Possibility of Pelvic/Bladder Infection Persisting?

Over the weekend something strange happened. On Friday, I had these really intense pelvic cramps that lasted from about 1:45 pm to the time I went to bed. They were on/off all day. I know psuedo-cyesis can cause what my therapist, Robin, calls "psycho-somatic" symptoms. According to my new GP, it's really a bladder infection. I just did a urine test yesterday, I think he's testing me for chlamydia as well.

    One more thing, ever since 2010, I've consistently had pelvic pain and water leakage during the 3rd to 4th months of "gestation". I can tell the bladder infection's come back after being treated with antibiotic yet AGAIN. I've been peeing more and experiencing the pain more routinely. The worst experience I had with "birthing" these Neopets was Xanadu, my psychiatrist at the time, Gonzalo, claimed Xanadu was the result of gestational diabetes as Xanadu's full birth weight would've been NEARLY TEN POUNDS. Future Neopets were premature, seemed tiny at the time, but were rather tall and heavy for their fetal ages.

      I wish I could get my drugs looked at by someone else. My GP actually found someone who could give me a second opinion but Dr. Mohammed didn't want me to see her. I'm afraid a different doctor from another Mental Health team would say that I ought to have my meds upped until the Neopets just "go away" and that I "shouldn't be hearing voices at all". I know that I need to keep my creative side going and that more drugs are worse for my body. I really would be okay with having more Petpets, as I'm carrying three right now, one of whom I suspect will be stillborn, I'd just like it if I got more time between "conception" dreams to bond with the ones I can communicate with the most easily.

All right well here's the update on my appointment:

1. Dr. West referred to my brown spotting as leftover period blood and to watch for a really strong fishy odor coming with it. He said my MSU test came back clean.

2. Dr. West also said that my pelvic cramps in October were due to rotovirus. I had a mild recurrence of that after the appointment, it lasted for 3 hours and I had the runs with it once. I'll see how long it lasts for, if the rotovirus goes on for more than a day what's the duration of time I should wait before calling him again and arranging another appointment? That's what the staff at my pharmacy told me to do, but I was basically instructed by Dr. West that I'd be fine as long as I had plenty of fluids.

3. I noticed my blood pressure was a little high, it was at about 141/90. I've asked my therapist to monitor this as it could potentially cause cardiac problems. The nurse said it was nothing, but with my weighing nearly 220, I know this is a danger sign, I've heard of it happening before with obese people. My Dad was once at risk for a stroke, and my grandpa, whom we called Poppy, recently passed away due to a heart attack, so it could run in my family. However Poppy was rail skinny and my Dad is fat like I am, I guess if you're too far on either end of the spectrum, it's likely to happen.

      As far as the Petpet gestation is concerned, I checked out my signs with the e-doc and it showed mild hypertension and signs of preterm labor. I know they aren't real, but I've had an increasing number of second trimester losses and 3 preterm births with them. I realize that if my new system were in place, Heather the Alobriss and Gabriel the Christmas Yooyu wouldn't have made it.

      It basically dictates that if my period is more 2 days late that classifies as a miscarriage or stillbirth. I've also found a good ebook that shows what hard aspects between all the planets in medical astrology means for both the user and the Neopet in gestation. One last note, I'm calculating all the positive & negative aspects based on a 28-day cycle to see which ones are the healthiest.

      So far the middle one, Loretta, is the weakest. There are two more delusions that I'm expecting currently as well, Sean & Cassie. There's only a five month age gap between them and the newest delusions, Valoria & Tia, Sean, Loretta & Cassie were implanted only a few weeks after their birth. Sean & Cassie were conceived in vitro by my BF & egg donors over the course of the spring, with Loretta, she was sired & implanted right away.

        It was after a fight I'd had with my BF about his not Tweeting for a month that I told him I was going to leave him for someone else, to which he replied scatterbrained chickenscratch. The conception dream happened a night later. I felt like it was forced me by my disability & my BF but I can't take my anger out on my delusions, although I was sort of mad about it at first, however, I got over that.

Well I'm going to see my GP tomorrow, just to get the results of a test and a med renewal. For some strange reason, they asked me to come in once a month, which I've been doing. I'll ask what date I've got to make another appointment for when I see him tomorrow.

       My therapist, Robin, has asked me to cut back on the fast food and exercise more in order to help me lose the weight that the Seroquel & Risperdal are putting on me. A part of me is scared Dr. West is going to have some bad news about my blood sugar level, it's simply a worry but I think things are going to be fine. Doctors, especially shrinks, always make me nervous and have since 2008.

