Self introduction

After I had been to see a vulvovaginal specialist for my interesting mix of vulvar dysesthesia, vulvar vestibulitis, pelvic pelvic floor strong reviews floor syndrome, and interstitial cystitis, I had a complete meltdown. I really thought this doctor would save me from the nightmare and give me my life back. I had suffered an allergic reaction to a yeast cream and had hives all over the vulvar region as well as my upper chest. Even after the hives subsided, I had the most intense itching I had ever experienced. I had always suffered bouts of vulvar itching - even when I was as young as three years old. This itching, however, never left. My specialist prescribed prednisone, hoping to calm what seemed to be an allergic reaction that had turned into vulvar vestibulitis.

Nope. Nothing changed. I completely lost it and became an emotional conglomoration of complete panic, despair, and anger. I imagine my inner self as a big, black swirling cloud during that time.

Prior to my meltdown, I was doing pretty well emotionally because I was fresh from my trip to the specialist and full of new hope. I was sure the treatments would work, and I was feeling so much better mentally that I was able to hear my Inner Healer (see previous post) when she spoke to me. During a physical therapy appointment, my physical therapist mentioned a local woman who taught breathing and relaxation techniques. My physical therapist was treating myself and another woman with vulvodynia at the time, and she was always looking for anything that might help us. She gave me this woman's card and said, "Why not try it? We're trying to relax your pelvic floor muscles and here's a person who specializes in deep breathing and relaxation. It can't hurt!"
