An absolute success story- please read!

Dear All,

I posted on here back in March 2017 having just got a diagnosis of vulvodynia after a few months of relentless and acute pain. I was desperate, I was hurting, I was scared I would never know life without pain there again.

I tried creams, acupuncture, numbing gels, frozen pads, baths with various internet recommended concoctions- convinced myself I had lichen sclerosus, herpes, thrush- …

MonaLisa Touch

Fri Feb 08, 2019 7:35 pm by rl2091

Hi All,

I'm wondering if anyone has any experience with the MonaLisa Touch treatment for Vulvodynia? My pain started when I went on HRT(pill) for anxiety mainly and my pain abruntly stopped when I stopped HRT. However, when I started on the HRT patch (at my dr's suggestion), the pain returned and has never left. That was 7 years ago. I found MonaLisa Touch on the internet purely by accident …

Hi All,

I’m so glad I’ve found a place where there are others who understand how I feel!

So this is my story:-

I’m 36,  and 4 months ago, whilst innocently sitting in bed reading I experienced a very sharp stabbing pain in my clitoris. It last only a few minutes and then subsided as quickly as it came on. It put it down to “one of those things”.  The following morning I woke up …

Hi everyone,

About three months ago, I started having vaginal and vulval itching. Then, about two months ago, my vulva started to feel painful and look swollen, so I went to the doctor. I was tested for herpes, chlamydia, and gonorrhea which all came back negative. I also had to do a vaginal swab test and the only thing that came back positive was yeast infection. I was prescribed hydrozole …

Hi there. I'm 25 and have been dealing with this for over a year and a half and I'm really starting to lose hope this will ever stop.

In July of 2016 I had a yeast infection. When Monistat didn't work I went to my gynecologist who prescribed Diflucan. When the itching didn't stop she retested me and found that my yeast infection was gone, but I now had a bacterial infection. After taking the …

Am learning to drive

Post  Sebby (Admin) on Sun Jun 26, 2011 7:01 pm


Hey all

I recently took up driving lessons again and am hoping I dont give up again this time!

Im such a nervous driver Shocked

I'm also quite hard on myself and should realise I am bound to make mistakes and its all part of learning

I do think I have found the right instructer, he is firm with me as well as understanding. He has a good sense of humor too which with me in the car he really needs! Laughing

Any advice welcome Smile

Re: Am learning to drive

When I learnt to drive back in 1994 I found it useful if the instructor told me why I was doing things, like I had to know why I was pressing the clutch at certain times so I knew in my head when I needed to do it, what can I say I'm a little bit odd! I also found it helpful when he pointed out that people who have already learnt to drive do silly things like stall etc and once you've passed your test you don't feel so self conscious about it and he's right, once I'd passed if I stalled I wasn't bothered!

I failed my first test because I let the nasty examiner get to me so stay as calm as you can is my advice, everyone's nervos to start with but it gets less daunting as you go along. Good luck!

Hey Sebby,

If you like the instructor it helps. I failed first time and my instructor was a right old git, but the second instructor was strict but had a sense of humour and I passed. My friend had a really dishy instructor and all she could think about was how attractive he was, she failed her test as she spent most of her time wondering what to wear for the lessons and not the highway code. Laughing Laughing

Keep at it and your confidence will grow. Its great driving with the right music on, takes all the worries away, helps me relax.

Good Luck,

Ria

Having the right instructor is so important. I didn't start learning to drive until I was in my late 20s. I was so nervous I used to get the runs before every lesson. I failed my test twice and, dopey as I am, it was only after my second failure that I realised the instructor was more interested in tryingng to get off with me. He actually said that if I passed the next time he would let me give him a kiss. That's how obvious he had to be before I got the message. All his double-entendres about the gear stick completely went over my head. I can't believe I tolerated this, but I was so nervous and he was the one in control. Anyway, I found another instructor who was brilliant and really helped build up my confidence. Unfortunately, I got the infamous dragon of an examiner and bottled my third test, but 4th time round, with the same horrible examiner, I sailed through it. Passing my test was such a liberating experience. Can't say I'm a keen driver, but it freed me up to do so many other things. Good luck Smile

The instructor who was trying to get off with me was anything but dishy - he just thought he was. I was married at the time and when I told my husband about what this guy had been saying, he couldn't believe my naivete. He just thought it was funny - perhaps he thought I was too dopey to be attracted to anyone else. Maybe I was at the time Wink Wink
