On Monday, February 11, 2008 I was diagnosed with Congenital Adrenal Hyperplasia. My endocrinologist told me it is a major metabolic disorder I have had since childhood. Luckily it is a more milder form, or I would have possibly died by this point. This is after 24 years of going from Dr to Dr and having my symptoms dismissed, and being told that things are because I am fat. Finding out I am fat because of the disease was almost a relief. I am still adjusting to a life where everyone around me needs to be aware of what I got, and if I miss even one of those tiny little steroid pills I will get very sick.
