Sigh...not sure where to start. I think I'm doing better. But man, I have my moments where I feel so depressed and worthless. It really sucks. I'm taking my meds and doing everything that my doctors are telling me to. But I would really like to feel like a human being instead of a part of the Walking Dead. (Yes, I love that show) And on top of everything else, I have to go in for my annual exam tomorrow and get tested for cervical cancer. I was diagnosed with having pre-cancerous cells ten days before my wedding. So now I have to go every year. Ok, enough bitching. Thank you to whoever read this.

It seems like many woman's health issues find a place on this board when others by WebMD might offer not sympathy but information. Cervical cancer is genetic among other causes. Pre-cancerous cells signals doctors to test often. As with other conditions, catching any problem early is important to treatment. You are lucky to have a vigilant team who is watching out for you.

I've had cervical cancer and I must say that catching it early, early treatment and vigilant doctors are the best defense!
When they found mine I was pregnant and so had to forgo treatment until after my child was born, but it also meant I had to see 3 doctors the entire time instead of one for close monitoring and the check ups, well every 6 months for 5 years until they considered me clear, actually I'd say with my doctors it was more like 7 or 8 years, and now I can just go every year again like a normal person...or maybe not because I recently read somewhere that it's normal for woman to go 1-3 years between exams, but I still am recommended to go every year. And it seems like a real PITA but it sure does beat the alternative, ya know?

Hope everything turns out ok, BIG HUGS
