How about a full physical and second opinion? Is that possible?
I checked my health last year, and there was nothing wrong with me. I had no ovary, kidney, stomach and illnesses. I don't think the problems had to do with physical causes.

How do you feel about advocating for yourself and taking charge of your mental health care? This would involve being proactive as opposed to waiting. Find out for yourself what options exist. Maybe look for a relevant support group.

You have taken the first and hardest step already - asking for help.vWe are all proud of you for that. Now to carry that on. Great luck.
I felt somewhat relieved when she told me that. My parents are planning to take me if problems occur again.

She did mention that I might be suffering from depression spells. She told me that therapy might help me be more confident and might help me be more assertive. She didn't tell a specific medication, but mentioned that it can help. She didn't recommend me any doctor ( due to the fact I don't live in the same area as her.)

Like an ultrasound?


To add with edit...

I mean, do tell if there's some new medical breakthough in ovary monitoring. If there is....I want to be first in line or calling up my doctor between yearly exams to request this...

Good for you for seeking help! Best to approach these things before they get out of hand. Just know that you are accepted here and we love hearing about your progress!

Best of luck to you, my friend.

Do you hear voices only during your depressive spells, or also when you mood is level?
