My boyfriend finally talked me into goin to the dr alil over a month ago. I have known for years that i have had some problems. But never wanted to talk to anyone about them. Well the problems have been getting worse. So I laid it all out on the table for the dr. Told them everything i have been keeping in. As I was doing this i started shaking, really bad. My teeth were even chattering. But I wasnt cold. I was just scared. The nurse saw this and checked my BP. I told them I am scared to do anything anymore. In fear of people and of myself messing up somehow. I feel like I have been out of the loop of things for years. Like I dont know how to act. I havent driven in over a year. I remember driving I loved it. But not now. We got in a little fender bender. Since then Im affraid to even be a passenger in the car. I feel so isolated. I told them i used to cut myself as a teen. Even about being an A student but taking c- for a paper b/c I wouldnt get up in front of the class for the oral report. And some other things I have been dealing with. They said I have many things I need help with. Im Bipolar. and might have some problems with social anxiety. No really... u think? So the first thing they want me to get help for is the depression and mood swings. I dont understand this. I think im so depressed b/c Im feeling so isolated. I think if we tackled this anxiety problem that the depression would go away! Does anyone else have this problem with dr's? All they put me on was prozac and lithium.

So my daughter, who will be 30 in a few months, says she thinks she has varicose veins, as she can't figure out what else it could be. Only in one leg, and is so bad it is hard to sleep at night. She is in excellent shape, really exercises a lot, and eats well... not at all overweight. Anyone else have any issues with this? I did find that it can go with PKD. She was reading that there are...
