Another Anniversary

My whohaa has been screaming at me for 2 years now! It seems like it has been a lifetime, but also seems to have gone by so fast.  I have learned so much about myself while on this 2 year roller coaster. I have also met some really amazing women. I hate that this chronic condition has impacted my life so much, but I am trying to stay positive.  I am trying to live and enjoy a normal life despite the pain I suffer from. I can't tell you how happy I am to have reached that point.  There was a time when I thought my life was over and being happy was completely impossible!! It is truly amazing to look back and see how far I have come.

Rock in Labia??

So, I was in the shower yesterday, and while I was rinsing off, I noticed a little bump on my inner labia. It was very small and I thought that I might be seeing things, so I felt it very lightly.  Sure enough, it was a bump!! It feels like there is a tiny rock inside the skin right along the rim. It only hurts if I apply pressure. It is not a strange color or anything.  It looks completely normal other than the skin is raised. Has anyone else ever experienced anything like this??

Thank you:)

WOW!! Where did December go?!?!? I can't believe that it is already January! Time flies when you are having fun, and when you are NOT!!

I have been in a lot of pain for the last month:(  It is very hard to stay positive when the pain is so intense that my mind can't focus on anything else. It also doesn't help that it has been gloomy and below freezing for weeks:( With that said, I just wanted to say THANK YOU to all of the brave vagina pain sufferers out there who share their stories!! I have been more educated by people sharing what they have learned during their journeys with vagina pain than from any doctor! I can't thank you all enough. You all give me hope when I feel like I have very little left, and it really helps to know that there are people out there that truly understand.

How the HELL am I supposed to know?!?!?!

OK, so I am ALWAYS paranoid about getting some kind of vaginal infection, and the idea of any additional vagina problem gives me severe anxiety!! I always have burning and sometimes itching, so I worry that I would not notice a difference if I did get an infection since I live with the same symptoms EVERYDAY! So, with that said, let me explain my situation right now......I have been VERY sick for over two weeks, and I knew that I should go see a doctor, but I could not make myself go because I knew that he was going to give me an antibiotic!! And of course, we all know what can follow an antibiotic......a damn vaginal infection!! Well, I tried to convince myself for two weeks that my body could fight off whatever it was that I had all on its own if I just gave it enough time. Then, after two long miserable weeks, I finally decided to face reality and went to the doctor.  He said that I have strep, a sinus infection, an ear infection, and bronchitis. Surprise surprise....guess what he gave me....yup...a damn antibiotic!!  I swear I started to feel extra burning as soon as he handed me the paper with the Rx on it!! I told him how worried I was about getting a yeast infection and asked him to also give me an Rx for Diflucan.  He did, so you would think that I would be fine and not all paranoid about it. After all, if I did get an infection, all I have to do is take the pill.  Sounds pretty simple and the problem will be solved.....well.....my brain does NOT agree with that logic:( My anxiety is almost unbearable!!!
