Thankfully, I had a "visitor" today, unfortunately in the middle of a stressful final exam, but no embarrassments. :-\ Right before, I was just crazy emotional and stressed out and irritable. When the visitor comes, I'm much more relaxed and so are my emotions. I'm not really considering therapy at this point right now, because of previous bad experience, having people jot down what's in your head on a lifetime record, and I just found out the outpatient doctor that I thought was a psychiatrist and was referred to by another hospital is in Internal Medicine. He can't made any adjustments to what the previous psychiatrist did, though he can add things on, but I mean does he understand!? I wouldn't want to talk to someone not certified as a psychiatrist about depression. I don't talk to him about PCOS. That's when I go to my ob/gyn. I just kinda felt like I was tricked.

Hi there... Its been quite sometime since I have posted and I do not believe I ever posted in this room but, Im telling u, after the night Im having, I think I was meant to stumble onto this. I have been diag with PCOS since 8/06 I went for some testing, then I was given i script for Clomid and then boom, i lost my insurance. Anyhow, my periods have been somewhat regular since the last time I was put back on B C to get rid of the cysts on the ovaries. Well, so far, I did take 5 days of the clomid already even though I knew darn well I couldnt follow up with the drs. I will have insurance on June 1st , well, for the most part, I have tried not to think about the pregnancy thing and then it happened, I got a call tonite from my sis in law, she has 5 kids, well 3 with my brother and my brother had 2 from his marriage, well, I was told that not one but two of my sisters are both pregnant again. I was happy for them but secretly, Im crushed.. Its getting too much for me. I went to try to talk to my boyfriend about my feelings and although hes usually understanding, he was so not interested. I didnt want to show him how crushed I was. I ran out to the kitchen , made marshmellow treats, ate them all and now Im not only sick but mad at myself.
I have been in therapy on and off over 1/2 my life and I love my therapist, shes really nice, I have not been able to see her since late Jan due to the cancellation of my insurance and let me tell u, I could really use it. Im not on the meds anymore, I feel like I have to learn to deal with my feelings on my own, I hated the way I felt when I came off the paxil since I was attempting a pregnancy and did not want to risk anything.
I think therapy can be a wonderful expirence but, you really have to be willing to open up.
I sure could use it now, I feel like a failure and cursed.
Sorry if I bummed u all out.
Take care
Kelly C

I do not go to therapy for PCOS. I think it would depend on what you are looking for. If you WANT a support sytem, I would actually think this page and things like that could be more help than a therapist who may have no knowledge of PCOS. If you just want someone to talk to, to process how you are feeling, to help you deal w/ pain, loneliness, etc; therapy could be VERY helpful. I also think confidentiallity is kept for this sort of thing. Also for seeing a pastor for couselling. I wouldn't let the records aspect deter you.

I sort of agree with you,but if you need therapy and your insurance is willing to pay for it and you can't otherwise afford it then go anyhow and don't worry about the medical file! The most important thing is that if you need help you get it!

DH goes to therapy and his therapist asked that I be there for his sessions since this seems to help DH. I am proud that DH was smart enough to not only realize that he needed the help but actually brave enough to go get it! His therapist covers the stuff that DH is dealing with on an individual level as well as stuff that DH is dealing with that involves me and our families. I think that it is a great thing!

I do have to say that if you don't like the first one you go to then find another one! Don't let one bad experience put you off! Get the help you need.

BELIEVE in the POWER of your DREAMS!

I have been involved with therapy in the past with my family. I am not currently in any therapy, but I'm never against going as I am a counselor :o) If you are using insurance to pay for therapy then it does go in your medical file. Also insurance company can request your file. If I were to go into therapy I would ask the terapist about your dx. some therapist's, like me, are very conservative on dx. because the DX. does stick with you. I think that self-pay is the way to go. Many counselors will give a cash discount.

I am in treatment now. I do be depressed a lot because of it and I too am the only one in my family going through this. The biggest thing is learning as much as you can about it and what you can do to help the situation. It not cureable just treatable as they say, but by GOD stipes I am healed. IF you need someone to talk to about it I am here.

I have not been to therapy, I guess because I didn't want children anyway, so the fact that it might be harder to conceive is not a big deal to me.

My family didn't pay much attention either, thought it was a simple woman's thing that made me gain weight. Then my mother went to a lecture by my endocrinologist and he scared her half to death. She is VERY supportive now, to the point of telling me I can't eat certain things, like hot dogs, and so forth. Hmm, so there was a slight downside if you like to manage your own diet!

Every day you may make progress. Every step may be fruitful. Yet there will stretch out before you an ever-lengthening, ever-ascending, ever-improving path. You know you will never get to the end of the journey. But this, so far from discouraging, only adds to the joy and glory of the climb.

Since my support system around me isn't as great as I need it to be, I was considering therapy. Does anybody else do therapy for PCOS? At first I avoided it because once something goes into your medical file, it stays there, and I don't want my medical file to be an inch thick of information on me. I recently got my medical records from my first hospital stay and although most of the info I remember telling them, you start wondering who is going to see this and how are these things going to impact your future.

As far as family support, my fam is mostly male and they don't get it whatsoever and my mom just doesn't really comprehend it. I feel like if my and her ovaries were in a race, mines would be far ahead of hers. I don't have a prehistory of this, so I'm the only one in my family with this. My brother has actually recommended that I talk to my aunt whose an RN, but as far as I know its suppose to stay within the family.

So has anyone considered or been to therapy? And what has your experience been?
