I know that it has been a while since I have posted to you, but a lot has happened to me since I last wrote to you. I just wanted to start off by saying that I'm sorry to hear that you are still feeling so bad. I hope that you are able to get some answers very soon. You say that you feel like you are bothering your drs. Please try not to feel that way since you have some drs that you trust. That's what they are there for. They are there to help us.

Like me, you trust your gyn very much, and since you do trust him that much then there is no need to be afraid of telling him or the pain dr anything that bothers you. Tell them whatever is in your heart that may be bothering you. That is especially important since you know that these two drs understand what is going on with you. You have a situation where you are trying to get some help. It's ok to ask for that help so that some of the burden of frustration can be taken off of you.

Just the other day I had to ask my gyn for some help b/c things with my grandmother have gotten even harder to cope with. It took me a while to be realize that there was nothing wrong with asking for the help that we need in order to deal with the problem that we have at the present time.

Also, know that I'm here for you whenever you need to chat on a personal basis. I do hope that you get to feeling better soon.
