Lulu, pituitary bio

I was diagnosed with Cushing's disease September 2007. I've had transnasal surgery 10/2007 and stereotactic surgery 8/2008. Both surgeries have failed.

I feel worse every day that passes by. I have all the typical symptoms. I've gained 80 lbs, moon face, central obesity, high blood pressure, migraines, blurred vision, prominent buffalo hump, osteoporosis, very fatigued, weak muscles, muscle pain, fast palpitations, I just feel terrible.

I'm afraid to go to sleep every night not knowing if im going to wake up. I just keep wondering how will I know when the time is near for me to go. What am I going to start feeling? Will my organs start to shut down?

I know im at a high risk for a stroke because im so overweight. My current cortisol is in the 200's. I took ketaconozole for a month and ended up in the hospital because the medication was affecting my liver.

So im currently not doing anything about Cushing's. I just feel the light at the end of my tunnel keeps getting dimmer. I just feel sooooo tired all the time, I feel like my life is being sucked out of me. My eyes are so tired it's hard to keep them focused.... Im so tired of Cushing's I don't know what to do anymore.
