Let's begin with a list of my medical conditions/history...
I have metal wires and screws that hold my jaw together from a surgery I had in 1991.
In 2001 I was diagnosed with skin cancer and had it removed.
In 2002 I had major back surgery and now hold 4 metal rods, 10 screws and a plastic vertebra in my lower lumbar.
Also in 2002 I had another skin cancer spot removed in the same area as the first.
In 2004 the skin cancer reappeared, still in the same area. It was removed and I did radiation.
In 2005 I did another round of radiation because the skin cancer returned, for the fourth time in the same area. This time the radiation left a hideous scar.
In 2006 I had surgery on both of my eyes to correct my lazy eye.
In 2008 I had a hysterectomy (removal of my uterus) due to several cysts that would not go away.
In late 2008 I had a seizure while out with some friends and was later diagnosed with Epilepsy, which is extremely rare at the age of 34.
This year my doctor discovered an area on the inside of my right thigh riddled with skin cancer, this time in the form of tiny tumors. I did radiation after having it removed.
Also this year I was told I am going through menopause, most likely from having my uterus removed.
Today I was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes!
So, to wrap things up...
I am a diabetic, epileptic, bionic woman (metal in my jaw and back), cancer ridden, no uterus, menopausal woman who probably should have a depressant prescribed to help with the depression that I am sure is to follow!
How did I celebrate my new found medical issue?
