Question Lifelong Mystery

My entire life I have had terrible luck when it comes to illnesses and my general health. When I was younger I would constantly have eye infections and respiratory problems. I have had pneumonia at least 10 times and am only 27 years old- the first bout that I remember was when I was 7. As a young adult I developed stage 4 cervical carcinoma in situ (21y/o) Ovarian cysts (21y/o)and endometriosis (24y/o) These resulted in a cervical conization and ultimately a total hysterectomy and bilateral oopherectomy at 25y/o. I have also suffered from seizures and carry a diagnosis of generalized idiopathic epilepsy. My epilepsy has been extremely difficult to control. Even with high doses of 2 AED's (Depakote/Trileptal) I have a minimum of 1-2 seizures every month that require IM Ativan injections. I have many orthopaedic problems of unknown origin and just underwent surgery to repair a labral tear in my hip on 7/15/11. My Ortho MD said I am a "orthopaedic nightmare from my waist down". I have had a bilateral eye infection that is still clearing up after lasting six months with antibiotic, antiviral and even betadine wash treatments. I seem to catch anything that I come in contact with and have no idea why. No one else in my family has issues like this and I am SO frusterated because no one can understand what I am going through. My boyfriend says he would never believe my poor luck (regarding my health) if he didn't see it with his own two eyes. Does anyone have any ideas as to why I am having all of these issues or a similar story? Any suggestions on how to cope?
