Newly Diagnosed

From: Melissa


I'm soon to be 23 and was just told about 3wks ago that I have VV. This has been going on know for a year and 1/2. For some reason it came on after the birth of my 2nd son. At first it was happening quite a bit. Now it's just kinda here and there. It scares my husband when I have an episode. He really doesn't understand what's going on with my body; I don't either. I get so scared. I work but I am on the road a good bit and alone with my 4 yr. old a good bit. It's very scary for him when he doesn't know what's wrong with mommy. If anyone has any suggestions on how to handle VV please contact me at
