I was born with Congenital Hip Dysplasia but they didn't find it until I was 16 months old and I had to be in a body cast for a year and one leg is shorter than the other because of when they found it.I have had Asthma with Chronic Bronchitis for 10 years and suffered from Depression for 8 years.I have had Endometriosis for 3 years and I have had arthritis in my left knee for a year but I had surgery on it in 2002 and I've been having problems with it since 2001.

I was diagnosed with Lupus in 1997, when I was 25. Then I was diagnosed with Graves Disease in 2001, spondyloarthropathy in 2003, Sjogrens Syndrome in 2006 and Bipolar Disorder/OCD in 2007. I've also suffered with Anorexia/bulimia since I was about 15. I'm quite the mess.

I was born with a congenital heart condition,so since birth. I developed severe scoliosis around the age of 6 years old. So I would say all my life.

Can I ask u a few Q about that disorder? I think i might have that as well. MY dr said i have anxiety disorder.

Im wondering if excessive worrying is part of the symptoms for you.. not normal wrries... i mean EXCESSIVE. Dwelling, thinkiing the worst about everything.

Also do u get any kinda chest discomfort, pains, and shortness of breath with your anxiety, and sometimes for no reason at all.

Do you take medication while you are pregnant?

I wear hearing aids so if I'm up during the day - I had my daughter (when she was a baby) in my sights and within my hearing range - during the nights I use SonicAlert baby monitor that'll flash when she's crying and I still use it to this day to help us wake up when my daughter is up in the ams. My doctor couldn't find anything genetic to why I'm deaf and my family as well.. but there's a new finding and I'm gonna be finding out if I can be tested for that as well as my daughter. If my daughter has that in her gene - more than likely she'll be late deafened later in life..

I have suffered from Migranes since I was 9. I would pass out and puke from them. They faded off after I had my car wreck in 2002 when I was 15.

I have been in a wheel chair since then.

I have suffered from depression and "Negative DayDreams" since I was 11. Negative Daydreams are when I have these "visions" of something bad happening. We can be driving down the road and pass a semi and I'll have a vision of the semi hitting us. Or my son can be riding his bike and I'll have a vision that he falls off and something pokes through him. They almost always end in death. No therapist have been able to figure out why I have them or why they are all so vivid and fatal. I have to live with it and it gets very depressing. They basically bring on anxiety without me being panicky about things. I am not paranoid and know they are fake..but the thoughts are morbid. It's like going to a funeral every day.

My migranes have returned since my daughter was about 6 months old. They are worse than ever and I have recently been placed on a preventative med that I have to take every day. I get migranes on average 2-3 times a week. they are nasuating and immobilze me. I can't do anything when I have them

I too have severe headaches. I have a condition called Pseudotumor Cerebri. You will find a little more on my condition posted on my intro. I just wanted to welcome you to the board. My name it Patty. I hope to get this board a little more active. I also have migranes as well, so I know what you are dealing with. I hope to get to know you!
