New to the board and scared

My name is Shirl and I am 33 yrs old. I have had PCOS since my late 20's and have lost one baby. There are a lot of medical problems with me, including psych stuff and diabetes, which they just had to take me off of metformin and put me on insulin due to liver numbers going up. I'm currently weaning myself off of almost all of my psych meds... they won't let me go off of all of them, and we'll start ttc again as soon as that is done. There is also the possibility of my cervix being very closed off. I'm using Mirena now to help it stay open and to try to make it easier for the first few months. All of this scares me so badly, as does the thought of losing another baby. I guess I'm just looking for a support system as I start this crazy roller coster ride. Thanks for listening :smileyhappy:
