from depression since around 17. I have also recently begun to have problems with sleeping during the night. I ha
[More]d my first surgery at 16 in April 2006 and my second surgery in April 2007. I now have only a third of my left ovary and my right one was completely removed during the 2006 surgery. I have been left with very large scars across my stomach that have completely changed my life. I went from being a slim, sociable, confident, very active teenager to being overweight with low self esteem, rarely leaving my house, being old-before-my-time and unable to walk to the shop without aid. I have a very supportive partner who I love dearly but I hate being so dependant on him. I joined this site when a friend sat me down and told me to stop letting my physical and mental condition control my life and if I needed to talk to anyone the best way to do it would be through the internet and with people with the same kind of problems. So here I am. Hoping and praying that this'll work so I can lead a normal life again.
Just a quick note to say hi! sorry I have not been in contact for a while, but is just goes to show what can happen from a simple test on 1/07/10 went to hospital for an ECG test, by 4:30 pm I was admitted and within 24 hrs diagnosed as needing a coronary by-pass operation, I was not allowed out until the operation was done. as a result I remaind there until 24/07/10 when 5 days after the surgery I was allowed home to recuperate. This has been a serious wake up call for me and I am now trying to sort out various issues as they impact on my life. I hope you are OK and have had some nice breaks away etc. Speak soon Paul
Sorry I did not contact you before Xmas, I hope you had a good one and that Santa brought you at least some of the things you asked for. I hope 2010 will be a good year for you, keep on smiling and keep in touch
