  • Haven't seen this thread in awhile, so I thought I would start a new one. Feel free to share your worries, problems, medical issues, heartaches, psychoses, etc.

    I have a couple of major issues going on. First, my doctor is switching around my depression meds because I have been so down for months. He added Prozac which worked amazingly well, except killed the sex drive. So now he has switched me to Lexapro last week. I am now feeling down and still no sex drive. This really sucks. I also take Wellbutrin as part of this mood cocktail.

    The other big thing is this Friday (yes, Friday the 13th) I am scheduled to go for my surgery... a laparoscopy to repair my fallopian tubes. I am feeling a lot of anxiety about it, mostly afraid that it isn't going to work. After this we are back to trying to conceive, which I'm really not looking forward to again because of all the trauma that will probably go with it. We tried for a year and it became this horrible emotional roller coaster. So prayers and good vibes will be greatly appreciated. Thanks everyone.
  • Oh Sojo... what a messy time you're having. I'm so sorry, sweetie.
    My DD and her psychologist think of Friday the 13th as a GOOD day! Be positive!
    Can you do some yoga meditation or something to help you relax and let go?

    love, hugs and prayers...

    Oh, and a few quotes.

    "The ordinary acts we practice every day at home are of more importance to the soul than their simplicity might suggest."

    "For a long time it had seemed to me that life was about to begin.....
    But there was always some obstacle in the way, something to be gotten through first, some unfinished business, time still to be served, a debt to be paid.Then life would begin. At last it dawned on me that these obstacles were my life."

  • Lots of good thoughts and hugs for you Sojo.

  • Oh, Sojo. I will be thinking of you.
    Back in the "olden" days, they blew the tubes to see if they were closed and there was no fix for blocked ones. I am sure the procedure will be successful.
    Take care of yourself before and after.
  • Sojo,
    Best wishes to you and your hubby. I will be praying for you. Take care.
    P.S. Thanks for brining back this thread! Trying to make a DR. appoiuntment for today, my dayoff.

  • I'll be thinking of you Friday, and we are ALL sending you lots of hugs, good vibes and prayers sweetie!!
  • And Virginia... good for you getting a doctors appointment! Don't put it off... you're VERY important to a lot of people. Including us!!
  • Sojo, you have my prayers too - I'm thinking of you and I wish you all the best for Friday...Ellis, we think of Friday the 13th as a good lucky day here, too, as there are so many birthdays in my family on the 13th -

  • I need good thoughts for a friend. A family that has a lot of things bad happen in the last year, now gets even more. My friend's husband is not doing well. He is now having problems with his vision, after heart problems.
  • Prayers and good thoughts for your friend & her family, Squeaker...

  • You got it, Sojo...good vibes your way. : A lot of women get pregnant after the lap...clears whatever is in there out of the way. It's all over with now, hope it went well! You should be relaxing with your feet up for a few days.

    Squeak, your poor friends! When it rains, it pours....and think a lot of us could do with a little sunshine these days.
  • Prayers for your friend and her husband/family, Squeak. And hugs for you.

    Sojo, how are you? Come and let us know how things went when you can.
    love, prayers and hugs...
  • Thank you very much Lindian, Wildfire & Ellis! I really appreciate it.

    Sojo - I hope things went well for you today.
  • Squeak, I'm so sorry about your friend and her family. One of these days I'll read "When Bad Things Happen To Good People" and maybe understand something about the Grand Scheme of Life. In the meantime I'm sure you will give her the support she needs. Prayers floating heavenward from here.
