Hello Cat, You are definitely not alone I have fibroids, ovatian cyts, periods that last 14-17 days, hypothyroidism, menieries disease, and depression. I still manage to teach first grade and raise three children with the help of my wonderful husband who some how seems to understand. I just hope nothing else is add to my list on ailments I don't know how much this family can take. Some days are quite hard especially when the menieres hits and I throw up for days and can't eat. I must lay flat and not move, thats hard when it is that time of the month. Any way without more gory details I guess all we can do is keep up as best we can and don't forget to thank those who help us.
