1 in 5 people will have a pituitary tumor in their lifetime. 1 in 600 will have a large tumor like I had. Sadly, only 1 in 100,000 will ever be diagnosed. 660 more words
Interestingly, in spite of the "healthy lifestyle" that has been forced upon me by diabetes, I still can't get below 300 pounds despite the fact that I exercise for an hour plus a day a bare minimum of four days a week and eat one whole fuckton less than I used to when I had an actual appetite. It pisses me off that although I am physically active (considered a positive thing) and have a reasonably "healthy" diet (also considered a positive thing) I am still considered a horrible, horrible excuse for a human being because my body refuses to adhere to social standards of attractiveness. So, for the record, anyone who adheres to the stupid idea that all fat people are unhealthy, or even that anyone has an obligation to be healthy, can kiss my fat, diabetic, hypothyroid, middle-aged ass.
