So I'm new to this forum but I wanted to post. I'm heading in for my 2 of 3 lumbar epidural injections. I CAN'T wait until they are over. This is my 3rd series and I'm only 25. This will be my last series for a while. I need to find some other waits that work

Wow. I do understand what you are saying and I wish I could get to a point where I do not need pain killers anymore. In fact I'm working on it. I don't understand how you cna be so judgemental about my pain. Are you not a healthcare provider? Did you loose your empathy? You can't just put every type of patient into a pile and deal with th...

As far as the addiction goes, I want to tell you all a story about Christina. When Christina was 14 she tried drugs, alcohol, & sex for the first time. She stopped all that when her parents sent her to a different school. The drugs and alcohol came back later in high school and got really bad after moving to a different state. Christina went to recove...
I was in NA/AA for a while. It served a purpose in my life for a certain time but there came a point where I was feeling like life outside of NA was leaving me behind. I also could not stant the "brain-washing" it gave me. I do want to say that NA saved my life for sure and is a great program for anyone seeking recovery. There just came a time i...

You definitely should go see a doc. Those feelings are not normal and it seems that you are not able to function as a result.

I also have an undiagnosed pain condition in my right lower abdomen that I have been dealing with for around 5 years now. I&#x...

There have been tumes for me when I have started bleeding after sex with a guy with a larger penis. I don't know why this happens but it does for me. Once your hymen breaks, it's done. It doesn't break more than once. Are you using lubrication? If your vaginal walls are not moist enough, they can get rough and I suppose even bleed. Hope...

My psychiatrist prescribed me Celexa a few weeks ago. So far, for me, it has been great. My libido is not affected and I am starting to feel better after 13 days. Be careful taking all of these at once. Zoloft is a good one and begins working quickly. Is a MD prescribing these meds? Wellbutrin only worked for me when I tried to quit smoking like 7 years...

I'm sending you an internet hug and shoulder to cry on right now. I understand that things are tough, and I understand your feelings. I don't like side effects of meds either. After trying so many different anti-depressants, I found that Celexa works wonders for me; that combined with sleeping medications so I can get a good night sleep every nig...
