I new to this and I am going through some tough time

Posted by @plj44, Oct 22, 2011

I new to this and I am going through some tough time right now. I have been diagnosed with an Infra renal Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm, Type 2 Diabetes, Hypothyroidism, Hypertension, and Coronary Artery Disease. It has been very hard to convey to doctors or anyone else for that matter how hard it is for me to function on a daily basis. I am young and I find it hard to do simple things that most find easy. Although my job is sedentary it’s a stressful job working for the Government. I tried to file for disability just to be denied and was told to seek a counselor and go to vocation rehab to find a less stressful job. I was very insulted when I left, and they made me feel less than a person. I have never been one to complain about my health, but it has been brought to my attention I have two life threatening conditions. The one that scares me the most is the aneurysm I have no clue what it is doing in my body. I have to wait a period of six months before they will do another ct scan, but in the mean time how am I suppose to feel. I am a very spiritual person and I don’t think a counselor can help me cope with what I am going through. It may work for others just not for me. I rather seek the peace of God before I pay someone to ask me questions with a question. I respect those who chose to go that route, but people think I am crazy for my choice. All this is new to me and my body seems to be breaking down everyday. I don’t feel that my specialists nor primary care doctor is taking my aneurysm seriously and how it is affecting me mentally. I do feel in time God will give me peace with this but there is more to my story that I am dealing with but too long to put in my first post. I just wonder has anyone else been through what I am going through. Feel like a walking time bomb
