Hello again acro-family. I have not been around much because I have been ill. It has been two years since my diagnosis and I am just now getting to see someone that may be able to help me (because of insurance,of course). I am so incredibly frustrated with this entire Acro journey I have been on. So much irreparable damage has been caused and it seems like they are always adding new conditions to my already long list. I just found out this morning that my parathyroid levels have doubled and the doctor believes I have hyperparathyroidism. I read the symptoms and it definitely matches the new symptoms I have been having. I just want this all to be over. I want to smile again. I want my kids to have their mom back. I don't want to cry any more. This disease has literally taken nearly everything from me....We have sold everything we own with the exception of most of our clothes, our television and our beds just to get by this far because I can not handle working full time at this point. Social Security disability keeps turning me down, saying that my disease only causes discomfort!!! If that it not a kick in the face! Every time I am sent to the ER I am treated like a hypochondriac. I am sorry everyone but I just needed to vent a little and it is hard to do with other people who simply have no idea what I am dealing with. Even my therapist has dropped me because I can not seem to remember when I have an appointment. Since my stroke in May my brain has changed and doesn't quite work the same. I found out that is a symptom of this new thyroid disease as well. Would it really kill her to call me the day before or the day of just to say please come. She always calls me the day to say I missed. I am just at my wits end with this. I think if I was alone I would deal much better with this but being a single mom I know my children depend on me for everything and I have to be strong.....even when I do not want to be. The stress is endless. Thanks for listening to me........I appreciate it.

So my daughter, who will be 30 in a few months, says she thinks she has varicose veins, as she can't figure out what else it could be. Only in one leg, and is so bad it is hard to sleep at night. She is in excellent shape, really exercises a lot, and eats well... not at all overweight. Anyone else have any issues with this? I did find that it can go with PKD. She was reading that there are...
