Tiffany's Story

I am 22 years old. I am happily married to my high school sweetheart and we have been together since age 16 and married for almost 4 years. I have 4 cats- they are my children. I love photography and music- I could not live without the two. I am a college student studying Human Services- I want to become a High School guideance couselor.

I have been dealing with quite a bit of medical problems. I have five blood disorders- von Willebrand Disease Type 1, Factor V Leiden, MTHFR mutation, Protien C Resistance, and Lupus Anti-coagulant. I was diagnosed with these at age 16. Before that I dealt with weight gain and loss, scoliosis, arthritis, and anxiety.

After graduating High school- I gained more than 60 pounds and more problematic symptoms. Finally in Jan 2006- my doctor then tested my prolactin levels and found a tumor. I have had MRIs done and have been on Bromocriptine since then. In July 2006 I had a tumor removed from my left ovary- it was benign.

As of the moment I am still deaaling with significant weight gain, even though I work out. A new stretch mark shows up everyday and I am getting more worried that I will never be happy with myself again.
