April's Story

I do not have much of a story since I just found out today that I am adrenal hormone depleted. I am 29, almost 30 in a few days and I have Cushing's and possible Addison's. I have these lovely red stripes all over my body. I have already gone through menopause so I can not have any more children. I swell up all the time. I ache in every possible place. I have serious problems with sleeping. I suffer from debilitating migraines... And now, I wonder why I am being punished with all this. I am usually the one that tells everyone else to believe in God and I am the one turning away from Him and the church. I do not know if it is from embarrassment or what. I don't know really what to think about all this... I am sick to my stomach and scared.