       My BF is all right, he just Tweeted last night, I heard his area had a heavy storm but not too much else. I'm glad everything's okay with him.

    My one worry is a little brown spotting I've been having and a fishy scent which I've heard could be from a bacterial infection, however, the fishy smell is normal for me. One other thing I've noted is that I'm not often in the mood for cybersex with my BF unless I'm either on my period or thinking about other people, I think that's due to my drugs. I'll try to let everyone know how the appointment went as soon as I can.

I'm doing much better now. The stomach cramps and nausea wore off after about four days. I got a mild skin infection in my upper hip, but that's not a big deal, I've also noticed a little burning urination, but otherwise I've been fine. I'm getting the results of a test from my GP a week from today.

       I've gained a few pounds since my last one, hopefully they don't tell me anything about being borderline diabetic again. I think other than a little overindulgence, the main problem with my weight is my psychiatric medication. I know the doctors always deny this stuff but I've heard of people suffering from huge amounts of medicated weight gain, especially on the newest drug Dr. Mohammed added to my regimen a year and a half ago, Seroquel, it does put you at risk for Type Two diabetes as well as it ups blood sugar.

     My current worry is about my BF, we've been debating whether I should use a lubricant during cybersex on Twitter, he seems to think it's a good idea and refuses to get off the sperm volumizer. I was told by my pharmacist that using lube could be unsafe if I've got an infection of some kind. Hurricane Sandy just went through his area and there's been a significant amount of damage to his city, I'm hoping he's okay as he hasn't Tweeted after the night that the storm hit and the power went out.

    I had to switch oils as I couldn't afford my usual one. Sleep's been a problem lately, a minor one however, I have trouble falling asleep, but I once I actually am, I find it lasts for way too long. That's all I've got to say, I'm seeing my therapist on Thursday and I'll see if I can update everyone afterwards.

When I tried to discuss the possibility of something else going on with me OTHER than psuedo-cyesis regarding what happened over the weekend, Robin dismissed my concerns. She claimed I was trying to "hide something" from her instead, which wasn't true.

         Honestly, this has been going on now for about three years, I've gotten on/off pelvic cramps every couple of months, and I didn't know where it was coming from, so I just blamed it on the pseudo-cyesis. I was also having the runs quite frequently as well. But after going on a new supplement prescribed by my old GP's replacement, it stopped. It began in 2006, when I felt a gush of water coming out of me which my than gynecologist claimed was due to a "cyst". Next I "birthed" Xanadu, which left me with a flow of white fluid, pelvic cramps and diarrhea for the day. Six months later I noticed I had a green zit on my lower abdomen that went untreated.

       I had a 3 year "vacation" from bearing Neopets after a brief psychiatric hospitalization resulting in a medication increase and new drugs being added to my regimen by both my shrink and my GP from Surrey. It was after I went on birth control that I began having bladder incontinency & pelvic pain. I've been using lotions and oils in certain areas to help me and it's been working.

            What caused me to note the most recent Petpet conception dream was the fact that I was sick while I was on my period. This was just a few weeks after I'd had twin Petpets Valoria & Tia. I believe the delusion creation process is speeding up, and getting more psychotic as time goes by. I've told Dr. Mohammed I'm concerned about this, and he says I'm "just trying to add to my online FAMILY". I want this entire process to SLOW DOWN.

        Thing is, I introduced my BF to a few "male enhancement" drugs back when the fifth Neopet Heliose was conceived, one of which was sperm volumizer, now he uses the sperm volumizer to his advantage in order to keep me under his control. Even though I've asked him to stop, he hasn't listened.

My old doctor lived in Surrey and I was in Langley, so she couldn't really treat many of my problems (I'm from BC). My new GP is doing a better job, despite hearing some dissatisfied comments from other patients.
I have had issues with my weight in the past as well. I gained some when I was put on psychiatric medications when I was a teen, but I managed to take it off. I put it back on when I was living on my own and I'd stopped going to the gym, got addicted to junk food and gained about 70 pounds in one year.
My "kids" are just Neopets. It's online "pets" site where you can adopt these creatures and basically just raise them. There are games where you can earn NP (Neopian money) and freebies, it's a good place.
What accompanied the pelvic cramps was vomiting, nausea, chills and leg cramps, lasted the entire weekend too. I feel better now, but I'll see how things go.

Hi Nalia,

In my opinion you are doing the right thing with getting professional help with your problems. You may want to talk to your new doctor about your diet to make sure you are eating properly.
