First, it was chronic depression.

Next, it was Hashimoto's Thyroiditis and subsequent hypothyroidism.

After that, Fibroids in my uterus and a hysterectomy.

Then came gall bladder and surgery.

After that, diabetes Type II.

Soon, NASH/Non-alcoholic fatty liver

Include hyperlipidemia, high blood pressure, and high cholesterol

Followed by Kidney Cancer.

Now, breast cancer metastasized to my bones.

I am so very tired of the things that can go wrong with this earth suit.

Is it even worth it to try? I am tired, achy, mad, and sad.

Thank you for allowing this forum to express the frustration my health issues are causing. I am finding my greatest challenge to be in keeping my blood glucose (bg) controlled with the added stress of the metastatic breast cancer and the pain in my back and leg. I'm T2 diabetic and do have insulin both long and short acting, but for some reason I feel that I am a failure when I take it. I feel that my body has betrayed me especially with the new and totally unexpected Invasive Lobular Carcinoma (ILC) diagnosis.

I understand where you are coming from. I had melanoma 29 years ago, breast cancer 12 years ago (had bilateral mastectomy, chemo) and now stage 4 lung cancer. I also have type II diabetes on insulin, hypertension and elevated cholesterol. I am retired. People ask me what I do with my free time. It is basically dealing with all my medical issues! However, it is worth it. I have never once thought of giving up. The alternative is not better,
