Sorry to hear about your problems. Has your physician had any recommendations for addressing your weight gain? It sounds like it may be the root of many of your other health problems. Both diabetes and sleep apnea (I have both, as well) can be improved significantly with weight loss. If his only solution is to prescibe more medications, I would start shopping around for a new Doctor. All of those meds may just be treating the symptoms without addressing the underlying problem. Hope you can find a supportive source of real medical care, and not just another pill pushing enabler. Will keep you in my prayers.
