Oct 22, 2011 · Infra Renal Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm and Coronary Artery Disease in Aortic Aneurysms

I want to know if anyone else is dealing with these two life threatening conditions at the same time, and how are you coping with it physically and mentally?

Oct 22, 2011 · I new to this and I am going through some tough time in Just Want to Talk

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
