I normally do not talk about my health issues but lately I have had some really bad diagnoses. I have been diagnosed with diabetes, arthritis, hypothyroidism, nodules in my throat, a breast mammogram that has suspicious lumps or masses, GERD, and the latest from yesterday, it was found that I have fractures in my spine which is either caused by osteoporosis or bone cancer. I'm hoping it's osteoporosis because that is treatable. If it's cancer then I'm doomed. I am in tremendous and constant pain. I'm just asking for prayers & good vibes from you all because I am scared & overwhelmed by all of this. It's just a bit more than I can handle.:sad1:

Hi, Shelly, I will be praying for you and sending good thoughts your way. That is a lot to deal with all at one time and I know the pain makes it harder. I hope that it is not cancer but if it is, the treatments are much better than they used to be and it is not necessarily a death sentence. I have been cancer free for six years now. Take care honey and I am available if you want to pm me sometime.

Shelly, that sure is a lot to digest all at once. Just take it one item at a time. You are in my thoughts. I hope they have given you the worst case scenario.

Stay positive!

Shelly, you most certainly are in my thoughts and have my prayers. I can understand how hard it may be to open up, but there are many, many of us who really care what you are going through. I am so sorry for your constant pain--I will be praying for healing and peace of mind for you. I do hope that sharing with others--some of which even personally know what you are going through can offer you help.

I go back to the doctor on Nov. 28th for another kind of x-ray where they inject a dye into you and I think there's more blood tests they want to take. So I won't know anything else until the first week of December. Still in pain obviously until after then. I'm not sure what they will do next. Could possibly be a spinal operation. Depends on what they find out on the 28th. In the meantime I try not to overdo things and take more breaks and rest. I do keep very busy with my sewing, crochet and knitting so I can kind of block the pain out of my mind during the daytime. Night time/bedtime is when it hurts like hell. I have all these medical problems/diseases that have been diagnosed all at once and it's pretty overwhelming. But at least I'm glad I found some doctors that have finally diagnosed everything. So maybe sooner or later I can get some relief!:flower:
Thank you all for the kind words and warm thoughts!:toothy4:

Please keep us posted on how it goes on the 28th, if you get a chance.
