And here we go again...

My immune system has declined since I was around 17 because of depression and ive gotten sick soooo many times since then. Not just colds but major illnesses over and over like strep throat, staph infections and the worse.... pilonidal cysts.

If you dont know what a pilonidal cyst is then ill inform you. Its a cyst that forms on your tail bone. And it hurts. Bad. No matter if you sit, stand, lay it hurts. You just feel it there. I've had it three times, one time where it became badly infected and I had to be rushed to the ER where they inserted a needle to numb it right near the infected area (soooooo painful) and then lanced it. Needless to say it was probably the worse experience of my life. I was traumatized for awhile where if I tried to talk about it I would start crying. And now I feel it coming back.

There is a surgery available for people who have repetitive cysts like me but the problem with that is that it's not a guarantee the cyst will never come back, and the recovery time varies from a few weeks to a few months.

Idk what im going to do. All I know is that this sucks.

To end on a positive note though, I found out I lost 2lbs!! Woooo!

    That absolutely sucks. Nothing worse than knowing what's wrong and not being able to do anything about it. But you found something positive to focus on and that's good! Congrats on the 2 lbs!!
