Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 12 months ago.
So what do we need to talk about now?
Customer: replied 12 months ago.
Im kinda freaking out. Lab is doing an antibody id on my blood and they called and asked me a million questions
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 12 months ago.
I need more information on that
Customer: replied 12 months ago.
Well im O with neg Rh and positive antibody screen. So they sent my sample for an antibody screen. The lab asked me all sorts of question like if ive ever had a transfusion, if ive ever had a rhogam shot, what meds ive taken, ect ect
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 12 months ago.
OK--I didn't think it would be too long until something else cropped up to worry you. You may have some unusual antibodies but that won't affect your baby in the least
Customer: replied 12 months ago.
Promise
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 12 months ago.
Promise
Customer: replied 12 months ago.
What if its nit ok
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 12 months ago.
I don't understand the question
Customer: replied 12 months ago.
What if my bloods all screwy and it affects my baby
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 12 months ago.
Unusual antibodies are only a problem sometimes with either donating blood or in getting blood transfusions. Please stop with the what if's
Customer: replied 12 months ago.
I have no problems donating blood
Customer: replied 12 months ago.

This article says if i have positive antibidies then there will be problems with the baby

Customer: replied 12 months ago.
Promise me everythinga going to be ok
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 12 months ago.
Seriously--you shouldn't research things like that article if you are going to pick out very small parts of it and obsess on those. There's no chance that any antibodies you have are going to harm your baby
Customer: replied 12 months ago.
Promise?
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 12 months ago.
Promise
Customer: replied 12 months ago.
I have the anti d antibody b. is this because i got rhogam?
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 12 months ago.
yes
Customer: replied 12 months ago.
So im not going to be worried anymore
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 12 months ago.
You shouldn't be, no
Customer: replied 12 months ago.
My mom says when i have this kid i should go back to school
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 12 months ago.
Might be a good idea but we're starting to chat again
Customer: replied 12 months ago.
Anything you wantvto know
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 12 months ago.
Not really--have you at least quelled the worry wart demon for now?
Customer: replied 12 months ago.
I certainly hope so
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 12 months ago.
OK--time to close the page then and let me know if and when something else comes up. Enjoy the freedom of peace of mind

I shouldnt have watched law & order svu im having flashbacks
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 11 months ago.
Sorry--just got back on
Customer: replied 11 months ago.
Why are you never online at night
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 11 months ago.
Still very tired at night--just relaxing, eating and going to bed
Customer: replied 11 months ago.
I think i have a fissure. What do i do for it
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 11 months ago.
Some cortisone cream and Sitz baths and time
Customer: replied 11 months ago.
It really stinkin hurts
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 11 months ago.
Don't start chatting--that's all you can do for it for now
Customer: replied 11 months ago.
I had flashbacks last night
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 11 months ago.
You told me. As in bad dreams?
Customer: replied 11 months ago.
Yes. And just images in my head.
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 11 months ago.
So what was the TV show about?
Customer: replied 11 months ago.
It was law '& order svu.
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 11 months ago.
You told me that but what about the episode gave you the flashbacks?
Customer: replied 11 months ago.
The criminal tied people up and did yucky stuff to them. My brother did that to me once. And inhave a scar from the rope
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 11 months ago.

So why do you watch shows like that? And why didn;'t you shut it off the minute you found out what it was about?

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
Cuz i like the show and it was a new season and i thought id be ok. You cant be mad at me for this
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 11 months ago.
Not mad but you forced yourself to watch the whole episode?
Customer: replied 11 months ago.
Yes. I should have been fine
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 11 months ago.
I don't suppose that's the only time you've seen a TV show with that particular theme?
Customer: replied 11 months ago.
Usually this shows not that bad
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 11 months ago.
Well, guess you'll just have to endure the flashbacks for now if they continue
Customer: replied 11 months ago.
Nothing else i can do
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 11 months ago.
Not really short of talking to your therapist
Customer: replied 11 months ago.
This sucks. Im so dumb
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 11 months ago.
Chatting again
Customer: replied 11 months ago.
I have a question. It constantly feels like i have to pass stool but i cant
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 11 months ago.
Do you pass any gas?
Customer: replied 11 months ago.
Yes. Is it possible it could just be swollen so stool cant get out. My stool isnt hard its soft so its not constipation. I can push for half hour and only get a tiny amount out
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 11 months ago.
Not that swollen. More likely just some colon spasms that make it feel like you need to have a bowel movement
Customer: replied 11 months ago.
I used a suppository lastnight. When u push to have a bm it feels like it closes up on the inside
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 11 months ago.
Not sure what you mean by that
Customer: replied 11 months ago.
I think somethings not right
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 11 months ago.
That didn't help me
Customer: replied 11 months ago.
When i was putting in the suppository i push like i was going to have a bm it closed around my finger
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 11 months ago.
Probably you're having anal sphincter spasms from the fissure
Customer: replied 11 months ago.
I feel disgusting
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 11 months ago.
That's wasting space
Customer: replied 11 months ago.
Do i tell my gi dr?
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 11 months ago.
Of course
Customer: replied 11 months ago.
What will he do
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 11 months ago.
Oh come on--just let him take a look at you
Customer: replied 11 months ago.
You know how panicked i get even judt thinking aboutcpeople touching me down there
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 11 months ago.
Then don't call him and just ride this out
Customer: replied 11 months ago.
What would you tell me to do if i was your patient
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 11 months ago.
Ride it out
Customer: replied 11 months ago.
So i dont have to have anyone look at me or touch me down there
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 11 months ago.
I think it will pass
Customer: replied 11 months ago.
Im sorry if im a pain in thr butt. Im not trying to be. I just keep having all sorts of issues
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 11 months ago.
That's OK
Customer: replied 11 months ago.
Will i ever be ok with people touching/looking at me down there
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 11 months ago.
Eventually I think so
Customer: replied 11 months ago.
I think thats whatwent wrong with martys and my relationship
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 11 months ago.
Oh I think it's a lot more than than and mostly on Marty's part
Customer: replied 11 months ago.
How can you be with someone who wont let you touch them
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 11 months ago.
Then you leave them--you don't do all the nasty and hateful things Marty did
Customer: replied 11 months ago.
If i would just let him do them he wouldnt have had to force himself on me to do them
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 11 months ago.
I'm talking about Marty the person and your relationship with him was unhealthy all the time--not talking just about the sex part
Customer: replied 11 months ago.
Im just saying
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 11 months ago.
And we're chatting again
Customer: replied 11 months ago.
Would exposure therapy help. Just let people touch me and ill get over it?
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 11 months ago.
No--you need the kind of therapy I've already told you about
Customer: replied 11 months ago.
What do you think would happen if i tried exposure therapy
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 11 months ago.
It wouldn't work for you--you need to deal with all the anger and hurt and resentment of the past
Customer: replied 11 months ago.
Why not! I could let marty try
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 11 months ago.
It won't work and it would hurt you more--trust me. And hands off Marty until he straightens himself out
Customer: replied 11 months ago.
I hate that i cant let peope touch me. Iget so mad at myself. I hate myself for this. Why cant i just be like normal people? Why do i have to be such a freak? I think im pathetic. Im pregnant fot christ sake how am i going to let a dr deliver my baby. I really need you i am freaking out
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 11 months ago.
Sorry--had to be off. Hopefully you can throw yourself completely into therapy and get further along. Listen--let's leave this page since it's so long
