Yep I agree Leon, I'm a former carer to my now ex husband, he has MS , we remain friends however. It just got to a point where providing care 24/7 -365 was too much for me with little help from his family, and having to rely on care agencies funded by Social Services. In the end I was too exhausted to carry on, we mutually agreed to separate, and he has live in agency care workers.
Moving on to last year I'd "met" my boyfriend online in Dec '06, and it was in April'07 I plucked up the courage to meet him in person. It was shortly after our relationship became sexual my gynae probs came to light, a cyst was detected on a smear test in Jan '07, but my doctor didn't seem too worried by it as it wasn't causing problems at this time. I think it's unfortunate that these gynae probs came to light shortly after we became really serious and the relationship became sexual . My boiyfriend seems to blame himself for "Breaking" me, but I think it was a case of s**t happens.
My wonderful boyfriend has travelled down from Warwickshire to be with me at hospital appointments, and look after me following a recent laparascopy and hysteroscopy, he's listened to me at 4.45am when I couldn't sleep due to stressing out over a hospital appointment, or I've been ranting on about insensitive or useless doctors I'm due back for a follow up nexy week, and the gynaecologist is reccommending a Mirena c**l , and he's read up views from other women who have used the Mirena, and he agrees with me that it would be a bad idea. I just want to get to the bottom of what's causing this pain/ prolonged bleeding, and at least manage it , so that I can get on with planning my move up to Warwickshire
